Sally Struthers, the frequently ridiculed "All in the Family" actress-turned-teary-eyed infomercial humanitarian, has long struggled with weight issues, although it's been reported that she recently slimmed down in a dramatic fashion.
An unnamed source relayed the news to the New York Post prior to Struthers' appearance as master of ceremonies at an event in New York City: "Sally has lost a lot of weight, and this is the first time she's been back to New York since. She's as tiny as when she appeared as the apple of Archie Bunker's eye on 'All in the Family.' She looks fabulous." It's unclear how exactly the actress managed to shed those excess pounds — dieting, fitness walking or an online correspondence course, perhaps — but we're happy to hear that Struthers, 63, has taken steps towards a healthier lifestyle considering she's devoted so much time and energy helping to improve the lives of those less fortunate.
Struthers, whose recent TV credits include re-occurring roles on "Gilmore Girls" and "Still Standing," last appeared as the titular character in a production of "Hello, Dolly!" at the iconic Alhambra Dinner Theatre in Jacksonville, Fla. Her hopefully not-too-tempting co-stars? Fried cheesecake and a BBQ pork shank served with warm potato salad.
