“Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice is in the hot seat yet again, this time for letting her nine-year-old daughter wear both makeup and a crop top.
In images from the young girl’s birthday party, Giudice is shown showering her daughter, Audriana, with gifts, a three-tier cake and hot pink balloons.
“Happy birthday to my beautiful @audrianagiudice8 hope you enjoyed your party today. Love you, Mommy,” read one photo’s caption.
But many people on social media can’t get past the “inappropriate” look.
“Don’t let her grow up too fast! I remember when I was 13 and wore lipstick, curled my eyelashes and plucked my eyebrows… now I wish I had those days back,” reads one comment.
“A mother should know better. Teresa, you are making your daughter a target for many forms of unwanted attention. What would you mother say? I think you know. Get back in touch with reality… the real kind,” says another.
But others were quick to defend 46-year-old Giudice.
“I am shocked by these comments. As a mother I cannot imagine judging another mother the way these people are – let alone saying the mean and hateful things. Very, very sad! Whether I agree with it or not, it doesn’t matter. It’s not my daughter,” said one commenter. “And as a female I choose to build people up not tear them down. Especially when it comes to a nine-year-old.”
“Don’t see anything wrong with her hair or makeup. Everyone should keep their comments to their damn selves. This is a happy birthday post to her daughter not a, ‘Can I get random advice from people who don’t know me or my daughter?’ post. Either wish her a Happy Birthday or scroll along and get a life,” added another.
This isn’t the first time the “Real Housewives” star has been criticized for her parenting style. She’s been shamed numerous times for letting her youngest daughter wear makeup, and last month she was slammed for letting her 14 and 17 year old daughters wear “revealing” tops. And on a recent family trip to the Bahamas, Giudice was criticized for posting a photo of her family in their bikinis.
What do you think? It seems to us like the celebrity mom just can’t catch a break.
