Rachel, who married her fiancé Joel Burdick last year, is already the subject of a massive social media backlash.
She recently tweeted about being a “slut” and a “bitch” after a video surfaced of her in the shower with Joel.
She was also recently kicked off of The View, where she had a role in a new show called “Tiffany” starring Kate Upton and Ryan Seacrest.
Rachel’s mother has since come out in support of her, saying the “torture and sexual assault” she experienced in the ’80s was “never acceptable.”
Now, her mother-in-law has come out and said that she was wrong to publicly shame her daughter for her sexuality.
Rachel is pictured here in a picture with Joel in the early 2000s.
