Kerry Washington. Zoe Saldana. Gabrielle Union.
The three most popular African-American actresses on the big screen and television right now have many things in common, but the most prevailing thing that they share is their weight. They are all beautiful, yet fit into the Hollywood mold of “having to be thin” to make it. Same goes for music where the most commercial artists (Beyonce, Rihanna) must diet and stay in the gym. And let’s not start with models where they are forced to starve themselves to even get an agency deal. All three modes of entertainment portray an image to African-American woman that are unrealistic seeing that most of us have not been that thin since childhood. It can lead to many insecurities and negative viewpoints of ourselves and others within the community.

PS Charli- Too Fat For Fame

Yet, it only takes one to make a change and two-time Grammy Award winning singer Kelly Price may be that one. Price, whose weight has been the subject of criticism in the past, is currently casting for her new show “Too FAT For Fame”. She is producer of the upcoming reality show and who better than a beautiful plus-size woman as herself to help rise the careers that do not have any other platform to do so. As she states in her casting call video below:

“I can only imagine if I were to listen to all the people that told me I would never make it in this business because I was too fat”.

I am saluting Price for taking this major step to encourage and uplift those who do not have a major presence or voice in entertainment. I am hoping that this will give a jumpstart to the movement so that more plus-sized men AND women can have leading roles in movies, have a number one hit on Billboard, and capture the eye of everyone at New York Fashion week.
Submissions can be sent to : Submissions@TooFatForFame.com and though no deadline is announced yet, I would guess the sooner the better. Let’s all like their Facebook page so that realistic images of us can be seen everywhere. Let us know below if you or a friend will try to become a part of “Too FAT for Fame”.
