Is Fat Women v. Thin Women really a thing? Are thin moms the enemy of most plus-size moms out there?
Did that first sentence make you cheer? Shake your head in disgust? Want to crawl under a rock?
ABC’s American Housewife is tackling all of our totally uncomfortable feelings about body image. They’re using the words no one uses, telling the truths we bury deep, and making viewers really uncomfortable. And we’re totally intrigued and, sometimes, totally disgusted by the show.
In this episode of Best Friend Banter, we’re deep diving on the new comedy originally titled “The Second Fattest Housewife in Westport,” to figure out why we’re cringing every time the word fat is uttered (which is, like, every five minutes!) and whether American’s Housewife’s take on body image and body acceptance is outlandish and offensive, or refreshing and revolutionary.
