Katherine Schwarzenegger Tells Girls How to 'Rock What They've Got'

Friday, September 17, 2010

Katherine Schwarzenegger descends from Kennedy bloodlines and Hollywood royalty. She’s educated and beautiful and has been afforded more privileges than most of us could ever hope for. But she also wants the world to know she’s a real person - a person who, not that long ago, was a young girl facing the same pressures that young girls everywhere in America face.

She’s written a new book about her experiences growing up and learning to love herself. It’s called “Rock What You've Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who's Been There and Back.”

Guests:

Katherine Schwarzenegger

I listened with interest to the story about Katherine Swazenegger and her new book dealing with teen girls and the sensitive topic of their body image.

I was a little stunned to hear the host and hostess sign off with her declaring "She's like twelve feet tall!" the other saying "or eight feet!"

How ironic that they made fun of her body size when this is something she is trying to help young girls deal with. Perhaps it doesn't occur to people of average height that a tall person doesn't love being referred to in freakish terms. Such a comment can be very hurtful. I truly hope these two "get it" and make an apology to her, maybe even on air. Commenting on anyones body size or shape in anything but a positive way is always rude and has the potential to hurt someone's feelings.

Odd that the biggest event this week is the pope's visit to Britain, yet NYC hasn't mentioned it at all.
