Mikel Ruffinelli: World's Biggest Hips Might Just Be Right Here In Los Angeles
That's because she has nearly 100-inch-wide hips, perhaps the largest in the world. And she's proud of them, calling her look "unique" and "feminine."
But her double-wide life isn't without its challenges:
Everywhere she goes, Ruffinelli says, people whip out their cellphones and take pictures of her 8-foot hips.
Ruffinelli says she got it, of course, from her mama -- that her shape is genetic. She says her hips exploded with each child she bore. She now has four.

"With every child came more hips," Ruffinelli says.
"I love being unique."
