Amanda Stanton responded to backlash after she drove from her home in California to Arizona for a hair appointment.
The contestant from the 20th season of “The Bachelor,” who went on to appear on “Bachelor in Paradise,” had documented on her verified Instagram account traveling with her 8-year-old daughter Kinsley to a Arizona hair salon.
“Drove very very far to get my hair done & may have peed on the side of a dirt road because I’m scared to use public restrooms,” she wrote in a posting on her Instagram stories. “But it was worth it.”
In another posting, the mother of two wrote that she had been staying home since March 14 and hadn’t even ventured to the grocery store.
“I hadn’t had my hair done since January and my hair stylist who I have been going to for years JUST opened her salon,” she wrote. “I thought I’d rather go when she JUST opened than later when more people had been there.”
