Ashley recently discussed her first Sports Illustrated cover during her appearance on the Steve Harvey show.

“When it was released that I was in Sports Illustrated – just released that I was in it, not on the cover – I went to Instagram and I read the comments,” Ashley said. “I wanted to see if people were happy, if they would praise me because they were excited to finally see a curvy woman in Sports Illustrated. And that was not what happened.” (via Revelist)

“I don’t normally cry from Instagram comments because I’ve heard it all,” she went on. “But in this moment, I cried because all I saw was, ‘Oh, you put a heffer in the magazine.’ [There were] women [saying], ‘Oh, I’m over here working out 24/7, but a girl who doesn’t even go to the gym gets to be in the pages of Sports Illustrated?’ I felt like I had ruined Sports Illustrated. I felt like I had taken it down a notch.”

“Lo and behold, it was a groundbreaking cover,” she added. “Yes, it changed my life, but that cover changed so many other women’s lives. That cover will forever be a statement in the fashion industry that size does not matter. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.”

FYI: Ashley is wearing Krewe sunglasses.
