Last season on Dancing With The Stars, Kirstie Alley showed that having curves was not going to deter her in the competition. Her goal was to use the strenuous dance regimen of the show to lose weight, and she did sport slimmer lines by the time she was eliminated, a few dances shy of the Mirror Ball Trophy.
Throughout the season, Alley made fun of her weight, but she never portrayed the extra pounds as a personal problem that inhibited her. She was funny, confident and amazingly nimble on the dance floor.
This season Ricki Lake and Nancy Grace are showing that plus size women can be comfortable with themselves and still accomplish great things. A full figure does not have to weigh down anyone's ambition and that is the most positive message that both of these contestants bring to the show.

Tune in to Dancing With The Stars and watch as the non-Hollywood bodies give the rest of the competition something to shoot for. Ricki Lake has been at the top of the leader board for the last two weeks. Showing that Dancing With The Stars is a plus for plus size women. If you got curves, girl, be proud and shake 'em.
