Even months after Love magazine published a now-famous quote from Kendall Jenner in which she said she’s “super selective” about what fashion jobs she does—all while being among the highest-paid models in the industry—her industry colleagues have been discussing and responding to her comments. Some called out Jenner’s privilege; Naomi Campbell had but two words on the matter. Now, Ashley Graham has joined the conversation, after being asked about it on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live.
On Thursday night’s episode, Graham received a call about Jenner’s controversial comments, and she gave a powerful answer.
“Well, lucky for her,” she said, with a chuckle. “‘Cause I’ve never been—that’s so lucky. These t*ts and a** have just had to fight through and break down barriers everyday.” (Jenner has since clarified her statements.)
Check out the clip of Graham, below.
Jenner’s experience in the modeling industry might not be relatable to Graham, but there doesn’t seem to be any bad blood between the two. (They’ve appeared on magazine covers together, and recently spoke on a panel about modeling during Vogue‘s Forces of Fashion conference.) Later in the episode, Graham played a game in which she had to spill “Positivi-Tea” about her friends and fellow models, during which she praised Jenner, saying: “She’s in demand, honey!”
Watch her share her love and thoughts on Jenner, Karlie Kloss, and more.
Oh, and reminder: If you want some more real talk from Graham, you can check her out at Glamour‘s Woman of the Year summit this November, where she’ll be speaking.
