Haters Gonna Hate

There is something so disheartening about women putting other women down about their looks.  We've heard a lot of this lately, especially about Ashley Judd and her mysteriously puffy face.  She recently spoke out about this - not to say she's going to lose weight, but to address the ridiculousness of the media firestorm that the changes in her face due to severe sinusitis caused.   Good on her for standing up for herself...but that doesn't mean people are listening.

Puffy face or not, she still is gorgeous not to mention ballsy.  Go get 'em girl!

Kelly Osbourne, as graceful and classy as one can be while working on the E! Network, recently backed up her initial claim that she would have no problem calling her nemesis Christina Aguilera fat to her face, having already so on TV.   On the heels of Ashley Judd's blog, this is pretty sad to see.  It's one thing to talk smack about someone's looks because that's your job (and not an honourable job by any means), but it's another thing to stand by it after having some time to think about it.  Totally and utterly immature on Kelly's part.   And I'm sorry, I don't care how many times Christina Aguilera called her fat (which is not right either), it doesn't make what Kelly Osbourne is saying now ok.  Stooping to someone else's level of nastiness does NOT make your own vitriolic behaviour acceptable.  Never.

There seems to be a lot of that going on lately...women hating on women.  We can try to analyze it all we want but the thought I keep coming back to, over and over is:

Rise above, take the criticism as fuel, and move on to better things.  Words to live by, don't you think?

I'll be getting off my soapbox now...!

Have a great weekend!
Miss M :)
