GMA viewers claim Dr. Jennifer Ashton is out of touch. She made some comments on GMA3: What You Need to Know that rubbed them the wrong way. The 53-year-old talked about the health dangers that linger at nail salons. Find out what happened and why viewers are baffled over what she said.
Dr. Jennifer Ashton on health dangers behind mani-pedi
On a recent broadcast of Good Morning America, Dr. Jennifer Ashton spoke to fill-ins DeMarco Morgan and Rhiannon Ally. She talked about the health risks associated with getting a mani-pedi at a salon. Some of those dangers include fungal infections from the tools that weren’t properly cleaned and sanitized. Sometimes salons reuse the tools without sanitizing them.
“There are a lot of potential health issues at these nail salons,” Dr. Jennifer Ashton told her co-anchors. “You can get a manicure for $9, $8, $10… you could it yourself at home.”
Her comments left GMA viewers baffled. They argued that it was impossible to get a cheap manicure, especially with rising inflation costs. GMA3 posted the video on Instagram. Fans took to the comment section to react.
- “I haven’t seen a manicure for that cheap. That’s the cost of a bottle at best.”
- “This is so true, but a basic manicure is not $8, $10, or $12. They normally start at $32.00, if you’re lucky.”
- “She’s totally out of touch.”
Per OrlyBeauty.com, the average price for nail polish is around $10 but some start at $9. Per WeHeartThis.com, the average manicure cost around $20 to $25. If you want something special like French Tips or gel nails, you will have to pay within the $25 to $75 range. The costs for manicures and pedicures depend on the salon and other factors involved with the treatment.
Dr. Jennifer Ashton could be saying that you could get a cheap manicure by yourself at home instead.
GMA3 co-anchor under fire for her lavish lifestyle
This comes after fans slammed the healthcare professional for her lavish lifestyle. She’s got her share of backlash for constantly going missing from the morning show and taking luxe trips around the country. Dr. Jennifer Ashton went to Cabo San Lucas and Hawaii during the holiday season.
Earlier this month, she disappeared again when she went on a ski trip with her family. Some fans accused her of taking too many vacations. Not only that but the television personality has also been a repeat guest at many fancy dinners and soirees, including White House events.
Back in November 2022, Dr. Jennifer Ashton married Tom Warner in a New York City ceremony. The lavish occasion took place at the Harmonie Club. The couple was joined by their friends and family members. After their wedding, they traveled to Hawaii for their honeymoon.
