Double Standard in the Kitchen

Real Cooks Have Curves

I despise reading commentary on women’s weight. People are now referring to curvy Nigela Lawson as a “porker.” Honestly, it’s bad enough that they hide her in that ridiculous jean jacket and black skirt in almost every episode. Sort of like how they used to stuff Carnie Wilson behind things like pianos and rocks in all of those Wilson Phillips music videos because she was heavier than her two skinny counterparts. Nigella’s husband apparently enjoys her body thoroughly so as long as she’s cool with curves and caramel croissants — who cares! If anything, I think she should show them off more and ditch those cardigans.
