Meghan King Edmonds is refusing to let her critics get the best of her.

The former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star took to social media to hit back at her mom-shaming trolls with a sultry lingerie selfie.

The 35-year-old celebrity shared a photo of herself to Instagram wearing matching black bra and underwear in her bathroom while showing off her wet hair and a collection of bath toys belonging to her three children, 3-year-old Aspen and 1-year-old twins Hart and Hayes.

“BUT YOU’RE A MOTHER!” King Edmonds captioned the post of herself modelling designs by Beverly Hills-based brand Avery Rose Lingerie.

“As you become overly concerned with a stranger, just remember ima still do me. Brb gotta go live my best life byeeeee [sic],” she said to her trolls, which she calls “Nancys in Nebraskas.”

The “Intimate Knowledge” podcast host received support from her former “Real Housewives of Orange County” castmate Tamra Judge, who encouraged King Edmonds to pay her critics no attention.

“You look hot mama,” Judge commented on King Edmonds’s sexy snap. “Who cares what the haters [are] gonna say.”

The reality TV star turned blogger has issued similar messages to her online bullies after admitting to losing weight due to stress brought on by her recent split from former MLB player Jim Edmonds. The pair announced their break up in Oct. 2019 after five years of marriage following allegations that Edmonds had an affair with the couple’s nanny.

“I am too skinny. I don’t like it. I won’t weigh myself because I’m scared to see what the scale says,” King Edmonds told fans in a Dec. 2019 Instagram post. “When my clothes don’t fit I pretend like they do anyway. But I’m not hungry. I know I should eat but I’m surviving on adrenaline but decaying on stress.

While King Edmonds continues to work through her divorce and adjust to life as a single mom, her fans are encouraging her to take care of herself.

“Get it mama! Confidence is key!” another added. “And after having a baby it’s not an easy thing to do...So I commend you for loving yourself in a time when it’s easy to pick yourself apart!”
