A MUM-of-thee who wears her PJs on the school run said people often call her "disgusting" and "dirty" and automatically assume she's a lazy mum who doesn't work.

People were "outraged" when Jodie Palmer, 34, posed in her nightwear on the way to school before sharing the snap online.

The post sparked a heated debate with thousands of comments from strangers who called her "lazy," "disgusting" and even "dirty.


But she claims the only people who should be ashamed are those judging her - and she doesn't can what people think.

The mum hit back at those who flooded her page with abuse saying that wearing her pyjamas to school doesn’t make her a bad mum, but in fact a good mum.

The full time, self employed mum said: “Yes, I am pyjama mum and yes, I dropped my children at school in my pyjamas and unbrushed hair.

“I am not a bad mum because I wore my pyjamas – I wore my pyjamas because I’m trying to be a good one.”

Jodie explained that after a rough night with her one year old, she woke up late and didn’t have time to get dressed.

She said: “People might look at me and just assume I’m lazy or have no pride in myself or I’m a bad example to the kids.

“But I am the complete opposite. I had been up pretty much all night with my one year old son. I had less than a couple of hours broken sleep.

“But I still got up, got my kids ready for school and got them to school on time.

"I just didn’t have time for me, but that’s ok because my priority is them, not how I look to strangers.

“My priority is my children, I can sort myself later. They need to be washed, dressed, presentable and fed."

She went on to say that what she looks like is the "last thing on her mind", and that her kids don't get embarrassed because they "don't notice".

She also said its the "grown adults that have a problem" and not the kids, and is shocked by the amount of abuse she received online.

Jodie, who also has 10-year-old twins, is self-employed and works two jobs, so was angry when people assumed she doesn't work.

She said: “I am self employed, working two jobs as a children's entertainer and I'm a leader with Avon but people automatically assume I’m on benefits and so what if I was? I was called a Universal Credit scummy mummy and a scrounger and it couldn’t be further from the truth but people are so quick to judge when it’s none of their business.

"Since when is being a full time mum something to be ashamed of and used as an critical comment online?

“I just wish people didn’t judge strangers who are juggling a lot and trying to do the best they can for their family.”

While she doesn't care what strangers think, she did admit that some comments were "cruel".

She hopes adults will think and be less judgemental in the future.

She said: “Some of the comments were so unnecessary and so cruel. It doesn’t affect you so why do people feel the need to judge? People called me dirty.

“The next time you see a mum in her pyjamas, why not smile at her instead of judging her because she is probably having a really hard time, but she has made sure her kids are at school and isn’t that what’s important?"

Jodie dreams to one day work for her Church and she is starting an internship later this year which she plans to juggle around her existing jobs and her three children.

The busy mum believes that people need to be kinder and less judgemental of everyone – especially working mums.

The next time you see a mum in her pyjamas, why not smile at her instead of judging her because she is probably having a really hard time, but she has made sure her kids are at school and isn’t that what’s important.

Jodie Palmer

She said: “I want mums who might be struggling to know their best is good enough."

Jodie has been accused of doing it for attention and a publicity stunt, but she insists it was a decision made that morning because of the sleepless night.

"The post wasn’t about showing people my pyjamas, it was a post to empower myself and other parents who have days when they are struggling, to say you are enough.

“I want to make the point that we don’t know if people are having a bad day, we don’t know their circumstances, so what happened to be kind? No one is better than anyone else really.

“I was overwhelmed by the negative reactions but I am strong enough to shrug it off, my biggest concern is the mum who is barely holding it all together. What if someone made those comments about a mum who is struggling and it was the final straw?”

Jodie has stood by her decision and added: “We all have bad days and I decided to post my photo because it shows other mums that it is ok to have bad days, we still put our kids first.”

“We should be praising mums who are juggling more than ever these days. We should not be shaming mums who are just trying to do their best.”

RHONJ fans think Andy Cohen ‘did Teresa Giudice dirty’ after he posts ‘unflattering’ behind-the-scenes photo of her

RHONJ fans were left questioning Bravo boss Andy Cohen’s motives after he posted an unflattering photo of Teresa Giudice.

Taking to his Instagram Stories, 50-year-old Andy shared a series of pictures and videos from a backstage dressing room at BravoCon in New York.

One showed a bunch of Housewives from the various different franchises, including RHOBH’s Kyle Richards, 53, and Garcelle Beauvais, 55, RHOP’s Karen Hunger, 59, and Gizelle Bryant, 51, RHOM’s Alexia Nepola, 55, and RHOA’s Kenya Moore, 51.

Seated at the bottom right was RHONJ’s Teresa, 49, wearing a gorgeous all-black outfit with silver hooped earrings.

Despite her glamorous get-up, many fans noticed that her eyes were closed during the photo.

It left Bravo fanatics why the Real Housewives Executive Producer would choose to post this picture to his Instagram Stories.

Taking to Reddit, one fan asked: “Why did Andy do Teresa like this?”

A second agreed: “I was about to say these exact same words.”

A third added: “Her outfit is great it’s just funny that Andy posted a photo where everyone but her is looking.”

Another suggested: “He's not over the push from the reunion years ago.”

The comment referred to a scene from the RHONJ season two reunion, when Teresa pushed the Bravo boss over as he tried to intervene in an altercation between her and Danielle Staub.

The bizarre photo selection from Andy comes ahead of the season 12 reunion finale.

The third and final installment will land on viewers’ screens this Tuesday and is expected to be highly dramatic.

The Sun previously exclusively reported that Gia Giudice, Teresa’s 21-year-old daughter, will make an appearance on set.


The previous two reunion episodes saw Teresa fight with her brother, 42-year-old Joe Gorga.

During part one, he stormed off the set and claimed he had quit the show after his sister called him a “b***h boy”.

On top of her fight with Joe, Teresa also left his wife Melissa fighting back tears.

Teresa hurt her sister-in-law by saying that she won’t be a bridesmaid at her wedding because the two “aren’t close.”

The reunion turned into a screaming match at times, as viewers took to Twitter to slam Teresa as "selfish” and “despicable”.


Season 12 has been tough for the OG cast member, who has had beef with almost every other housewife throughout the fifteen episodes so far.

She most contentiously feuded with Margaret Josephs, whom she accused of speaking to bloggers about her husband-to-be Luis Ruelas’ past.

Luis, 46, has faced allegations that he was abusive toward his former fiancée.

The Sun previously revealed that the businessman was accused of “controlling and abusive” behavior by an ex, from when he proposed to her in February 2019, to October 2019.

Despite the swirling controversy, Teresa has stayed loyal to her man and has been keen to protect what she describes as their “love bubble.”

The two are set to tie the knot this summer, although no date has been officially announced yet.
