Do you think Ashley provoked this? Are you team Ashley or team Candiace?
Candiace body shamed Ashley due to her involvement during their Williamsburg getaway, where Ashley wasn’t invited but still came for a few hours and informed Wendy about rumors circulating about her husband. Candiace believed that Ashley’s actions ruined her trip, leading her to engage in body shaming.
Fans came to Ashley’s defense on social media, expressing their disapproval of Candiace’s behavior. One user criticized Candiace for body shaming a woman who had just given birth, stating that it was a new low for her. Another fan mentioned that Candiace’s actions stemmed from jealousy towards Ashley’s growth as a wife and mother.
Yes, apart from Candiace, Ashley’s husband Michael also made a backhanded compliment about her weight. He mentioned that he is attracted to Ashley because she is not overweight. This added to the pressure Ashley was already facing with her hormones being all over the place after giving birth, and the fact that the other girls allowed Candiace to say these things without intervening was seen as disappointing.
