Blind Item #8

The producers of this hit network comedy are going to reduce the role of one of the stars of the show down to just a handful of episodes or release her from her contract because she keeps gaining weight. They are going to call it creative differences.

But they won't do that when an actress keeps LOSING weight. Assholes.

Ariel Winter on Modern Family

Ariel Winter.

amh.producer said...

It would be easy to do with CeCe since Schmidt cheated on her and finally found out. She could need to take time off to find herself. Sad though, could be the right answer.

amh.producer said...

I hope it's not Ariel Winter. She's a KID.

Violet said...

I hate that I even think this but the middle girl from modern family?

Jennabean said...

I thought the same thing when I saw the new episodes then felt like shit because does anyone else remember one of the things they were sayin about her monster was that she wouldn't let her eat?? I hope it's not her she's such a pretty young girl

Michael H said...

Um, have you guys noticed WHERE Ariel Winter has been gaining weight? I kinda doubt it's her.

Melissa McCarthy

@kassandra - first one that came to my mind but would it really be bad if smart daughter was a little chunky- she plays a great character on the show that would be missed if she didn't play off dumb/pretty sister.

texas rose said...

+1 - she is only there for hotness/sex factor so if she gets chunky hard to pull off model character and sexual interest.

Renoblondee said...

Hannah Simone is still as slender as ever. Not her.

tulsa70s said...

The not-Kaley and not-Mayim one from Big Bang. They constantly make weight jokes on that show.

JSierra said...

Ariel has gained it everywhere. It sounds horrible to be talking about a young girls weight, but her gain was so huge and drastic this season that my usually oblivious dad and brother made several comments on it. Tothem it is more of something looks wrong than damn she got bigger. Idk if that makes sense...

I really hope this isn't Ariel Winter. I do wonder how they will continue to write her character since she is beginning to look more "Sofia-esque" (for lack of a better term). It seems like they are going out of the way to make her look more mousy, hence appearing "chunky".

Staple611 said...

I don't think it's AW, only because the producers wouldn't claim to have "creative differences" with a teenager, right?

plokzy said...

Ikr! Lol

texas rose said...

V- you really think she is getting sexier I think just the opposite and that seems to be her role- the unsexy one. Don't care how big her tits get she will not be hot(at least not for some time.)

V said...

Texas Rose, this is what I mean. In real life she is very cute and tends to (tastefully) show off her figure - her Emmy look for example. The show makes her look dowdy and because she does have a good-sized rack, she ends up looking bigger than she is (similar to what happens to Christina Hendricks).

Sherry said...

True V. I noticed she has "blossomed" and the little boy doesn't even look like himself anymore since he hit puberty. Sad if they are trying to shame her. She's a great character and isn't heavy by any stretch.

V said...

Sherry, I have a feeling it is another show. I can't imagine the producers of MF doing that to a teenager. The only other network comedy I watch is Parks & Rec and I can't see Amy P allowing that to happen.

texas rose said...

V- Sorry I misunderstood your previous comment- I just don't think they have to work too hard to make her look dowdy- she only looks ok when made up for Emmy's ect imho.

V said...

Really Texas Rose? she always seems to look like a fairly attractive teenage girl to me...we can agree to disagree ;)

Murphy said...

The girl who plays Bernadette on BBT isn't fat, she just has huge fake +2's. The sweaters that her character wears just aren't flattering, guess her original intentions were to land the role of a hot girl, not a nerd.

But who cares, its a well paying regular gig now!

PotPourri said...

A weight gain for Ariel Winter would play in just fine for her. The chunky nerd who keeps her face buried in a book.

Nobody on BBT that's for sure. They are all rocking their bods.

texas rose said...

V - Why don't you like the New Girl guess?

V said...

@texas rose, I mentioned in my reply to Sherry, the only other network comedy I watch is parks and rec (oh, and community which is not currently on). So I have nothing.

Iceberg said...

Fuck those fucking fuckers.

This is Hannah Simone two weeks ago on Conan. She might possible have gained two pounds? I don't know if that's enough to get someone booted off a show - could be the way these assholes treat women.

texas rose said...

