Yolanda Hadid Defends Much Criticized ‘Two Almonds’ Comment


Yolanda Hadid used the age-old “taken out of context” excuse while defending her infamous 2014 comment telling her daughter Gigi Hadid to eat “some almonds”.

Hadid addressed the controversial quote in a new interview with People on Thursday, saying she was “half asleep” after breast implant removal surgery when she said so on “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

“Gigi was calling because she wasn’t feeling well and I apparently said, half asleep, ‘Have two almonds,'” Hadid, 58, explained.

“I don’t even remember why two or what. There was no rhyme or reason. It’s such a stupid narrative out there that has nothing to do with the reality of our lives.

At the time, Bravolebrity was on the phone with Gigi when she told him to “get some almonds and chew them well.”

“I always have a bag of almonds or some other type of nut in my bag because when my blood sugar drops I can grab a hand of nuts and eat them,” she told People. “It’s really good for that. But it’s not that I use it as a diet food. Anyway, I don’t believe in diets.

Hadid has also faced backlash for speaking out about her daughters’ appearances on more than one occasion during her four years on the hit Bravo series.

“You can spend a night being mean,” she once told Gigi about eating at her birthday party. “And then, you have to go back to your diet.”

“It’s hard not to eat sugar, and it’s hard to have to eat salad every day,” she told Gigi in another scene.

The former model has since poked fun at her controversial comments. Last month, she posted a TikTok video of herself walking around eating almonds and dubbed herself the “worst mum ever.”
