One thing that wasn’t a challenge for Mikel was finding love. Happily married to 40-year-old Reggie Brooks, Ruffenelli doesn’t loathe her appearance the way many overweight women do. She tells Closer:
“I love my shape and I see no reason to diet because I don’t have health problems. I love Mexican food, English breakfasts and chips. My husband finds my shape Hot and we have an amazing time in bed – there’s no position we can’t do! He tells me I’m beautiful every day. Men don’t fancy skinny girls, they like an hourglass figure.When I walk down the street I can hear people using cameras and saying: ‘Look at her fat a**.’ Fortunately, I rise above it. I don’t want to get bigger, but I don’t want to lose my curves. I look great. I hope I inspire women to think, ‘She’s happy with her body and I can be too!’”
Not every woman who doesn’t fit the ridiculous molds that society creates is a sad case. It’s refreshing to see a woman as large as Ruffinelli fully accept herself for who she is and what she looks like. While I don’t condone an unhealthy lifestyle, I do condone self-confidence.
Ruffinelli didn’t end up like this just because. She places the blame on a combination of having children and eating a diet that reaches 3,000 calories a day. Well, that will do it folks.
