When the movie "Precious" came out to rave reviews and accolades for the young star who portrayed the titular character, Hollywood went on a rare, fat-hating hiatus for actresses and lauded the two heavy female stars, Mo'Nique and Gabourey Sidibe, showering them with awards and applause.

This is very unHollywood like behavior for a town where comedian and actress Margaret Cho revealed that network executives pulled her aside and told her to lose weight for her "American Girl" smallscreen series, or else. Her rapid weight loss endangered her health.
Fitness diva Susan Powter has seemingly been rejuvenated of late, looking very refreshed and ready to make waves in popular media once again. The fitness guru has taken on the NAAFA and all groups that promote fat acceptance, saying Gabourey Sidibe is dreaming if she thinks her current state is acceptable.
Powter took to YouTube to warn Gabourey Sidibe about her weight.
"Let me tell you something, Gabby... your weight is going to affect everything in your life -- from every breath you take, because a human body carrying that much fat is under the burden," she says in her video.
Powter concurs with Howard Stern's withering remarks that Sidibe is never going to attain any great Hollywood goal other than Precious.
"Howard is telling the truth," Susan continues.
Stern had said: "There's the most enormous, fat black chick I've ever seen. She is enormous. Everyone's pretending she's a part of show business and she's never going to be in another movie."
Powter added, "Can we at least stop denying that it's real? Gabby, dear, here's the thing: You are way too young, way too young to be this diseased. Diseased. Not comfortable. Not connected with your body. You can be fat and anything you would like to be, but your chances are less in many industries in much of the world because we live in a world that judges that."
Powter promises to be back:
