For most socialites their racy photos online earned them likes, and followers on social media but for some the regrets are painful reminders of the life they lived.
Vera Sidika would be considered the ‘mother’ of socialites. She came to the limelight in 2012 after featuring in the song ‘You Guy’ by P-Unit.
After Vera came Huddah Monroe, Bridget Achieng, Risper Faith, Judy Anyango aka Jubolicious whose attempts at being a socialite failed miserably.
Vera however changed from being the dark-skinned girl next door to light skin, voluptuous lady thanks to surgery.
Apart from lightening her skin Vera enhanced other areas of her body. Speaking in a past interview Vera revealed that she regrets doing a bVVb job.
I paid a lot for the procedure.
Yes, it’s more expensive but worth it because you get qualified and certified surgeons with over 20 years’ experience.
Still, I am not proud of that decision anymore. Today, I regret the job.
In fact, I even want to get rid of them, all of you ladies rushing to Miami for surgery should learn to love yourselves.
If you must, Miami is not the place.
Hustle harder and go to Beverly Hills,”
Huddah has also in the past made her regrets clear, one of them being going for a similar job.”
The socialite recalled how she went into depression after being ridiculed for her small chest during her participation in the Big Brother Africa reality show in 2013.
The videos of her chest in a shower scene at the show went viral.
Huddah said she ended up going under the knife to transfer fat from her behind to her chest so as to increase them in size.
“This is when I didn’t have tits, I succumbed to the pressure of society because I was under depression due to the videos of me in Big brother shower hour.
I wouldn’t tell anyone to do the same!
It’s still natural coz it’s my own fat, NO silicone but I will never advice anyone to go under the knife coz of what people think about their bodies.
Never make irrational decisions, wait until you are mature enough.
I was naive , young and stupid at that time. Love yourself! Experience is the best teacher! Learn some of these things from me…#THROWback “
I regret all the nonsense.
All the social media drama and that is why I don’t do it anymore,”
Huddah however is not the only socialite who has ever done things she regrets.
Former Nairobi D actress Bridget Achieng has had her fair share of regrets with the major one being the fear that her son might grow up and see her pictures.
Bridget had in an interview with BBC said that she used to hang out with older men for money something she greatly regrets.
At 25 years old, Bridget decided to try being a socialite and her life changed. Rich men would slide into her DM for her services and at the right price she would give in.
“I tried (the trade), I wouldn’t say I didn’t try.
You are a desperate girl looking for money and you are getting a guy who wants to give you like ten thousand dollar just to go visit him Dubai or wherever and he is willing to dash you 10,000$ (Ksh 1,000,000).
Ten thousand dollars some people have never seen 10 thousand dollars in their life man.
You just need to look pretty and get your 10,000 dollars and get on that flight and do what you have to do,’’ she narrated.
Bridget said she did because she was desperate
It’s something I tried when I was at my desperate moment. I had to do it to just get back up. It’s not something any woman should be proud of doing,’
Noti Flow may not be a socialite but she is forever sharing photos on her social media platform.
The Nairobi D actress may not be a socialite but she has on a few occasions posted on her social media.
Sasha may not have regrets but going by her caption she actually feels like her body is goals for other women hence the need to flaunt it.
WHEN I SAY #BODYGoAL 👀💪 DONT ARGUE WITH ME PLISS 😏 ! COZ IT’S YOUR NI**A’S FAVOURITE MEAL 😋😋😋😋
We talked to a few men on whether they would date such a woman and below are their responses
I cannot marry such a woman.
*Jerry also added that he would never marry such a woman
There is no pride in marrying a woman who constantly posts photos.
Every one knows how she looks from the inside so she is no longer private but public property.
Another added provided she is not posting him he is good with whatever she posts.
‘If she has the qualities I am looking for in a woman, I would marry her provided she does not post photos of me or the kids.’
Would you marry a socialite or a woman who constantly posts photos on social media?
