New York, NY, January 10, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- In response to BeautifulPeople.com’s recent decision to cancel the memberships of 5,000 members due to holiday weight gain, dating site CurvyBlackBook.com wants to offer these people a free one-year membership.
Online dating website BeautifulPeople booted these members for having too big of a booty, stating that they no longer met the site's beauty standards as a reason for expulsion. But CurvyBlackBook.com, a casual dating site that focuses on “real” attractive men and women, wants these big and beautiful former members to know they have a place for meeting other like-minded individuals on its website. If these 5,000 expelled members can offer proof of being kicked off BeautifulPeople because of weight gain, CurvyBlackBook.com will give them a free one-year Gold membership to their site, a value of $120.
Says CurvyBlackBook.com Spokesperson Mandy Tompkins, “Our members are real men and women, who are confident about their bodies and who don’t starve themselves for a misguided view of beauty. They realized that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and what our site does is celebrate these sexy people. We welcome all these attractive BeautifulPeople expats with open arms.”
Earlier this week, Greg Hodge, managing director of BeautifulPeople.com told news sources they booted the "festive fatties" off the site after they posted photos of themselves during the holidays showing they had "let themselves go." Site founder Robert Hintze added in a company statement: “Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded.”
“Marilyn Monroe was a size 12, which today is considered large,” says Tompkins. “If she were to join that site, would she get voted off for being too fat? Unfortunately, it looks that way.”
Ex-members of the BeautifulPeople cut wanting to take advantage of the CurvyBlackBook.com offer should follow the instructions at curvyblackbook.com.
