Quite frequently people say to me,

"You look like that actress.  Oh what's her name?  Kathy Bates...You look just like her!" 

I never quite know if that's a compliment or not.  When I think of her I usually think of her as Annie Wilkes in Misery.  She was neither attractive nor nice in that movie (although I thought she acted the part superbly)!

My pride just wishes I could have a doppelganger who is more-widely thought to be attractive and/or skinny.  I can never quite tell if people actually think I look like her or if they think I look like I'm the same size as her. (For the record I realize that she is probably a lot smaller than I am!). 

Here are a couple more pictures of her when she's all cleaned up. 

I guess it could be worse....people could be telling me I look like Rosie O'Donut or Roseanne Barr!!  (Don't get any ideas!!)

People used to tell me that I looked just like Roseanne. I had my hair longer than it is now. I really think just because we were both fat and had dark hair, really doesn't give people the right to tell you that you look like her. I think the hair style and color has a lot to do with it too. You are beautiful!!!!!! I guess the look has worked for those ladies.
