Did Alyssa Milano diss Jay Mohr's wife after fat shaming incident?

Alyssa Milano has been getting props for her response to comedian Jay Mohr's jab about her post-baby weight. But was the "Project Runway All Stars" host being classy or catty?

According to a Jan. 2 report by Us Weekly, Mohr made his inappropriate comments about Milano's weight during a radio interview. "She's very tiny, in height...It seems like she had a baby and said, ‘I don't really give a s--t'...I read it on her gut," he said. Mohr had seen Milano last month at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards gala.

Unfortunately, Jay Mohr had even more to say about the 41-year-old mother's weight. "Somebody sat in the director's chair and was not wearing Spanx and I was like, 'Jesus Christ,'" he said. So he basically whined about a mother not binding her body up to suit his idea of what a woman should look like. Alyssa Milano responded to his ridiculous comments by tweeting, "@jaymohr37 So sorry you felt the need to publicly fat-shame me. Be well and God Bless. Please send my love to your beautiful wife."

Mohr's wife is actress Nikki Cox, and she's given birth to two kids. Perhaps Milano mentioned Cox because she's also a mom who knows how difficult it can be to slim down after giving birth. Or perhaps she was reminding Mohr that he's married to a woman whose pursuit of perfection has left her looking just a tad ridiculous.

Nikki Cox used to be a very beautiful woman, but she totally screwed up her face by getting her lips enlarged to a cartoonish size. Since Mohr sees nothing wrong with making fun of a woman's perfectly normal post-baby weight, it's hard not to wonder if he's partly responsible for Cox's decision to turn to plastic surgery—perhaps he made the poor girl feel insecure about her lips, which were more than plump enough to begin with. Unfortunately, Mohr probably just made a lot of other women feel insecure by fat-shaming a mother who doesn't look fat at all.

Do you think that Milano mentioned Cox because of her bad plastic surgery, or do you think that she brought her up because she's also a mom?
