About a month ago, I filled all of you in on my friendship with Lizzie Velasquez, or as some have called her “The World’s Ugliest Woman”. Lizzie is one of three people in the world with a rare condition that prohibits her from acquiring and maintaining fat on her body. Since she has begun sharing her story with the world, there has been a lot of positive feedback and supporters, but there has also been extremely negative comments as well.
Never one to let the negative attitudes of others effect her, Lizzie has remained positive and enthusiastic about getting her story out to the public and letting others know that life is truly what you make it and if she can overcome obstacles in her life, so can you.
Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of accompanying Lizzie to Los Angeles to film an episode of The Doctors. The whole experience was amazing; we met so many wonderful people, went sight seeing and got a nice surprise trip out of it, too!
Here are a couple of clips from our segment on the show which aired today:
