Should More Average-Sized Women Be on TV?

With the plethora of new shows like More to Love and Dance Your Ass Off showcasing much bigger women than we're used to seeing on the tube, is society suddenly more accepting of plus-sized ladies?

"Average women," model, fashion designer, and host of More to Love, Emme, corrects an interviewer. Just so you know, 56% percent of American women wear plus sizes, which start at size 14 or 16, depending on the brand.

"I think these welcomed shows are opening the aperture," the gorgeous full-figured woman says. "These are fun shows to watch, and they are really taking the perspective of the full-sized woman and bringing it into the type of package people can relate to."

At the heart of these refreshing shows is the message that we're all the same on the inside -- no matter the size of our jeans. We all want to feel good about ourselves, achieve great things, and find love in our lives -- so why should the skinny girls be the only ones to get the opportunity on TV?

Have you been watching More to Love, Dance, or the bigger-girl show Drop Dead Diva? Should there more shows like these on the tube?
