Former Sports Illustrated Model Cheryl Tiegs Is Hatin’ On Ashley Graham

Old azz ex-swimsuit model Cheryl Tiegs doesn’t think that thicky-thickums model Ashley Graham is a healthy woman. The 68-year-old told E! News that we really need to stop celebrating women like Ashley

The magazine released three different covers for its annual Swimsuit Issue, featuring Ronda Rousey, Ashley Graham and Hailey Clauson. “It’s a nod to female empowerment,” a source told E! News of the publication’s decision to change up its routine.

But Tiegs, who has been featured on Sports Illustrated’s covers multiple times, doesn’t agree with the magazine’s choice to feature Graham. Tiegs opened up to E! News Wednesday at the 13th Annual Global Green USA Pre-Oscar Party and said she felt the magazine was promoting an unhealthy lifestyle by featuring her.

“I don’t like that we’re talking about full-figured women because it’s glamorizing them because your waist should be smaller than 35 [inches]. That’s what Dr. Oz said, and I’m sticking to it,” she explained. “No, I don’t think it’s healthy. Her face is beautiful. Beautiful. But I don’t think it’s healthy in the long run.”

Do you think that the “glamorizing” of “full-figured women” will lead to the downfall of public health?
