TLC’S “MY GIANT LIFE” – BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY
The network that brought you “My Husband’s Not Gay” (that would be TLC, of course) has a new show documenting the lives of four women over 6’6” tall called “My Giant Life” that premiered last night. Naturally the four women face unique every day challenges. Two of the women are 6’9” – one is a seventeen year old high school girl who plays basketball. In Texas, no less. Another, shown above, is a former wrestler and actress in Los Angeles who happens to be searching for her long lost father responsible for her height. We are frankly torn by unsettling feelings about exploitation and the strong desire to watch this show.
