4. I Am Beautiful In Every Single Way

In early 2009, radio host Laura Ingraham took an on-air shot at Meggie Mac’s weight. Without hesitation, Meghan latched onto the opportunity to fashion herself into the latest role model for women.  Which, of course, meant a Daily Beast column brimming with plus-size-friendly platitudes and a handful of painfully trite girl power tweets. “To all the curvy girls out there, don’t let anyone make you feel bad about your body. I love my curves and you should love yours too,” she tweeted.  And then there was her guest hosting stint on “The View” in which she told Ingraham, “Kiss my fat ass!”

Unsure of whether to laugh or cry, Meghan’s editors shook their heads, sighed, and wondered if her high six-figure advance would ever pay off.  They shredded Meggie Aguilera’s chapter on body image and agreed they would never again speak of The Plagiarism Incident.  Just to be safe, they also changed the title of Meghan’s book from Dirrty Sexy Politics to Dirty Sexy Politics. Law suit averted!
