Dancing With the Stars star Sharna Burgess is pregnant and is sharing some of her pregnancy tips and stories with her fans. In one story, Burgess spoke about stretch marks and she unintentionally upset a fan.
in the their Instagram Stories On March 21, 2022, Burgess apologized for an earlier comment about rubbing her stomach and applying oils to make sure she doesn’t get stretch marks. She said she’s had some messages from people saying they don’t understand motherhood.
“Get my humor in that … I know it’s mostly hereditary and genetic, I’m either going to get them or not,” Burgess said. “And when I get them, I’ll wear them with badges of honor. But at the same time, I work in an industry where, unfortunately, the people who cast and direct and do all these things would prefer that their “sexy dancer” didn’t have stretch marks. So don’t come for me.”
Burgess too shared a video of herself rubbing oils on her stomach, which she hopes will prevent stretch marks and help keep her muscles flexible.
“Take care of everything with your doctors and get in tune with your body through meditation and breathwork. You will be so aware of your little one and it amplifies the magic,” Burgess wrote in the caption.
In an Instagram Story published on March 22, 2022, Burgess shared a comment she received about the stretch mark comment.
Burgess shared a lengthy comment called “an idiot”.
After all the talk about stretch marks and whether or not they’re hereditary, Burgess shared a comment she received on Instagram.
“This makes me angry, stretch marks aren’t hereditary or genetic!” the human wrote. “Have your doctor come and testify and I’ll believe it. Every time your skin stretches, whether it gains weight and then loses weight as your skin stretches, oil does not heal it. I don’t care if you rub your stomach 28 million times a day.
The comment went on to say that Burgess is perpetuating myths and that she should consult her doctor.
“Thanks for doing all your followers a disservice by proclaiming this propaganda bullsh**! Then you make the idiotic statement I’m not just going to wave the white flag and eat whatever I want, you’re the one keeping the negativity of pregnant women up…you really sound like an idiot!”
Burgess said the account has no followers and doesn’t follow anyone, saying it was created specifically to comment on her post. The dancer called it “super sad for whoever this lost angry soul is.”
Burgess shared more information and called the commenter aggressive
Commenting on the comment, Burgess wrote, “This is wild. A reply like this to a post I shared today. I am surprised every day by people’s hypersensitivity and have to deal with it aggressively. Damn wild.”
“As much as I’d like to, I’m not going to bring any of my doctors here (who both said it’s mostly genetic), you can wait for the next slide where I gather a lot of information sources for you. Impressive. It’s so aggressive that I actually laughed.”
She went on to share links to articles on “prevention and postpartum treatments you can do if you wish.”
She told the commenter, “You’re welcome,” but said the account has since been deleted.
Burgess’ baby is expected on July 4, 2022.
