"I have a responsibility to young women all over this country that may misunderstand me showing my body as some sexualized exercise in commerce," said Underwood to co-hosts who shared naked selfies in support of Kim Kardashian.
Kim Kardashian’s selfie-gate is still sparking tons of conversation, criticism, and praise.
This time the ladies of The Talk are talking about it and showing their support of Kardadshian by sharing their own nude selfies. During the discussion co-host Sheryl Underwood got a bit teary-eyed when it was revealed that she’d taken her own nude photo, but wouldn’t be sharing it.
“While I am not ashamed of my body in any way and while I love my brown skin to death. I hope that one day those pictures can come out for me as an individual woman who loves my curves and loves who I am. I thank Kim Kardashian for doing something so big that SHE may not even understand the discussion that she has truly started. But, I also have a responsibility to young women all over this country that may misunderstand me showing my body as some sexualized exercise in commerce and not empowering me to be 185 pounds and voluptuous and dark skinned and sexy and desirable. The reason I’m about to cry is because, I fought hard to get here, but now I make choices for not just for myself, but for my race, for my people and for women. I want to be able to show that there is another standard of beauty.”
