After winning the Miss Universe crown in 1996, Alicia Machado says Donald Trump called her “Miss Piggy” and demanded her to lose weight.

To Machado’s misfortune, Donald Trump had just taken over the Miss Universe organization right after she won the crown. That same year, she started gaining a significant amount of weight.

“She weighed 118 pounds or 117 pounds and she went to 160 or 170. So this is somebody that likes to eat,” Trump said publicly. Because we know he can’t keep his misogynistic thoughts to himself.

Last time we checked, that’s true for any human being. The whole weight-gain controversy turned into a spectacle to the point where Trump had Machado work out in front of media to prove that she was working on losing the weight ASAP. She says all of his verbal abuse led her to become severely depressed and battle with eating disorders for years.

Oh, and he also called her “Miss Housekeeping” – because of her accent.

J.Lo Wants You To Know She Ain’t No Diva

Who the hell decided that women need to be better behaved than men?

J.Lo joined six of TV’s hottest leading ladies for roundtable discussion with The Hollywood Reporter, discussing what they’ve experienced as women in the entertainment business and what it’s like being crowned a “diva.” The stories are telling of the industry.

As J.Lo explained, she feels like people get labeled divas when they don’t deserve it. Why? Well, as J.Lo said — and as all of the actors agreed — the diva moniker is always attached to women who achieve success. Even if you are on time and professional, that success for women translates into being a diva. Yes, men are called successful with the level of respect that accompanies that, and women are called divas. And, as if that isn’t bad enough, J.Lo touched on the general challenges of being a woman in the entertainment industry.

“Sometimes I felt crippled to voice my opinion, especially because certain directors and the boys’ club that they form can make you feel like, ‘Oh, I can’t say anything,'” J.Lo said during the round table. “I was always fascinated by how I could see [a man] being late or being belligerent to a crew and it being totally acceptable; meanwhile, I’d show up 15 minutes late and be berated.”

Get it, J.Lo. That’s how you point out the gendered double standard while still being flawless.
