Olivia Newton-John’s daughter: ‘Having big breasts does not make you stupid’

wenn22757313

Chloe Lattanzi, 30, is the only daughter of Olivia Newton-John and her first husband Matt Lattanzi. Chloe is a singer and actress who has accompanied her mom on tour multiple times. She also has a banging body and proudly displays it on her Instagram. Chloe struggled with anorexia for many years in her youth. She was sent to rehab at age 18 to seek treatment and unfortunately had to do so in the public eye. Chloe has had extensive plastic surgery that changed her appearance a great deal. In 2013, she returned to rehab for drugs and alcohol but currently says she is maintaining her sobriety. She has been engaged to fitness trainer James Driscoll for four years and credits him with helping her maintain the confidence she needs to battle her addictions.

So this should be a wonderful tale of overcoming demons, right? No. A couple of days ago, Chloe posted this:

I want to swim forever

Since the Internet can’t seem to function without tearing someone down, some commenters decided to go after her intelligence. Why? Because she has big boobs. I wish I was making that logic up.

Olivia Newton-John’s daughter isn’t afraid to stand up to internet trolls.

Chloe Lattanzi faced major criticism on Thursday when she posted a picture on Instagram of her wearing a cleavage-baring hot pink bikini in a swimming pool.

After many commenters apparently claimed that the size of her bustline must somehow be related to the size of her brain (their comments have since been deleted), Lattanzi, 30, took to Instagram to shut down the haters.

“Being unashamed of your feminine form makes you strong. It takes strength to accept and love yourself,” she wrote. “This is message is for every woman who has ever been called stupid or a bimbo for having confidence and for loving your body. Having big breasts does not make you stupid. It’s Calling people stupid for having big breasts that makes you ignorant. I love you all. I celebrate the sexy free confident woman.”

As the article says, most of the negative comments have been deleted so it’s a little difficult to take the commenters to task without knowing exactly what they said. Sadly, I don’t doubt for a minute that they made these ludicrous conclusions. Chloe is an adult in the entertainment industry from a family of celebrities. She has an incredible body and she likes to show it off on social media – what am I missing? What is she doing that is so offensive? I don’t know what upsets me more – the archaic assumption that an attractive woman must be dumb or an attack on a recovered anorexic with the confidence to display her figure.

At least has a supportive mother and fiancé to lean on when the Internet decides to display its stupid. And why is no one commenting on that pool? It’s gorgeous! The more I look at it, the more enchanted I become by its beauty. I bet that pool is stupid.

    I sat on the beach reading (when I was about 19) and when going home I passed a group of guys, one of whom I knew. I stopped to chat and after a while one of them said, “wow, when I saw you on the beach, I thought you were really dumb.” I asked why, he had no idea.

  2. HH says:

    Good for her! I do hope that she’s done with plastic surgery, though. She looks great and you don’t want to trade one addiction for another

    • Flowerchild says:

      You think so??? She looks like a plastic doll to me, her face doesn’t even look like it moves.

      • Naddie says:

        Man, in hopes she won’t read this, but I agree with you. She looks terrible.

      • Naddie says:

        And now I’m feeling like a jerk and I hope the mods wipe away my previous comment. :(

      • amilu says:

        I’m with you, Flowerchild. In some photos she looks not unlike Pete Burns (at his prettiest).

        It’s sad that she didn’t have the “strength to accept and love” herself before she altered her face and body. Through all her struggles, she was always a pretty girl.

      • pinetree13 says:

        Yeah I agree…way too far. Very sad, she must be very insecure. Though overly ‘done’ looking she’s still a very pretty girl. Lovely greenish-blue eyes. There’s a good chance the ‘surprised-frozen’ look of the last two photos will likely settle down with time.

      • Redgrl says:

        She was so pretty as a teen – obviously some sort of body image issues now – she looks frighteningly plastic…not good looks.

    • delorb says:

      If she’s undergone something major in the past, then it stands to reason she’ll do something else in the future. Her body says 20-something, but her face doesn’t.

  3. Zip says:

    Getting fake big breasts is quite stupid, though.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      It is? Why?

      • Bettyrose says:

        IDK, it seems like it would be physically uncomfortable, attract the wrong kind of attention, and make it difficult to buy clothes.

      • Zip says:

        Bettyrose got it right.

      • Adele Dazeem says:

        The repeated surgeries every 10-15 years over a lifetime would stress me out too. Not to mention pregnancy….when your milk comes in (or even when you’re heavily pregnant) those puppies are like big bags of pain…I can only imagine w implants in there. Shudder.

      • serious says:

        I do tend to equate getting giant funbags by choice as being a bit stupid, as the owner of natural DD’s……why would you effing pay for them? Just wearing a nanna like cardigan can look super sexual. I spend too much time and effort buying boring clothes that will contain the puppies. Plus I hate how the fake ones dont need a bra. Its cheating not needing supprt. Rant over.

