Teresa shares her thoughts on Caroline and Lauren's struggle with weight.

on Oct 1, 2012

Then you had her big storyline all season: hovering over Lauren's shoulder and obsessing about her weight. I would NEVER allow that to be my storyline. Poor Lauren. When Caroline said in one of her on-camera interviews that she "couldn't even relate" to Lauren's struggle because she'd "been tiny her whole life," I realized what the problem was: Caroline. You should embrace your children and how they look, not constantly remind them how miserable they are, making them even more miserable.

 

And let's get this straight: Lauren was 185 pounds. Not 285. She's 24. Do you think major surgery chopping up your stomach is the answer for that extra 30 pounds? I don't. The ones who are sending out the bad message to kids in America are Lauren and Caroline for acting like Lauren was a prehistoric beast before and the lap band saved her life. The lap band surgery is a miracle for some people, for people who are extremely unhealthy, who have tried everything, who've had babies and are older with slow metabolisms. Look at Lisa Lampanelli. I know she tried everything, and the lap band worked wonders for her. She looks amazing! That's the person who should get lap band, not a 24-year-old with a controlling mother. Sorry, but that's my opinion.

I do want to apologize to anyone watching and any of my friends and family if it seemed like I only think skinny is beautiful. That's absolutely not true. My mother is the most beautiful woman I know and she's not a toothpick. My husband isn't super skinny and I call him "juicy and delicious." He's sexy to me. My friends are all different sizes and all beautiful. What your body looks like doesn't matter to me at all (unless you're a big public hypocrite about it!). I know the "blubber" comment was really random, so I want to explain where it came from...
