"Flip or Flop" personality Christina Anstead had a retort for social media users who criticized her parenting abilities and termed her an absentee parent.
Real estate expert Christina Anstead set the record straight in her recent Instagram post, where she laid it bare for critics who disapproved of her parenting style.
In the post, Christina, 37, shared a mirror selfie where she put her trim frame in display while rocking a sweatshirt and a pair of ripped black jeans. The star mom, who took her selfie inside her luxurious bathroom, addressed fans in a lengthy write-up.
The TV started by reflecting on how she viewed the year 2020, mentioning how the new normal included cancelation of travels, public dinners, and cancellation of church activities due to the pandemic.
Ant mentioned in his public announcement that he wished things turned out differently because he wanted their marriage to work.
Christina noted the changes that had to be effected, which in turn affected most people and how they were "struggling." The reality went on to address critics:
"When I get told 'you must be an absent mother because you are not with your kids,'- smh wake up people. I hardly post anymore. And I def do it want to post my kids every [expletive] day…"
Christina went on as she called out the trolls while noting that posting photos of one's kids do not connote a competition for who the better parent was. The mom-of-three also clamped down the sentiment while establishing that she was present in her kids' lives.
Christina, who is presently going through a divorce, is mom to three kids, Taylor Reese and Brayden James, from her marriage to fellow star Tarek El Moussa. She shares the parenthood of little Hudson London with her recently estranged spouse, Ant Anstead.
In September, the 37-year-old made it known that she and Ant were splitting up after two years of marriage. On the flipside, Ant mentioned in his public announcement that he wished things turned out differently because he wanted their marriage to work.
However, the "Wheelers Dealers" alum stated that they were both fine, and he respected Christina's decision. He also noted that he hoped that their relationship remained amicable.
According to an insider, Christina has been having a tough time coming to terms with the divorce, but she has been letting out her feelings via Instagram. In one of her posts, the star noted that her marriage's current situation was because she chose peace.
