Michaela Pereira from the CNN New Day early show

This poor woman is a mess! The too tight dresses, the wild hair in her face and bouncing all over the place like a giant drag queen wig... She tries to cross her legs when the cameras come in but they're tree trunks, and her dresses so tight, so short, it looking like they're about to blow apart like to giant hams loaded with TNT.

I like her, but can't a friend tell her that her clothes are too tight?

I did some charity work with her when she was in LA. OMG she's unbelievably nice. I'm not saying one bad word against her. As sweet as can be, she is.

She is really the only good new hire CNN has made in the Zucker era.

She reminds me of old school Oprah a little with the big hair. I like it.

She was on KTLA morning news show, here in LA, for years , and I found she was the only real person behind a desk full of idiots, and anorexic, bleached blonde ninnys.

Those skin tight wrap dresses just aren't her friend.

I liked her when she anchored the local morning news show here in L.A. Now that she's gone, the morning show is a fucking mess. I hate everyone on it and I can't stand to watch it. The leftover anchors/sports /weather/entertainment people are self-involved clowns or worse completely bland.

It's funny how big a difference one person can make.

For the record, I would've been more impressed if she were co-anchor with Chris Cuomo, rather than a third wheel. It was lazy and disappointing for CNN to go with Kate Bolduan and relegate Michaela to the diversity hire role.

I'm we with R1. I met her in L.A and she's a sweetheart. She has gained weight from when she first came to KTLA but she's fantastic at her job and still beautiful.

It seemed to occur after the eating.

by Anonymousreply 2409/21/2013

Given the nature of her weight gain and where it's located on her body, I'm guessing that some sort of hormonal issues are wreaking havoc with her metabolism.

This woman is STILL wearing those too, TOO tight wrap dresses.

Is this a Canadian thing? She's also going on and on about "Team Canada" at the Olympics, which I totally get if she's Canadian, but very strange to keep rooting for competition when you're anchoring an American show. I can't imagine an American journalist doing that on Canadian television.

by Anonymousreply 3402/11/2014

She didn't used to be fat.

by Anonymousreply 3502/11/2014

She's huge now R35. Her legs are the size of small trees and she keeps them so awkwardly crossed on CNN that I'm in fear they're going to snap open one day, flinging the set desk into a crowd of cameramen, decapitating them instantly.

Fine by me that she's "full figured", but can't she get a clue about the uber tight clothing and hemlines up to her cooze?

It's not clear what size she was in the clip from R35.

CNN has gone to the dogs.

by Anonymousreply 4103/29/2014

Nearly eight years after leaving CNN, the network that made her famous, Ms. Battista has resurfaced in the news game as an anchor for Onion News Network, the online video arm of The Onion, the satirical newspaper.

The topics Ms. Battista has tackled in her Onion spots are Despondex, a drug for those who are too happy — “a huge step forward in the battle against exuberance,” she deadpans into the camera; Franz Kafka International Airport ranking last in customer satisfaction (the average delay is 31 hours longer than the next worse airport); and the discovery of the fossilized remains of the sexually predatory dinosaur (“a pervatasaurus”).

“Odd jobs always seem to find me,” Ms. Battista said in a telephone interview from Atlanta, where she lives and where she hosted “Talk Back Live,” the CNN viewer-participation program.

r42 thank you.

There's nothing wrong with being heavy except that it's not healthy. But if a person is heavy & in the public eye, clothing appropriate to body size should be worn. She makes enough money to have her clothes custom made. She's beautiful & smart, but those dresses she wears are way too tight. Someone please help her with her wardrobe & hair. We'll all breathe a lot easier.

by Anonymousreply 4406/17/2014

I just recently started watching CNN in the mornings. I think Michaela is very beautiful, not too mention intelligent ! She dresses appropriately. No she isnt a size 2, and those who cut her up because of that need to take a look in their own mirror....which I'm sure is a nasty sight!

She probably eats too many bagels in the green room before the show. Seems like a sweet woman.

