The blonde who fooled everyone with her age.

Baywatch actress Donna D’Errico, 54, responded to criticism about her wearing a bikini, stating, “I can wear and do whatever I want.” She addressed women who called her “too old” and “desperate,” sharing a picture on Instagram in a light pink bikini. In the comments, supporters praised her confidence and dismissed the negativity. One fan said, “Donna, you can wear and look absolutely phenomenal in a bikini. Don’t let those jealous ones bother you even a bit.”

D’Errico is not alone in facing age-related swimsuit criticism. Model Paulina Porizkova, 57, previously shared hateful comments on her bikini photos, highlighting the double standard that older men are seen as distinguished while older women face criticism. Porizkova expressed, “To perceive beauty, you have to be able to see. That’s why I believe we become more beautiful with age. There is no such thing as ugly and old. Just nearsighted and ignorant.”

These responses from D’Errico and Porizkova reflect a broader societal issue where women are judged for their appearance based on age. The support they receive underscores a growing movement towards body positivity and challenging age-related stereotypes.
