The Bachelor's Melissa Rycroft took heat for comments she made about Kim Kardashian's snatched waist at the Met Gala, but she's standing by her comments.

The former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader was criticized for body shaming the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star in an Instagram post on Monday, May 6.

Kim showed up at the Met Gala wearing a Thierry Mugler corseted shirt dress. Her waist was snatched to the gawds, as the queens would say.

Melissa said Kardashian's waist was "not natural" and she was concerned that Kim's unnatural appearance would influence gullible teenagers on social media.

She said Kim was "not something young ones should be looking up to."

Melissa clarified her statements during a podcast on Thursday, May 9, saying she wasn't body shaming Kim or putting down her looks.

"I was very careful not to put down her looks," Melissa told her husband Tye Strickland during the podcast. "I went, 'I don’t want to say she looks weird, I don't want to say she looks ugly. I don't want to say she's a bad mom.'"

Melissa said Kim's look was "unattainable" and she didn't want her daughters to think they could look like Kim.

"I was a mom, looking at a woman who has this unattainable look to her and just said, 'I don't want our young girls to look [at the photo] and say, I can be like that,' when really we can't.

"In the photo, she's wearing a corseted dress. Her waist was the size of her head. Her hips were obviously the normal size of her hips, and it looked like Jessica Rabbit. I'm not saying that as a diss."

Melissa, 36, defended her statement, saying others shared her sentiments.

"I'm clearly not the only person who noticed how abnormally small [her waist] was. She even had to point out a video of everything that was underneath it."

Kim, 38, and her sisters - Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie and Kendall, and mom Kris - are well known for their reliance on plastic surgery that completely altered their looks.

  • MJF

    Kim K has a clear case of body dysmorphia. Yes I diagnosed her myself but in my opinion she does.

  • bemetoo

    If only that was a floor length dress on a taller woman ????

  • Coy little wink

    I ain't got time for these fake azz hoes...

  • Guest

    She is right. Also, what is the deal with Kyle Richards saying she thanks The Kardashians and J-lo for being the ones to influence her daughters not to dislike their bodies and want to be super skinny. Hmm... I guess black women have been hiding their curves. Rolls eyes.

  • hi-liter

    The lady told no lies. My prob with the Kardashian’s is that they lie about everything. Kim went on a whole show (Dr. Oz) to try and convince the masses her ass wasn’t fake. Yeah, no implants maybe, but indeed fat transfers. Same for Kylie.

    We can go and pull up pics of both with Asses flatter than a Ho-Cakes, but they want black women to believe that you have to be a Kardashian to have ALL that ASS and No Stomach Naturally. It’s BULLSHIT.

  • xenaD

    All I kno is that Kim looks like her p stinks! ?? also, who’s her surgeon? Even tho I’m sure she workouts to maintain her figure and stuff... but sis has definitely gotten a head start with the hot knife on that table ????

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Bish you wanted to be relevant. Yall hate kim so much but stay starring at her. Her waist looks obviously fake whether its surgery or the dress or both you aint saying nothing amazing. I dont want my daughter looking for dyck on tv either and you look like you pop percocet in your wine while your kids watch youtube. Bye

  • Bossy704

    The theme was camp and Kim looks like a living doll. Caramel Ice. She wasn't going for realistic.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile ... cut and dry !!!!!!

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Fawk em both. ??

  • Bee jaay Cee

    like one comedian so much plastic on her body, she could throw a Tupperware party,

  • ohwell

    I love those blue boots Kim K have on.

  • Tinytoon

    Yes! Kylie was a plain #2 pencil 4 years but now she have curves. Kim's whole body went through a lot of plastic surgery, thanks to the Mattel company where she copied Barbie's figure from.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    This looks like white folks business...

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Lady, Kim aint the chick you need to worry about your children emulating! Get your children OFF of social media, teach them self worth and to be Leaders and NOT followers! Then you SHOULD have nothing to worry about because you have done ALL you can do as a parent to SHOW them the right path.. It is out of your hands what they do with the info you taught them???

