Body Positivity in Response to ‘Almond Mom’ Yolanda Hadid of ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’

What is an almond mom? The term has taken over social media sites, such as TikTok, to describe a parent who is consumed with dieting. As is the case with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star, Yolanda Hadid, many almond moms project their unhealthy relationship with food onto their children.

‘Almond mom’ Yolanda Hadid was caught giving her daughter, Gigi, diet advice.

In a viral video, Hadid is responding to her daughter, Gigi, who is “feeling really weak.” Gigi was shaking and shared she had only “had, like, half an almond.”

Hadid coached Gigi to “Have a couple of almonds, and chew them really well.”

The video went on to show clips of conversations where Hadid shared her opinion that Gigi’s body was “big and bulky.”

“You can have one night of being bad, right,” Hadid says. “Then you gotta get back on your diet, though. Because, you know, in Paris and Milan they like the girls just a tad on the skinny side.”
