    It refers to someone who has been in good physical condition but has now stopped training, stopped exercising and is letting the weight build up.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm going to agree with the first poster. It means to go along with an idea and in your particular case, as it refers to celebrities, I think the reference would mean that the press is going to buy into and promote the idea of the two being together in a relationship and publicize it. The final comment, "oh yeah, now everything's ruined" is suggesting that the relationship between the two will no longer be private (due to attention from the press).

  • It means that someone has started to put on weight. They are getting fat.

    Some women who were slim when they were younger may, after having children or reaching menopause, "run to fat".
