TheSkinnyWebsite.com has been around on and off since November 2005. I (webmistress Rian) took the site down for a few months earlier this year (2012) because I felt as though I was exploiting celebrities by pointing out their weight gain and loss, plus allowing excessively rude comments towards them and others. But after a bit of soul-searching, I decided there is nothing wrong with looking at celebrities and posting pictures of the skinny/thin ones, as well as the more curvy and/or healthy ones. We are all beautiful, and celebrities are [sometimes] even more so. They are in the public eye, so they likely enjoy the attention, so long as it isn’t negative.
I have decided to no longer mention when a celebrity has gained weight, however, because that can be deemed as being mean/cruel. So going forward, I will mostly just post pictures with occasional comments here and there. I have reopened the comments section but have made it clear (I hope) that this isn’t a site for snarkiness, cruelty or fighting. There are enough sites like that out there where people say some of the most awful things about celebrities. It’s pretty amazing that people forget they are human beings like the rest of us.
As for me, Rian, I’m a bit obsessed with dieting, food and health, but of course that is probably obvious, given the website’s subject matter. The funniest thing is that I never had a weight problem until I started this website. I was never overweight (and in fact, skinny/thin most of my life) until about a year after starting this website. Karma? Probably.
I have a lot of other interests – you can read my personal blog at rianmontgomery.com, and check out all the metaphysical and spiritual stuff I’ve learned over the past year and a half over at spiritualgal.com. I’m trying to work on balancing the spiritual with the physical with the superficial. Right now it seems to be working well. Earlier this year, it was not.
Anyway, enough about me. There is a lot more history to this website, but that is all I have for now. I will probably update this page in the near future. Thanks for reading!
