The girls mocking Rebecca's weight was all in good fun, but the same comments from a one-off character is cruel. The only difference, of course, is we never see Jeremy again. It struck me that Dorothy, who was the only one of the girls who wasn't snide about Rebecca's weight, was also the first to get genuinely pissed at how Jeremy was acting. Blanche had to talk her down from telling him off. She was more maternal than Rebecca's actual mother. In my top 10 of favourite GG episodes. I look at it that: Blanche is very vain and has her own issues with weight there were teased through the series, Blanche due to her being very vain again, would care if her kids (especially her daughters) are good looking, slim, etc. Also, people were not as mindful of not mocking weight and would make cruel remarks back when GG ran than today. 2 Link to comment
