"For the last three years I let MY BODY become a topic of conversation,” she continued. “I say ‘let’ because I didn’t have the courage or self love [to] argue it. FOR THREE YEARS. I’m not perfect. I know who I am. But I’m not a weak b—-. I vowed to make changes. And I did.”
“I am going to continue to grow and remind myself of my own strength," Maloney-Schwartz added. "If that makes me a mean b—- in your eyes then so f—ing be it! I’m remaining true.”
While some of Maloney-Schwartz's Vanderpump Rules co-stars have apologized for participating in the body-shaming, others have come to her defense. Just earlier this year, Stassi Schroeder and Brittany Cartwright clapped back at Maloney-Schwartz's critics after members of the cast attended the Oscars.
The Season 8 virtual reunion was filmed on Thursday, Andy Cohen said on his SiriusXM radio show Monday, promising fans that the show "was really good."
Maloney-Schwartz wasn't the only one who dressed up for the virtual get together. Schroeder shared a selfie on Instagram Tuesday revealing that she did her own make-up for the reunion.
"Virtual reunion glam by me," the Next Level Basic author wrote in the caption for the selfie, in which she wears a red top and gold dangling earrings.
Vanderpump Rules airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