      • Dani says:

        Someone like me, who has had A cups their entire life, even after having a child, get big fake breasts for our own self confidence and reassurance. We don’t do it for other people’s attention/validation. We do it for ourselves. Some women love their tiny breast and some don’t. No reason to judge just because it’s not for you. No reason to call it stupid, either. To each their own.

      • HH says:

        I think because associate fake breasts with the Pam Anderson look, we assume it seems awful. That’s really when plastic surgery exploded. However, looking at examples like Kelly Rowland, Taylor Swift, and Kaley Cuoco, I can definitely see why one would want something bigger (yet still fits your frame). I fluctuate between a C/D cup, and couldn’t imagine wanting to be any bigger.

      • Chetta B. says:

        Huge comical implants look silly and people don’t tend to take you seriously is why. And then showcasing them in all photos when everyone knows they’re fakers? Eh.

      • Bettyrose says:

        Yes, agency is the issue here, and IMO eating disorders and extreme cosmetic surgery demonstrate a lack of agency. Men rarely take extreme measures to appeal to the female gaze, so it’s disingenuous to suggest that women who cater to the male gaze to this degree have agency over their own bodies, when the psychology of low self-esteem is far more complex than that.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Um…because her whole platform about ““Being unashamed of your feminine form makes you strong. It takes strength to accept and love yourself,” she wrote. “This is message is for every woman who has ever been called stupid or a bimbo for having confidence and for loving your body. Having big breasts does not make you stupid. It’s Calling people stupid for having big breasts that makes you ignorant. I love you all. I celebrate the sexy free confident woman” is mute.

        She is addicted to plastic surgery. Look up her before and after photos to see how many times this young woman has gone under the knife and it sure was not because she was proud of her body, her feminine form. She did not accept or love herself. She is not confident either. Not even now with all the “additions”. She is uber insecure and puts all her eggs in one bucket – her body. She is full of sh!t and needs to be called on THAT. I could not care less that she has large breasts but don’t even try to claim you’re natural, you love your body, accept yourself, etc. Biggest load of hypocrisy I’ve read….today.

      • LoveIsBlynd says:

        I had a breast lift at age 43 and the doctor said the lift wouldn’t look right without implants. I did get implants and they were Stupid. Trust me. I was Stupid to get them. It was uncomfortable to do sports- I opted for “saline” which I thought were safer than silicone, and they were heavy annoying and…Stupid. Oddly they burst on their own and that’s another story. Now sans implants I feel lighter and smarter.

      • Redgrl says:

        Jennifer Justice – yes, exactly!

    • paranormalgirl says:

      OH look, we’ve entered the judgment zone!

      • pf says:

        I don’t think it’s judgement as much as a sad reflection on the society we live in. As people continue to enhance their looks with fake boobs and fake lips, it shows that people are becoming more and more superficial and stupid not giving a shit about what’s inside their heads. Body over brain apparently.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        It’s judgment. You can sugarcoat it any way you want, but calling someone stupid because of the choices they have made with their own bodies is judgment, plain and simple. But hey, whatever helps you sleep at night.

      • Kitten says:

        Yep. This is judgment, plain and simple. The issue is about a woman having agency over her body, making the right choices for HER and that being absolutely none of our business. This is no different than shaming a woman for getting an abortion.

        You don’t have to like it, but it’s a personal choice and as soon as you voice judgment about that, you’re perpetuating the idea that women’s bodies exist solely for the public’s gaze.

        If you don’t like breast implants, then don’t get them.
        *shrugs*

        Also, saying “body over brain” is EXACTLY the kind of judgment that she’s talking about. Just because a woman chooses to get implants, that doesn’t mean that she’s stupid and it doesn’t preclude her from expanding her mind or her exercising her intelligence.

      • pf says:

        “…you’re perpetuating the idea that women’s bodies exist solely for the public’s gaze.” Actually I’m not. I think the one who is perpetuating that idea is Chloe and Kylie and the like. They’re the ones who chose to get breast implants because they want that gaze. You can talk all you want about how it’s their choice and plastic surgery makes them feel better, but when it comes down to the real reason why they do it, they want the attention. Otherwise they would wear big baggy sweaters. They want people to look at their breasts, plain and simple. Maybe I am judging them, but they asked for that judgment the moment they bought into society’s obsession with made-up gender norms (female = pink and boobs and shopping, male = blue and big muscles and fast cars). If Chloe wanted to be taken seriously, she wouldn’t be parading around in a bikini on Instagram.

      • Kitten says:

        Wow. You managed to slut-shame, body-shame and set the feminist movement back all in one comment. Congrats.

