In 2013 Kang was caught up in a controversy after she posed for a photo with her three children, showing off her toned body under the caption, “what’s your excuse?” At the time she was accused of fat-shaming other mothers.
On Thursday she was a guest on Kelly's morning show to say that she's now taking a softer approach to fitness and wants to inspire other moms to work out.
Kelly revealed that while she was a law student she enlisted her stepfather’s help to stay thin.
“Some of us want to be shamed,” Kelly said. “When I was in law school, I was gaining weight, I said to my stepfather, 'If you see me going into that kitchen one more time, you say, “Where you going, fat ass?”’ And it works!”
Kelly suggested Kang parlay “the shaming thing into a professional business.”
