King of Queens: Who's the Fat Chick?

Did they replace the actress who plays Carrie? Because the new one is kind of fat.

They should change the show to the Kings of Queens because it is hard to tell Doug and Carrie apart.

Doug's the thin one, right?

You guys are rough, man. I heard her a couple of nights ago on Access Hollywood [actually, it was the HIGHLY annoying Billy Bush rambling], so I ran in to see what you guys have been ranting about for a while now.

I really don't think there's anything wrong with her. Of course, she wasn't wearing a swimsuit or thong or anything, but while she didn't look like her old self, she shouldn't be starring in Fattest Actress either..

She's not ginormous, but my eyes were bugging out (and not in a good way) when I saw her in last night's episode, walking away from the camera in a pair of jeans. The thing that annoys me is how the show kind of glosses over this transformation, it's like when that daughter just disappeared on "Family Matters"

well...the majority of last season had her pregnant. I'm almost certain she delivered during the taping of that season. For me, the odd thing is I don't remember of any actresses that have had kids during their programs haveing really failed to get back to their character's look right away. This one looks like it's on for good.

I think there was a thread about this not long ago... she used to have an awesome body, but now she's somewhat of a cow. Some women snap back after childbirth - she has not.

Here's an image a grabbed from the thread at tivocommunity.com. I don't know the air date but the record date was probably last fall. There are some pics on livewire from the golden globes on jan 13th, but she's wearing a frilly black dress that makes it hard to judge her size.

I've only read a few pages of the thread over there, but it's pretty apparent most of the females don't like the tone of the thread. She's not fat, men are sexist pigs, this is what causes anorexia, "attractive" means more than looks, blah blah blah. They sound a bit defensive.

The fact that it is such a change from how she looked before her pregnancy is, I believe, causing the discussion. She's not "fat" fat, but she's definitely larger than she was before.

From the People's Choice Awards in February, 2005:

It's all relative....She may not be fat by real people standards ...but by her character or what she looked like...she's just about doubled in size.
