    Selena Gomez’s Mom Came For Her Body Shamers

    Selena Gomez, her mother Mandy Teefey, and businessperson Danielle Pierson covered the latest issue of Entrepreneur magazine to announce their new mental health foundation, Wondermind. That’s nice, right? Well, for 45-year-old Mandy, things got kinda shitty on social media when the cover was released. She immediately received DMs shaming her for her recent weight gain.

    Selena Gomez, her mother Mandy Teefey, and businessperson Danielle Pierson covered the latest issue of Entrepreneur magazine to announce their new mental health foundation, Wondermind. That’s nice, right? Well, for 45-year-old Mandy, things got kinda shitty on social media when the cover was released. She immediately received DMs shaming her for her recent weight gain. Mandy posted a screenshot of one DM that was “a polite offer instead of the name calling,” and wrote that the reason her body has changed is because she almost died from double pneumonia. The infection caused a 60 pound weight gain plus inflammation. Wait, wait, wait. You can get double pneumonia?! Jesus!

    In the caption Mandy writes that she’d only been out of the hospital for three-and-a-half weeks when she posed for the Entrepreneur cover:

    I wasn’t ever going to discuss this, but I knew when the Entrepreneur cover came out comments on my weight were going to be DM’d to me. I just posted a polite offer instead of the name calling. But, I was out of the hospital for maybe 3 1/2 weeks from double pneumonia. I was told I had days to live.

    I had miracle Drs and love from my family and friends to keep me going. I fought. The Drs fought and I was one of the few who made it out. I gained 60lbs plus inflammation from the infection. I never gave up on myself or Wondermind coming to reality. I had zero business to be at a photo shoot.

    So, yesterday was a beautiful day for many reasons filled with personal attacks. I’m healthy and I will work on myself at my pace. It’s a miracle I am here and could careless if that means I’m a 16 instead of an 8. Much love to everyone. Let’s Wondermind!!! XO 

    Here’s the Instagram post. Mandy notes that the second picture is of her when doctors told her she only had two days to live, and the third one is from the day she was released:

    And here’s the ladies posing for the magazine and talking about their own battles with mental health and Wondermind:

    Mandy Teefey (LOVE the last name by the way, very reminiscent of cute kitten teeth) looks good to me. But damn, can’t the Gomez-Teefey crew catch a break? 29-year-old Selena suffers from lupus and got a kidney transplant back in 2017. Both her and her mother have struggled with their mental health. Then there was the disease that plagued them on-and-off from 2010 to 2018: Justin Drew Bieber (aka Biebz Syndrome). Luckily, both women have made a full recovery from that last one! Phew.
