Katie Hopkins is a reality TV star in Great Britain, but she got a lot of attention from all over the world when she said, "I don't believe you can be fat and happy. I think it's just a cop out." She says she'll prove her point by gaining and losing 50 pounds in less than a year. She's already gained the weight, now she's given herself a tight deadline to take it off. Hopkins has plenty of critics, who say she's being insensitive to people who are overweight or who struggle with eating disorders. Hopkins talked with Weekend Express about her experience, and whether or not it's changed her mind.
