320 Pounds And Counting!
Now, before you look at her pictures, get a mental image of what you think a woman who weighs 320 lbs looks like...
Not quite what you were expecting, was it??!!
The tallest and biggest woman in the world lives in Holland. She is 7'4" and weighs 320 lbs. What a relief to know we aren't overweight, just too short!
But wait - cynic that I am, I decided to research on this story. As it turns out, my hunch was correct!
The woman in the pictures above is named Heather Greene. The second picture is a complete fake. It is of unknown origin and shows signs of being digitally edited to make the blonde on the left look unnaturally tall.
Also, Heather is not from Holland. She actually lives in Las Vegas. Nor is she really the tallest woman in the world. That distinction belongs to 7-foot 8-inch Yao Defen of China, according to The Guinness Book of World Records.
Just goes to show that you have to take everything you hear (and read) with a grain of salt. Not everything you get in the news is necessary true...