  • luVn_liFe…

    dead AF!, right

  • Soda

    Looks like the sleeves were cut off a jacket and she put them on over her shoes. ?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Lolololol !

  • luVn_liFe…


  • Jordan’s Memory

    She told no lies! Kim doesn't even look human anymore she looks like a blow up doll or something. The way she stares looks robotic.

  • hi-liter

    I mean, I’ll give the “Attorney“ this much, that dress BAD....I like the color and the crystals on the dress simulating dripping water ? ?.....and it does look good on her FAKE Body.

  • teather

    Kylie is the one who truly grew up in all this mess. She has a distorted view of reality and is very shallow inside. Her BD Strayvis is a giving man, while she thinks ppl should help themselves. He can't stand that attitude, which is why he cheats on her. She's too shallow.

  • CaramelDrop

    ? your azzisHELL ?

  • teather

    It's no opinion, MJF. NOBODY does that sh*t to their bodies and can't see that your body is distorted. The fact that she keeps having surgery further confirms this.

    Her dress is stunning! That’s all o e got.

  • Trace da Ace

    welp....she told NO LIES...hell Kim is one on these "beauty is pain" type...and no shade...but if you would risk being in constant pain....possibly shifting your organs....well I do not condone.

  • Trace da Ace


  • Let them eat cake

    kim is looking like the joker and she used to look very clean before she got with kanye. now she looks like she flicks her toes and eats her toe jam.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Giggles I

  • MJF

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

  • BythegraceofGodIcanexplain

    See... Lol

  • Trace da Ace

    chile....Kylie got her WHOLE body done....face especially....

  • stav

    This racist society wants to give everyone the credit except the women that society is horribly trying to imitate... the black woman. These whorres that are being talked about are so insecure because they love black peen, they think they need the physiques and style of black women for black men to truly be interested , they are pitiful ..feel sorry for the next generation!

  • Yoni7

    Kim's dress puts me in the mind of the aftermath of a used condom coming out of a girl on her (last) "light day".
    AND I would wear it.

  • Fire & Ice

    Kim has body dysmorphia!

  • TriniHarlem

    I wish I had a genie to grant me three wishes because I promise you this whole family will be GONE. Good fckn grief. Oxygen picked up her show which was the reason behind her "freeing" prisoners. Give me fckn free fck us me free

  • BythegraceofGodIcanexplain

    DEAD... From cringing.

  • Cliffpetty

    Can you imagine how uncomfortable she was?

  • Blak

  • ?? Kari ?????????

  • Psychic Lulu

    ?You know what...??

  • Scorpio

    I didn't see anything original about it. She always looks like this.

  • T Willis

    They don’t identify with black ppl. Just like there were probably plenty of non-blacks breaking barriers but most black ppl didn’t or wouldn’t care until it happened to a black person ?????. It’s not shade - it’s just not relatable to them. Meanwhile, both JLO & KK found inspiration in *us* because black ppl are who they both identify most with ?????

  • Coffee1st

    Someone who said what they said and ain't taking it back just because they're confronted about it.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Sahara aka Her Dryness doesn’t look dehydrated in this dress *find the positive right*????? Chile Phuck Kim and that dry snatch ??

  • Topic Influencer

    Why they fukkin with Melissa? She said what she said, and what she said, is what HUNDREDS of other folks have said about Kim. Like wtf? Hone in on one person. And its dumb to me.

  • Topic Influencer

    And really truth be told, their 90 yo matriarch was the best looking fam member at that function the other night. Kris showed up with her gay ass bf and stole the show.

  • Floriduhh Evans

    Kim's wig also looks unnatural...

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??


  • Marlika

    Where’s the lie? Everything about Kim is unnatural.??????

  • Desi

    Kim's lacefronts are the best!!!

