ABC Family’s Huge will feature Seventeen Magazine’s Body Peace Treaty in next week’s episode airing on Monday, August 9th at 9/8c. A few of the characters talk about and sign the treaty themselves. The Seventeen Body Peace Project mission is to open a dialogue so girls and young women can recognize damaging thought patterns and make peace with their body image. The project launched in 2007 with best-selling author and Queen of Self Esteem, Jessica Weiner. The goal is to have girls go online and sign “The Seventeen Body Peace Treaty,” a truce that they’ll be making between their bodies and minds.
As part of the partnership, Seventeen Magazine will feature Hayley Hasselhoff, who plays Amber in Huge, in a four page fashion story in the September issue (on stands Tuesday, Sept. 10) Additionally, Jess Weiner will be creating a “Live Huge” version of the Body Peace Treaty (to be posted online in support of Monday’s episode).
Here is what Hayley had to say about the scene in next week’s show:
“The scene was very close to my heart because it is beautiful to see that not only did the show Huge realize it was very important to love yourself and feel comfortable in your own skin– but also that Seventeen magazine is promoting this idea, and they have so many wonderful stars who support the Body Peace Treaty. The words of wisdom in the magazine really made an impact on me.”
