Her daughter looks adorable. Period
Most of us have been mom-shamed at some point in our parenting life — it seems no one can escape the judgement of complete strangers pushing their opinions on others. It’s even more cut-throat for celebrities, because for some people, they feel if a person is a public figure they’re more deserving of criticism.
This week, The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice was at the center of an internet shit-storm after posting a bunch of videos and pictures of her nine-year-old daughter Audriana’s birthday party on Instagram. But it was one photo in particular that brought all the mom-shamers to the yard — a picture showing her daughter’s outfit, which revealed a tiny part of her stomach in a crop-top shirt with a keyhole on top.
“Happy Birthday to my beautiful @audrianagiudice8 hope you enjoyed your party today. Love you, Mommy #9 #friendsparty #happybirthday,” the mom-of-four wrote.
Strangers had all of the things to say about not only her outfit but the fact that the adorable little girl was wearing some make-up:
And of course, you always have the passive-aggressive commenter who is just fine with your choices but wants the world to know that she wouldn’t make them in 100 years:
It’s not like Giudice is the first public figure to ever face scrutiny. It’s a near-daily occurrence seeing celebs like Chrissy Teigen, Pink and husband, Carey Hart, and Flip or Flop star Christina El Moussa getting hateful comments at their parenting choices. It must be nice being a perfect parent. Eye roll.
Giudice is like all of us trying to keep up with our kids, who want nothing more than to grow up at rapid speed while we try to keep them young forever. Kids have strong minds and opinions (which should be celebrated, not silenced by the way). Her outfit is adorable and age-appropriate. She’s not posing nude for Playboy as a tween for god’s sake, just leave her be.
And as always, if you don’t want your kid dressing like Giudice’s daughter, then dress them however you like and keep your vile comments about a child to yourself. K thanks, bye.
