Shes on 3 right now. Looks like she would snap if you touched her.

What's way too thin?

Ok, I haven't seen any recent pictures of her, but does she seem ill?

She is thin but she seems healthy and energetic enough.

Norah Sun 28-May-06 21:21:21

I'm watching that too - and am also thinking how lovely she is ! Have to say that she looks thin but healthy to me ! She doesn't have that emaciated look iykwim ?

Has she had elocution lessons ?

SaintGeorge Sun 28-May-06 21:24:56

Yeah, what is too thin?

Just so I know if I should defensive and bitter about comments on here.

TambaTheDragonSlayer Sun 28-May-06 21:26:13

Maybe thats just the weight shes supposed to be?

Mercy Sun 28-May-06 21:27:57

How tall is she, does anyone know?
Size 4 is very tiny

so is she going to keep having babies til she has a girl to hand the dresses to?

Norah Sun 28-May-06 21:29:57

Why not ? she's young, has plenty of money and plenty of time on her hands ? Why not ?

expatinscotland Sun 28-May-06 21:52:25

IIRC, she once mentioned she wanted 4.

i think she looks lovely if a little thin, my mum saw her 3 years ago in manchester and says that she is really petite and beautiful so maybe she,s meant to be that weight.

I've seen her and she's scarily tiny. Her head is way out of proportion to the rest of her - off camera she looks like a lollipop.

Caligula Sun 28-May-06 22:56:24

I saw a bit of that, was very surprised by how lovely she looked. Yes thin, but not painfully so. She really ought to stop pouting though, it's that mouth action which makes her look less pretty than she actually is. For some reason, it also looks a bit brainless. I can't think why, but it's unfortunate.

Caligula Sun 28-May-06 22:56:42

LOL at lollipop!

According to recently-evicted Bonnie, most of the women in the Big Bro House are size 4-6 (she herself being 10?). Isn't VB one of the size 0 celebs?

Caligula Sun 28-May-06 23:06:48

But tbh this size thing is something I'm a bit sceptical about. Twenty years ago I was a size 8, and most of my clothes were too big for me (I was tiny) but I wasn't underweight or even particularly thin - just normally slim). I am now size 8 again, not because I am not at least 6 inches fatter all over, but because they have changed all the sizes and made them bigger. At the same time, they have actually started catering for women who are smaller than what used to be the smallest size, so they've invented what sounds like ludicrously small sizes. But when you realise that size 8 is actually nearer to what a 12 or 14 was twenty years ago, size 4 doesn't sound quite as small, does it? - It's just the equivalent of slightly smaller than size 8 used to be.

SueW Sun 28-May-06 23:37:32

I've just looked at Boden's size charts and in my late teens I would have been a size 8 working on those.

I had a 24-25in waist but in Miss Selfridge back then I used to be a huge 12-14 which made me feel really fat (and I was slim, albeit bottom heavy mostly being a 1980s 'size 12' top and 'size 14' bottom then). I weighed less than 9stone and was/am 5' 8"-9".

Nuts!

VB is about the same height as me ( and I'm 5 ft 3 )or at least she was about 8 years ago when she was on a flight I was a hostie on.
She may well have had a height implant since then, who knows?

Northerner Mon 29-May-06 17:35:09

I think her figure is fab and she looks lovely. She still has bad skin and wears tons of make up though.

No way is Bonnia from BB a size 10 though. 12/14 I'd say.

FrannyandZooey Mon 29-May-06 17:42:49

I agree Caligula, I am a size 8 in some lines now but I got some old trousers out the other day (from when skinny jeans were in last time round ) and I couldn't get into the size 10s that I used to fit into. I am larger now than I was then, but take a smaller size because they have changed all the measurements.

WelshBoris Mon 29-May-06 17:47:15

Personally I think she is fab, and her weight doesnt bother me in the slightest


Good for her

flutterbee Mon 29-May-06 17:48:53

I saw that programme and thought she came across brilliantly, I thought she was funny, took the mickey out of herself and seamed at total ease with life. Have to say I didn't even notice what kind of weight she was so it couldn't have been that bad.