        It’s amazing that you have the ability to assess the motivations and inner-workings of a stranger simply by noting the fact that her breasts aren’t real. I’m pretty horrified to think that you likely pass this judgment on any woman whom you perceive to have fake breasts, even if she got them as part of reconstructive surgery after a mastectomy.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        pf: NO ONE asked for your judgment. And yeah, Kitten, she nailed the misogynistic trifecta with one post. Quite the accomplishment.

      • BTownGirl says:

        @pf Many, many, many women are getting the surgery to “get back what they lost” after weight loss/childbirth and breastfeeding/etc. There seems to be a misconception that everyone who has the surgery goes for the biggest size they can get, which is totally false.

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        It’s actually true PF, by saying that if a woman doesn’t present herself to the world in modest (or actually, baggy was the exact word you used, so you’re taking it to an extreme level of modesty where we’re not only supposed to cover our skin to avoid turning on da menz, but our shapes too) all or most of the time, she must be actively looking for male approval or desire, you ARE perpetuating the ideas that our bodies exist for the male gaze.”…They asked for that judgment the moment they bought into society’s obsession with made-up gender norms (female = pink and boobs and shopping, male = blue and big muscles and fast cars).” No, contrary to what conservatives, dudebros, and “radical” feminists believe, women do not ‘ask for’ your sexist, narrow-minded beliefs by breaking your list of ‘rules’ (that they never agreed to follow) about their bodies. You all just collectively feel entitled to volunteer them once a woman breaks one of your ‘rules’. So, that leaves women with few options: Either make sure we always follow your ‘rules’ to avoid the ignorance and the wrath, or just do what we’re going to do anyway and be ready to call out the sexism and ignorance. “If Chloe wanted to be taken seriously, she wouldn’t be parading around in a bikini on instagram.” A more honest quote would have been, “I’m not at a place in my feminism yet where I can take a woman seriously if she ever dresses or behaves in a way that doesn’t conform to my standard of modesty, because I still have a little bit of that virgin-whore complex where I divide women into the categories of ‘women who I take seriously and who don’t deserve the misogyny’ and ‘women I don’t take seriously and who do ask for the misogyny’ based on how modestly they do or don’t present themselves most of the time.”

      • Kelly says:

        pf you totally make a lot of sense, great comments!

      • Rosemary says:

        paranormalgirl, you hit the nail on the head. Usually people think I’m stupid if utter crap falls out of my mouth (which does happen occasionally). Otherwise, I haven’t had anyone tell me I’m stupid because of the size of my boobs.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      I just know she has suffered from major self esteem problems for many years. She possibly suffered from some sort of BDD. I know she has admitted to a past eating disorder and addiction issues.

      She has been having work done for years. It’s sad that she was never comfortable in her own skin. It seems like she may finally be there?

      Anyway, she kind of reminds me of Elizabeth Berkley in those pictures.

    • BTownGirl says:

      God, these judgy comments gross me out. My boyfriend is a plastic surgeon and I assure you, his patients are not stupid. Who the heck are you to judge people’s intelligence based on their outsides? As another person mentioned above, how do you know it’s not a reconstruction? Worry about your own choices. In my experience, people who spend their time judging others don’t like themselves very much at all/have some, errrrrr, jealousy issues. As for the comment about about having “repeated surgeries every 10-15 years”…I don’t know how many more times I have to say this, but unless there is a problem, you do not need surgery to fix it. My boyfriend has patients who have had the same set for 25+ years with zero issues.

      • Adele Dazeem says:

        No need to get hostile. I have honestly heard re-dos are required every 10-15 years. Chill.

      • BTownGirl says:

        No one’s hostile, I’m just saying that judging people based on something like this is ridiculous. It should bother everyone. As for the incorrect medical information that gets passed around, yes I find it eye-rolling, because people with no medical training repeat it as “facts” and evidence of what a bad idea this type of procedure is. Bottom line is, if an actual doctor is telling anyone this, they’re a little suspect, because no one in their right mind removes a perfectly good implant.

    • KatieD says:

      Not half as stupid as judging other womens’ personal choices when you know nothing about them and their reasons. Judgemental simpleton.

  4. boredblond says:

    But there is some irony (not stupidity) in advising women to accept themselves and be unashamed of their feminine form after surgically changing your form

    • tracking says:

      +1 Her mom is no stranger to plastic surgery either. I do think it must be hard for daughters of very famous, beautiful women though.

      • Matomedah says:

        +1 tracking. I agree that must be hard to always be judged and compared. My mother was much prettier than me in her day. I don’t really care, but I’m sure if people spent my life judging me on it, I’d feel differently.

