“I love my shape and I see no reason to diet because I don’t have health problems,” stated Ruffinelli during an interview with Gawker.
“Everywhere I go I get attention for my hips, both good and bad,” Mikel Tells Closer.
“When I walk down the street, I can hear the shutters going on camera phones and people laughing at me. Some people assume I’ve had surgery, but it’s all natural.”

Holding an 8 foot-around frame doesn’t come without its share of inconveniences however. Ruffinelli stated in an interview that she generally has to walk through doors sideways as well as keep the shower door ajar due to limited space.
“When I travel by plane or train I have to buy two seats because I can’t fit… into one,” Mikel revealed. “It’s quite expensive. I drive a truck because it’s big enough to fit all of me.”
Mikel, who is studying for a psychology degree, has a healthy appetite and typically consumes 3,000 calories a day, reports the Daily mail.
“It sounds like a lot to have 3,000 calories, but for someone my size, it’s not really.
“I might have a breakfast of two eggs with sausage and bacon and a handful of potatoes. Lunch is fried fish and French fries, but dinner’s my big meal,” she confesses.
“I like to make barbecue chicken with rice or mash. I have a big portion – but I’m not greedy. I snack on peanuts, granola bars and crisps.”