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD
  • Dori Day

    The plastic surgery messed her body up. The more they get criticized about their looks the more surgery they get.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    ? so you’re saying he’s the only one in the fam with real hips and azz Dub?. Let me find the pics Chile. I know Kris’ face has been pulled tighter and he was showcasing his baby making hips

  • Junkanoo

    You cant even tell the truth these days without getting attacked what strange times.

  • MsPam

    Kanye has the nerve to be wearing a shirt with the word Africa with a white woman. I can’t make this sizz up.

  • oshh16

    Funny enough doc Oz was on Wendy today stating again how unhealthy corsets are. How removing the lower ribs puts spleen and liver at risk.

  • Yoni7

    Right. LOL

  • ShWa

    She said what she said....periodt.LOL.

  • Monday

    I saw the video where Kim KW had to wear a corset to shrink her ribcage to the point of not even be able to sit down on her private bus to be able to fit in a centipede dress. If she is happy with it then let her be ?

  • ATL White Guy

    Jordyn Woods looks better than these Kartrashians could ever hope to look. She has what comes natural, the Kartrashians have what comes via a surgeon's scalpel.

  • Yoni7

    White people live on the continent of Africa too. They seem to mostly colonize South Africa, but I'm sure they've colonized other countries in Africa as well.

  • Topic Influencer

    Baby Kris looks GOODT and I dont like them but credit where its DUE.

  • Raquel

    That is her clone. Clones can be manipulated in such a way. lol

    I'm tide of them just like I'm tide of T.I, Beyawnce, and her big lipped hubby.

  • Topic Influencer

    The gal Adam Levine is married to comes to mind. She is from next door to South Africa. Namibia. And Trump down sinder looking daughter was dating a white I wanna say Kenyan? You right they is there.

  • millz

    I see no lies???? Glad she’s not backtracking

  • Ms..N

    Eww!! LMAO

  • Yoni7
  • Bashi22

    Speak on it Mellisa call out the fraud.

  • Yup, I said it

    Like Trump said, " Kim does not have a good body"

  • Renee26

    Those aren't her natural hips either...her waist is unrealistic like Barbie's used to be... Matel changed the body structure to change the unrealistic views of young girls... Nothing wrong with what she said cause these girls need to know what real bodies look like.

  • Tinytoon

    Wide hips Corey, dude have major birthing hips.?

  • Applebootay

    Not only is it unrealistic it doesn't look good. She looks like a butt and hip implant surgery gone wrong...and Ye know he don't like that...if that boy were in his right mind...nevermind

  • DeepThinker

    I’m glad a WW said it if it was a BW would be accused hating and jealousy

  • HoneyHitchcock

    Melissa didn’t say anything wrong.

  • Andrea Williams

    Girl.......Great minds think alike. I have been saying for the longest that her waist and hips look like the way that they put a Barbie doll together. It looks unnatural. But anytime anyone points out the obvious, you are labeled as jealous. Wendy Williams asked Melissa Rycroft if she was jealous when she talked about it on hot topics. Lol, to my shame I yelled at Wendy with why the hell does she have to be jealous for telling the truth? They need to stop acting like "Surgery Kim" is what real women should aspire to be. Truth be told, not many women have the funds to buy all of that even if they wanted to.

  • Brown & Proud

    I laugh everytime I see Kim, she looks idiotic at this point in her life. Anyone that looks up to that pile of plastic definitely has an extra chromosome.

  • Renee26

    Even if I could afford it I wouldn't want THAT look... I'd seek natural looking proportions and not risk my health by squeezing my internal organs together

  • Mona Lisa

    It definitely looks like she had a couple of ribs removed.

  • Karen Brady

    And the lie is where???........

  • Karen Brady


  • Kylla Williams

    sooo what! whats the problem when we have men going around demanding to be called women, using women bathrooms. letting little children take hormones and believe that they can live a realistic life as the opposite sex. ugh its stupid post like this that irk me cuz its sooooo hypocritical. like theyre the only ones with fake bodies. beyonce been rocking one for years!

