From Half-Pint to 34EE
|Gilbert as 'Half-Pint' Laura Ingalls Wilder|
Everything about the 70s (when the show premiered), seemed so much more natural. Actresses had normal noses, crooked teeth, god-awful hair styles and just looked plain NORMAL.
I haven't posted to my blog lately, because I've been busy with SO much stuff, but after I read this article about Gilbert and her struggles and epiphany of what it means to be beautiful, I had to re-post.
Melissa goes into detail on her blog, in a post titled 'A Tale of Two Titties,' about how Hollywood and her douche-y ex-husband made her feel inadequate and insecure about her natural body. So much so, that she had a nose job and two breast implant surgeries. At one point her bosom was a 34EE.

Well she's back in the news now, and she's telling the world that what media, men and society do to women to make them feel adequate is plain wrong, and she's going back under the knife to get her natural self back by having her implants removed once and for all.
I love Melissa Gilbert, and her words and actions should mean a lot to a lot of women.
