Bodacious Tocarra Jones, the full sized ex model who America came to love on Tyra Bank’s popular show, America’s Next Top Model, is back in the limelight.
Recently pictures or Ms. Jones have skirted the web showing her full-figured frame posed next to her new boo, Bryant McKinnie, offensive tackle for the Baltimore Ravens. Tocarra, who we last saw searching for love on her show, The Ultimate Merger, has come under scrutiny for not only her love life, but also her weight gain.
Since she first came on the scene in 2005 her weight was the subject of conversation. Everybody wanted to know how a plus size model would fare in the cutthroat modeling business. But after being constantly lambasted about her weight, she was sent packing.
When she emerged again, Tocarra had not only lost weight, but became the face for plus size models everywhere. The bright eyed, bubbly 31-year-old was back in the public eye on the reality show Celebrity Fit Club, showing off her new slimmed down physique in King magazine, and creating workout videos for the curvaceous “real size women.”
But after a hiatus from television, it appears she’s gained her weight back. And she stands in line with other celebrities who have struggled with weight gain off and on in the public eye.
Celebrities such as Oprah, Jennifer Hudson, and Carnie Wilson who have all been vocal about the struggle that comes along with maintaining their weight for all to see.
Is it fair? Why do we judge people when everyone knows how hard it is to maintain weight loss?
