Angela Stone Reacts To Michelle Blanchard's ‘Plus-Size’ Comment!

In the series premiere episode of The Real Housewives of Auckland, Angela Stone left in tears after her co-star Michelle Blanchard questioned her if she was a plus-size model during a discussion about their modeling careers at Julia Sloane's dinner party.

Now, model Angela Stone is firing back at her co-star, pointing out that Michelle is an 'ex-model' while she is still working in the industry.

"I didn't see it coming. I didn't think a woman could be that nasty to another woman who doesn't really know her," Angela told NZ Herald.

"She's an ex-model. I'm a current model. Models have changed. The thing is, you don't have to be a size 8 to be a model today. I'm actually really proud of my body."

Angela, who started modelling at the age of 14, said she was left in a state of shock when fellow housewife Michelle questioned her credentials.

"I was initially surprised when Michelle Blanchard called me 'plus-sized'," she wrote Stuff. "I didn't understand why she would refer to me in that way. I quickly realized what she was implying, which was when the anger kicked in."

The stylist and fashion designer said the term 'plus-size' is not an insult and should never be considered negative. She highlighted the fact that not all models are size 8 as there is more variety now to represent the female form.

"I am the first to admit that I have never been a size 8, and have never tried to be either. I am 5'11 and would obviously not fit into size 8 clothing. Why should I be made to feel that this is a bad thing? The answer is simple. I shouldn't. No one should.," wrote Stone.
