It’s hard to bring your life out into the open – especially for a parent like Christina Anstead. The recently divorced mother of three is constantly under the microscope, and it can’t be easy. That’s probably why the Flip of Flop host decided to stand up for herself on social media (via Life & Style). What’s more, this time it was about her children, and that’s something Christina Anstead just couldn’t keep up and say anything about.
The HGTV star responded to recent criticism in an Instagram post. She started her long and heartfelt message with an echo of what most of us felt in 2020. “This year has been incredibly isolating. Activities such as church, travel, dinner, movies, sports – cancelled.
No more seeing my friends smiling faces on set (all covered in masks) it all feels like s**t,” Christina Anstead wrote as a caption to a selfie. She added, “So many changes for so many people. So despite what you see on Instagram, most people are struggling.

According to Christina Anstead, she is often told, “You must be an absent mother because you are not with your children. The new single mother quickly shot down this criticism and wrote, “I hardly post anymore…. and I don’t want to post my kids every day to make a contest about who’s a better parent.” Of course, Christina Anstead talks about how she shares her children Taylor and Brayden with her ex-husband Tarek El Moussa, and her son Hudson with her estranged husband Ant Anstead.
“This doesn’t mean I’m not with my children. It means the opposite. I am with them. I am with them.” Christina Anstead answered her critics and added these harsh words. “So stop being ashamed of people by parents, stop picking sides when there is no side to choose.
The empowering post ended with Christina Anstead reminding people that on Instagram, we have to remember what we sometimes see are fake smiles and filters. “I’m also guilty of pretending. We’re all struggling. Some of us are just better at ‘masking’ it.”
