She’s over the rumors — four years of ’em! Vanderpump Rules star Katie Maloney-Schwartz took to her Instagram Stories to clap back on a long history of pregnancy rumors on August 14. Needless to say, the 32-year-old had a lot to say about the body-shaming she has dealt with.
“It’s been four glorious years of pregnancy rumors for me and a lot of people think that I’m pregnant because I gained weight,” the reality star sighed before explaining that “Pregnant women are not fat. They are pregnant, they are creating a life inside of them. Yes, I gained weight but whatever, people do that sometimes.”
This wouldn’t be the first time the brunette beauty has spoken out about dealing with body-shaming — in fact, she spoke about it extensively with People last year. Plus, back in season 6 of the Bravo hit, we saw Lisa Vanderpump‘s friend and party planner, Kevin Lee, say her weight was “out of control” and that she “has to work on it.”
“And then other people say it’s because I wear baggy clothes that I must be hiding a baby bump or whatever. I’m just gonna come clean,” the SUR waitress continued. “I really f—king love baggy clothes. I love big t-shirts, big sweatshirts — there’s nothing better. And there’s not one person that’s gonna disagree with me on that.”
Amen, girl. Who doesn’t love transitioning into comfy clothes at the end of the day? “And the only thing I’m hiding under my baggy clothes is a really fire body,” she laughed. “Anyway, thank you for coming to my TED talk and have a great day.”
Katie married her boyfriend and costar, Tom Schwartz, back in 2016 and has managed the pregnancy rumors since their nuptials. However, her 36-year-old hubby told Life & Style exclusively that the couple is “getting a feel for it” when it comes to parenting by “renting over the weekend from time to time, you know babysitting here and there.”
So dang cute. We’re ready when you guys are. Until then, you tell ’em, Katie!
