    Both of you are true on this subject.
    Dita represents the "old-school beauty" - from the times when women had curves everywhere. Nowadays the only curve in female body are the heels. :p
     
  2. :rofl: The Heels! :p

    Oh geez! I just realize I am in the Powder Room! Pardon my intrusion. :doh:

    I agree, Sheeplady. Bethany looks scary, but Dita looks healthy. I saw Kelly Ripa one day on tv and almost gasped at how scary skinny she was.

    That she is. That other gal is borderline insect.

    It is not just her weight- it is her complexion (it looks like she has seen way too much sun or too much fake tanner) and she looks exhausted. It makes me feel quite sorry for her- I am sure she has very little control over how she looks. (I imagine the network decides that.)

    That's just something my people say.. :D

    Intrude away (as long as you don't mock our feminine ways) :D

    :rofl:
    That was the word I was searching for: insect. :p

    She is too much - too little; and that is the definition of majority of girls out there nowadays.
    I know her look is dictated by the media, so:
    Dear Media,
    Your vision of beauty sucks!


    :D

    The media presents an unrealistic and often unhealthy portrayal of an "ideal" woman. However, I don't think Bethenny's appearance is media driven as much as ego driven. She's been hungry for the public eye for nearly a decade and sadly, has opted for too many cosmetic procedures to her face and unhealthy weight loss techniques to keep her weight down. She was pretty before, trim and natural looking, and looks to have mutated into scary celebrity zombie.

    I can believe this. I have seen pics of her and I thought she looked very thin. I tend to like a more voluptuous body frame a la Nicki Minaj or Lil Kim, which is why I keep my weight in the 140s. Despite her thin frame, I think she still looks very beautiful.

    Agreed. And the ironic thing is that, imho, the people who set forth these ridiculous body images, especially in fashion, are not even attracted to women in the first place.

    I have to say that over the years my opinion for Dita has changed. I used to not care for her that much, but followed her being that she was in Burlesque. However now, I enjoy what she does and even admire her -- especially for her business sense!

    That's just sad. She does look like she's had plastic surgery- I bet she was quite beautiful before that- now she looks "generic." I had never heard of her until I saw her show advertised on TV (I've never seen it). I remember telling my husband how sorry I felt for anyone who had a common name spelled phonetically. Apparently she was a reality TV star and was on Ellen so she's likely pretty famous and I don't have a clue. ;)

    I agree, Sheeplady.
    It's an industry like any other - except media does not produce machines, it makes female clones. :wink:

    (to tell you the truth I have NO idea who the lady in question is, since I live far, far away...) :D

    According to wikipedia she had a reality TV show that followed her wedding and during her first year of marriage. Which then fell apart. Now she has a talk show on afternoon broadcast television. They are heavily advertising the talk show. Lots of people are fighting over Oprah's viewers since she retired. (Oprah was a talk show host for over 20 years on a broadcast network and had the highest talk show television following. Her show dominated the 4pm Eastern time slot for daytime TV.)

    Oprah - I know her. :nod: That show was BIG.
    This girl in question... she's just one more forgettable face in the sea of similar face. [huh]
    (when I put it like that, I feel sorry for her)

    Not everyone can draw as much attention as Dita.

    I am a Dita addict. I was fortunate enough to attend 2 of her NYC shows & meet her afterwards. She knows my twitter account because her mom follows me & she told her assistant this is the girl who posts all the pics before I even see them! Haha she said she should hire me. She is so tiny in person. I'm fascinated how someone can be so skinny but still look curvy. She is incredibly gracious to her fans & so down to earth. Truly beautiful inside & out ❤️

    I have a couple questions about her shows since I wasn't able to attend when she was here in Chicago. How long is her show and I know she does 4 acts and has about 5 other performers with her... how many acts do they do each?
