July 21 is "National Junk Food Day." It's a day to commemorate Little Debbies, Tasty Cakes, and Ho Hos. It's a day we don't have to feel guilty for shoving our faces with Fritos, Doritos, and Cheetos.

Jessica Simpson is no stranger to the tabloids following her every move and pointing out a tiny little roll here or a section of cellulite there. She was recently placed on the "List of Fat Celebrities" on the NY Post website and has been dubbed "the next Kirstie Alley." Recent rumors say she must be pregnant.
Then there are shows like "Celebrity Fit Club" that broadcast celebs, usually has beens, trying to get back to their “prime” size.
There are some celebrities who embrace the fact they are not in the perfect form, or completely far from it. Kirstie Alley is one, as well as Queen Latifah, who has slimmed down but accepts she’s never going to be a size two.
Men also are victim to the "fat celeb" category like Steven Seagal and Fat Joe (obviously). Are people worried about the stars' health or is it just a natural thing to make fun of flaws on people who are in the spotlight?
"Celebrity Fit Club" star Kevin Federline needs another season on the show:

Kirstie Alley understands she'll never be a size 2.
A quite large Kevin Smith:
