Courtney Thorne-Smith for the Atkins Diet

When has this skinny bitch EVER had to stuggle with her weight?

by Anonymousreply 5511/08/2014

50 lbs in 3 months sounds like loose skin city.

struggle not stuggle

I thought she went public years ago with an eating disorder.

Courtney was part of the infamous ALLY MCBEAL set in the 90s: almost every woman in the cast was anorexic or bulimic: Calista, Portia, probably Lucy and Jane. I'm convinced the body issues were part of what made poor full-figured Lisa Nicole Carson insane.

She suffered from an eating disorder, so I'm not sure if being the spokesperson for a diet plan is such a great idea.

Courtney was chunky by Hollywood standards earlier in her career. She was also self conscious about her large chest. Watch the first few seasons of Melrose Place. She felt large in comparison to Heather Locklear. She lost some weight before Ally, and then more as the show progressed.

I thought she was pretty chunky on Melrose Place.

by Anonymousreply 803/11/2012

She claimed that she had decided to leave Ally McBeal and join the cast of that God-awful Jim Belushi sitcom because it would free her from the pressure of staying thin. The next time I saw her, she was on the TV commercial for Atkins looking like a starving African orphan..

Are you kidding? She was thin on Melrose Place. She had always been thin and has admitted to having had an eating disorders.

Lisa Nicole Carson was obese. Jane Krakowski was normal weight to Hollywood chunky.

She was thick and busty in "Summer School"

Courtney has been shilling for Atkins for years.

by Anonymousreply 1303/11/2012

Busty, yes. Thick, no R12.

Didn't CTS take a year or two off between Ally and the godawful Jim Belushi show.

R10, she was under pressure to lose weight from the MP producers. She was much heavier than Heather and most of that cast.

by Anonymousreply 1403/11/2012

That's a perfectly normal body @R12, in my humble opinion.

[quote]Lisa Nicole Carson was obese.

Find me her photo from that time where she looks obese.

by Anonymousreply 1503/11/2012

In the ad, they draped a slender lock of long blonde hair across her collarbone so it would not appear jutting.

by Anonymousreply 1603/11/2012

Comapared to her weight in that Atkins commercial, R14, she was thick.

by Anonymousreply 1703/11/2012

Normal indeed, R15.

R15 Lisa

R17, she's too thin now, but in Summer School she was at a healthy weight. I think she gained a bit between SS and MP.

by Anonymousreply 2003/11/2012

I saw the ad and thought the same.

by Anonymousreply 2103/11/2012

She looks very unwell in the Atkins commercial. She also looka lika man!!!

by Anonymousreply 2203/11/2012

R19 Big tits don't equal obesity. No wonder these actresses strive to be too thin to be healthy. Why are you studying Courtney's weight like a hawk?

by Anonymousreply 2303/11/2012

Lisa was amazing on Ally and should have been a huge star. Was it drugs that contributed to her breakdown?

by Anonymousreply 2403/11/2012

Gabourey Sidibe is obese. Lisa Nicole Carson is not.

by Anonymousreply 2503/11/2012

That is not obese, R19.

by Anonymousreply 2603/11/2012

Lisa was obese, not as much as Gabourey Sidibe, but she was obese. Courtney was just right on MP.

by Anonymousreply 2703/11/2012

In that pic at r12, she has the kind of body that only a gay man could find flaws in. To me, she had a perfect shape. I think rail thin women are unattractive.

Everytime I read her name, I think of this:

by Anonymousreply 2903/11/2012

I always confuse her with Jane Krakowski.

by Anonymousreply 3003/11/2012

I agree, r28. She looks perfect and healthy, but that's exactly what "thick" means, at least when used correctly (according to Urban Dictionary).

by Anonymousreply 3103/11/2012

Courtney also got a dreadful "mom" haircut during the first season of Ally.

My favorite part of MP was Courtney playing Alison drunk.

by Anonymousreply 3203/11/2012

I always liked to stand next to that fat girl.

by Anonymousreply 3303/11/2012

What some of you consider obese and thick is well within the range of normal for women's body types. This may come as a shock to some of you, but many women have tits and hips without being anywhere near "obese."

by Anonymousreply 3403/11/2012

Lisa was obese or close to it. She was much bigger than Jane, who had a normal womanly figure.

by Anonymousreply 3503/11/2012

Lisa had a HUGE ass!

by Anonymousreply 3603/12/2012

You people saying that Lisa is/was obese are insane. She is gorgeous,curvy, and thinner than 90 percent of American women (in person).

by Anonymousreply 3703/12/2012

There is no way that she is doing the actual Atkins diet. A low fat version perhaps. Atkins dieters can get to an average weight on the diet, but it isn't really possible to get as thin as she is without reducing fat and watching total caloric intake.

I even liked Courtney in "According to Jim."

She's just pretty and likeable!

Just the opposite, babe.

Thorne-Smith had one asset that made her famous - her chest. That's it. Her crooked mouth, her high shoulders, etc she is hardly a sex symbol. I could see why she was uncomfortable on a set with Heather Locklear - a total hottie in her day, but also a whore.

by Anonymousreply 4511/18/2012

R45 - wasn't just her chest. Courtney also has a gorgeous, radiant smile, and a nice head of hair.

Ironically, she was self conscious of her large chest.

She has not done anything other than the recurring role on 2.5 Men in a long time.

She was Hollywood chubby on MP.

Gabourey Sidibe needs Atkins. It would save her life.

by Anonymousreply 5311/08/2014

She's pretty but her face is so square, she looks like a Kennedy. I've never found that to be a desirable trait on a woman.

by Anonymousreply 5411/08/2014

She has a really nice slightly raspy voice.
