DASCHA

One time for the Curvy Chicks! It has been one hell of a week in Chunky Chickz World but I’m glad we can end the week on a good note!

Dascha Polanco of #OITNB fame was honored with her very own day in New York City on Tuesday, August 8, 2017. Aug. 8th has officially been declared “Dascha Polanco Day.” On Tuesday Mayor Bill de Blasio honored the actress during Dominican Heritage Night, he presented her with a proclamation dedicated to her philanthropic impact on the Dominican community, her groundbreaking career as a Hollywood star, and for opening a theater program with The Dream Project in her native Dominican Republic.

Dascha took to Instagram to share her excitement, with a video clip from the ceremony and a caption that read.

“Today was an honor to have the Mayor of NYC & the First Lady celebrate my culture. It was a moment to embrace, they honored me today with a proclamation that today 8/8/2017 is DASCHA POLANCO DAY in the City of NY. I’m proud to be a Dominican raised in Brooklyn. #selflovery #ismellgood

BLOGGER LABELS RIHANNA “PLUS SIZE” IN BODY-SHAMING HEADLINE

RIHANNA

Singer, actress, clothing and shoe designer, perfumer and humanitarian Rihanna Fenty has now been labeled plus-size for whatever reason. The past few months it seems people have felt the need to body shame her. Most notably blogger Sandra Rose is the latest to stamp Rihanna with the label of plus-size.

During her latest promotional tour stop for her upcoming film “Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets” in Los Angeles the star wore a Giambatista Valli Couture gown.

Sandra Rose a blogger notorious for using salacious content/titles to drive traffic to her site, labeled the recap of the movie premiere  ‘Plus Size Singer Rihanna Stuns at ‘Valerian’ Premiere’.

The Rihanna Navy didn’t take to kindly to the post and dear old Sandra’s mentions were in shambles (po lil tink tink). to which she quickly followed up with another post to address the controversy.

In her post ‘fanMAIL: Rihanna is Not Plus-Size – You are BIGGER Than Her’ Sandra uses the bs “fashion industry” standard approach to justify her comments.

“If Rihanna is not plus-size, what is she? Let’s examine the fashion industry standard for plus-size models. According to PLUS Model magazine, plus size is defined as sizes 10-14; super-size is sizes 16 and up.

At 5-ft-9 and about 160 pounds, Rihanna fits the category of plus-size. She’s still a beautiful young lady, but as Sir Mix-a-Lot would say, “Red beans and rice didn’t miss her.”

A bit harsh and ignorant to say the least. As a plus size woman I’m sure we can agree that Rihanna is not Plus Size. She has however, gained a few pounds. So when did she become fat, or even over weight & if she was, what is the big damn deal???

Note to Dreamers: “I advise you to stop sharing your dreams with people who try to hold you back, even if they’re your parents [or friends]. Because, if you’re the kind of person who senses there’s something out there for you beyond whatever it is you’re expected to do – if you want to be EXTRA-ordinary- you will not get there by hanging around a bunch of people who tell you you’re not extraordinary. Instead, you will probably become as ordinary as they expect you to be.” – #KellyCutrone  (snapshot: #jillscott)
