Donna Simpson, 700 Pound ‘Professional Eater’, Aiming for 1,000 Pounds & Guinness Record Book
The American dream is alive and well for one New Jersey woman. Donna Simpson, the Daily Mail reports, is a single mom who weighs a whopping 700 pounds (317 kg). That’s more than four times the weight of the average American woman, who is no Kate Moss to begin with. But rather than trying to shed some of those absurdly excessive pounds, Simpson is actually actively gaining them by the hundreds. She’s a woman on a mission– to make it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the World’s Most Obese Woman. Another 300 pounds ought to do the trick, and 1,000 (453.5 kg)– half a ton– has a nice ring to it, at least for Simpson.
To achieve her weighty goal, Simpson consumes a staggering 15,000 calories every single day. Helping her shovel down all that fattening chow is her four-year-old daughter Jacqueline, who assists her with shopping, cooking and feeding. It’s tough getting around when you’re 700 pounds, and Simpson relies on a reinforced electric scooter for mobility. Even giving birth was a colossal effort; it took a team of 30 medical professionals to deliver Jacqueline via a risky Caesarian section. But to Simpson, it was worth the risk– she positively revels in her title of Heaviest Woman to Give Birth.
You may be asking yourself, how can Simpson afford to provide for her children (she also has a 15-year-old son) and have enough money to buy 100,000 weekly calories worth of food for herself? Well, she’s literally made a living out of being obese. She’s got a website, OfficialDonnaSimpson.com, where “fat admirers” pay to watch her eat and show off her rippling curves. Simpson says she’s got 7,000 fans who pay anywhere from $7.95 for a three-day site membership to $19.95 for a monthly subscription. Her annual income is reportedly in the range of $100,000, placing her on par with many lawyers, doctors and finance types.
“I love eating and people love watching me eat,” she explained to the Daily Mail. “It makes people happy, and I’m not harming anyone,” she added, forgetting, perhaps, the harm she’s doing to herself. Simpson suffers from diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. She will surely die prematurely, leaving her children motherless in the process.
But for now, she’s mainly concerned with getting into the record books. The previously-married Simpson says she’s also looking for a new partner to help feed her so little Jacqueline doesn’t have to do so much work. “He must be handsome, slim, and at least 10 years younger than me,” she told the Daily Mail.
