The actor posted a relatable response to an individual who introduced negativity to her remark part
Ok, everyone knows the foundations: citing an individual’s weight will not be a good suggestion until you’re that particular person’s healthcare supplier. And but, that doesn’t cease web trolls from feeling free to touch upon the social media of oldsters each well-known and never about their measurement, and Valerie Bertinelli, for one, isn’t right here for it.
The One Day At A Time actor responded publicly to a follower who commented on her weight on Instagram.
“If I could lose the weight and keep it off I would, but since I haven’t been successful with that my whole entire life, at 61, I’m still dealing with it.”
“Where’s the compassion?” she added. “Not f—ing helpful.”
Alongside the video, she posted: “aren’t we tired of body shaming women yet?! smh. I was going to delete my stories because it’s a little embarrassing and scary to be so vulnerable. But then I realized it was hitting it a ‘good’ nerve with so many of you who were so sweet to dm and share your same vulnerability and struggles. We all could use a little more kindness and patience and grace, because we just never know what someone else is going through. So here it is. Not deleting. Owning it.”
Bertinelli’s son Wolfgang commented on his mama’s submit, writing, “you’re perfect the way you are, Ma. I love you. (also for no particular reason, what was that fuckers @ so I can harass them with memes?)”
Singer Michelle Branch posted in help, writing, “You’re so beautiful and such an inspiration. I’ve been on the receiving end of comments like these so many times. Hell, half my life! It fucking hurts. Thank you for being vulnerable and authentic and always leading with such heart.”
The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond wrote, “This video is everything. Beautiful Valerie, you inspire, you encourage, and you make people feel like everything is good and right. You have done this your whole life. You win.”
RuPaul’s Drag Race star Pandora Boxx commented on the Hot In Cleveland star’s Facebook submit on the matter.
“I’m glad you kept this up. It’s raw and emotional and it will help a lot of people. I’ve learned that all some people have in their lives are the comment section. Pay them no mind,” Boxx wrote. “They aren’t happy people. They just want to bring other people down to where they are. You are a wonderful beacon of light. Keep shining!”
One Twitter consumer wasn’t having it.

That video from Valerie Bertinelli is freaking superb. Brava her. Also, each time you fat-shame somebody, it blows again onto individuals who aren’t celebrities, sends teenagers into cycles of binge consuming and purging, and appears like an enormous slap within the face to people already struggling.

Another posted in appreciation of Bertinelli’s openness. “That video from Valerie Bertinelli is freaking amazing. Brava her,” the submit reads. “Also, every time you fat-shame someone, it blows back onto people who aren’t celebrities, sends teens into cycles of binge eating and purging, and feels like a big slap in the face to folks already struggling.”
