Taking the issue to media network, on February 6, Katie opened up saying:
It was very uncomfortable. Obviously, I’m there working for Lisa at her event, we all wanted it to special and go really well for her and I don’t know Kevin … 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.
Clearing further, she added more information and said:
I was like ‘Wow, um, OK’ and I walked away and told Lisa and it kind of just, like, really set in with me because I hadn’t been in a good place in my life with self-love. 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.
According to the reports, Katie visited Vanderpump’s designer at a party and they had a discussion where the designer went on further body shaming the actress.
Kevin told Malony,
You were much thinner than this … you have to work on it, seriously, I’m telling you as a friend,
In talks with the mediaKatie'ss husband, Tom Schwartz, who was present on the scene said:
It was way out of line but I think he probably was just being sassy and he regretted it and he was really nice following up … sent a nice letter,
To which Katie added:
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.
