Default MTV True Life: Happy Being Fat

According to the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, tonight (Monday, Jan. 21) MTV will air "True Life: I'm Happy Being Fat" at 10pm Eastern.

It is supposed to be a new show. They did "True Life: I'm Obese" a couple of years ago. That show featured 2 or 3 people who were considering or having weight loss surgery and one person who was happy being fat. This new show it seems may feature a gainer or feeder/feedee. Here's a little show gossip from a blog called The Rotund.

Also, if you have a second hour for vegging in front of the tv, watch A&E an hour earlier at 9pm Eastern for "Intervention" which will feature an "intervention" with a 550 lb 22 year-old. This one feels painful already.

We'll probably be watching both with an order of pizza and wings in front of us.

Yeah I already posted my hatred for the MTV bullcrap. They used me and my gf at the time for the show. 1 hour interview each, about 6 hours of footage, then they told us that they wanted to film us 5 hours a day for 2 days a week for a month. At that point we told them to f*@# off. They wanted to be like up our butts and they did not offer ANY compensation or payment. Screw them they suck I just hope Aeiry and I are not on TV tomorrow, cuz I'll have to like set MTV on fire. Hmmm how does one set broadcasted airwaves on fire. A lil help here!

i bet you they will focus on a football player or something like that for a guy and a plus size model for a girl. they wont touch on gainers or anything because that's still too touchy for the public to get a handle on

I think I emailed some people to be on that show. They emailed me some sort of questions to answer, turns out I was too chicken to return the email.

Self acceptance is wonderful. But only if the quality/characteristic you possess that you've learned to accept is popular with the general public.

I hate MTV!

I know one of the girls that's going to be on there. She's really cool.

I would have liked the separation between feederism and the others, but I can't expect that from MTV.
Soooooooooo.. I'll be mixed on it more than likely.

Will do!
I have to post one about Size Acceptance and Civil rights, and I plan on blogging about the show. I might do some Yoga whilst I'm watching it too: I got to stay limber.

The word on the fat street is that MTV had a real hard time finding people to be on this show, for various reasons, including the obvious bias of the producers during the filming of the segments.

They had the hardest time finding fat men to participate, fwiw.

Yeah... I know. I was hoping the site would update sometime today so I don't look like a dork. Entertainment Weekly had it on their list of shows not to miss this week. Hope they don't have the air date wrong.

I was contacted by Ben and his cohorts, Mary and I almost did the show, but like BigFusionNYC I didn't want to give up my time, I gotta work she had school, and I told him that being on MTV wasn't all that important to me.

he was floored, what an ass too... he harassed my mother big time, I gave him a piece of my mind tho.

That show FUCKING SUCKED, but had two ok halves at the same time. So one whole success out of a potential three wholes from six halves? Yea. Real nice.

Default mixed reviews

ok, so that pretty much went as good as expected to be, it couldve been alot worse
but still, half of it was just terrible and bias

the fat activist on campus was really good in my opinion, im glad she got her club started, though it looked like she wasnt going to get it (alot of the judges looked confused to why she needed it, well in this diet and beauty obsessed world, can they blame her?) i thought the SSBHM segment was alot better than expected, they didnt portray him as a complete freak, but the part that disappointed me was the 320 lb girl. She seemed vivacious and confident, but i think the segment will be misunderstood by alot of people. If she wants to lose weight for health reasons, good for her, but unfortunately alot of people will see it as :see, fat people arent REALLY confident and they just want to be thin like everyone else. If she ends the show losing weight, than that means she really didnt like herself and was embarrassed at being fat: clearly she was confident, but the way MTV did the show makes it seem like they werent completely happy, even a little miserable

but still it could have been worse, right?

it was lame....i knew it would be because we know and MTV nows that the world isn't ready for the REAL chub lovers to be out there. i think that guy that came from California was the only one on the show that really showed what a real FA was all about.

Well it was everything: Size/Fat Acceptance, Fat Admiration.... I don't know where the hell feederism came into play, but I think someone got confused in the middle (I'm sure it wasn't you TFG): I'm sensing MTV did, even though I SENT them a message trying to explain the differences five months ago? (SIGH) They're not learning.

Cool

Feederism probably came in because it has shock value and will get ratings. Superficially it does seem like a logical outgrowth of fat acceptance, doesn't it, though? If you think of size acceptance solely as the acceptance of a larger size, then what could be more accepting than encouragement?

I thought they did a good job. I don't think the stories/people were all that compelling, but I think the college student and the man used the opportunity to try to make something happen. In the meantime, we got a taste of each person's desires and struggles at least somewhat related to their experiences as fat people. I had the sense that once they set people into situations that the people were being who they were. It's not easy to get people to feel that comfortable when they're being filmed.

Did you watch the one about the alcoholics?
