-year-old woman is attempting to become the heaviest woman ever, but her nearest competitor, a woman who holds the record of "World's Fattest Mom," is having a hard time letting go of her heavyweight claim to fame, even as she says she's going on a diet.
Susanne Eman, a 728-pound woman in Casa Grande, Ariz., is attempting to get into Guinness World Records as the "World's Heaviest Woman." The 2012 edition of the book will be released later this month.
The last woman to hold the title, 1,200-pound Rosalie Bradford, died in 2006. "The category is currently open," a Guinness representative told HuffPost Weird News. "We've got several claims that we're researching, and we may have a new title holder very soon."
Eman has told reporters that she wants to shatter the record by packing on 1,600 pounds. Her ultimate goal: weighing in at one ton. She won the title by weighing a whopping 532 pounds when she gave birth to her daughter, Jacqueline, in February 2007 - an event that required 30 doctors. Simpson just announced to the world via HuffPost Weird News that she's decided to go on a diet, but she's having a hard time letting go of the "prestige" that goes along with the honour of being America's heaviest woman - and said she views Eman as an upstart trying to usurp her hard-earned fame.
