Tia Mowry has been getting that question you should NEVER ask someone: “Are you pregnant?” It’s because she’s put on a few pounds, but the pound aren’t due to pregnancy: they’re due to her cooking show, ‘Tia Mowry at Home’!
I just looked at my Instagram […] and someone was insinuating that I’m pregnant again. Guys, I’m not pregnant, I am just happy, and I’ve gained these extra 10, 15 lbs. because of my cooking show!
“I’m just enjoying life, and when I want to drop the pounds I will, but right now I’m happy with who I am.”
Good for Tia!
Tia called the pregnancy questions “body shaming.”
It’s pretty unfortunate. We live in a society that is so obsessed with being perfect. Why can’t we just be us? Someone even wrote on my Instagram today, ‘Looks like you’ve picked up a little weight. I hope you lose it. I want you to lose it.’ It’s like, really? Why would you say that? Why do you feel the need to say that?
“We need to be more supportive with body images, especially women, showing that all sizes are beautiful. I’m talking about in magazines, advertisements, in regards to what’s sexy and not sexy. We all need to be a little more supportive of each other.”
Hear, hear! Have you seen Tia’s show on the Cooking Channel?
She has some good recipes! All new episodes are airing for the holiday season :). Watch Tia chat with The Huffington Post below:
