Known for her hilarious Bridesmaids quotes and her starring role on Mike & Molly, actress Melissa McCarthy is living proof that you don't have to be plastered across gossip sites in bikini photos to be laugh-out-loud funny.

Plus-size women can feel like stars, too.

After co-designing her Emmys dress with dressmaker Daniella Pearl, the 41-year-old - who combed through "9 million dresses with taffeta or shiny bows" - decided to create a clothing line for women with similar body types.

"Trying to find stuff that's still fashion-forward in my size is damn near impossible," she tells The Hollywood Reporter. "It's either for like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker, and there is nothing in the middle."

It wasn't until McCarthy became a mom to daughters Vivian, 4, and Georgette, 1, that she stopped feeling insecure about her physical appearance.

LeAnn Rimes has spent much of this year sparring with her weight critics, be they her own Twitter followers, celebrity gossip sites or even fellow stars.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday, the singer says she feels like a victim of bullies - in this case the media - in the wake of the constant speculation.

"I’ve kind of gotten over it when it comes to myself," she said, criticizing those who mock her because it's insulting to people with real eating disorders.

"These are diseases. Using them as name calling, it’s almost bullying. I feel for people are actually going through these diseases. I’m not one of them."

Asked by Ellen if she's "not anorexic in any way or bulimic at all," Rimes said, "No, I am not but I do feel like the press … they’ve been very irresponsible."

"Calling a lot of people fat or anorexic or bulimic or whatever it may be, it just seems like bullying now," Rimes said, "instead of really taking these diseases seriously that a lot of people are going through."

"That’s good that you got to clear that up," DeGeneres said.

Her husband, Eddie Cibrian, defended Rimes earlier this week, calling his spouse a workout fiend with a very healthy appetite, and the rumors revolving around her body irritate him as "she eats more than I do sometimes!"

Rigorous private lessons on how to be royal.

Rumors about losing too much weight.

Scrutiny over when she'll have a baby.

Alleged kidnapping threats.

Kate Middleton has a lot on her plate these days, to be sure. But is Us' new cover featuring the Duchess trying to make her situation more alarming than it is?

Kate Middleton Under Pressure

Kate definitely has lost weight in the past year, but many brides do. And sure, people are probably waiting for her to get pregnant with a royal heir. But Kate is 29 and has been married less than six months. Is she really sweating it?

She's got plenty of time to raise a family and raise children. A girl's allowed to enjoy being married and getting acclimated to her new life for a bit.

Heck, if you believe Star magazine, she's already pregnant with twins. If her fake fertility is any indication, getting pregnant for real should be a breeze.

Snooki really needs to eat something besides Deena's face.

The Jersey Shore star has shed several dress sizes recently, barely resembling her Season 1 self (save for the orange spray tan and skanky antics, obvi).

Check out these Snooki pictures from 2009 and last week:

  • Snooki: Too Skinny

The vertically and intellectually challenged Jersey girl swears by Zantrex-3 Fat Burner (about as healthy as QuickTrim) and has been working out.

She has dropped over 15 pounds from her petite 4’ 9” frame, which has left her looking like a different, though still ridiculously dressed person.

Apparently it's been a well-received change. She Tweeted Tuesday:

“LOL so some girl comes up to me n goes ‘you look like one of those girls from the jersey shows, but you look better.’ Uhm thanks? Lmao,”

What do you think? Does Snooki look better or worse with the extra 15 lbs.?

More importantly, if you're a guy (or Deena), would you ... y'know?!

LeAnn Rimes' weight has become a cause for concern.

Everybody from Twitter followers to Giuliana Rancic has been weighing in (pun intended) on the country star's frame of late, even as Rimes repeatedly asserts that her thin physique is due to exercise, not starvation.

Her husband, Eddie Cibrian, says he can vouch for that.

The Playboy Club star told Access Hollywood that rumors regarding his wife irritate him because "I know she’s healthy - she eats more than I do sometimes!"

