COVER FAB: Amber Riley Joins "GLEE" Co-Stars on MARIE CLAIRE Cover

Amber Riley joins her "Glee" co-stars Lea Michele and Dianna Agron on the May 2011 cover of Marie Claire Magazine.  See the cover inside and see the three stars and their alternate cover shots.

 

 

YBF star Amber Riley landed on one of the May 2011 covers of Marie Claire.  This is BIG news for the star as it's her first solo mainstream cover.  In the first cover shot for next month's Marie Claire, she poses with two of her "Glee" co-stars while another cover is a solo shot that all 3 women received. 

Amber on who her real life Kurt is: “Kurt! Chris Colfer really is my Kurt. That’s my baby. Having his character at that other school - Dalton Academy - this season is driving me up the wall.”

 

The "Glee" star has been landing all types of shine lately--and this is her second solo cover after her appearance on ESSENCE last month. See all MC covers below:

 

Looking uber fab Amber.  Congrats!

Duh...she wouldn't be on tv

Duh...she wouldn't be on tv if she wasn't talented. Maybe white people have no choice but to pair the black chick in the middle cause black women are fat. GET OVER YOURSELVES PEOPLE AND STOP BELIEVING THIS BULLCHIT THAT FAT IS BEAUTIFUL. FAT IS NOT PRETTY. PUT DOWN THE FRIED CHICKEN, MAC & CHEESE AND WHITE BREAD.

Yeah i thought i was the only

Yeah i thought i was the only tired of seeing the stereotype of the fat and loud black chicks. I mean I'm happy that black women are being recognised in major tv shows but Amber does not represent me at all as a person. And I'm not criticising Amber personally( because I think she's just fab and can dress her ass off). I'm just stating the fact every kiddie tv show has a fat black chick these days; nickelodeon, Disney channel etc

Why do people keep bringing

Why do people keep bringing up black men in this post? Who cares what their preferences are!!! Who gives two shits?? This is a women's magazine and amber riley is an extremely talented, beautiful woman who is on a very successful TV so she has a right to the kudos she gets. Anybody with an eye can see that she is overweight. Nobody got on here calling her thick or curvy. Nobody really commented on her weight and no one gave her props for being healthy so I dont understand why people feel the need to point that out. Someone said there are no fit black women on TV. Well maybe that is because there arent that many black sitcoms anymore. But when you look at ALL of the black women on TV, they are slim. Keke Palmer, Gabriel Union, and Taraji Henson are some slender black women to name a few. So the MAJORITY of black women on TV are small. So please STFU about this big black women thing. JUST SAYING
Everybody Panic's picture

LMAOl.....I love the term 2

LMAOl.....I love the term 2 chits! Not one chit but TWO....LMAO I have to argue that I don't see Keke Palmer or Gabriel or Taraji on TV... I see Amber and I don't like it. I don't like fat black women on TV. Enough already. I want to see slim attractive black women to counter the mammy stereotype shoved down my throat every Pinsol, Lysol and Hamburger Helper commercial. TV is entertainment; an opportunity to be taken away from reality. I see Amber's at Target, Nordstrom and everywhere in between. So again...I don't want to any more fat black women on tv. I really don't. Fat women don't inspire me to be fit. Fat women don't encourage me. And I'm not the only one who feels this way.

BITCH (OR NIGGA)

BITCH (OR NIGGA) STFU!!! Amber was cast because she has talent. Sooo STFU!!! U throwing in the Mammy stereotype doesn't work so STFU! BITCH who cares what you want to see??? In MOST advertisments for cleaning solvents they use 'motherly' women... black or white sooo STFU!!! YOU sound like a fucking loser... like a fat whale snipping and pasting a headshot of yourself onto photos of slimmer women... that encourage you???..... go shove ur face with the tin of brownies hidden beneath ur bed, but most importantly, BITCH, SHUT THE FUCK UP

You want to see skinny black

You want to see skinny black girl on TV watch Kat Graham on Vampire Diaries. You might not be the only person who feels the way you do, but there are people out there who like seeing a beautiful, confident, black woman like Amber on the TV. Believe or not, but she inspires people and give people confidence. Not all, no, but there are people out their who love Amber for showing that being big doesn't mean you can't look good.

Do black women really believe

Do black women really believe MOST black men would choose this fat chick over those two white girls on the cover with her? Are you all really in that much denial about the problem of so many overweight of black women as a group?

most black women don't want

most black women don't want to ruin their hair so they don't workout, a lot of them are lazy, and most have low self esteem. Most women don't want a fat man and most men don't want a fat woman. People should lose weight for one reason to be healthy. Amber, monique, loni love, sherry shepard, whoopi, lady who plays the part of Mr. Brown daughther on "The Browns". And people wonder why they are hiring dark skin "latinas" to play African american women roles.

Amber always looks good! She always knows what dresses to wear and how to dress for being a full figured women! The reason Gabby gets so much drama is she doesnt know how to dress her fat ass! She needs to take notes! Its nothing wrong with being plus size! Women are beautiful not matter what size they however you gotta learn what works for your body!

At what point do black men

At what point do black men have to stop putting up with 80% of the black women on TV being overweight. Most black men do not prefer overweight women. The like curvy women with flat stomachs. This chick has a fat face and neck. I'm sure she also has fat on her back and stomach. Non blacks would never stand for hollywood to have 8 or 10 of their women on TV being fat. It's ridiculous

Who are these beautiful white

Who are these beautiful white ladies? Petite women rock!!!!! Damn i was fooled, i saw the names Amber, Lea and Dianna and automatically thought they were all white. I did not know a black girl was amongst the crew. To be honest once i saw the black girl i started looking for the typical black names, you know like Starkeisha, Dynasia, Jaleesa, Jequana, Altiquisha, Quintessa, Shadiah or something along those lines. Good to see your parents thought about you before naming you those typical black repulsive names!!!!!!!!!! I'm guessing they are educated and not GHETTO SAVAGES???

Wow, Amber Riley looks

Wow, Amber Riley looks fantastic and she's clearly stealing that cover shot away from those other two stick figures. As for the solor covers - Lea Michele clearly takes herself too seriously; she's stiff and shows no emotion or personality. Get ovah yourself girl. I like Dianna Argon's close up; the tossled hair, mona lisa smile = good pic. But on the group shot, Dianna's arm looks dead; like it belongs to a mannequin. LOL. Amber's solo cover is cute and natural, no pretense at all, which makes her truly beautiful and sex. I'll be buying her cover!
