#BlackInkCHI: Bella Isn’t Here For The “Diapers” Jokes
Sometimes fans of reality television forget that the folks acting out their “despair” are getting PAID.
This season Bella from “Black Ink Chicago” deals with misogyny and a messy work environment, eventually calling it quits on tv. Bella disclaimed in a scene that she could “barely afford diapers” after making the rash decision, even though she didn’t regret it. This has twitter trying to drag the mother for deciding to leave her toxic workplace.
But does this mean she’s actually neglectful? This Twitter user tried it….and Bella had THIS to say:
We get paid to be on a show. I’m pretty sure my daughter has [redacted] more money than you.
Interesting that folks forget she’s getting tv checks, and not ACTUALLY unemployed. Here’s a deleted scene from last night’s #BlackInkCHI where Bella tries her chops at bartending.
Do you think Bella putting her financial struggle on tv was the “right” thing to do?
