Kathy Kinney, Drew's tormenter Mimi on "The Drew Carey Show," says she battled her weight for years before friends and therapy helped her realize she doesn't need to be "the woman in the bikini."

"It's a struggle for every woman who doesn't look like Heather Locklear," Kinney, 44, said told USA Weekend magazine."What comes with age and acceptance is: This is how I look. For some reason, in this lifetime, I'm supposed to be a large woman."
