Alyssa Milano wasn't going to let Jay Mohr off the hook. The actress and mom, 41, kicked off the New Year on a sour note when the comedian, 42, leveled cruel insults her way in a recent radio interview -- calling attention to her post-baby figure. ("It seems like she had a baby and said, 'I don't really give a s--t'...I read it on her gut," the "Suburgatory" actor sniped.) Mohr subsequently apologized -- and Milano graciously accepted last Friday via Twitter.
The "Mistresses" star explained to Extra's Mario Lopez why she chose to engage with Mohr in the first place following his insult. "Well, he made a comment that was not so nice about my weight and I called him out on Twitter about it. I just think he was trying to make a joke and not think about it," Milano said.
Adding to the hurt? "I heard it actually on Christmas Day and it hurt me, I was affected by it and I wanted to remind him that I'm a human being and that this hurts."
The "Who's the Boss" alum hopes there will be less "fat-shaming" in the future. "I think it's an interesting statement about where we are socially that people feel that they can sort of rip a woman's body apart after having a baby," said Milano, who welcomed some Milo with husband David Bugliari back in August 2011. "I don't think it's fair."
She confided: "I gained 55 pounds when I was pregnant, I still have 10 more to lose."
