Well played, Christina El Moussa. Well played.
“Flip or Flop” star El Moussa got a sly dig in at the haters over the weekend, after getting called out over a mother-daughter bikini photo last week.
El Moussa fired a subtle shot in an Instagram post featuring a photo of kids frolicking at a pool, writing, “Our first slumber party!! … 6 kids, a dog and 2 moms. So fun, crazy, but so fun …”
The reality show personality added, “*sorry just realized kids in swimwear again.. it’s cali people it’s what we do*”
That last comment was a seeming reference to the negative attention El Moussa received last week, after she posted a photo of herself and daughter Taylor in bikinis.
The photo was part of a promotion for swimwear line L*Space by Monica Wise. And it made some commenters dive off the deep end, hurling criticism at the reality TV personality, who is currently undergoing a divorce from her husband and “Flip or Flop” co-star, Tarek El Moussa.
“That is completely inappropriate! I am done with your show you are not making good mother choices,” one detractor wrote.
Another chimed in, “I don’t like the direction you r going in, just not cool.”
“I agree. What mother does this???” went another complaint.
To be fair, many commenters weighed in to express their appreciation for the photo — and far more than a few gushed over El Moussa’s figure.
Obviously, El Moussa’s ability to address criticism is in fine form as well.
