Back in April Yolanda Hadid got into a Twitter fight with actress and model Rebecca Romijn in defense of her daughter Gigi Hadid, her BFF Kendall Jenner, and all present day young models making a name for themselves on Social Media. Rebecca alleged that this was different than the modeling she did back in the day, and shaded this generation for it’s use of getting ahead via social media!
On Sunday night Rebecca appeared on WWHL with Andy Cohen, and of course her friend Andy asked about her past feud with Yolanda. While she reiterated that she “never talked smack” about Gigi or Kendall, Rebecca’s response definitely showed her sassy side. She previously apologized to the young models, but it’s clear she doesn’t feel that bad about the situation.
Once Yolanda got involved Rebecca was over it, and she proceeded to tell Andy how she really felt! “I don’t even know why she got involved. I was like, ‘Oh, are we bringing our mommies in now? Should I get my mom?’ thought that it was really none of her business,” Rebecca insisted.
Rebecca tried to clarify that she wasn’t talking about today’s models, but the concept of social media in general. “I was commenting about models in social media. Fashion in general should not be followers; fashion in general should be leading the way. And somehow these names got thrown into the mix. I was never calling anyone out, but when Yolanda got involved, I was like, ‘What? Why the mom now? Why the mom,‘” Rebecca explained.
As a housewives fan though, Rebecca admitted, “it felt pretty good” to have her “first Twitter war” with former RHOBH star Yolanda Hadid! “When I was a kid, I loved Yolanda as a model. She used to be in my mom’s catalogues when I was growing up. I was totally aware of Yolanda. She was a great model,” Rebecca said with a sarcastic tone.
Rebecca agreed with Andy that she served up “a little low-key shade” in her response about Yolanda’s age, and as much as I love Yolanda, I’ll admit that made me laugh! I didn’t know much about Rebecca but I really enjoyed her on WWHL with Andy, she was a blast and he was in awe of her; next time her cute hubby Jerry O’Connell needs to join!
