“Chubby” Gretchen: “More” 4U

Yesterday Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson was one of nine women profiled by More.com (“Celebrating Women 40+”) in an article entitled, “More Beautiful at 40 Than 20.” In a article by author/editor Genevieve Monsma, Monsma writes, “Bye-bye chubby cheeks, pimples, heavy makeup and bad perms.” In the interview, Gretchen discussed her improved body image now from approximately two decades ago as a beauty queen.

Gretchen elucidates, “My natural body is chubby so walking around in a swimsuit was not within my comfort zone.” Even after winning the Miss Minnesota and Miss America crowns in 1989 (pageants where talent played a major portion in the decisions), she seemed compelled to discuss her weight struggles with the media: After doing so, one less than charitable headline that followed read, “Blimpo Wins Miss America.” Now Gretchen asserts, “I feel so much prettier now than I did when I wore that crown: I’m more sure of myself and I feel I deserve the recognition I get.”

Explaining her new comfort level, Gretchen explains, “Now I love my job and have two small children who have given me a purpose in life.” She elaborated, “I’ve learned how to take care of myself and stay slim without being so obsessive—I run three miles, five days a week and that does the trick.”  Then appearing to embrace a childish naivete, she continued, “I also have a husband who tells me I look better when I don’t try too hard, something I’ve come to believe too.”

Gretchen, do you always believe Casey, too, when you ask him if your clothes make your butt look big before going out on a date?

    These days some women would prefer their butt look big.

    Awww, give a girl a break. She’s a beautiful human. My human seems to think she’d be nice to have around since he mentions her as one of the best looking women on TV. Besides she has a brain to go with the looks.

    […] over Kiran Chetry and whether she’s exposing enough skin, Jake hit a new low with this cheap attack on Gretchen Carlson. We assume he’s still sore over Kiran leaving Fox News for relative […]

    Childish, chubby, and naive? Killing(or taking shots at) two birds with one stone, Jake? Is this “First Blood” or “Rambo”? I’ll watch from the sidelines.

    Tom, who’s taking shots now? Gretchen might not like to be compared to “two birds.” :-)

    Ha! It wasn’t Gretchen about whom I was speaking. It was the commentators. Like I said, I’ll watch from the sidelines. Pass the Milk Duds.
