Alyssa Milano and Wendy Williams got into a heated arguement earlier today on The Wendy Williams Show!
The 43-year-old actress is known to post breastfeeding photos on her Instagram account, and the talk show host asked her if she expected to get such a strong response from her pics.
“I was surprised by the reaction and I was surprised that I was then put in this position of being a breastfeeding advocate – which I love, and I take that job with a lot of responsibility,” Alyssa said. “But it was kind of shocking that [people] were so opinionated about something that’s supposed to be so incredibly natural.”
Wendy then expressed her disdain for breastfeeding in public.
“I’m opinionated,” she said. “I don’t need to see that.”
Eventually Alyssa asked, “Why is it OK to show that picture of Miley Cyrus with two suspenders over her breasts, and it’s not ok [for women to breastfeed in public]? So for you, maybe you’ve sexualized breasts, where that [Miley outfit] is OK.”
The Miley Cyrus outfit Alyssa references during her argument with Wendy.
“Yes, they’re more sexual than a feeding thing,” Wendy agreed. “I don’t know why I feel this way. I just feel like.. I’m a mom also, breastfeeding is only a particular amount of time. The rest of the time your breasts are sexual things.”
“Biologically they’re not made for sexual things, that’s what we’ve done to them,” Alyssa countered, which was met with applause from the audience.
