Watch: Whitney Port Says She Doesn't "Look Healthy" Amid Weight Concern

Nothing is unwritten between Whitney Port and Tim Rosenman.
Two months after the Hills alum addressed comments surrounding her weight loss, sharing that her husband was worried about her, the two are setting the record straight.
"I think you quoted me as saying I was concerned and yes you're right, that opened up the press and everyone else to be like, ‘The husband is concerned so Whitney must have an eating disorder,'" Tim told Whitney during the Aug. 29 episode of her With Whit podcast. "We should set the record straight, okay? I guess that's on me to say what I meant by concerned."
The television producer—who shares 6-year-old Sonny with Whitney—noted that he realized his wife "looked very skinny" in bikini photos she snapped at the beach.
"And you often don't finish your meals and so I was concerned that you were just too thin from an aesthetic point of view," he continued, "which that might open me up to me being an asshole or whatever. But personally I prefer you with another, like, 10 to 15 pounds on you, from a looks point of view."

Tim went on to say that it's "easy to see someone who is underweight and think that they have an eating disorder," adding that there is a "total double standard."

"Because if someone was 10 to 15 pounds overweight," he added, "you would be crucified if you did, and rightfully so."

Today, he feels more at ease, especially knowing her medical checkups speak for themselves.

"I am not worried about your health because I have intimate knowledge," he told the reality TV alum. "I was just concerned if you had some kind of strained relationship with food, with appearance, with being in the public eye…People took what I said and gave you an eating disorder and you're unhealthy and all this stuff and that is just not the case."


And for her part, Whitney, who said her weight loss first stemmed from an injury to her esophagus, is focused on making her health a priority.

"I do think it's been blown out of proportion," she said. "I want to gain more strength. I'm going to go see a nutritionist to talk about because I think it's important to be as healthy as possible."
