Real Housewives Of Nairobi Star Susan Kaitanny Responds To People Calling Her Skinny
Real Housewives of Nairobi star Susan Kaittany has clapped back at critics denigrating her for her skinny physique. The businesswoman and model came clean on how she has been body shamed a couple of times and forced to take in whatever people said about her.
She wrote a detailed message calibrating how contented she is with her body and encouraged others in the same situation to remain confident.
”As a skinny girl growing up, I was body shamed a lot through the years & its what made me step out & become a model. I became a beauty queen, represented my country 🇰🇪 for the crown & walked the runway to prove that it’s ok to have a body like mine. Even though I was hurting so deep inside.
Through the tears & the pain, I knew I had to do it to show the world that skinny is great, it’s how I was made & it’s A ok to look like me.
It’s ok to have the longest legs & a lean body a long graceful neck, & big African lips.
Pain has grown me so much & through the journey, I have become a BOLD woman. I’m back on the run way this year strutting the biggest fashion shows in the world. Im really confident, bold & sassy & as I turn 40 later this year, I’ve come full circle. It’s incredible, I’ve never felt more stunning than this. It’s indeed always a long painful journey to body positivity, don’t let anyone fool you or brush it off as nothing.
To all the little girls, to my daughters, your body is perfect my loves, tall or short, skinny or chubby. You can exercise because it’s ok to tone even when you’re skinny, & no you don’t need to eat more. You are your own kind of beautiful. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. There’s only one you, always & forever.
Body shaming happens for skinny girls & big girls & in Africa a lot more directed towards the skinny girls, There’s a lot of projecting, & Culturally it’s not ok to be skinny.
It’s interesting to observe, because I get asked what I do to stay skinny by women, joining gyms & spending the rest of their time obsessed with looking skinnier. So it’s the grass greener on the other side I suppose. There’s no winning. It’s diets & exercise, then it’s – you’re skinny, do something .. why though ?
We need to stop being tone deaf. Its not right, it’s wrong & it’s toxic. It’s damaging, we need to stop body shaming as women. Thick, thin you’re gorgeous all the same. We are us, you are you 🤍perfect.
Also, It’s time to celebrate the most beautiful me this year🤍
I am not apologetic for becoming the Queen that Iam today 👑 #poshqueen 🥂”
