The last laugh! Stunning Sophie Monk reveals she was bullied at school for being overweight by a ‘tool’ who later threatened to sue her
She is the glamorous host of Beauty and the Geek.
But Sophie Monk says she wasn’t always the beauty she’s known for and was bullied at school for being overweight.
“I was definitely bullied at school. I used to have to sing after every meeting, which is so humbling,” she said during a recent interview on The Kyle and Jackie O Show.

“They made me sing the school anthem, the national anthem, whatever, and the kids always said ‘it’s not over until the fat lady sings,'” she added.
She said she was even called “cellulite queen” by one particularly annoying bully.
The 42-year-old said she had mentioned the bully earlier in the broadcast, but was later contacted by him and threatened legal action for saying his name.

Sophie joked that he hadn’t changed in the years since and it was “good to know he’s a tool now.”
The actress told the hosts that something good came out of the ordeal when she learned how to respond to difficult situations with a smile.
“It has instilled in me a sense of humor. I’ve learned self-contempt,” she explained.
