‘Gossip with Celebitchy’ podcast #20: Why are people focusing on Meghan’s weight?

British Royals attend Trooping The Colour - The Queen's official birthday parade
I’m allergic to red meat and this is a quicker episode: Minutes 0 to 2
This is a shorter podcast than usual because it’s our second attempt at recording this week. The first time we talked it didn’t record. So we’re goofier than usual because we know we’re making the same jokes! I mention that I’m allergic to meat (red meat specifically, it’s called Alpha-gal allergy) after that tick bite last week. Here’s the twitter thread I mention. You can listen below!

Royals: Minutes 2 to 8:30
Duchess Meghan made her first post-baby event appearance at Trooping The Color last weekend. We were surprised that people were focusing on her weight because she just had a baby! Meghan and Harry were shoved to the back of the balcony behind other royals, which seemed odd to us. Kate and Meghan are getting along great, and as we’ve seen it’s the brothers, Harry and William, who are feuding. We haven’t seen Harry and William together in a long time and it looks like they’re avoiding each other. Duchess Kate is covering US Magazine with the title “Grace Under Pressure” about how she handled the rumors of her husband cheating. She didn’t say anything about it, which was smart. Kate and William visited a sheep farm together looking matchy and Kate later went to an addiction gala in a fit and flare white dress.

Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper broke up: Minutes 8:30 to 14
Chandra mentions that they promoted the breakup like it was a movie. We kept hearing that they were having problems and when the news of the breakup came it wasn’t a surprise. We wonder about Bradley’s relationships because he never seems to be in love. There are rumors that Lady Gaga is the reason why they broke up but that makes no sense to us. They’re not promoting anything and we don’t buy them as a couple.

Nicole Kidman takes her cats hiking: Minutes 14 to 15:45
Nicole Kidman has two long-haired fluffy cats, Snow and Ginger, whom she takes hiking with her in a little backpack made for small pets. She talks to them like they’re babies and has posted video of it to Instagram.

US Women’s Soccer team criticized for celebrating their wins: Minutes 15:45 to 19
The US Women’s Soccer Team celebrated after every goal when they beat the Thai team in The World Cup, and they were criticized for that. We find that sexist, especially because the US Women’s Soccer Team is fighting for recognition and suing US Soccer for gender discrimination.

User Feedback: Minutes 19 to 20
Thanks to Marshmallow on Twitter, LaUnica Angelina and Lila for your nice feedback! We missed you too.

Comments of the Week: Minutes 20 to 25
My comment of the week is from Giddy on the post about Trump tweeting he’d met with the Prince of “Whales.” Chandra’s comment of the week is from Other Renee on the post about Kendall Jenner never trying a Hershey’s kiss. She hates dark chocolate and I hate white chocolate and think it’s garbage. We also complain about people bragging about only eating dark chocolate.

Thanks for listening bitches! We’re on all major platforms. You can text us or leave a voicemail at 434-218-3219.

    Lol..She just had a baby. Sadly, this is a reflection of Insta-culture and “I just run around my kids” phenomenon. It also sh*t stirring for another Kate/Meghan competition.

    As for Bradley/Irina, I think he won the week. He with baby on Father’s Day and Irina with Stella Maxwell in lingerie in Milan streets. Not to mention that pap walk with suitcase, screamed spontaneous.

    • Corinne says:

      Take a look at today’s staged photos by Irina. Her and daughter dressed from head to toe in Burberry to play in the sand at the park. She will receive her Burberry paycheck in the next days.

  2. I'm With The Band says:

    She looks like a new mum. She looks beautiful, like new mum’s do. It’s a sad indictment on society when we criticise a mother for looking normal. I will never understand the pressure to “bounce back”, as though there’s something wrong with the way a woman looks after giving birth.

  3. Lunde says:

    Who is focussing on her weight? I didn’t see any comments about her weight at all in the British coverage unless you are talking about the DM comment section which everyone knows is populated by rabid trolls

  4. kellybean says:

    I also haven’t seen any headlines regarding her weight, but people will talk about her weight at some point because it’s what our society does.

  5. BlueSky says:

    Listening to you two argue about dark chocolate really made my Monday 😂

    I will admit I love dark chocolate. I get the Hershey’s special dark chocolate. It’s sweet enough but not too sweet. I also love dark chocolate almonds that I can get by the pound at The Fresh Market. Now that I am accustomed to dark chocolate, milk chocolate has become too sweet for me.

  6. RoyalBlue says:

    One item that seems lost from the sheep shearing event was William and Catherine had some alone time in a lovely room in the country after having tea. The story was somehow put out there to insinuate they spend time together but no one took the bait.

    • Lunde says:

      I thought that the stop was just for them to dry off/change clothes. The weather was dreadful. Afternoon tea is hardly a romantic dinner.

  7. Nicegirl says:

    People going on about Meghan’s weight are assfaces. Growing a human is hard work. Like, back TF OFF Megs!!! Geez

  8. Coji says:

    I think Meghan looks beautiful with a little more weight. I kind of wish she’d hang on to a few pounds just to piss people off.

  9. Elizabeth says:

    I was sorry to hear that you’ve developed an allergy to red meat – I’ve had the same thing sing the mid-90s. Hopefully, yours will go away.

    • Celebitchy says:

      Hi Elizabeth, I’m so sorry that happened to you too! Check the post on Rosario Dawson and Cory Booker, there is another reader who has this too.

  10. BeanieBean says:

    A friend of mind learned he was allergic to meat after eating a hamburger at a barbecue. Ended up in the hospital. I hope you learned about yours by something less drastic.

  11. Boodiba says:

    I’ve walked my cats for years. When I got my first Scottish Fold & still lived in NYC I’d walk him in east village parks all the time. Now I’m stuck on a hill, isolated in Portland but that’s another story.

  12. Malika says:

    With all the intense pressure that has been put on her in the past year, i am glad she is able to look after herself and not feel any pressure to ‘snap back’ to her original weight. She looks lovely and healthy, and can keep or lose the weight as and when she wants to.

  13. liriel says:

    I didn’t see the headlines about the weight as well. The thing is though – which is normal for 90% people – it’s hard to get back to previous shape even if you care about it. Diet, exercise – it’s not so quick, some people have it harder. My friend wanted to lose weight quickly but she couldn’t. Everyone is different.

  14. Mego says:

    I agree completely. It is a white confection but it is in no way chocolate. No cocoa powder no chocolate.
