Cheryl Tiegs clarifies comments on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition's plus-sized cover

Former supermodel Cheryl Tiegs is clarifying her comments about current Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover model Ashley Graham. Tiegs spoke to E! News at Wednesday’s Global Green USA Pre-Oscar Party and said SI shouldn’t be glamorizing full-figured women.

"I don't like it that we're talking about full-figured women," Tiegs said. "It's glamorizing them, and your waist should be small than 35. That's what Dr. Oz said and I'm sticking to it. I don't think it's healthy. Her face is beautiful, but I don't think it's healthy in the long run."

Tiegs responded with the following statement on Facebook:

"I would like to clarify my thoughts regarding bodyweight. I don't think being anorexic, bulimic or overweight are healthy. All of these can be connected to serious health issues. I want everyone to be as healthy as they can be."
