Ashley Graham Just Shaded Kendall Jenner with a Racy Burn
Graham shared her thoughts on Jenner's recent controversial comments on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
Kendall Jenner has a knack for landing top-shelf modeling gigs — and for landing smack in the middle of controversy. There was that time the in-demand model ticked off ballet dancers, there was the issue of the Kendall + Kylie "vintage" T-shirts, and then there was that soft-drink commercial we shall not speak of. And these days, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians sister just can't seem to live down some comments about other models that she made back in August. Now, Ashley Graham has some shade of her own for the KarJenner.
But first, a refresher: When speaking to Love Magazine, Jenner said, "Since the beginning we’ve been super selective about what shows I would do. I was never one of those girls who would do like 30 shows a season or whatever the f--- those girls do. More power to ‘em. But I had a million jobs, not only catwalks but everything else. The whole combination was very overwhelming and I started to freak out a little bit and needed to take a step back."
Later, the model took to Twitter to clarify her remarks. "I was misrepresented in a recent interview over the wknd & it’s important to clarify the meaning," she wrote in August. "It was intended to be entirely complimentary but unfortunately, my words were twisted & taken out of context. I want to be clear. The respect that I have for my peers is immeasurable!"
But it doesn't seem that all her industry peers feel the same way, and Andy Cohen has a front-row seat to all the shade. When Naomi Campbell appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in September, she had two simple words to let viewers know just how she feels about Jenner's remarks. And when it was Ashley Graham's turn to visit the Clubhouse on October 18, she had a little bit of shade up her sleeve as well.
Looking radiant in lime-green sparkles, the model said of Jenner's now infamous comment: "Well, lucky for her. Cuz I've never been ... That's so lucky. I mean, these t--s and a-- have just had to fight through, and break down barriers every day." Watch the feisty comment in the clip above, and keep scrolling to see what Campbell had to say.
