Francesca loves Joy Nash!

And Joy has released the next “Fat Rant” video! Look, listen, and learn:

Ha! “No, but the night is young.” Ha!

Francesca loves the dresses which Joy is wearing at 0:42 and at 2:10.

But most of all, she loves the model of gracious and educational behavior at 2:45. As an Apple, Francesca is often asked by small children whether she “has a baby in her tummy,” and Francesca simply answers “no, sweetheart, I’m just fat.” Children normally will accept the truth without much comment if they can tell that that’s what it is. Grownups, on the other hand . . .


  1. “Live today like you wish you would have ten years from now.” Thank you, my lovely. You just made my day!

  3. Joy is a good friend of mine and a brilliant woman of size! She has been a tremendous support to me during my time of surgery and transition.

    We met right before “Fat Rant” came out–and even though she is famous (in some circles) she is modest, beautiful and smart.

    A serious catch. She is what all bigger ladies should aspire to be!

  5. I use the smiling, “No, I’m just fat!” all the time at work. All. The. Time.

    And I’m sure I’m not the only person who, when Joy said, “We deserve to be happy”, teared up.

  6. I heart Joy. And what a perfect name for such a lovely lady.
