Ashley Graham in a bikini
Bitter former former former former swimsuit model Cheryl Tiegs lashed out at Sports Illustrated
for putting plus-size model Ashley Graham on the cover of the annual Swimsuit Issue
, saying that in her day -- you know, when she used to walk uphill both ways through the snow to get to her bikini shoots -- the Swimsuit Issue
was all about making overweight people feel excluded, not included. She told E!
"I don't like that we're talking about full-figured women because it's glamorizing them because your waist should be smaller than 35 [inches]. That's what Dr. Oz said, and I'm sticking to it," she explained. "No, I don't think it's healthy. Her face is beautiful. Beautiful. But I don't think it's healthy in the long run."
Dr. Oz also said your morning routine shouldn't include self-administering Botox you bought off a guy named Hector on Craigslist, but Cheryl appears to be doing that. So if you're going to listen to him, you might as well listen to him all the way. Sure Ashley may not be one to pass up seconds, but at least she doesn't look like a burn victim. Get with the times, Cheryl. Hate to kick you while you're down, but there's also black bikini models now. I'd be interested in hearing your thought on that . . .

Fresh from being fired from the Celebrity Apprentice, former Sports Illustrated model Cheryl Tiegs has been discussing the current crop of bikini models and is less than impressed with America's favorite new cover star: Kate Upon. Tiegs joined Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Monday's Access Hollywood Live and was asked about the current Sports Illustrated issue, which features 19-year-old Upton on the cover. Cheryl said,
"It's not my favorite Sports Illustrated cover of all time.I like so many of the pictures inside. Sports Illustrated always has that fine line of being very 'sexy/girl next door/earthy/kind of athletic.This is a step toward Playboy, I think."
"Former" fashion model Cheryl Tiegs has a problem. Exactly. FORMER fashion model. Granny, who cares what you have to say about anything, especially Kate Upton. Old lady Tieg's time would be better spent worrying if she'll ever have another solid bowel movement, not lambasting Kate for showing too much of those fantastic tits
. The last time her opinion mattered, women weren't legally allowed to vote. Thanks for opening your mouth on that one, Susan B. Anthony. The "B" must stand for "Bitch."*21 Kate Upton pictures total in the gallery:
