The Real Story
This was a witty tongue-in-cheek look at the modeling industry from the middle. Like the author I tried modeling, like the author I was plus sized; unlike the author I got very little work. At 6-4 and anywhere from 205 to 220 my size was a major drawback. I do have the wonderful memory of being in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina standing hip deep in the Atlantic ocean in March, hoping not to die of hypothermia.
Her story of trying for a part in a movie was poignantly amusing; I remember being told to "walk bigger" in my one and only stab at being in the movies. Evidently I didn't walk bigger.
She touches on wannabe parents, runway mothers, insensitivity to the point of heartlessness and the lack of the humanity in a business that isn't nearly as glamorous as it might appear to be from the outside. This is a very good two and a half hour listen.
