Why?!?!?

Donna Simpson lives in Old Bridge, New Jersey. Ever since she was a little girl, she has been bullied for her weight. At age 9, she weighed 184 lbs. When she was a teenager, Donna tried diet pills, but decided that she would rather continue as she was. When she was 24, she married a chef who encouraged her to continue to gain weight; unfortunately, they eventually divorced.

Later, in a chat room for overweight women, Donna met Phillippe Gouamba. He has also encouraged her eating habits simply stating that they make her happy. Since she met him, she has become the oldest women in recorded history to give birth to a child.

Today, she continues her weight gain quest, now with the explicit goal of making it to 1000 lbs. I suppose we all want to achieve greatness within our lives in something. And some would say she has. Donna runs a successful website where male fans pay to watch her eat. In 2008, she had 260 subscribers ranging in age from 20 to 68. Wow!

Well, whatever makes her happy, right? She's not hurting anyone but herself. Well, Dr. Carla Wolper disagrees. The doctor has criticized Donna, and claims that her eating habits will eventually hurt tax payers. Our response to Dr. Wolper: "Quiet lady! Donna's eating! I wanna see her get to 1000 lbs!"
