Alyssa Milano to Jay Mohr: ‘Spanx’ for the apology

The feud is over between actress Alyssa Milano and comedian Jay Mohr. On January 3, Mohr posted a public apology to Milano on his blog after he “fat shamed” her following an awards show in Las Vegas where the 41-year-old “Who’s the Boss” alum presented.

After Milano presented at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Awards, Radar Online quoted Mohr as saying, “Somebody sat in the director’s chair and was not wearing Spanx and I was like, ‘Jesus Christ.'“

He also reportedly described Milano as “very tiny — in height - [but] it seems like she had a baby and said, "I don’t really give a s---" - I read it on her gut.”

The actress -- who gave birth to son Milo in August 2011 – called the comic out via Twitter for publicly fat-shaming her, and it was then that Mohr decided to issue an apology.

On his blog he wrote: “I had thought (incorrectly) in an improvisational moment, that the incongruousness of my statements, when held up to the light of how beautiful Alyssa Milano is, would have been funny given that she is the size of a thimble. It wasn't funny. Knowing that Alyssa, as well as her family, friends, fans, and especially her husband, heard things that were hurtful from my mouth crushed me. She has always been one of the kindest, most caring and beautiful people this town has ever seen.”

He also called Milano a “class act” and added: “Sometimes comedians go too far. I went too far. I cannot change what I said, but I can assure you that my heart is broken that I hurt her. “

But Milano had the final word – and the final joke. Following Mohr’s online apology, she tweeted: “@jaymohr37 Thank you. Apology accepted. (She grunts while aggressively yet cautiously prying off her head-to-toe Spanx). #PassTheCookies.”
