Courtney Thorne-Smith Has Some Familiarity With Body Image Issues

According to IMDB, the author of Great American Celebrity Novel Courtney Thorne-Smith "once considered herself overly busty with a 32DD measurement but eschewed reduction surgery in favor of yoga which she says reshaped her figure of a C cup. 'My body fat got redistributed, and my breasts got smaller.'" That's crazy!

(As our scene opens, heroine Kate Keyes-Morgan is being counseled by her husband/manager Hamilton, who for all intents and purposes has "evil" written on his forehead in Sharpie pen.)

"What can I get you, my little princess? Tea? Decaf coffee? Wait a minute—your scene is done, isn't it? You could even have a piece of toast if you want. Shall we celebrate with a little sugar-free fruit spread? Yummy!"

Still trying to figure out how she had gone from the brink of divorce to being offered carbohydrates (well, carbohydrate-like foodstuff), Kate stepped gingerly into the minefield of communication with her husband. "Thank you, honey, that would be great. Although, we didn't actually get to my scene yesterday ... Yesterday was pretty much a waste of a day."

"Really?" Handing her a cup of tea and leading her back to the table (apparently the toast offer was completed-scene-dependent), Hamilton was the picture of chilvalry and husbandly concern. "Well, isn't that too bad? Why don't you sit right here and tell daddy what happened?"

"Well," said Kate, relaxing into his attentive mood, "It was just another high-drama day in the life of Sapphire Rose. Apparently, her new diet isn't working—again—so her skirt didn't fit—so we lost a whole day. Can you believe that?" Kate shook her head and grinned, ready to share a laugh with her husband at the absurdity of Sapphire's behavior. Instead, her grin was met with a very serious expression and a compassionate sigh.

"Poor Sapphire," said Hammilton, as if they had been discussing a dear friend who had lost a parent to cancer. "It must be so difficult for her."
