Many of the HGTV star’s fans also quickly jumped to her defense after the controversy erupted. “I honestly don’t watch the show but I came here after reading about the ‘photo’ expecting to see some wretched mom and what I see is a happy girl and her puppy and her mom is cool enough to play matchy matchy!” one user commented. “This is great! You guys post 80 more!!! Moms wear bikinis ? too!”

Added another: “Great picture and I love your cute little French bulldog! This is definitely not inappropriate I think it’s awesome don’t pay attention to the haters!”

On Wednesday, El Moussa also made headlines for a different reason: A source confirmed to Us Weekly that she and hockey player Nate Thompson are currently dating.

“She’s very into him and it’s super new,” the source told Us. El Moussa’s rep, Cassandra Zebisch, told Us that the pair are “just friends.”
