TV News Anchor Jennifer Livingston Responds to Jibes About Her Weight on Live TV


While the internet and social media has been an amazing and wonderful invention, that has empowered us by enabling us to do so many fabulous and astonishing things – like gathering information in a nano-second, giving those with no voices a voice, making the far seem not so distant, sadly, some have chosen to use it as a weapon.

It’s horrifying to see how some people choose to use social media as a tool to make others feel terrible about themselves. Just because you have a keyboard at your disposal, it doesn’t mean you can shoot out horrible, offensive comments to people that you might or might not know. This is not on! It’s time to take a stand against bullying!

Someone who has taken a stand, is TV News Anchor, Jennifer Livingston. Jennifer received an email from a viewer about her weight and decided to respond to the viewer on live television. Her eloquent and impassioned response about bullying is inspiring. This is worth 4 minutes of your time.

It’s time we all took a stand. To throw the viewer’s email subject title back at him – we all have a community responsibility to do so! It’s time we put a stop to bullying!

Thank you Jennifer Livingston!

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
