“It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years. In a strange way, I’m glad Katrina happened. It really cemented my place here in South Mississippi, It made me put roots down. I met my husband, and now, we have a happy, healthy baby boy. I just couldn’t have imagined my life any better than how it’s turned out.”
Carrie Duncan started her television career in 1998 at WSEE in Erie, Pennsylvania in the United States. During that winter, 111 inches of snow fell.

Carrie Duncan Interview
This Meteorologist Had an A+ Response to Disgusting Body Shaming
After giving birth to a baby boy in December, Carrie Duncan, a popular meteorologist who’s stationed at the local South Mississippi channel WLOX, was hoping to return from her maternity leave without any bumps in the road. But instead, she returned to a nasty body-shaming email from a viewer who criticized her “repulsive” weight gain, commenting that Duncan has a “horrid gut and huge arms” and is thus an “embarrassment” to the channel. How someone could find it in themselves to hurl these disgusting comments at another human being is beyond us, but apparently, this troll decided insulting a woman’s looks is a good use of their time.
Now, Duncan has decided to share the email with the public, where she’s putting the emailer’s message on blast with some poignant commentary, to boot.
“You know I shared A LOT with y’all over the past almost 15 years,” Duncan wrote on Facebook. She went on to acknowledge that she’s struggling with feeling comfortable with her body after giving birth. Although Duncan really doesn’t have to justify anything about her body to anyone, knowing that she’s having a hard time feeling good about herself after giving birth makes the viewer’s email that much more upsetting.
“I am not happy with my weight right [now] I am tired a lot and not getting much sleep and eating poorly, I know this. I appreciate the kindness you have shown to me, I am sharing this email I received to show you what some people have to go through.”
And to all of the people who seem to have nothing to do in their lives but send nasty emails, well, Duncan has a simple message for those trolls. “There are some people who are seriously unhappy,” she continued. “Please think about the people you are saying these things about and to. I believe this person also sent a horrible email which I didn’t read when I was pregnant. Here’s the thing, if you don’t like something/someone on tv, change the channel. Please STOP WITH THE HATE! Thank you! Rant over!”
For anyone who needs some realness about postpartum body image, look no further than Chrissy Teigen who has long been outspoken about the intense, unrealistic pressure on women to change their bodies ASAP after having kids. “Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we could ever need to be able to shed everything. So I think people get this jaded sensation that everybody’s losing it so quickly, but we just happen to be the ones who are out there,” she previously said in an interview to TODAY. “But nobody should feel like that’s normal, or like that’s realistic.” Cheers to that.