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Yes she does

  • Lovers & Friends

    Look this is not about transpeople or Beyonce. You have a pic of a trans woman on your profile what is the obsession?

  • DeepThinker

    It’s also the result of multiple procedures. Those fat injections do not stay put so she has to keep inflating to keep the look. All that money to look like that. Looks even weirder when she sits.

  • Lady_Elle

    I agree with Melissa!
    A great deal of Kim's body has been altered surgically.
    She looks FAKE!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Kim looks like a human ROBOT made by Matell!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Fake AFCKKKK!

  • Logan Roberts

    Kim is shaped like an ant.

  • Andrea Williams

    You see the weirdness too? I get so tired of them praising a misshapen surgery hound when sister's have had natural looking hips and behind for ever yet they got no recognition. Now that the "other side" started doing it with surgery and injections, it's bring on the praise.

  • Miss Thang

    He loves it. He is a very sick person.

  • den

    Why is she defending her self? This w.h.o.r.e and ger sister,mom are ALL SUGICALLY ENHANCED.

  • bemetoo

    Yea but imagine it floor length on Charlize Theron (I don’t like her anymore)

  • Reenaface

    So now the koven is above criticism? It's her opinion and I wouldn't walk back shit. The people on Radar said that Kim's dressed look like a nutsack and a butthole. People are entitled to their opinions.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Shut up

  • 2gr8ful

    I agree with her, young girls should not be looking at her body as something natural-born end of story.

  • SG

    She said what she said. And she’s right!! *shrug*

  • Wayup!

    not to mention...her front... looks like the back...?

  • Shira Harding-James

    She’s right

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    You shut up ashy
    Witcho fugly ass
    Go wash your twat before you come for me.
    Dumb dumb

  • Cliffpetty

    Kim going to look a mess at 50. Hell its hard for some women to age in general, imagine when your whole career is built on looks. Realize everyday Kylie wakes up knowing she ugly as hell too. Khloe has no hope. Rest of them are good.

  • Cliffpetty

    Yeah right...i guarantee you Kanye and T brokered a deal. She probably giving good good to all the dignitaries that come to visit.

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Skinny ass thighs with a big ass ASS ?

  • PetiteButterScotch

    ?????wakes up knowing she ugly as hell. Kendall n Kourtney are the prettiest

  • Yup, I said it

    Maybe if the years have brought her some moisture. Otherwise, They don't want that dry puss she had in that sex tape.

  • SumthinSweeter


  • kylla williams

    I said what I said! Obviously u didn’t read my comment to understand. U read it it to reply!

  • Cliffpetty

    She looked a mess. How much you want to bet Kanye put that foolishness in her head? Bet you anything. Know what a trip? When Kim first came out she had a look all her own. She naturally had a shape and was far from average looking. Now there are women all over looking like Kim prototype but younger and willing to meet Kanye anywhere, even in the toilet taking a shit to f-him. I bet that lady more insecure than the most random chicks. Good luck with that. Can you imagine how many times a month Kylie needs a tune up? Hell, at least Kim was attractive before she started her descending to the depths of hell. Poor Kylie started out looking like a canker sore. My god...don't get me started on Khloe. Like dressing up a monkey and then smearing concealer on the monkey face, with his big toe, hoping for the best!

  • Strappyheels


    Pretty people do not have their faces and bodies altered.

  • Jethro

    She's right, the broad looks a science experiment gone wrong.

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Exactly. Imagine getting praises for morphing into a whole different person bc before nobody cared ?

  • Malai

    If u watch a video of Kim being interviewed at the Met Gala, she can barely move.. she probably had ribs removed wit her thirsty ass

  • Kimocha

    Kim even said that she wasn't able to sit down in that dress and had to stand up the whole time... Even in the van that she rode in bc the dress was waayyy too tight!... Especially around the waist, Smdh!!!

  • The Last Word

    Really? Beyonce, Janet Jackson, and Halle Berry, have all been under the knife.
