Mom-Shaming Amanda For Being On 'Bachelor In Paradise' Is So Uncalled For
Bachelor In Paradise is like one big Bachelor Nation reunion — only on this show and on the Bachelor weddings do we get to see so many rejected people from one franchise. One of those familiar faces is Amanda Stanton, who was on Ben’s season of The Bachelor, as well as Bachelor In Paradise 3. Love didn’t work out for her then, but that doesn’t mean that she shouldn’t keep trying. Amanda has every right to be on Bachelor In Paradise 4. Even if she has kids.
Amanda and Ben didn’t make it through the hometown dates, and even though Amanda left Bachelor In Paradise 3 engaged to Andi Dorfman ex Josh Murray, Amanda is currently single. She and Josh split early in 2017, and now she’s looking for love in possibly all the wrong places. Despite the fact I don’t think that reality television is necessarily the best way to find someone to marry, Amanda can be on Bachelor In Paradise 4 if she wants to be. I know that she has two daughters at home (they are frequently in her Instagram posts and they are super cute), but some people on Twitter seem to feel like she should be with them 24/7 — and mom-shaming her isn't cool.
People Told Her To Go Home
Also, Amanda needs to spend more time with her girls instead of on dating television shows #BachelorInParadise— bn🌻 (@bnalezz) August 15, 2017
doesn't amanda have kids to raise? why is she on #bachelorinparadise yet again??🙄🤔— almagod (@_AlmaReyna) August 15, 2017
Am I a bitch for thinking that maybe Amanda should like go be a mom and not be on this show for the third season? #BachelorInParadise— Victoria Higgins (@vhiggins21) August 15, 2017
Amanda needs to be with her children and Taylor is already annoying #BachelorInParadise— Corinne Franchette (@corinnefranchet) August 15, 2017
Yeah, because she can't ever take a vacation *rolls eyes*
People Accused Her Of Hating Her Children
For the 5,000th time, Amanda hates her kids. No doubt about it. #BachelorInParadise— Trent (@BarstoolTrent) August 15, 2017
Why would Amanda pass up another opportunity to get away from her kids for a few months? #BachelorinParadise— jeremy (@jermfree) August 15, 2017
Newsflash: Going on vacation doesn't mean you hate your kids.
People Called Into Question How Much She Talked About Them
Ben talked about his dog more than Amanda talked about her kids #BachelorInParadise— Erica (@erica62442) August 15, 2017
Ben Z misses his dog more than Amanda misses her kids. #BachelorInParadise— Tina Kaveney (@KaveneyTina) August 15, 2017
We don't even see everything that was filmed anyway, and also this is none of our business.
People Judged Her Choices
Amanda is like that girl from high school that had kids way too young & posts pics of her partying every weekend on FB #BachelorInParadise— Cam (@OhhhDarling) August 15, 2017
Um, ouch? Frankly, it’s not really anyone’s business what Amanda chooses to do with her life. (Not to mention that Paradise only films for a matter of weeks — so she's not even gone that long) The way I see it, this is a working mom situation — Amanda and all of the other Bachelor In Paradise contestants make money off of this show (and all the other shows), and this is how she’s pulling in a paycheck. Do any of the Bachelor In Paradise dads get hate for leaving their children at home while they work? I doubt that’s the case. Being a Bachelor contestant is lucrative, especially if you know how to monetize your fame into Instagram (which Amanda definitely does). It would be silly not to! Amanda is looking for love and earning a living for her family, and we should all trust that she is raising her kids responsibly and doing what’s best for them. She’s their mom — not the Internet.
