Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin’s daughter, Amelia Gray, is in the news about her IG account where she has 786,000 followers. First of all Amelia opened up about her eating disorder on RHOBH a season or two ago. She had anxiety issues that led her to leave college and move home. In my opinion, Instagram “modeling” is the very last thing she should be doing for her mental health. But what do I know? The photo above is a rare one where she is wearing actual clothes. And yet, it is one of her most controversial.
Amelia Gray has removed all the comments on this photo, but not the photo itself. She received a lot of backlash for darkening her skin and “attempting to look black.” The commenters used the term “blackfishing” to claim that she is deliberately trying to look black with her much darker skin and braided hair In response Amelia stated, “”I recently went on vacation in the sun, and with my Italian heritage I tan very easily. There is no self tanner involved. Or intention of looking darker than my own natural skin color.”
There are photos of her at the beach about five weeks ago. There are several in between where her skin is significantly lighter. She was also recently in Miami with her boyfriend Scott Disick. Here is another picture from her IG for comparison. What do you think? Are people making a big deal about nothing? Is it a tan? Or was she purposely attempting to look black? Either way, despite her many sponsorships on the Gram, it cannot possibly be a good place for her. That I know for sure.
