Weekend bites: new Ben & Jerry's flavors!

When Ben & Jerry's announced their new line of cookie core ice cream, Weekend Express thought it would be a good idea to try some, y'know for the kids..  When we found out that Speculoos was one of the flavors?  We quickly got our hands on several pints because, hello, Speculoos is cookie butter and cookie butter is heaven sprinkled with cinammon.   Lynn, Ivan Cabrera and Coy Wire tried two other new flavors, Boom Chocolotta (Stripes reference, perhaps?) and Peanut Buttah, too.  They came out with a clear favorite.

"Big Fat" reality show with a message

When Whitney Thore posted videos of herself called "A Fat Girl Dancing" on Youtube last spring, she had no idea she would end up starring in a reality TV show. The videos went viral, and last March she talked to Weekend Express about her "No Body Shame" campaign. Whitney even taught Lynn Berry a few dance moves on our set.

Camera crews now follow the 30-year-old on My Big Fat Fabulous Life, airing Tuesday nights at 10pm ET on TLC.  Whitney returned to Weekend Express to talk about the show, and her campaign to promote self-love and acceptance.
