'Ruby': Old Letters Reveal an Early Food Addiction (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Mar 14th 2011 4:50AM
Old Letters on 'Ruby'Ruby Gettinger needs to lose weight or she will literally die. At one time weighing 700 pounds, she's come a long way but her weight-loss journey is far from over. On 'Ruby' (Sun., 8PM ET on STYLE), she finds some old letters. She assumes they're notes passed between friends during class, but they're more like journal entries she wrote to herself.

"Not one was a happy letter ... But then I thought they may be answers to something that I've been looking for from 12 years of my life."

She reads, "'Take me to a place where ... I am no longer an outcast and out of control with my addiction.' ... In a way I don't think anyone could help me, and not even myself," Ruby says of those high school days.

TLC is building a reality show around a morbidly obese family

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 20th 2009 7:02PM
RubyThey've done just about every variation of little people show you can imagine, so as executive producer Mike Duffy said, it's not exploitation. "Little People, Big World is about little people living in a big world. This is about big people living in a little world -- fat people living in a skinny world." Doesn't that sound so much better?

They've found a family of four tipping the scales at over 1,400 pounds. While there's no prize money involved, the family is determined to lose some weight. The six episode series, One Big Happy Family, will follow them on their journey of self-improvement with different episodes spotlighting different family members. Style network has already met a good response to their chronicle of Ruby, a 477-pound woman looking to lose weight.

(Sun., 8PM, National Geographic)
It's a dog eat dog world out there, but Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz found that before the recent birth of his first child, his bulldog Hemingway was taking the cliché a bit too literally.

Wentz and wife Ashlee Simpson called on Cesar Millan to help them quash Hemingway's building aggression, after they bought a new bulldog puppy -- Rigby -- to provide Hemingway with a pal, only to see the elder dog attack Rigby.

Cesar, in an episode that kicks off the annual 'DW' Week, teaches the couple a few simple tricks that will ensure their household is peaceful, and more importantly, safe, for their new son Bronx Mowgli.

Too bad Cesar couldn't have talked them out of that baby name ...

(Sun., 8PM, CBS) 17th season finale
We've come quite a way since that naughty season opener where Marcus' junk fell out of his trunks.

Hard feelings over chocolate chip cookies, a marriage proposal and a girl named Sugar who's proved to be anything but sweet have marked this season, another filled with grungy, food-deprived existences and backstabbing.

Tonight, the winner is announced and the reunion after-show begins (10PM) immediately after. Will Matty go home with a fiancée and one meeeellion dollars? Could be. Meanwhile, though season 17 will be a memory after tonight, don't get too nostalgic; season 18 is already on the schedule for a Feb. 12 premiere.

britney: for the record'Britney: For the Record'
(Sun., 10PM, MTV)
Here it is, straight from the Britney's mouth: The scoop on the pop star's frenzied life, on the eve of her Dec. 2 birthday (her 27th) and the release of her new CD, 'Circus.'

No topic is off limits in the 90-minute interview, as Britney even dishes on the consequences of her psychological breakdown. Says Spears, "(My life has) no excitement, there's no passion. I think it's too in-control. If I wasn't under the restraints I'm under, I'd feel so liberated."

Her last effort with a confessional video -- the infamous 'Britney and Kevin: Chaotic' -- proved to be the beginning of her downward spiral, so here's hoping 'For the Record' won't be followed by more personal drama during her comeback bid.

(Sun., 8PM, Style) series premiere
Pretty, charming and funny Ruby Gettinger has already embarked on a successful weight loss journey.

But the Savannah resident still has a way to go -- she's down to 500 pounds, from her all-time high of 700 -- and her doctor has just informed the diabetic that worse health problems are ahead if she doesn't radically change her lifestyle.

This inspirational, sometimes heartbreaking series follows Ruby as she deals with the challenges of living in a world that's not made for her size and commits to eating healthier, exercising and getting to the emotional root of her weight problem – with her friends (including actress Brittany Daniel), family, doctors and trainers helping her all the way.

The Closer: Ruby

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 10th 2007 7:25AM
the closer(S03E04) Wow. Just... wow. I had to keep reminding myself to breathe during this episode. I held my breath as Brenda and the Priority Homicide team looked for a kidnapper. And then I held it as Brenda, and then Sgt. Gabriel, interviewed the creepiest sex offender ever shown on television. And then again, as they found the kidnapped 8-year old they were looking for. Let's just say my brain didn't get a whole lot of oxygen tonight.

And let's talk about that sex offender for a second. Was he scary or what? I am going to have nightmares about that guy tonight. I kept muttering, "Oh my God" to myself as the guy said, "You see, everyone pretends kids don't want to have sex. But they do."
