“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak-Biermann is no stranger to facing parenting criticism.
But Kim doesn’t let it keep her down, as she has continued to share glimpses into her loving family’s life.
However, she’s now getting mom-shamed yet again after revealing her daughter, 17-year-old Ariana, has lost 30 pounds.
Kim told Entertainment Tonight that her daughter dropped the weight after receiving criticism on social media.
“Ariana, now, she’s lost, like, 30 pounds. She works out at the gym every day. She’s itty-bitty tiny. She’s really kind of come into her own. But at the time, a lot of her friends are on the smaller side … they’re, like, a size negative-zero, 99 percent of her friends, so to her, she’s like, ‘I’m fat, and I’m this…’ and it’s just hard, and it’s heartbreaking.”
The mom said that Instagram users are the harshest on her teen daughter and that she has to monitor the account “because of the nasty comments.”
Now that Ariana has lost weight, they accuse her of editing her photos. Kim said:
“Now, they’re saying all she does is photoshop her pictures, ’cause she’s not that small. It’s a constant battle, and I always want my girls to love themselves, no matter what size they are.”
Kim said she’s open with her girls about the plastic surgery she’s received but made it clear that they are too young get it themselves”
“I am not open to any plastic surgery on my girls at this time. I tell them, you know, when you’re done having kids and all that good stuff, worry about all that stuff later on down the road, if that’s what you want to do, but you guys are beautiful and so young.”
However, many fans are blaming the mom for her daughters’ focus on looks. One Facebook user wrote:
Maybe if her mom wasnt so obsessed with her looks, she’d have a healthier way of seeing herself?
When all you do is teach your children that looks are the most important thing, what do you expect to happen?
Kim has yet to respond to any of the criticism over her comments.
But if past criticism is any indicator, the reality star will be hitting back at her mom-shamers in no time.
