Amanda Stanton is finally standing up for herself and her fellow moms.
“I don’t normally like to address the trolls / mom shamers … but it’s so out of control!”
Amanda appeared on Ben Higgins season of The Bachelor and Season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise. She is officially returning for the fourth season.
“I’d like to take a moment to clarify first of all that my kids DO have a father [ex-husband Nick Buonfiglio, from whom she split in 2015] that is part of their life. They spend time with him, too. So if you see a photo of me without my kids one weekend and comment something like ‘mother of the year’ or ‘wow shouldn’t she be with her kids?’ Well, there’s a VERY good chance that I can’t be with them because they’re with their dad.
I am fortunate enough to be able to work from home and spend more time with my kids than most parents. If I never went on the Bachelor, I can honestly say I wouldn’t be able to to that. It might seem selfish to you that I keep ‘leaving my kids to try to find love’, but I promise you I am always thinking of my kids first.
I knew I was going to get a ton of backlash for going on the for a second season. But I did it anyway. And I’m not sorry and I don’t regret it because I know I’m a good mother. My kids are my entire world”
