Real Housewives of Melbourne star Cherry Dipietrantonio defends stay-at-home mums and says there’s nothing wrong with being supported by a wealthy husband
Real Housewives of Melbourne star Cherry Dipietrantonio has hit back at critics of homemakers and stay-at-home mums.
In a lengthy post to Instagram, the aspiring wellness guru said she was tired of the constant digs about women who choose not to pursue professional careers.
‘There have been a few digs floating around about “just being a Housewife” and living a life amounting to nothing more than being “supported by wealthy husbands”,’ she wrote.
Speaking out: Real Housewives of Melbourne star Cherry Dipietrantonio has hit back at critics of homemakers and stay-at-home mums in a fiery Instagram post
‘Can we please take a moment to recognise that women choosing to stay home and nuture their children, putting their own dreams on hold to be the baby feeder, school dropper-offer, lunch maker, snot wiper, meal provider, etc…should not be disregarded and seen to be worthless or without ambition,’ she continued.
‘On the contrary, I personally have always been filled with passion to succeed by my own merits.
‘However, sometimes life takes a different turn and we make choices to suit our own path. No regrets, just a solid albeit chaotic family, amazing memories, a few ironed-out wrinkles and plenty more years ahead.’

‘I’m not exactly dealing with the biggest brains here. They’re not special, they’re just your average old, run of the mill, common or garden variety b****es,’ Anjali said.
‘I have achieved more than most of them, and what most of them ever will.
‘Most of them are just these empty, vacuous airheads who don’t have anything in their lives except money from whoever they married.’
