Alyssa Milano has been a staunchly vocal advocate for public breastfeeding, but Wendy Williams does NOT agree.
The two had quite the heated discussion on the topic during Milano’s appearance on The Wendy Williams Show.
The Charmed actress discussed the backlash she received after posting photos to Instagram of herself breastfeeding daughter Elizabella.
“It was kind of shocking that we were that, um, sort of opinionated about something that is supposed to be so incredibly natural.”
That’s when the talk show host jumped in, telling Milano, “I’m opinionated.”
“I don’t need to see that,” Williams told her. When asked why, she said simply, “Because, I don’t want to.”
Well Wendy, I don’t want to see mimes on the beach, but, you know, that doesn’t mean they don’t have a right to be there.
Milano challenged Williams by asking why it’s okay for Miley Cyrus to flaunt nearly every inch of her boobies in public, but a mother who’s nourishing her child is somehow taboo.
“I think people are more comfortable sexualizing breasts than relating them to what they were made for, which is feeding another human,” Milano explained last year in an interview with ET.
Williams, who breastfed her son, said that because breastfeeding is only necessary for a limited amount of time in a woman’s life, she sees breasts more as “sexual things.”
“They’re fun bags!” she exclaimed.
Milano, of course, didn’t change her mind. "You’re lucky the baby’s not here. I’d whip ’em out right here and feed her on your show!"
Looks like these two are going to have to agree to disagree.
