Although the new series, Dream, is still in development (ie the show has not yet been ordered), we're overjoyed at the thought of Glee alum Amber Riley leading a comedy series on the peacock.
According to TVLine, "The single-camera project follows a former teen mom, Dream Morgan (played by Riley), who turns her life upside down to pursue her dream of becoming a singer after her son graduates from college. Lisa Muse Bryant (black-ish) will pen the script and serve as showrunner, in addition to exec-producing alongside Neil Meron (The Wiz Live!, Smash)."
Just in time for Halloween a group of Plus models and digital influencers imagined what it would look like to be Disney princesses... The project was an incredible success and included a slew of famous faces, including Hunter and Michaela McGrady, Glitters and Lazers (Anna O'Brian), and more!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, If The Shoe Fits "is the launch title for the new Meant to Be banner, intended to feature updated and contemporary takes on classic Disney princesses, and also the first Disney intellectual property to be developed as an adult publishing project."
From #1 New York Times best-selling author Julie Murphy [Dumplin’, as well as Faith: Taking Flight, the prose adaptation of Valiant Entertainment’s popular comic book character] comes the first in a brand-new adult series inspired by the classic fairy tale stories we all know and love, perfect for adult readers who crave contemporary, escapist rom-coms.
“After having just graduated with a degree in shoe design, and trying to get her feet on the ground, Cindy is working for her stepmother, who happens to be the executive producer of America’s favorite reality show, Before Midnight. When a spot on the show needs filling ASAP, Cindy volunteers, hoping it might help jump-start her fashion career, or at least give her something to do while her peers land jobs in the world of high fashion.
“Turns out being the only plus size woman on a reality dating competition makes a splash, and soon Cindy becomes a body positivity icon for women everywhere. What she doesn't expect? That she may just find inspiration — and love — in the process. Ultimately, Cindy learns that if the shoe doesn't fit, maybe it's time to design your own.”
If The Shoe Fits will be released Aug. 3, 2021.
Rihanna's lingerie line has been known for being size inclusive since it's initial launch in May 2018. Her second fashion show - which was produced during COVID - just hit Amazon Prime Video on Friday is already setting the internet ablaze.
Not only was icon Lizzo included in the show - along with Willow Smith, Paris Hilton, Normani, Bella Hadid, and Indya Moore - but the musician and entrepreneur announced her new men's line with inclusive male models as well!
It was a groundbreaking day as Lizzo stood beautifully - the first plus size black woman - on the cover of Vogue magazine for the October 2020 issue.
Never one to keep quiet about an injustice, Lizzo posted a TikTok video aimed at her judgmental shamers. The video consisted of work-outs and exercises, with a voice explaining that she's not working out to have your ideal body type. She went on to tell people to mind their own business because that's what she's doing, minding her business.
Instantly earning praise, Lizzo continues to be a leader and advocate for body acceptance, regardless of size, color, or ability.
Dancer Amanda LaCount popped up on America's Got Talent to show off her killer moves in a popping upbeat dance routine. After sharing her story of being told she was too big to dance (we know she's not the only one who has heard this), Amanda took the stage and proved everyone wrong.
Surprisingly (or maybe not), model Heidi Klum slammed the buzzer mid-routine. The internet and audience were outraged at her decision. Check out the routine below and let us know what you think!
