Kathie Lee & Hoda: Plus-Sized Swimsuit Calendar
Most everyone has heard about the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition that features the typical, thin models wearing skimpy bathing suits posing for the camera. Well, a collaboration between a swimsuit company called Swimsuits for All and fashion blogger Gabi Gregg created a different version of the famous calendar.
Plus-sized models wanted to make their own calendar, and they called it “Sexy At Every Curve.” They posed the same way as the Sports Illustrated models but only did a few months because they first wanted to see how interested people would be before making the full calendar.
Well guess what! People were so into it that they are now doing the whole calendar that you can see for free online.

She meant that she felt violated but it was “an unfortunate use of words.” She has yet to apologize, even after Kathie Lee and Hoda reached out to her.
Kathie Lee and Hoda ran a message across the bottom of the screen that said, “Kathie Lee would like to apologize for what she said, what she is currently saying, and what she is about to say.” Kathie Lee said the people who know you know how you are and know you’re not trying to hurt anyone, you’re not trying to be damaging to anyone.
