Howard Stern and his sidekick Robin Quivers says Gabourey Sidibe will never have a career because she is an enormous Black chick and she doesn’t look like anyone else in Hollywood
. Did he have to mention her race?
You know people talked about Whoopi Goldberg looks too but she is one of only ten people who has a Tony, Emmy, Oscar and a Grammy. They talked about Oprah Winfrey’s weight and isn’t she now a billionaire?
I’m not saying being obese is healthy but I am saying Stern and his sidekick were obnoxious in their commentary. You never hear anyone getting on overweight men in Hollywood, they only talk about women who might not fit their cookie-cutter mold.� SMH.
Gabourey has signed to appear on Showtime’s The Big C and has three movies in the works.
Sidebar: Here's her audition tape for the role of Precious.
For a girl with no formal training, that was stellar.
