AceShowbiz - Heather Rae Young has had enough with false accusations directed to her. During her appearance on "Today", the "Selling Sunset" star set the record straight after being accused of preferring her son Tristan, whom she shares with husband Tarek El Moussa, to her stepkids.
In the Tuesday, June 6 episode, Heather explained why she sometimes posts photos of Tristan that don't also include Brayden and Taylor, Tarek's children with his ex-wife Christina El Moussa. "Taylor and Brayden are in school all day, and I'm home with Tristan. I can capture moments with Tristan easily," the 35-year-old said.
The realtor also noted that they share the kids in a 50/50 custody arrangement with Christina, so she's with Tristan more of the time. "They're also busy with sports and tutoring- they always have something going on. I blink, and it's 8 o'clock at night," the reality TV star continued. "So when we're all together, the last thing I'm doing is standing around taking photos with all three kids."
Heather went on to say that Taylor has become more aware of her appearance on her parents' social media accounts as she goes into her teen years. "She'll be like, 'I don't love my hair in that picture,' 'Please don't post that one,' " Heather revealed.
The episode also saw Heather discussing how it was like to be a working mom. "As a working mother, I need to be able to have help so that I can do the things that I need to do. I'm very proud of what I do, but I need help," she divulged. "I can't do everything. I'm not Superwoman, and I can't be in two places at one time."
"No one should get shamed for needing help," Heather added. "The mom guilt is already strong. I do have to leave Tristan - it's already hard enough as it is, and to get shamed on top of it for having a nanny? It's not okay."
