Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Star Kyle Richards Is Slammed For Sharing Bikini Shot Of Daughter!

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Star Kyle Richards Is Slammed For Sharing Bikini Shot Of Daughter!

Kyle Richards is undoubtedly one of reality TV’s favourite housewives. As one of the original cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills we’ve watched her juggle a growing business as well as running a household of 3 girls, lots of dogs and one husband!
Richards is mum to 4 gorgeous daughters (three of them with current husband Mauricio Umansky and older daughter Farrah with first husband Guraish Aldjufrie). The family are close knit and are often pictured holidaying together – usually in Umansky’s native Mexico.
On a recent getaway to Italy, the reality star shared a sweet snap of her youngest daughter Portia posing in her cute little bikini against a stunning backdrop of the Italian coastline.

Unfortunately, Richard’s fans ignored the stunning scenery and were quick to point out how inappropriate they thought Portia’s outfit was.

“You should be ashamed and your daughter taken away from you. Not just for this pic, but for all the inappropriate pics you post of her!!” wrote one Instagram commenter.

“Don’t put your semi-naked small child on a public Instagram,” commented another.

That’s Amore ??❤️

The comments kept coming. “Do you have any idea how many totally creepy men there are out there,” said another.

The 48 year old gave back as good she got and responded swiftly to her haters.

“If that’s where your mind goes then shame on you,” Richards wrote. “This is an innocent photo of a child just out of the pool.”

It’s not the first time the mum of four has shared photos of her daughters in bathing suits. Admittedly Portia is the youngest and doesn’t quite understand the implications of social media but are the commenters right in attacking Richards? Should we keep photos of our children in swimming costumes for our eyes only? I too worry about the sick people in our  society who look beyond the innocence of children and see them purely for their own perverted needs. But should we be the ones to keep our kids hidden? Or should we be allowed to share whatever we want knowing that we can’t control people’s impressions or thoughts of our photos?

Being a celebrity is different to just sharing photos of your kids on Facebook. We have no where near the reach these stars do. Once they share an Instagram photo it’s instantly splashed across millions of screens. That image can then easily be copied and manipulated by anyone with a computer or phone. It does raise an interesting question. Are we putting our kids at risk by sharing photos of them in swimsuits?
