Y’all, I used to love me some America’s Next Top Model. I’m not sure I can get down with the “Guys and Girls” cast this year, but I used to fall asleep to the sound of Tyra clucking like a chicken or talking in excess about her weave or telling the girls how much she loves herself. That is good T.V.
And as someone who has never been particularly skinny, it was incredibly refreshing to see Whitney Thompson, the blond, bubbly, plus-sized contestant from Season/Cycle 10, take home the top prize. Not that I ever thought I could be a model myself (I’m 5’3″. That dream got crushed when I stopped growing in 7th grade), but I’m so sick of seeing gorgeous clothes just hang on emaciated models like a limp, wet noodle.
I haven’t exactly kept up with her career since she won ANTM, but I recently discovered this super cute web series she hosts called “Whitney Thompson’s Curvy Kitchen.” First of all, she’s a dead ringer for Anna Nicole Smith. Second, I love that she’s maintained her full-figure. I imagine it’d be incredibly hard to not want to stop eating once you’re thrown into the fashion industry head-on. Third, she has some DELICIOUS looking recipes in her arsenal and I want to eat them all. But for now, can one of you guys whip up some of these Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls and let me know how it goes/send them to my apartment?
