The Wedding Dress Debacle
“The dress was indeed too small. It was two sizes too small. There was no reason for the dress to be too small because the day that we did that, we had just done our season’s photo shoot 5 days before. So everyone had all of my proper sizes. There was no reason for a dress to come and be too small for me to get into. Because there was beginning to be a rub between me and production, I did not want anyone to believe that I was trying to be difficult and not even try the dress. What you didn’t see that I actually put the dress on, so that everyone could see that the dress was too small and it looked absolutely ridiculous. And one of the production staff asked me to keep the dress on and wear it anyway even though it was too small. ‘Come on Kelly, it’s not about whether or not you can fit the dress. We’re in the chapel, you all have your bouquets, you’re going to be doing your vows. We just want the moment. We want everybody in white, just kind of go along with it. You know it could be really funny.’
That’s not funny to me. And all of the ladies heard it, they saw it. I actually got very upset and I walked away because my eyes started to well up with tears. Not so much because I was having a sensitive fat girl moment. I was angry to know that on purpose, I was trying to be made a fool out of, on camera. Chante didn’t know. She didn’t pick the dresses, she did not have our sizes. She was not in a David’s Bridal somewhere picking out gowns. That was the responsibility of one of the production people. So it was done on purpose.”
