*In a move that defies all the negative cliches we have heard about obesity, one California woman has decided to bare her all, and prove you can’t believe everything you hear. And the fact that she chose the famous Hollywood Blvd. as her starting point says a lot!
I guess you can call Amani Terrell the biggest new star on Hollywood Blvd. Weighing 260-lbs., she struts her stuff down Hollywood Blvd. wearing only two things.
A bikini and a smile.
And though you can rightfully assume some folks are throwin’ shade, others give her a high-five for her courage.
“You cannot seek validation from other people. The world is very cruel,” she told KTTV. “You must seek validation within yourself and be kind to yourself.”
Terrell admits that she knows she has to lose weight, but says she won’t remain locked-in to that negative mindset that big women are unhappy.
“There’s a misconception that big women have low self-esteem,” she told the local Fox affiliate. “I don’t have low self-esteem.”
“That’s sexy right there,” one fan told the news station. “That’s a big mama with a lot of confidence.”
And the scantily clad Terrell doesn’t plan to stop her walks down the boulevard anytime soon.
