Sarah Palin appeared as a guest host on The Today Show this morning, and prior to that, she sat down with Matt Lauer for a lengthy interview. The former Vice Presidential candidate chatted about a variety of topics, ranging from her disapproval of Obama to celebrities, including Jessica Simpson and Tina Fey, who has impersonated Palin numerous times over the years. Julianne Moore also portrays Palin in Game Change, and while Palin didn't watch the HBO film, she did note that "Tina Fey has been pretty clever."
The discussion then turned to Simpson's pregnancy weight gain, and Palin remarked that if she had been criticized for gaining so much weight while she was pregnant, she'd have punched the offender in the neck. She also added that Hollywood's depiction of skinny women creates an unrealistic body ideal. "You know, it would be nice if the marketplace would demand that some of these reality shows would start portraying some healthy, independent young women who are striving for a strong work ethic, doing the antithesis of so many things that we're seeing portrayed in reality shows today," she said.
