REAL Housewives Of Cheshire star Dawn Ward broke down in tears on Loose Women today as she clashed with the panel about allowing her daughters to have boob jobs.
The reality star was on the ITV chat show to discuss her daughters Darby, 21, and 19-year-old Taylor’s cosmetic surgery but she was in tears by the end of the show.
Dawn initially explained her daughters’ decisions to go under the knife but broke down in tears when Darby defended her mother’s parenting skills.
“Everything we do, we do as a family, they come to me for advice. They’re very mature, they’re strong women. Both of them separately said they weren’t happy with their boobs,” she explained.
Jane Moore asked her if she thought about why her daughters were unhappy with their bodies and she replied: “Not at all, they’re very level headed girls.
“Taylor’s got one breast two sizes smaller than the other and she’s quite body conscious in bikinis and felt unhappy with the way they looked.
“Darby didn’t have a lot of boob, she was quite flat chested and wanted to have a little bit more.”
Saira Khan then pointed out: “Your daughters have been brought up around glamorous women, you’re very glamorous yourself, do you think it’s normalisation?”
Dawn defended herself saying no: “No, every person is an individual, what’s right for one of my girls might not be right for the other.
“By 21 I was married with Darby and I had my boob job at that age and that’s the only cosmetic surgery I’ve ever had.
“We sat down as a family and discussed it off camera. I want to be a supportive parent so we went to get the right advice and got the best surgeon.
“If at any point the surgeon had said ‘this is a risk’ we wouldn’t have done it and I let my girls ask all the questions.
“I look at them and think they look great but they’re adults and they might not feel like that.
“They’ve both had their lips done, they didn’t need their lips doing
Saira then quizzed her: “But where does it stop though? They’re 21 and they’ve had fillers and a boob job – I’m not making a judgement but…”
Ruth then asked Dawn’s daughter Darby about the surgery and she told the panel: “I put on a lot of weight and when I lost weight, I lost my boobs. I felt so conscious about it in bikinis and I knew I wanted to get it done. My mum supported my decision and I wanted her there by my side.”
Viewers at home were divided with some saying the interview was “harsh” while others though the panel were right to question her decisions.
One wrote: “@loosewomen @dawnward4 Dawn is being such a good Mum, I was 19 when I had breast augmentation and my Mum was SO supportive. ?? #LooseWomen”.
My heart is really starting to go out to @dawnward4 .. It seems like everyone is bullying her all the time about everything. She is being a bloody good mum and supporting her ADULT daughter and letting her make her own decisions JUST LEAVE HER ALONE #RHOCheshire#LooseWomen

Dunno who this Dawn woman is but it’s silly that she’s getting a bashing by others over a decision that she’s not even making. #Loosewomen

Another said: “@dawnward4 you done well putting up with the @loosewomen lot @IamSairaKhan and @janem were harsh on you x #LooseWomen”.
A third added: “At that age you can’t be told what to do! Think it’s good @dawnward4 daughters had a good enough relationship to go to her #LooseWomen”.
