Washington: It seems Bristol Palin’s weight gain during ‘Dancing With the Stars’ has become talk of the town.
After it was revealed that Palin made it through to the finals of
dance show late last year, shock jock radio host Howard Stern went on quite the rampage, announcing that she “is the first contestant in the history of the hit ABC show to get fatter as the show goes on,” and that she “must be eating everything in sight."
Comedienne Kathy Griffin also jumped on the Palin “fat” attack while hosting VH1’s “Salute to the Troops” last month, mocking the 20-year-old for gaining “30 pounds per week” during the show and referring to her as he obese “white Precious.”
However, Palin’s dancing competitor, Brandy Norwood, slammed these ‘fat’ jokes.
“It offends me (when I hear people talking about Bristol’s weight like that.) and sometimes the media can be a little harsh on celebrities and forget that they’re people just like everyone else,” Fox News quoted Norwood as saying while promoting the second season of her VH1 reality show “Brandy and Ray J: Family Business.”
“She shouldn’t be treated unfairly. I’m ‘Team Bristol.’ You won’t ever catch me saying anything negative about Bristol,” she added.
