‘The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club’ co-stars make shocking revelations on ‘WWHL’ when they share that they had abortions as teenagers.
AceShowbiz -The Roe v. Wade overturn seemingly hit too close to home for “Real Housewives” stars Brandi Glanville and Jill Zarin. “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club” co-stars made shocking revelations when they shared that they had abortions as teenagers.
During their appearance on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” on Tuesday, June 28, the two shared their stories after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, which protected pregnant women’s right to choose to have abortions. “I’m horrified about what happened … with Roe v. Wade. I myself had an abortion when I was in my late teens,” Jill said.
“It was my choice, and I don’t know how my life would have been different today [had I kept the baby],” the 58-year-old “The Real Housewives of New York City” star added. Her 29-year-old daughter, Ally Shapiro, was standing behind her as the evening’s “WWHL” bartender.
Host Andy later asked Brandi whether she had ever had an abortion. “I did at 17,” “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” alum, who has sons 19-year-old Mason and 15-year-old Jake, admitted.
Andy then talked about Jill’s Instagram post in which she talked about her abortion in response to the Supreme Court’s decision, applauding her for being “really brave.” In the said Instagram Story post, Jill professed her sadness and disappointment in the five justices who voted to reverse Roe v. Wade.
“Today is one of the worst days of my life, on this planet, as a woman, as an American, as a human being, that men took away the right for us to choose what to do with our bodies,” she wrote. “I had an abortion when I was in my late teens, and my life would have been so dramatically affected.”
She concluded, “Who knows, I may have put it up for adoption and wondered my entire life, ‘Was it a mistake?’ “
