Bye, Body-Shamers! Katie Maloney’s Best Quotes Defending Her Shape and Style


Katie Maloney is a force you don’t want to mess with. The Vanderpump Rules star isn’t afraid to stand up to her haters, who have body-shamed her in the past.

Maloney has been candid about gaining weight since she first appeared on the Bravo hit when she was in her 20s.

“[My husband] Tom [Schwartz] would tell me not to read it and that the comments don’t matter but it’s just not me to ignore it,” she once told DuJour magazine. “People tend to be insensitive about the issues and dehumanize us when they attack us on social media. It can be so rotten and toxic sometimes.”

During a February 2018 episode of the series, the former waitress was body-shamed by Lisa Vanderpump’s designer, Kevin Lee. “You were much thinner than this … you have to work on it, seriously, I’m telling you as a friend,” Lee told Maloney.

“It was very uncomfortable. … I had a hard time processing what he was saying to me. I literally thought he told me I looked good and then he kept going,” Maloney told Us Weekly exclusively in March 2018. “I just still think don’t ever say anything like that to someone. If you’re a decent person, you don’t have to apologize for a simple thing like that.”

The following season, Maloney’s costar James Kennedy called her “fat” during a heated argument at SUR’s pride event. As a result, the DJ was fired from his gig at the West Hollywood hotspot.

“I don’t want you to go back to questioning how beautiful you are. He’s an idiot,” Vanderpump told Maloney on a December 2018 episode.

“But he’s an idiot who gets away with speaking abusive language toward women, and I don’t tolerate that anymore,” she fired back. “I don’t think it’s right that I should show up to work and have to subject myself to that kind of language. This has been a home — a family — for me for almost nine years. I am not willing to work in a place where this is tolerated.”

In February 2020, Maloney’s appearance made headlines again when her friends Stassi Schroeder and Brittany Cartwright stepped in to defend her look at an E! News Oscar brunch. Maloney, who wore an off-the-shoulder black blazer and gold skirt, shared one of the mean-spirited remarks in the comments section of an Instagram photo from the event.

“Everyone talking s—t on Katie’s amazingly gorge alternative Parisian-chic Carrie Bradshaw look can go shave their backs now,” Schroeder quipped.

Cartwright added, “She looks amazing!!! Idk what y’all are talking about what so ever! Her style is different and edgy and I love it!!! Bye, Body-Shamers!

Confidence Is Key

“I hadn’t been in a good place in my life with self-love,” Maloney told Us in February 2018 after Lee’s comments aired. “And I struggled with that for a long time and acceptance and confidence and positive body image and I finally was in a place where I felt healthy and I felt great. I had dealt with seeing that stuff on social media a lot and Kevin saying it to my face put a voice and a face to all of that, which was hard, but at the end of the day, and right after, Lisa kind of lifted me back up.”

Somebody to Love

The former SURver revealed in March 2019 that it took her three years to love herself after gaining weight.

 

“It took me 3 years. I was a very unhappy person. I took it out on everyone including myself. I was unlovable. I vowed to make changes. And I did,” she wrote via Instagram Stories at the time. “For the last 3 years I let MY BODY become a topic of conversation. I say ‘let’ because I didn’t have the courage or self love [to] argue it. FOR 3 YEARS. I’m not perfect. I know who I am. But I’m not a weak bitch.”

 

She added: “I am going to continue to grow and remind myself of my own strength. If that makes me a mean bitch in your eyes then so f–king be it! I’m remaining true.”

Standing Her Ground

Maloney wasn’t happy with Tom Sandoval during a March 2019 episode of Vanderpump Rules when he blamed her for getting James fired from SUR. “When someone hurts someone like that, you have no idea,” she said through tears. “I’m tired of people attacking my body. I’m tired! I’ve been dealing with that for years.”

“Next Level of Giving Zero F—ks👌🏻 best dinner with the best babes!” Maloney captioned a photo with Cartwright, Schroeder and Lala Kent in May 2019. “#bestbestbestbest #hotelcostes NOT A BABY. ITS JUST THE DRESS AND THE WAY IT PERFECTLY HANGS. But how cute will I be with a baby bump y’all!!!!!”

Clapping Back

Maloney marked her three-year wedding anniversary to Schwartz by shutting down pregnancy rumors — again.

 

“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. Pregnant women are not fat. They are pregnant. They are creating a life inside of them. Um, yes, I gained weight but like, whatever. People do that sometimes,“ Maloney told her Instagram followers in August 2019. “I’m just going to come clean, I just really f–king love baggy clothes. I love big T-shirts, I love big sweatshirts. It’s just like there’s nothing better and there’s not one person that’s going to disagree with me on that. And the only thing I’m hiding under my baggy clothes is a really fire body.”

Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile

In an October 2019 video with Schroeder, Maloney looked back on her past fashion choices. “You know, a lot of people give me s–t, but they don’t get my style,” she quipped at the time.