      • Meredith says:

        Yeah, like Christie Brinkley’s daughter with Billy Joel, Alexa (I think that’s her name). She’s a cute girl with interesting features, but she definitely looks more like Billy Joel, which must be hard when your mom was literally a supermodel. IIRC she’s also struggled with some mental health issues and has had some plastic surgery. It sometimes makes me glad that I’m an average-looking person born into a family of average-looking people.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        And don’t tell me the reason she posted that particular photo isn’t purely because she likes how her floating boobs look in it. Put it out there for consumption and you’re going to get both supportive and judgy comments. What’s dumb is to think everybody’s pro-surgery and you’re only going to get comments that make you feel warm and fuzzy. I wouldn’t say anything mean on her instagram, but she is definitely a hypocrite trying to fight off the meanies with the “love your body” message. Pffffttt. Then walk it, don’t just talk it, because the message she’s sending to young women and teens is if you don’t have Barbie boobs, you’re not good enough.

      • holly hobby says:

        For Alexa it probably isn’t a self esteem booster when her sister ended up with the Brinkley genes too. Yeah so I can understand it.

      • Kitten says:

        “Then walk it, don’t just talk it, because the message she’s sending to young women and teens is if you don’t have Barbie boobs, you’re not good enough.”

        Ok but the fact that she has breast implants isn’t an indictment of women who don’t nor is it an endorsement or sales pitch for plastic surgery. Is she just supposed to wear baggy shirts and tent-like muumuus to hide her breasts for fear that young women might see her breasts and think “oh, I want those too!” ?
        I mean, are masses of young women really looking at Olivia Newton’s daughter’s IG anyway? I’d never even heard of her until now.

        If you want to criticize her for posting tons of seflies, that’s one thing, but I don’t understand the criticism of her choice to get breast implants. If you know anything about eating disorders, then you know that they wreak havoc on your body, particularly your breasts.
        Maybe after recovery she decided that she wanted to do something to motivate herself to STAY in recovery, to help her feel good about her body again.

        Who effin cares?

        Let me be clear: her choice of aesthetics is not mine. Hers is not an appearance that I aspire to and personally, I would not get breast implants. But that’s MY choice for MY body. I shouldn’t be judged or shamed for it and neither should she.

        I’m really curious as to how commenters here apply this judgment to women who get breast augmentation after giving birth. Is it ok in that case? What about a woman who has deformed breasts or different-sized breasts or gets a breast reduction? Do you shame them for their choices as well? Or is it only the ones who suffer from eating disorders because, you know, they’re obviously “vain” and “self-centered” or whatever other stigma you attach to EDs?

      • JenniferJustice says:

        I do not criticize her choice to get enhancements. I criticize her telling women to accept their bodies and love themselves. She obviously doesn’t. It is a hypocritical statement. I actually feel sorry for any celebrity spawn born to a beautiful parent but themselves born “homely” or not nearly as pretty as their mother or father. I’m sure the comparisons are frequent and nauseating. I’m sure she had plastic surgery (nose, lips, eyes, breasts, lipo, etc. – because there was a lot of surgeries) in an attempt to be pretty like her mom. I get that. I sympathize with that situation. I do not, however, agree with her self-denial. She feels good about herself NOW because she has completely changed her looks, but she didn’t feel good about herself to begin with or she wouldn’t have succumbed to the pressure, whether it be societal or self-imposed, to be Barbie. She’s lying.

      • Kitten says:

        “Being unashamed of your feminine form makes you strong. It takes strength to accept and love yourself. This is message is for every woman who has ever been called stupid or a bimbo for having confidence and for loving your body. Having big breasts does not make you stupid. It’s Calling people stupid for having big breasts that makes you ignorant. I love you all. I celebrate the sexy free confident woman.”

        I don’t detect any lies in that statement though?

        She didn’t say “My choice to get plastic surgery was made because I love and embrace my body” or some such nonsense. In fact, she didn’t address her surgical enhancements at all. It’s literally impossible for us to know how she feels about herself without knowing her on a personal level.
        Maybe her relationship with her fiancée is what has finally helped her to accept her body, maybe being in a place of recovery gave her the mental strength to finally stop hating the way she looks, and sure, maybe the surgery helped her to feel good about herself again.

        The point is that we don’t know.

        But what I DO know is that her having breast implants is not an invitation for people to make sweeping judgments about her as a person. It’s literally NO different than men who think that because a woman has fake breasts, that they are entitled to catcall her or comment on her body or to assume that she’s hypersexual because, you know, she “obviously wants the attention.”

        Look, I get burnt out on the imagery of surgically-enhanced women in the media too. I’m not sure if that’s the most accurate/attainable/helpful image of women that we should be putting out there–so I truly understand your frustration in that sense. But I still accept that each of those women made a personal choice about their bodies, each woman exercised agency over her body, and I certainly don’t assume to know exactly why they chose to physically alter themselves.

        But I also think that looking at a woman who has made surgical enhancements to her body and instantly coming to the conclusion that she’s insecure and hates herself just isn’t fair at all.

