(This is one of my classic posts & since our very own Squish is getting married…I figured it was a good time to bring it back. In totally unrelated news, if you like what you see & are on Twitter, you can share it very easily with that pretty little button that’s on the right side *points* kthnxbai)

It always suprises me how amazingly shallow people are these days. I was listening to the radio this morning and there was a woman on there who wanted advice about the following issue.
Her wedding is in January…and one of her bridesmaids has gained some weight so the “bride” wants the friend out of the wedding party. She just doesn’t know how to tell her without hurting her feelings.
“Hey…I know we’ve been friends for 9 years…but you know…you’re kinda fat now. I mean, you munching on twinkies and spending your nights with Ben & Jerry’s is going to make MY wedding pictures look bad. I’m sure that you’ll be uncomfortable being the only one who isn’t a size 4 since all of my other friends are skinny. I mean, come on…when have you ever seen me with a girl that was too big to fit into Limited Too clothes? So…I’m going to ask you to not be a bridesmaid anymore…but you can TOTALLY hand out programs or something…ya know, because you’re my friend and I love you.”
As if I wasn’t baffled enough, the DJ started taking calls…and the “bride” had the audacity to tell people that she thought they must be fat because they’re disagreeing with her.
“Well, I talked to the other bridesmaids and they completely agree with me. I mean, we can’t have her taking over the entire picture. My fiance? Yeah, he’s OK with it because you know, he’s stupid enough to fall in love with a shallow person like me. It’s because I look like a barbie and I give good head…”
Ya know, I bet you the bitch has an ugly face. Someone with a heart that ugly HAS to have an ugly face, no matter how tone her body is…
“I began going to a personal trainer the day I got engaged”.
Yes, because being incredibly thin in your wedding pictures is the most important thing.
“Do you know how much it would cost to get extra material for her dress?”..The DJ asked if he covered the cost of the material, if that would solve the issue.
“Well, I think that she would just be uncomfortable the whole day because of her weight and I honestly don’t need that stress on my wedding day.”
What if she’s listening to the radio?
“Well, that will totally solve my problem, won’t it? Because she’ll just drop out of the wedding herself. I’m a complete coward so I came on the radio with the hopes that she’ll listen. I’m afraid that she’ll sit on me if I ask her to not be in the wedding because she’s bigger than the rest of us”
I love how the DJ said…
“I totally disagree with you and I think this is horrible…but I’m taking calls just because I’m enjoying people whooping your butt on the air”
Seriously people…is this how shallow we are? I personally do not give a fuck how my friends look..if you’re one of my best friends, you are going to be in my damn wedding…even if you had a paint accident the day before and your face is completely blue.
Know any good BRIDEZILLA stories? What would you do if you were the friend? Guys…what about if this was YOUR fiance?
Bring on the discussions.
