die friseuse (the hairdresser)



After being turned down to work at a hair salon because of her figure, a financially struggling hair dresser works to open her own shop.

Haven't actually seen this one myself yet I've yet to find the english version, but what I've seen of the german version looks promising

There is the episode of CSI where a BBW accidentally smothers a guy during the course of the Vegas bash.
I'm LMAO at the coincidence here'

Just the other night, I was going through my collection of VHS tapes, saw a tape with "CSI BBW" written on the label, and watched it.

The major female character was kind of cute.

Was the bash portrayed in the episode accurate? I've never heard of a "message box" anywhere, and the episode would have one believe that men were hard to attain and women were desperate (usually, the reverse was true).

"Monster House" 2006.
An animated and fun kid's movie about a haunted house in a suburb community, and the dangers of going near it on Halloween. This haunted house eats any trespassers.

Constance
Kathleen Turner provides the voice for Constance, the 675lb circus giantess. Constance herself is not in the film very long, but her ghost provides the haunting in question.

There was another TV show. I don't remember the name of it. Might have been Homicide Life on the Street, but maybe not that show.

There was an episode I believe it started with a crime scene investigation, recovering a dead body of a man who had been suffocated in his sleep. His wife, an ssbbw, was accused of manslaughter from accidentally rolling over onto his head.

I don't remember specifics at all, other than one scene where she was talking to paramedics or a medical examiner who was pleading with her to lose weight, and showed her a model heart. He/She said "this is a model of your heart, and it can't handle your weight." She grabbed the model, threw on the ground and stepped on, shattering it, and then said smugly "I guess it can't".

I have no clue where to begin looking for this show or this episode. Anyone remember anything like this?
The show was David E. Kelley creation "Picket Fences", which ran for 4 seasons from September 18, 1992 to April 24, 1996. The season 2 episode 17, episode was called "Squatter's Rights" it aired March 11, 1994 and featured Darlene Cates as Sophie Wallace as the wife in question.

"Fat Actress" 2005
This show was on the air for one season. It is about a dramatized version of Kirstie Alley's life, as she struggles to lose weight and revitalize her career as a Hollywood actress.

Kirstie Alley is the main actor of the series, playing a fictitious version of herself. Her fictional self follows the same struggle with weight loss as her real self did/does.

"Shallow Hal" 2001
This movie is about a man, Hal, who spends his life focused on the exterior beauty of a person. After being hypnotized by Tony Robbins, Hal can only see the inner beauty of people made manifest into physical attributes. He falls in love a woman named Rosemary, who he believes is the body equivalent of a fashion supermodel, when in fact Rosemary is a 300+lb ssbbw. Things take a further twist when he finds out that she is also the daughter of his boss.

Hal is played by Jack Black.

The SSBBW character of the film, Rosemary, is actually Gwyneth Paltrow in a body suit. However Ivy Snitzer, played Gwyneth's real body double in shots that were only neck down.