        Ultimately, she didn’t make some self-aggrandizing statement while hiding behind feminism nor did she react with a middle finger topless selfie. She just put out a personal message of “live and let live” in response to what was likely some pretty misogynistic tweets.
        I don’t think the angry judgmental comments are really warranted in response to what was a pretty innocent statement on her part, that’s all.

        But I still like you and support your right to a differing opinion, JenniferJustice. Agree to disagree on this one I guess. ;)

    • Adele Dazeem says:

      Yes. It’s this millennial version of feminism that worries me a bit. Then again, I know I’m old school. And well, old. Lol

    • Sarah says:

      @ bored blond : that is my point too. She “accepts” her feminine form after using surgery to go up several cup sizes? Okay, I hope she is feeling confident and self-accepting but it does seem ironic.

    • Suzy from Ontario says:

      boredblond – I agree. Accept yourself and love your body… after you’ve had it surgically altered to your specifications. Kind of hypocritical a message imo.

      • BTownGirl says:

        No, actually it’s not. You can love yourself just fine and still say, “Hey, I’d like to change x/y/z.” One of the biggest stereotypes women with breast implants have to combat is that they must have some kind of deep-seated self esteem issues. Personally, I had a rhinoplasty and I’ve never had poor self esteem – I just wanted the bump off my nose! You have no idea what goes on in someone else’s mind/heart and absolutely no right to judge anyone.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      I agree, Lady Gaga, is just another prime example.

  5. Carol says:

    I understand she has struggled with body image for a very long time. So I hope she is in a good place.

  6. One2 says:

    She looks like a 90′s pop star in the first picture. I’ve had people surprised that i was in collage and on the Deans list beacuse they assumed i was dumb beacuse if my chest. I never understood the correlation between breast size and intelligence. I wonder if the people who think that way realize how stupid they sound??

    • Norman Bates' Mother says:

      It’s probably the same rationalization as to why many people think that pretty women can’t be funny. Some less attractive comedians say that the only reason they are funny and clever is that they didn’t have the looks so they had to try to impress people in other ways. Going by that logic, many people probably think that large-chested girls were always in the center of boys’ attention and since girls only care about boys and boys only care about boobs, obviously, they would have spent their teen years on dating, doing their make-up and being shallow, so they didn’t have to impress anyone = they didn’t have time nor motivation for education.

    • Smokey says:

      Ah, what a smart and pretty good girl you are One2 *pats troll on the head and walks away*

      • One2 says:

        Hey Smokey, I don’t need a pat on the head and i’m not a troll.I was sharing an experince i had that related to the topic being discussed. This is the internet and we don’t know one another,so don’t assume anything about me. As i wouldn’t about you. You have a nice day though!

      • Sarah says:

        P.S. One2 : you may be smart but I think you were in “college”, not “collage”.

    • Smokey says:

      I don’t know what school you go to but if you’re actually on the Dean’s list (not Deans list) and you “wonder if the people who think that way realize how stupid they sound…” without realizing that thinking and speaking are different, combined with your difficulty with capitilazation and punctuation in English, then perhaps you are wrongly assuming that people think you’re dumb because of your chest size.

      • One2 says:

        Your right.

      • One2 says:

        Lol nope went to collage. Thanks for pointing it out, i was typing without checking my spelling. It happens! Damn you autocorrect for making me look dumb!! Lol

      • Azurea says:

        It’s also “you’re right,” a conjunction of “you” and “are,” not “your.”

      • KB says:

        One2 didn’t sound all that bright in her comment, but I love a good misspelled word (capitilazation, can’t blame that one on autocorrect) in a rant about spelling and grammar. Lol funny all around, good job you two!

      • Kitten says:

        Seriously? She innocently shared her opinion and you all jump on her to correct her spelling and accuse her of being a troll?

        Ugh.

      • isabelle says:

        Honestly, I had rather be trapped in a room full of Kardashians as one grammar know-it-all. Let her speak, let her have an opinion, let her write her opinion. This is an entertainment web site not a web site for English majors. True intelligence is allowing someone to have an opinion, write an opinion without you needing to correct the wording. Seriously, think about it.

    • One2 says:

      @Kitten it’s alright. Spelling and language aren’t my strong suit. I never said i was a genius,just sharing my point of view. I hope everyone has a good day!!☺

      • paranormalgirl says:

        You shouldn’t have been attacked for your opinion.

      • Naddie says:

        Everyone mispells sometimes. What if u were having a crazy headache, or a sight issue, or anything else at the moment? Don’t let it stop you from commenting here.

    • Cee says:

      This thread is too petty. Leave her alone. She thought to share her own experience with prejudice.

      • One2 says:

        You are really nice for sticking up for me but its alright. Let them have their opinons. Its a gossip website and it doesn’t change my original statement.

