3. How one reality star turned the words of haters into an amazing Halloween costume

They say never to read the comments. But for Real Housewives of Orange County star Emily Simpson, she found a way to make Halloween magic with the negative words used against her.

Model and body-positive advocate, Kate Wasley, took to Instagram to demonstrate that what we see in the media isn’t always the reality.
