“The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. And his pants. But you go for the stomach first, because that’s what classy women do.” – Bonnie, More To Love

A few excerpts:

“Grace Adler. Lorelei Gilmore. And, yes, Liz Lemon. You’ve seen them over and over, these slender women stuffing their faces for comic effect. Because they’re quirky! And down to earth! And lonely! But always skinny, so it’s okay!”

“Why are they all pretending to eat junk food constantly, yet maintaining Hollywood-tiny figures that clearly show the effects of restraint and exercise? …Maybe writers in Tinseltown find women eating normally to be such a novelty that it’s the stuff of high comedy.
