Alyssa Milano Shut Down Breastfeeding In Public Critic Wendy Williams On Her Show
Alyssa Milano shut down another mother, who is not a fan of breastfeeding in public. Milano and Wendy Williams had a mini throwdown as they talked about breastfeeding with the actress threatening to “whip them out on the set,” and the TV host repeating that a woman should be more than just a mother adding that breasts have other purposes.
Alyssa Milano shut down Wendy Williams during a passionate exchange over breastfeeding. Last week, Alyssa Milano appeared on the Wendy Williams Show – which opened in a fun way with the pair talking about the actress’ short hair and cute dress.
The duo also talked about Milano’s two young children – Milo Thomas and Elizabella, but the conversation quickly turned to how do you get your body back after two pregnancies. Milano said she lost 50 pounds on her own by cutting carbs and sugar, and she has been exercising while confessing she felt no pressure to drop the baby weight – the actress shed the pounds to get back into the clothes she loves.
An eager Williams rapidly jumped in the so-called controversy surrounding Milano and countless celebrities like Gwen Stefani, Gisele Bundchen and Miranda Kerr, who often share pictures of themselves breastfeeding on Instagram.
Williams made a not-so-funny remark about Milano having too many breastfeeding photos, and added:
“I don’t need to see that.”
Milano told the TV personality that it is natural for a mother to nurse her baby and went on to ask, why are people happy to see Miley Cyrus‘ nipples but get upset over her Instagram pictures? Milano explained:
“Everyone’s fine with her nipples being out. I think people are more comfortable sexualizing breasts than relating them to what they were made for, which is feeding another human.”
Williams, who had a funny answer, said:
“Because I just don’t want to, I don’t see them like that, you breastfeed for few months and for the rest of your life they are fun bags.”
Milano made a bold statement by saying:
“You have to realize that all over the world … you’re the not normal. You’re lucky the baby’s not here, I’d whip ‘em out and feed him right on your show.”
Williams explained that she breastfed her son for two weeks, and said that it makes her uncomfortable.
In 2013, Alyssa Milano shut down production on the show Mistresses to breastfeed her son. She said at the time:
“Everyone had to be very patient with me when we filmed the pilot of the show because I was still breastfeeding. Every two hours they shut down production for 20 minutes and allowed me to pump, which was lovely … and odd.”
Milano has plans to breastfeed her children until they are six years old.
