Lisa Rinna defends Amelia Gray’s lingerie post
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills drama is heating up off the cameras. This week, a hurtful comment was left on an Instagram post shared by Lisa Rinna’s daughter, Amelia Gray Hamlin—and the reality star mom was having none of it. The post in question featured Gray posing in a white lace lingerie set. “@lisarinna wtf is wrong with u? U like what u see???? Discusting [sic],” an Instagram user wrote. Rinna’s reply was swift: “What is wrong with you? This is my child.” The mom-of-two is known for her love of family, frequently posting supportive and sweet photos of daughters Amelia Gray and Delilah Belle, as well as her husband, Harry Hamlin, so of course she’ll come directly for trolls if they dare to insult the brood. Cruel commenters, watch out!

Two blue hearts with two exclamation emojis. The Princess gave birth in London’s Portland Hospital, which was the birthplace of both herself and Princess Beatrice—not to mention Meghan Markle’s son, Archie. We can’t wait for the announcement of the newborn’s name, which outlets anticipate will come out this week.