"She eats healthy, but she works out pretty hard too, and she actually takes pride in the way she looks," Cibrian added. "It’s a shame that people will jump on the bandwagon just because she is fit - and she’s far from unhealthy."

"[LeAnn] works out like crazy... she works out hard. She boxes. She trains."

The latest round of hubbub about LeAnn's weight began August 30, when bikini photos were published online showing a much thinner, more vascular LeAnn.

Rimes shoots back at her critics frequently. This time, Eddie did it for her.

Rob Kardashian may have been the night's most improved dancer, but Ricki Lake's flashy moves during the jive earned her the highest score of the night.

The Dancing With the Stars contender, who scored a 23 to lead the pack, is happy about that result - but even more pleased about her shrinking body.

Lake, who said she was inspired by former contestant Kirstie Alley's weight loss on DWTS last season, has already dropped 12 pounds and several sizes.

"I'm really getting in great shape," the talk show host said afterward. "I'll be wearing less and less clothing. The smaller I get, the less will be covered."

Watch Ricki deliver Monday night's best routine here:

Time for a big, fat celebration.

There are celebrity weight loss stories, and then there's this. Kirstie Alley cleared the 100 lb. weight-loss hurdle this summer, a truly impressive feat.

"When I hit that mark, I went, 'That's it!'" Alley told People this week from Florence, Italy. "I have more energy than I've ever had in my whole life."

While Alley's weight has fluctuated in recent years, the actress, now 60, hit a wall two years ago at 230 pounds: "My body had gotten really weak."

No longer.

By dancing daily after her dazzling appearance on Dancing with the Stars, where she came in second, changing to an organic diet and following Organic Liaison, her own weight-loss program, she's turned her life around for good.

Are the Ali Lohan plastic surgery rumors true? Difficult to say. Has she lost weight? One self-proclaimed expert says that totally happened - in horrifying fashion!

A "leading nutrition expert" (the kind quoted by Radar Online) estimates that Ali’s weight PLUMMETED to a gaunt, anemic, borderline waifish 95 lbs. lately.

Judging by Ali Lohan pictures like this, he could be right:

Muscle Wasting

Lindsay Lohan’s younger sister, who recently signed a modeling contract, looks emaciated with sunken cheeks and skinny arms and legs, Dr. Majid Ali feels.

“She is very underweight. By looking at her cheekbones you can tell that she has muscle wasting going on ... She may binge and purge plus calorie restrict.”

This guy can expect to hear from the Lohan family attorney REAL fast.

Chaz Bono has said that the considerable backlash against him joining Dancing With the Stars this season only motivates him to work harder.

Apparently so. He's lost five pounds just six days of rehearsals.

People reports that Bono is being whipped into shape by his partner, 23-year-old former So You Think You Can Dance finalist Lacey Schwimmer.

Bono’s weight loss is a result of adding dancing into his regular routine, and is not a result of any dietary changes - but he still diets ardently.

Chaz Works Out

Bono has reportedly been adamant that some of the junk food on the show's rehearsal sets - courtesy of producers - could be thwarting his diet.

Chips, candy, granola and protein bars? Not gonna cut it. He has already made some very specific food requests in an effort to get into top shape.

He may not have the dance background (according to mom Cher) but it sounds like Bono is determined to put every ounce of effort into this.

Even Giuliana Rancic thinks LeAnn Rimes is too thin. Not a good sign.

The E! News personality, known for a slender figure herself, recently said she'd love to feed Rimes, saying "She lost a lot of weight from all the stress in her life. She seems a little thin right now and I think she looks great when she's a bit curvier."

Last night, LeAnn heard about Rancic's advice and was not happy.

Rimes Tweeted: "@GiulianaRancic hey, we should go to dinner sometime. You get criticized all the time for how small you are ... You can see just HOW MUCH I eat and maybe put a stop to this crazy 'shrinking' once and for all."

"Then we should workout together! Good luck with your restaurant!!!!"

LeAnn gets testy about her weight, as we know. One of her own fans soon found this out firsthand after she mixed it up with her on the subject.
