The ‘Project Runway All-Stars’ host may be confident in defending herself from weight haters, but after comedian Jay Mohr’s public fat-shaming diss and subsequent apology, Alyssa Milano still feels that she needs to lose an extra 10 pounds of baby weight.
Alyssa Milano seemed like the queen of comebacks when comedian and Ghost Whisperer star Jay Mohr rudely commented on how her post-baby body could use some work after she had son Milo two years ago. She was actually so polite about it, that Jay even later apologized about his public attack towards her “gut,” — but it seems like the damage was already done, because she revealed she wants to lose 10 pounds.
Alyssa Milano: Baby Weight-Loss Goal Of 10 Lbs After Mean Jay Mohr Fat Diss
Jay Mohr realized the error of his words, especially when Alyssa expressed that she was “hurt” over his harsh comments, but unfortunately you can’t just un-say mean comments.
“I was affected by it and I wanted to remind him that I’m a human being and that this hurts,” she told Us of his fat-shaming statements.
“When held up to the light of how beautiful Alyssa Milano is, it [his comment] would have been funny given that she is the size of a thimble. It wasn’t funny,” Jay later explained on his blog.
Even after the public apology, Jay’s words were not lost on Alyssa and sadly, she took them to heart.
“I gained 55 pounds when I was pregnant, I still have 10 more to lose,” she explained to Extra‘s Mario Lopez. We think she looks absolutely fantastic, and we hope Jay’s comments don’t cause her insecurity.

Even though her tweet is funny and light-hearted, using the hashtag “pass the cookies,” she clearly took Jay’s comments as the truth.
