Lets face it, anytime anyone appears on reality TV, rarely do they walk away without all their secrets being exposed. Some people are not prepared to deal with aftermath of having their whole life displayed on tv for all of America to see. Amanda Stanton from the Bachelor franchise is no different.
The fresh-faced mother of two, first appeared on Ben Higgins season of the Bachelor. After introducing her two children to Ben, he decided he was not ready for all the responsibility that came along with a single mother. Amanda was devastated but picked the pieces back up and decided to give love another try on the Bachelor spinoff, Bachelor in Paradise. And she did find love in the form of Josh Murray. Not one of my favorites but hey Amanda seems pretty in love with him so who are we to judge? Anyways, it seemed like a happy ending had by all expect Amanda’s ex- husband Nick Buonfiglio.
Nick has been notorious for running to the media about Amanda since her first appearance on The Bachelor. He spoke with US Weekly about the latest issue he has with Amanda which is about the custody of their two girls. He filed papers earlier this month asking for 50/50 custody of the girls along with a reduction in child support. He also believes that her behavior on the show has caused undue harm to the children. “[Amanda] been scrutinized for how she has acted by hundreds of thousands of fans, and it has put my daughters in tons of media attention, which I believe is causing harm,” It is fascinating that he apparently doesn’t find talking about the girl’s mother to anyone that will pay him detrimental to the children.
Amanda, decided to fire back at Nick for spreading private family information to the public. She wrote on her blog, ““I was trying to lose the 40 pounds I gained during pregnancy, still breastfeeding and throwing a pity party for myself while living in a family friend’s house in Malibu. Meanwhile, their father was dating multiple girls he was meeting on Tinder, became a regular at the local bars and was going on trips to Vegas with his friends every other weekend. I remember thinking it was so unfair that he could just break up our family and then go back to living his life the way he did pre-children while my world completely revolved around them.”
This time we are going to side with Amanda. Nick seems like a jealous little baby who is hell bent on trying to make Amanda look like a bad mom. He seems to take joy in ripping her apart to the media. We don’t blame Amanda for striking back. We hope to see Amanda truly find happiness and we wish her the best on this custody battle.