      • Cee says:

        @One2 – It’s just that this level of vitriol is uncommon in this gossip site. We all enjoy gossip (if not, why are we even here?) with a healthy dose of banter and skepticism but not an openly judgemental attack on a person for merely stating an opinion/experience related to the gossip subject.

  7. Jen43 says:

    She’s giving me Kim K with a little Alexa Joel. Like Alexa, it must be difficult to have a beautiful mother. Like Kim, if you are putting up an album of bikini photos, don’t get hurt when people’s comments aren’t giving you the kind of attention you are seeking.

    • KarenSmith says:

      Yes. This.

    • Adele Dazeem says:

      Bingo!

    • Azurea says:

      It seems she DOES want that kind of attention. She’s flamboyantly displaying her outsize breasts, which are not in proportion to her body. Then she falls back on a skewed feminist perspective to slam people who make chauvinistic comments. This is not her real, natural body for which she’s showing “acceptance.”

      • BTownGirl says:

        How do you know that? It is her “real” body – getting implants doesn’t mean someone is a fraud, can’t be proud of how they look and feel good about themselves. I actually think the size is fine and she looks great. Would you say that to someone who is naturally slim with a large bra size? Take me, I’m 5′ 1″ 108 lbs with a natural DD…should I be hiding in shame? Are people allowed to say whatever they want about how I look and I have to be okay with it? How would you or anyone else know for sure I haven’t had surgery just by looking at me? Everyone is allowed to feel good about how they look and expect basic respect from strangers, whether they’ve had surgery or not.

      • Azurea says:

        I’m also slim with close to DD, so I’m certainly not slamming her for her breast size or her brains.

      • BTownGirl says:

        Ummmm you do see that it would be ridiculous for either one of us to be calling anyone’s situation “outsize” then, don’t you? Are we “flamboyantly displaying” when we wear a bathing suit? Unless you go around feeling up every woman you suspect of having had surgery, you have no idea if they meet your standards for being allowed to show their bodies. Have you ever considered women who have had reconstructions or, like one of my cousins, were born with a chest wall deformity that is easily corrected with implants? No one gets to sit in judgment and decide who has to put up with rude behavior and who gets a pass based on surgery they may or may not have had.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      Yes, her problem was being the child of a beautiful celebrity. She couldn’t measure up to her mother’s beauty and she went over the edge trying to achieve it. I understand she probably felt ugly, but I still don’t like her message. She is the one trying so hard to look like a Baywatch babe. It’s really shallow and frankly, demeaning.

    • Otaku Fairy says:

      How about “If people start publicly spewing sexist stereotypes and somebody criticizes it, let’s not make excuses for the people being called out for their ignorant, sexist beliefs?” That one feels more productive.

  8. Snowpea says:

    It must be hideous to grow up in the public eye. I think about my teen years – acne, pumpkin head, puppy fat, chronic awkwardness – and the thought of that playing out for all the world to see fills me with horror.

    Chloe seems like a sweet girl and she should tell all the haterz to get f*cked.

    • mickey says:

      Over the years there were stories about her struggles with eating disorders and body image issues, also Olivia’s boyfriend disappeared off the face of the earth. Good luck to her pursuit of happiness. I hope that she finds peace and I hope that she is strong enough to take the abuse that is being thrown at her. Women get skewered in this world-i.e the inter webs. leave her and her great big boobs alone.

  9. Bettyrose says:

    I was a natural blonde growing up. I was bookish and wore glasses, but people still made weird snap judgments about my intelligence.

    • I Choose Me says:

      I always wondered how the whole blondes are dumb became a thing. Esp., since a lot of blondes are not blonde’s naturally. I mean how does hair colour, or boob size denote intelligence or lack thereof. I just don’t get it.

    • isabelle says:

      yeah…thinks its probably the blond stereotype versus a big boob stereotype.

  10. OhDear says:

    I hope she’s doing well.

    What she said seems so obvious, but I see it a lot with celebrity gossip that the women with the hourglass figures (or those who have either or both big boobs or butts) are often derided as stupid, while those without those features are more likely to be deemed as “nice,” “smart,” and “harmless” (compare Megan Fox and Kate Upton with Taylor Swift and Emma Watson)

  11. Margo S. says:

    It makes sense that she would get numerous surgeries. Her mom has had tons of procedures so it’s not shocking. Let her do what makes her happy.

  12. suzysunshine says:

    An abundance of plastic surgery does not make you a sexy, free, confident women. By all means, nip and show off the results all you want but don’t get upset and call it body shaming or slut shaming or trolling if you’re seeking public validation and then don’t like what you hear from the public.

