While most of us envision schoolyard bullying as something that only small children are forced to deal with on a daily basis, there are also adults who endure the gauntlet of mockery from their peers. Bella Vrondos had to learn this lesson the hard way and we cannot believe that there are people in the world who would treat an innocent woman so poorly over something as simple as her choice of dress.
“I love Kim Kardashian, she’s sexy but classy. I love wearing whatever she wears but I’m never distasteful, my hair and makeup are always done. Dressing up and doing my makeup makes me feel good about myself.”
Bella is your regular 33 year old, average, ordinary mom from Sydney, Australia….but her life does come with one unique twist that can sometimes attract negative attention. She’s a boutique owner who also works as a glamour model. She loves her fake tans, shiny eye shadow colors and prides herself on staying totally up to date on all of the latest trends.
“I’m not included in any of the mum’s groups or cliques. A lot of criticism is from social networks and I always get taunts online from younger people.”
She is a mother to three beautiful children and she is bullied on a consistent basis because of her unique appearance. Other parents do not appreciate her youthful style of dress and in our humble opinion, these are haters who definitely need to sit down. One of Bella’s role models when it comes to fashion is Kim Kardashian, as she appreciates Kim’s ability to find the perfect balance between sex appeal and class.
Parents have lobbed several cruel jokes her way. One parent used her photo to create a fake Craigslist escort ad, while another set of mothers refused to speak to her when she chaperoned a birthday party. Recently, one parent posted a photo of her in an innocent beige dress that went viral. Bella finally had enough of the bullying and took to Caters Real Life to speak out.
“People were commenting saying I had my boobs out and shouldn’t have worn that dress.”
She’d been accused of receiving plastic surgery in order to resemble a porn actress, but in reality, Bella simply wanted to restore her pre-pregnancy body. In her mind, being a mother is not about stifling every aspect of your self being. She let the haters know that her children love her just the way that she is and that she will never stop being herself…no matter what they have to say about her.
“I didn’t get plastic surgery to look like a porn star but because I’ve had three kids and my body totally deformed- I did it to be happy and feel confident with my body.
Being a mum doesn’t mean you have to give up your whole self being; I am trying to create awareness about that…
My children love me the way I am. If I was to change my appearance then I wouldn’t be their mum— I wouldn’t be me.”
Bella’s story is an inspiration to all of the mothers out there who feel as if they are forced into the boxes that society tries to put them in. Please share this awesome tale with all of the mothers in your life, so that they know you always have their back.
