Howard Stern gabs about Gabby Sidibe

The Oscars are over and the world is focused on new things. Some of the images from the show make it memorable. I can remember Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin wearing Snuggies, Kathryn Bigelow from the Hurt Locker standing up over and over and countless shots of Gabourey Sidibe from Precious smiling big.

The next day Howard Stern said, "that's the most enormous, fat black chick I’ve ever seen." Shame on you Howard Stern! Shame on you for saying what everybody was thinking after she engulfed our TV screens. Not her fault. The producer picked shots that were so tight, my HD was all face. Then they repeated the shot 10 times.

I personally did not know who she was, I didn't see the movie. I have to say, my immediate response was similar to Howard Stern's, but I didn't say anything. Like many people, I silently judged her for her size. Everyone has family members that struggle with their weight. There can be many reasons for their size and we should not judge. Howard's insights are correct, it would be better for her health if she was smaller. Duh.

So no, this Smackum! award doesn't go to Howard Stern, it goes to Mike Browne (me) for thinking what Howard said.
