A controversial Russian TV presenter and Playboy model has said that she is disgusted by overweight people, and does not want them next to her on public transport or in the same swimming pool.

Gorgeous Alena Vodonaeva, 36, a controversial TV presenter and influencer with over 2.2 million Instagram followers, said: “What body-positivity are we talking about? Being overweight means having diabetes, damages joints, affected heart, kidneys, liver…

“All health problems begin with being overweight. I put this disease on the same level as alcoholism and drug-abuse.”

Vodonaeva, who once claimed to have performed oral sex on her boyfriend outside the Kremlin, said that she feels disgusted by fat people and does not want to share a swimming pool or public transport with an overweight person next to her, according to local media.

Additionally, the former Playboy model reportedly said that she does not understand glossy magazines using plus-size models to promote clothing brands.

The 36-year-old admits that she loves to eat, but claims that she works hard to keep herself in good shape.

Netizen ‘I Giraffe’ said: “I haven’t heard such stupidity in a long time.”

‘Katyunya Funtik’ commented: “She is a really unpleasant woman, as well as very stupid.”

Vodonaeva first found fame on ‘Dom-2’ (‘House 2’), Russia’s longest-running reality show in which contestants have to build a home while trying to find a partner in the process.
