Denise Van Outen took to her Twitter page yesterday after seeing new mum Natalie Cassidy parading her new baby, Eliza on television, despite the ex-Eastenders actress criticising DVO for being a working mum.
When Denise headed back to work weeks after welcoming baby Betsy with husband Lee Mead, the then pregnant Natalie wasn’t impressed, saying being a mum should be her job, not television work.
So when Denise saw Natalie pop up with baby Eliza on Lorraine Kelly’s TV show just a few weeks after giving birth to promote her new reality show, she wasn’t happy. DVO took to her Twitter page to really vent some spleen.
“Natalie Cassidy criticised me for going back to work after having Betsy. Natalie’s on Lorraine’s show now promoting her reality pregnancy/new mum show. Isn’t that work?” tweeted the former Big Breakfast host.
“She said she did the show for money, so yes, that is work. Pot calling! We put our family picture out to press to raise money for Great Ormond street, she did a family shot and put the money in her pocket.”
Finally, with a sly dig at Natalie’s former Eastenders character, Sonia Jackson, Denise signed off with, “She can stick her trumpet where the sun don’t shine…hee hee!”
What do you make of all this? Was Natalie wrong to criticise Denise in the first place or should Denise have taken the high road and not commented back? Share your thoughts below…
