Rachel Kolisi says she ain't 'insecure', fam
Two weeks after she left the internet in a mess with a stinging clapback to women crushing on her man, Rachel Kolisi has slammed any suggestions she is "insecure".
The trouble started when a fan responded to a question about pursuing someone in a relationship, when they suggested that they would make exception for only one person and called Siya a whole "type". She also referred to a TV show where she said a female celebrity had encouraged her girlfriend to pursue Siya, despite him being married.
Rachel warmed her Twitter fingers to defend her man and wrote: "He’s not 'a type'. He’s a married man responsible for four children." But in the process was labelled as 'insecure' by some on social media.
She went to ground in the days following the incident but finally broke her silence on the claims this week.
Preaching about the virtues of loving your body and how people were often desperate to get their bodies back after giving birth, she addressed the elephant in the room and said she was doing just fine.
"Some of you might have read some stuff about me recently about being insecure among other things. I’ve never been in a more determined and motivated space. Here I am," she wrote.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE at the time, Rachel's management said the couple would not comment on the incident.
Okay. Here we go. These are unfiltered pics I took today after my second session with @stirlinggshaw and @bods_bytam I take a lot of pride in looking after my body and looking good so this is as raw as you’ll get me. I’ve also seen a lot of ladies who have recently had their first child and desperate for “their body back” I’ve been this person. 1. There’s no getting your body back, what our bodies go through carrying children and birthing them is nothing short of superhuman. 2. Why are we all so caught up in a twisted society that we need to be woman who are educated, have successful careers, be great mothers, wives, good social life, and great bodies? I see countless posts on a daily basis of woman working out postpartum covered head to toe “getting their bodies back” I’m guilty here too. Also countless posts of woman who do before and after posts but they’ll only post them when they’re in the “after” stage. Ive started a journey getting fit and healthy again. I’ve never been interested in being skinny. And I hope to inspire other woman not to be ashamed of where you’re at, but don’t get comfortable there either. Let’s live our best lives! Some of you might have read some stuff about me recently about being insecure among other things. I’ve never been in a more determined and motivated space. HERE I AM.
