The photo was part of a promotion for swimwear line L*Space by Monica Wise. And it made some commenters dive off the deep end, hurling criticism at the reality TV personality, who is currently undergoing a divorce from her husband and "Flip or Flop" co-star, Tarek El Moussa.
"That is completely inappropriate! I am done with your show you are not making good mother choices," one detractor wrote.
DATE NIGHT!!! Just watched the movie "Wonder" and it was honestly an amazing movie. It reminded me that it doesn't matter who we are or what we do or what we have. At the end of the day we may be "different" yet the same. Well FOLKS..I truly enjoyed date night with my loves. Has anyone seen this movie???...You should all go out and do the same❤️❤️❤️

Huge shout out to my girl right here @cazeb ... My best friend - turned publicist extraordinaire - has been by my side since we were 14 years old ... she has always supported me and had my best interest at heart- and during this difficult time she has been a ray of positivity and such a role model ... Cassie you are the best friend anyone could ask for and I am so lucky to have you in my life. Here's to always laughing together and finding joy in every hardship ... C&C ❤
I've never met a group of more positive, fun-loving, funny... all around amazing guys... filming 7 seasons of #FlipOrFlop has been a breeze because of them. I ❤️ each and every one of you. @hgtv
#ThursdayVibes ✨ #nofilter and happy 😉
