Mike & Molly Page 1
If you haven’t seen Bridesmaids yet, then you won’t know that actress Melissa McCarthy basically stole the show right out from under her co-stars. And now that she’s made millions of people laugh their faces off (and won an Emmy for her efforts in the TV show Mike and Molly), she’s going to address something she’s been thinking about since she was a kid: plus-sized clothing.
In all the controversy over Maura Kelly’s anti-fatties post for Marie Claire, the one side we haven’t heard from is Mike & Molly, the CBS sitcom that inspired Kelly’s post in the first place. Last night, Fancast caught up with creator Mark Roberts who had some choice words for Kelly, as well as the magazine.
On Monday, Marie Claire blogger Maura Kelly published a post titled, “Should ‘Fatties’ Get a Room? (Even on TV?)”. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the piece was incendiary (though we’ve excerpted a few sections after the jump just to get your heart rate going), but what has been most surprising about the controversy is Marie Claire’s response.
