How many times has your mom said or done something to embarrass you? Wait, don’t try to count – we don’t have all day! Luckily, we don’t have to worry about our moms blabbing to tabloids.
Gabourey Sidibe’s mother, Alice Tan Ridley, chatted to RadarOnline.com about her Oscar-nominee daughter, and she didn’t hold anything back. She said Gabourey is hoping to lose some weight.
“The truth is Gabourey would like to lose some weight but the reality is that she would not have gotten the role of Precious if she had not been heavy,” Ridley said. “As her mom I would like to see my daughter healthy but if she didn’t lose weight that’s not a problem either – it runs in our family.”
Cue Gabourey rolling her eyes, smacking her forehead and whining, “Mooommm… you are so embarrassinggg….”
“I’m proud of my daughter no matter what and the truth is that there are all kinds of acting roles for all sorts of people,” Ridley added.
Alice, we’re glad to hear you’re proud of Gabourey, but please don’t go blabbing to the press about your daughter’s private life. Dina and Michael Lohan did it, and we all know how well-adjusted that family is… (Huffington Post)
