I suppose the states and fed govt do have a vested interest in citizens being healthy. Obesity->increased risk of chronic illnesses->more healthcare utilization->more govt spending.

Simply put, the Krause fellow was being a dick. He's not a regular follower of the show and doesn't personally know this woman but feels compelled to lecture her on her weight. What a troll.
Sounds like what Michelle Obama did to Gabby Douglas on the Tonight Show.

The anchor needs to get a grip. He trolled her and she's crying bullying . Also it's sexual orientation not preference.

I agree, I didnt think it was that bad at all. And although it wasn't a very nice thing to say, can't say it wasn't true

How misleading. I came into the thread expecting to see someone lay the smack down on a little troll live on air, instead I watched a video of some woman being spewing politically correct life coach-esque rubbish. I'm surprised she didn't offer us all a group hug at the end of it.

In school we were told bullying was HARD
H - Hurtful
A - Aggressive (could have been a different A word )
R - Repetitive
D - Deliberate

Dunno what others think of that definition.
The repetitive bit is often missed by most people and I think repetition is quite relevant when it comes to bullying.

Whether you think it was bullying or not, the guy was being an asshole.

This isn't bullying, the guy's intentions were misguided but good.

A lot of women look like her, they brand themselves as "real" women and they though it was an attack on THEM.

That's not bullying. She has not even addressed the writer's concerns about presenting an unhealthy lifestyle to viewers. Neither did the writer use the word fat which she starts using all the time.

Bullying is the buzz word of the moment[/KyleRichards] Everyone uses it but nobody really know what it means.

The e-mail didn't seem mean-spirited at all to me. Inappropriate for sure, but the guy seemed concerned for her more than anything.

It can be considered as a cyber-bullying, no? Anyways, she somehow took a little too far with that message which was more like a sincere advice to me.
