Haters, take a seat. When Gretchen Rossi posted this makeup-free selfie on September 9, she was not expecting the uproar of negative attention. So the Real Housewives of Orange County alum proved she’s more than just a pretty, made-up face and snapped back at those criticizing her appearance on social media.
In a response on Instagram, Gretchen made it clear that the negativity wasn’t going to affect her self-confidence and that she hopes to inspire other women to feel confident no matter what. “I’m comfortable in my own skin makeup or not, and I’m proud to show women it’s ok to be vulnerable and not perfect,” she wrote.
Of course, her fans on Twitter showed their support.
