11 Times Celebs Body-Shamed Other Celebs To Their Faces

This post contains discussions of body image issues.

A lot of times, people on TikTok highlight how inappropriate some journalists and reporters are with celebs. But it got me thinking about how many times celebrities themselves have been guilty of body-shaming other celebs — to their face!

Here are 11 times that happened:

1. When Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran said this to Whoopi Goldberg:

"When you get finished with those jeans and decide you don't like them, give them to me — and I'm gonna make two pairs," Barbara said. Whoopi looked visibly upset.

Barbara soon after apologized:

Love ya Whoopi 💙 #TheView pic.twitter.com/GX6l7HdTSo

Mariah opened up about this moment years later in 2018 and revealed that Joan made her feel "horrible":

3.When Joan Rivers said this to Oprah:

If she was truly concerned about Whitney, she shouldn't have brought it up in this setting.


5.When Howard Stern said this to Anna Nicole Smith:
