Dear People. . .

Dear People Magazine,

I recently happened upon your exclusive video, Kendra Wilkinson on Why She Can’t Really Have a Six-Pack Right Now, and I wanted to share a few thoughts.

Kendra’s six-pack, or lack thereof, isn’t news. Some may argue that all celebrity gossip lacks journalistic integrity, but this item is particularly insignificant.

More, Kendra shouldn’t have to defend the fact that her abs currently lack chiseling. No excuses are necessary for her body shape or size. And suggesting that she doesn’t have a six-pack “right now” implies a promise of abdominal contouring to come. People readers don’t need a guarantee.

Women’s bodies – their weight gains and losses, their cellulite, their “problem areas” – need not fill your pages. You could publish an entire year’s worth of magazines without a single feature, or even comment, on a celebrity body – and in doing so, you would contribute to a growing culture of positive body image promotion and self-acceptance. Imagine how newsworthy that would be!
