SHONDA RHIMES DOESN’T LIKE THE WEIGHT LOSS COMPLIMENTS
Thursday, Jun 29, 2017

Weight loss doesn’t mean a thing in Shondaland!

Shonda Rhimes lost 150lbs, and while she looks fabulous, she hates that people are treating her differently.

Shonda Rhimes talked about the difference in her email newsletter called “Shondaland.”

“What the hell did they see me as before? How invisible was I to them then? How hard did they work to avoid me? What words did they use to describe me? What value did they put on my presence at a party, a lunch, a discussion? After I lost weight, I discovered that people found me valuable. Worthy of conversation. A person one could look at. A person one could compliment. A person one could admire. A person. You heard me. I discovered that NOW people saw me as a PERSON.”

As for now, she notes that she is the same person she was prior to the weight loss.

“These days, I feel like a chunky spy in a thinner world. Strangers tell fat jokes in front of me. Jokes not meant for me. But … completely for the woman I used to be 150 pounds ago. The woman I could be again one day. The woman I will always be inside. Because being thinner doesn’t make you a different person. It just makes you thinner.”

What do you think? Is it inappropriate to comment on another person’s weight loss?
