I lost interest in the show because it veered into territory where it was more about her lost childhood and possible abuse than about her struggle with her weight.
I thought it veered off into those directions because it was trying to hide the fact that its star had stopped losing weight! What do you do if you have a show about weight loss, and the person gets a swelled head and decides to ignore the experts, stops doing everything that will help her lose weight, starts gaining weight, and won't cooperate? You hope it's temporary, and start focusing on her friends, her past relationship, her "wacky adventures," and her upbringing, in hopes she'll get back on track.
Ruby is a likeable person and I want her to do well, but she's got an oppositional personality and -- despite all evidence to the contrary -- thinks she knows how to run her life and her weight loss. She needs to get serious. I think maybe the only way she will is off-camera. Yet her Facebook feed is full of "Tell OWN to pick up my show so you can watch the rest of my journey!"
Her saying the show became about a number on the scale is the total opposite of what I remember it becoming. She also said she was shocked and devastated when it was cancelled and went into a deep depression because it came out of the blue. That's just delusion on her part. You KNOW that the Style Network people were working with her to save the show, but she wouldn't cooperate. She didn't see the handwriting on the wall -- a show about weight loss where the subject won't lose weight is doomed -- but we as viewers did. She also said her brother John died two months after the show was cancelled and that added to her depression.
C'mon, Ruby, you have the capacity to be great -- stop the games, stop the attention-whoring, and be the person who's inside all that.
