Kelly recounted how while studying at Albany Law School in the 1990s, she had her stepfather fat-shame her whenever she wanted to eat. “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!” she explained.
