‘I have no interest in watching it’: Em Rusciano has told her 2DayFM listeners that she will not be tuning in to the new Yummy Mummies show
‘If you are pregnant right now and you see these Yummy Mummies, and you’ll know what I mean, they look like models with basketballs shoved under their dresses, they look perfect,’ the breakfast radio host said on Monday.
‘That is not how pregnant women are meant to look,’ the mother-of-two added.
Her co-host Harley Breen agreed: ‘That’s not the norm.’

Em added that ‘however you look’ while pregnant ‘is right’.
Earlier in the segment, Em told her listeners how she felt after having watched the trailer.
‘I don’t feel rage. I feel sad. I just feel sad,’ she explained.
The comedian went on to disclaim that she’s ‘not going to have a go at some sisters hustling for cash,’ before revealing she won’t be watching the show when it premieres.
‘That is not how pregnant women are meant to look,’ said the mother-of-two, who also admitted she was ‘sad’ that Channel Seven didn’t create a show starring relatable women
‘I’m not going to watch it. I have no interest in watching it,’ Em said.
‘But I’m not going to sit here and tell these four women that what you’re doing is wrong and bad. They’re hustling and making cash while doing what they want to do.’
Instead of slamming the women appearing on the show, Em turned her attention to the creators of the series.

‘What I’m sad about is that Channel Seven didn’t think to make a similar show using four women that we can all relate to,’ the brunette said.
After sharing the trailer on the network’s Facebook page, Yummy Mummies has already attracted thousands of comments from the public, slamming the Real Housewives-style series.
‘You’ve found a more vulnerable target now, emotional hormonal pregnant women who are likely already feeling pretty fragile about their appearance,’ one viewer wrote.