It's funny in promotion pics for CNN they have her posing with her co host's and she is on the end only showing half her body because she is so huge. What is worse is the other black women on CNN are wearing really bad, tranny looking wigs. What is up with that?

by Anonymousreply 5805/29/2015

Why do all the women except the huge black woman (she would if she could pull it off) on CNN dress like prostitutes you would see in a swank hotel bar in Budapest around 11:30 at night? CNN has turned news into a joke. It's starting to look more and more like a porn set. Before you know it we will tune in and see Wolf Blitzer plowing Don Lemon up the crapper. I do however like Anthony Bourdain and Mike Rowe.

Sure, she could do with a stylist, but she doesn't offend me nearly as much as Robin Meade on HLN, who's never worn an outfit that didn't come from the floor under the clearance rack at Ross Dress for Less.

I flip over to HLN every morning to see what she's wearing. It's good to get the cuntery out of my system first thing in the morning.....but not today, apparently.

by Anonymousreply 6305/30/2015

She's pretty. I understand how some skinny white queens would think her clothes are too tight, because in general such body types are not celebrated in their community. Fortunately CNN is not solely focused on appeasing that demographic.

by Anonymousreply 6405/30/2015

I have no problem with her hair but her weight!!?? I have a huge problem with that. ....I mean, she is so fat. With all that money she's making she can't carry her trunk self to a gym, pay for a trainer & even pay for weight watchers for Christ's sake. She makes 6 figures. & her hugging wrap dresses about her knees just make her look even more obese. Stop being lazy and unfazed about your weight Michaela. You r on the news! Go and wok out.

by Anonymousreply 6506/08/2015

I think she looks fine, is attractive most days and that her clothes are NOT a disaster. And I tend to make fun of fat people.

I am not a prude, but I'm glad to be seeing a trend toward dialing back on the 'glitz' of the clothes that on-camera people -- women, in particular -- are wearing. I live in Dallas and the women on the local stations here were wearing the worst, trashiest, flashiest stuff a couple years ago. They all looked like they were out partying the night before.

As for Michaela: I like her as she is. We need a mix of people and body types and racial characteristics on television. Leave her alone.

by Anonymousreply 6606/08/2015

I think she's the sexiest woman on that network. I love her body. My God, she's shapely!

She's a great beauty.

She's cute, very pretty. I like the semi chubby girl-all dressed up look.

by Anonymousreply 6806/08/2015

Okay, so I'm kinda glad there's a thread for Michaela. For the record, I think she's a talented anchor, has an appealing on air persona and manages to balance the lighter "lifestyle" and hard news brands of most morning shows. I also have ZERO problem with seeing fat women (or men) on tv. Longtime Candy Crowley fan here.

But there is something really ODD about Michaela's appearance. It's not that she's fat. It's not that her styling or makeup are off. It's that - stay with me here - she looks like a thin woman wearing a fat suit. She doesn't look... well... real. Remember when talk shows, like Tyra Banks, were doing those ridiculous undercover "this is what it's like to be fat" videos with women who were OBVIOUSLY in fat suits? That's what she looks like. As though she's been sitting in the makeup chair for three hours every day just to fatten up. Is anyone else seeing this or is it just me?

by Anonymousreply 6902/23/2016

You'll be shocked at the number of straight men who continuously jerk off to her type. I'm sure one of them is my skinny cousin who always goes for big boobs, curves and ass. Only white guys think Kate Moss types are hot.

by Anonymousreply 7707/09/2016

I think you're all naive. I believe CNN may have been getting much unfavorable feedback from viewers but were afraid to confront her for fear of legal retribution. I.e. - "It doesn't matter that I'm fat. I'm a journalist! Why are you fat shaming me, a woman, and not overweight male hosts? Wouldn't this also explain why she is bouncing, pun not necessarily intended, from CNN to KTLA to HLN?

by Anonymousreply 7807/09/2016

R69, I agree with you, and get your point about the odd look of her weight, because I have the same look and yes, it IS a result of hormonal issues (IR, PCOS, Hashimoto's thyroiditis). There IS a difference in appearance between someone who is genetically pre-programed to be fat and someone who gains big weight because of meds/serious hormonal issues.

I like Michaela, and think she is gorgeous.
