While I have not followed her career or really watched any of her shows or movies, I did see her on "Dancing with the Stars".
I watched her progress through the show and it was amazing to see her change from the proverbial "ugly duckling" to the "beautiful swan".
Her persistence, her ability to laugh at herself, to not give up no matter what, was truly inspiring. Not only did she make it to the finals, but she finally found her dancing feet, developed greater confidence in herself and lost tremendous weight in the process.
She is one heck of a woman and I truly admire her 'true grit'.
I have no doubt that she will keep off the weight this time.