    • Otaku Fairy says:

      “…but don’t get upset and call it body shaming or slut shaming or trolling if you’re seeking public validation and then don’t like what you hear from the public.”
      Something doesn’t magically become ‘not slut-shaming’ or ‘not body-shaming’ because it’s directed at someone who seeks attention instead of it being directed at the private girl on her way to the mall with her breasts hidden in a turtleneck. That’s not how sexism (or any other -ism or -phobia) works. If she had posted a photo of herself in a conservative, elegant, sparkling floor-length gown and a bejeweled cross around her neck, that would still be attention-seeking, but people wouldn’t be saying the kinds of comments she’s calling out aren’t ignorant, sexist stereotypes and they wouldn’t imply that she was wrong to criticize them.

  13. Mop top says:

    No, but being a fame whore does.

  14. MrsBPitt says:

    I feel bad that people made mean comments, but….c’mon, she must know, anytime a celeb (albeit, a minor celeb) or anyone for that matter, posts anything to the internet, let alone a bikini pic, there will be jerks out there who say horrible things…it is just a sad fact of the world we live in. I won’t say, she shouldn’t have posted the pic, but, she should have been prepared for all kinds of comments, good and bad. Glad she responded the way she did, though…

  15. GingerCrunch says:

    This topic, social media and people are making me feel a bit stabby, so I will just say how much I love rectangular swimming pools! Especially when they are surrounded by grass. So lovely!

    • BTownGirl says:

      Me too!! I work in design and anytime someone’s landscape plan has a rectangular pool with just grass around it….swoooooon! Double points if the edging is done in brick.

      • GingerCrunch says:

        That sounds lovely and very northeastern. Might have to run over to Pinterest and do a little search! Grass in the pool reminds me of my childhood and jeez am I glad I got off this post early in the day. As bad as I suspected it would be.

      • BTownGirl says:

        YES! I live in MA, so maybe that’s where my love for that look started ;) Check out Fancy Country Houses (my technical architectural term!) in England as well. You should see the abomination the previous owners of my house put in haha! Girl, a lot of the responses to this post just pain me too and I really wish I had just skipped straight to swimmin’ pools!

      • GingerCrunch says:

        Will do, BTown! Just got back from Europe, so I’m THERE. I do love that we started a sub-thread that’s unrelated! 😛
        Just googled ‘pools surrounded by grass’- JACKPOT

  16. Micki says:

    “…..being unashamed of your feminine form makes you strong.It takes strength to accept and love yourself.

    ….”Chloe has had extensive plastic surgery that changed her appearance a great deal.”….

    I get that she’s unashamed from her plastic surgery and loves herself (after it) and that makes her stronger.

  17. claire says:

    To me, the male equivalent of people like Chloe are the extreme steroided-up weird looking body builder men obsessed with looks and their bodies in the same way. No one thinks they’re geniuses either. Society in general is going to judge people who act like that, no matter your gender – especially if they’re out there making idiotic statements about body confidence.

  18. paranormalgirl says:

    I’m sad by all the judgmental comments aimed at Chloe.

    • Adele Dazeem says:

      I see your point, but I do think when you post public photos of yourself in bikinis, posing and clearly putting yourself out there….well, you are seeking feedback. And unfortunately, not all feedback will be positive.

    • detritus says:

      Me too. I wanted to say something mean about all the work, but she reminded me so much of Amanda Bynes. I don’t think she’s healthy and she’s obviously had struggles with her self image.

      I, personally, do not like breast implants that large. I, personally, do not like lip injections to that extreme. I, personally, feel they set a dangerous precedent on people with high levels of public exposure. BUT those are my personal feels and no reason to be harping on this recovering girl who seems to be living a fairly private life considering her parent’s fame.

      It does seem to be courting danger to post such photos of yourself on social media when you are a bit fragile, but maybe this is her reclaiming her body?

      • paranormalgirl says:

        I agree. I personally couldn’t enhance myself more than maybe a little nip and tuck (and maybe not even that, I seem to be aging OK at the moment) but I’m not going to judge someone else’s decisions. It’s her body and if she is happy and comfortable in it, then more power to her.

    • Kitten says:

      Could not agree with you more, paranormalgirl.
      This is a woman who has battled image issues and an ED. The comments here feel like a really callous and unnecessary pile-on. Gross.

  19. I Choose Me says:

    I’m with Hecate and GingerCrunch, that pool is lovely. Makes me want to dive in.

  20. meme says:

    Grew up in the public eye? I didn’t know ONJ had a daughter. That said, she looks like one of those Bravo housewives and is obviously thirsty. That outfit is heinous.

  21. Li says:

    All I noticed from the pictures was the metal roof on the house. We’re getting our roof done soon an I’m obsessed with them.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      Are you getting a metal roof? Our beach cottage has a metal roof and I am IN LOVE with it. The sound of the rain on that roof is amazing.

