Emily Maynard Defends Stay-at-Home Moms in Twitter Squabble

Mom Moment 7

Emily Maynard motherOkay, I'll admit it -- I'm totally fascinated by Emily Maynard. Between her endless shopping trips and relaxing vacations -- that girl just has the life, doesn't she? Well, apparently I'm not the only one who thinks so.

A Twitter follower recently questioned Em on her income, claiming she's always photographed traveling or shopping, to which the reality star quickly defended herself: "I wish this were true! Unfortunately no one is at my house taking pics of me cleaning toilets."

The follower pushed the question again, unsatisfied with Emily's response and questioned: "What? Someone pays you to clean your own toilets? I'm talking about a job, your livelihood, money you earn?"

So rude, right? Well, don't worry -- Emily's response definitely puts this Twitter banter to rest. Someone call the vet because we're ready for a cat fight.

The Bachelorette star replied:

There are stay at home moms all over the world. I'm certainly not the only one. Not sure why this would be any of your business?

She's right -- it's none of anybody's business. (But it's kind of public knowledge that Emily was the highest paid Bachelorette in history. Not to mention her late fiance, Ricky Hendrick, was reportedly worth $15 million at the time of his death. But that's neither here nor there ...)

Aside from all of that, since when does being a stay-at-home mother mean you can't travel, shop, and look hot? Who's to say you can't do it all? I say more power to Emily for being able to juggle being a single mother on top of everything else she's got going on.

That being said ... if she's worth as much as people say she's worth, I'm going to have to guess she hires someone else to clean those toilets. Just sayin'!

Are you a stay-at-home mom? How do you feel about it?
