Vanderpump Rules star Katie Maloney added, “I’m not blind, I can clearly see the expression I’m making has given me about 12 chins.”

Tired Of What Other People Think

Well, Katie obviously grows fed up with people telling her what to think. She said, “I have been hearing now for too long that I should be ashamed of my body, calling out weight gain, weight loss, that I need to dress for my body.”

Additionally, don’t expect Katie to dress up to achieve a flattering shape to her body. For her, she’d rather dress comfortably, so she feels confident and not necessarily flattering.

Nowadays it seems like Katie has decided that she no longer cares what other people think. After all, she maintained that in the past, “it made me not even want to take photos with my friends and family, because I wouldn’t like the way I looked.”

Katie Treasures Her Memories

Vanderpump Rules star Katie Maloney won’t let the photo ruin anything with Raquel Leviss. That’s because in the past, she “couldn’t get past all the “unflattering bits” and just enjoy the memories.”

These days, Katie simply will not worry about other people’s opinions and declared, “not anymore.”

In fact, being able to look at the photos that did indeed so show some double chins, she could take the happiness from it. Instead of anger and shame, it makes her feel proud of how far she’s coming along in her journey to acceptance of her self-image.