      • Li says:

        I am getting one. Unfortunately I’m in Southern California so if this drought continues I won’t get to enjoy that sound anytime soon.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        The durability of them is incredible. Ours has withstood several hurricanes, even with solar panels up there, too!

  22. CatJ says:

    I’d like to hear more of the story of finding Olivia’s former boyfriend, who was presumed dead….?

  23. mkyarwood says:

    That’s pretty strained body language from her, in that embrace her mother is giving her.

  24. Kitten says:

    I’d like to hear Otaku Fairy’s thoughts.

  25. KiddVicious says:

    I used to have the biggest crush on Matt Lattanzi.

    Chloe is looking much healthier now. And good for her for not letting the trolls bring her down.

  26. Ennie says:

    I remember reading about her image struggles back in the day when she was still younger. I think she was one of the first celebrities / children of celebrities that went and got plastic surgery openly and blatantly- kardashian style.
    The difference, for her I guess is that she made all that from an inner, real image problem, not because, like some reality “stars” they want to look a certain way to get money,’publicity and contracts.
    It was shocking back then to see how much this girl changed her face. She looked quite cute and very much like her dancer father, and her mom was still very famous around the time she was growing up. Good that she has found a balance, and hopefully she won’t keep messing with her looks anymore.

  27. Merritt says:

    I remember feeling bad for her when she was on MTV. She clearly was struggling with several issues. Her father seemed disconnected from reality, which didn’t seem helpful.

    • Adele Dazeem says:

      When was she on Mtv?? And with her dad? I need to watch more tv.
      (Words rarely uttered i know. Lol. But it’s true)

      • paranormalgirl says:

        she was on “Rock the Cradle.” It was a singing contest style show featuring children of musicians. Chloe was on it, as well as as Dee Snider’s son, MC Hammer’s daughter, Kenny Loggin’s son… Chloe came in 3rd.

  28. Malificent says:

    I was always the quiet book nerd with the really impressive set of frontal lobes. The girls had a social life all their own. Boys did usually know what to do when they discovered that they came attached to the rest of me….

  29. K37744 says:

    I have no soapbox to stand on, but when my 12 year-old daughter sees this girl ‘accept’ her body…it’s difficult for me to counteract that with what I, personally, consider acceptance.

    Luckily if she takes after her momma she’ll be flat-chested but own it like the rock star she is. :)

  30. lisa says:

    wow she’s had enough plastic surgery for the witness protection program! I’ve seen her on tv but not recently and wouldn’t recognize her.

    i hope she can has learned to love herself

  31. Gswiftblade says:

    I am so disappointed by the comments on here. I have struggled with an eating disorder for years, and mine began right around the same time Chloe was at her worst. I remember even in my warped mind thinking that she was too skinny and looked sick. I honestly thought the disorder would take her life.
    What she says about accepting her feminine form is very brave for a recovering anorexic. For most girls, the disorder begins as hormones take over and you begin developing hips and breasts. For her to now embrace the idea of having hips and breasts shows huge growth. Additionally, the years of being underweight may have affected her natural development, meaning that she really never developed breasts. So she had them done. Yeah, she may have gotten them a little big, but that’s not for anyone else to decide. If she’s loving her body I am so, so proud of her because she truly was on death’s doorstep.

    Rant Over

  32. teehee says:

    On the contrary: having big breasts, makes MEN really stupid.

  33. Naddie says:

    I don’t have big breasts but I’ve known many girls/women that do, and I can tell by my experience that it’s never the breast size alone. If the girl has a sexual outlook, people think she’s stupid (which is stupid and sexist by itself). I have an example in my own home: my sister has always been a nerd with big and lovely breasts, but no one’s ever doubted her intelligence, quite the opposite. At college, there was this girl who had a really big chest, and everyone thought she was stupid… It turned out that she really was, but her attitude towards her body was completely different from my sis.
    And oh, I’m not saying women are guilty for prejudice, I’m just stating how I perceive the issue.

  34. Caz says:

    The real issue is what Matt and Olivia were doing during Chloe’s formulative years. Chloe seems to still have no career direction, with other issues as well. Is there a plethora of famous/mega wealthy parents who check out of parenting their teens because they are focused on their own careers? Do they just give them $$$ without any guidance or nurturing?

  35. Jaded says:

    Well her mother struggled with anorexia and has had multiple plastic surgeries/botox/injectibles/whatever so it’s something that has been ingrained in her for a long time. When you’re brought up in that kind of celebrity/Hollywood lifestyle it has an insidious effect that is very deep-rooted. No wonder the poor woman has had her issues being raised in that kind of superficial atmosphere where you’re judged on nothing more than how you look.

  36. OGGY says:

    No judgement from me.

  37. emma says:

    I’m so happy that she’s doing well and looking healthy. I remember those anorexic pictures, so sad.
