The not-chunky Thunder Girl was interviewed on GMA…

I think I mention this every chance I get, but one benefit of being an obscure local social blogger is that I get to sleep-in each day. That means I don't have to suffer through terrible morning shows like Good Morning America and watch silly TV interviews with pretty blonde girls that were called chunky.
Yes, that happened. Three weeks after having her weight singled out by a Houston sports blogger, Thunder Girl Kelsey Williams set down with ABC's Bianna Goldodryga and shared the horrible tale of what it's like to be a pretty blonde girl and have your weight randomly questioned by a Houston sports blogger.
Here's the interview:
Dear God, could they be more melodramatic? If you didn't know better, you'd think the interview was an Onion video sketch. How else could you explain this exchange?
Reporter: Describe that moment when you had to put that uniform back on.
Kelsey: My first game back, it was -- I was really scared. I had a feeling that a lot of people would be looking for me just because I'm me now instead of a Thunder Girl and so I was really nervous and I had a huge knot in my stomach right up until the game started but once I ran out on to the court and the game started, it just -- it felt like normal.
I know we helped stir the pot by outing the alleged blogger, but I can't believe how much national attention this story has received. She's a pretty cheerleader that prances around in skimpy clothes and dances out of step with other girls in skimpy clothes. She's not Michael Jordan returning to the Bulls in 1995. I think she'll be fine. At last check, she's still pretty, still in shape, and will still continue to get to cut to the front of the line when she goes out to a club.
Anyway, this isn't the last time we'll see Kelsey on the national stage. She's also going to appear on the TLC reality show "Randy to the Rescue." I guess it's a show where a little person named Randy rescues disaster weddings or something. I'm honestly not sure. Since I'm not that girl on Facebook with self-esteem issues, I've never watched it.
Here's more info about it:
In each episode of RANDY TO THE RESCUE, bridal guru Randy Fenoli makes brides’ fantasies come true as he goes off the runway and behind the wheel of a big rig – to bring his favorite gowns, his unsurpassed dress knowledge, and his signature “head-to-hem” styling approach to brides around the country. As Randy visits different cities, he creates the ultimate trunk shows and dishes out his top tips on bridal style, do’s and don’ts, and the hottest trends for the season. From dresses and accessories to makeup and hair, he offers a complete blueprint from head-to-hem for lucky brides-to-be so they can replicate the exact look on their big day.
Season Two features Oklahoma City Thunder cheerleader Kelsey Williams, who has recently been in the news due to criticism over her weight. Randy tries to help Kelsey find a wedding dress that will work for her carnival-themed reception, while incorporating her favorite “color” leopard.
Little word of advice to any snarky bloggers out there. Don't run a poll on your website asking if Kelsey is too chunky to be on a bridal reality show. She's not, and you'll probably lose your job. You can maybe post one about her bridesmaids, though. Everyone judges the bridesmaids.