V- I can't keep my Demi's straight let alone be expected to finish reading and comprehending a two sentence comment:) Which I'm sure you have noticed in the past:) We can agree to disagree on Ariel's looks.

V said...

Haha Texas Rose. I was trying to figure out who Demi was. I have issues too ;)

Renoblondee said...

@Iceberg
Wathced that clip. She is adorable in real life! Very funny.
Anyway, still don't think it's her. She's still too trim.

JoElla said...

I hope this is revealed so we can all not watch.

Sugar said...

Is Glee considered a comedy? I stopped watching but maybe one of those actors is gaining weight?

tara17 said...

I was thinking Amber Tamblyn on Two and a Half Men. She's slightly chubby for Hollywood, and if she's gaining more weight...

NaughtyNurse said...

Please reveal this.

Mama Bear said...

Melissa Rauch aka Bernadette

Jessie said...

I don't think it's Ariel Winter. She's definitely looking schlubby on the show but I think she's just getting super curvy and they're dressing it down.

Candyzeit said...

Kat Dennings?, although I don't know if 2 broke girls would work good as 1 broke girl.

Rach Around said...

Fuck that!

Tina Mallette said...

Why would you fire a teenager for gaining weight, if this is a situation comedy, who cares, it is not a bloody beauty pageant and then Vergara the Colombia bombshell and the real skinny chick just have less competition.....teenagers esp pubescent females can have issues with weight, write it into the script, you got the fat gay guy character..... or is there a quota on overweight people

Shit You Can't Buy said...

@Candyzeit: Kat actually lost a ton of weight since the show started. And I hate it :( Her boobies disappear more and more and her head suddenly looks huge. She is almost as skinny as the girl who plays Caroline.

Poison Ivy said...

Please reveal this so this show can be boycotted. This is outrageous - no one fired any of those "New 90210" girls when they all looked like concentration camp refugees.

This is an outrage. REVEAL!!

Della said...

Ariel has gained weight but she is far from fat. She needs to learn how to dress her body type. She is always wearing WAY too short shorts in the Papp shots. It makes her look trashy.

Karen said...

Ariel Winter is double her size this season on Modern Family and I'm sure the producers arent that crazy about all the courtroom drama from her family issues. Its negative publicity that they dont want to be associated with. I highly doubt she would get work after Modern Family.

Kate and Gemma said...

I'm ashamed to say that Ariel was the first person to come to mind. I don't know that the writers could eliminate her character altogether, but I suppose they could send her off to college early. Hopefully I'm wrong, and this isn't anyone from MF.

car54 said...

I can't see how it would matter to Ariel's character on the show--if anything it adds to her little nerd girl character.

The little guy who plays Manny--Gloria's kid has been chunky from day 1--he was cast that way--so it would be unfair to treat her differently.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

The producers would look like TOTAL SCHMUCKS for firing a 15-year-old over "creative differences." I refuse to believe it's her.

Essie said...

This is not Ariel Winter. If she is fired, how could they call it "creative differences" when she is only 15? Also, the cast and everyone else stood solidly by her during her troubles with her mother. Why would the producers take this child through another traumatic situation by firing her? No one is that cold, especially when the show is still going strong.

0_0 said...

None of these guesses make any sense.

I going with BS blind.

@Murphy - Melissa (Bernadette from BBT) does not have fake +2's at all. She's looked like that since puberty...I've known her since she was a child, and nothing fake about her body.

Veruca said...

I agree with a lot of these comments -- Melissa (Bernadette from BBT) is adorable and tiny (her waspy waist is always emphasized in those floral dresses).

Ariel Winter, while she may be getting more of a grown-up body, is, as noted here, only 15 and "creative differences" wouldn't be their reasoning.

I feel like the real subject of this blind hasn't been named yet.

I absolutely do not agree about Hannah Simone, since she is so slender, BUT she was not on this week's episode at all.

I predicted that Kat Dennings was going to totally thin out (even though I loved that she was so sexy and real) and she is crazy skinny now.

Was this ever revealed?
