“Mel has literally no family left, nobody to assist should anything happen to me. We are not living in 1955. Women are not worth less when children are not what they desire. I am taken aback by the baby-shaming on the show.”

Peet further elaborated on his background as a divorce lawyer who has defended women against abusive men for 17 years. He mentioned his reapplication to practice law after being wrongfully prosecuted for nearly 15 years.

Nonku Williams’ Silence

As of now, Nonku Williams has not made any public comments regarding the legal action taken against her.

Public Reaction

The public reaction on social media has been mixed. One Instagram user defended Melany’s right to respond to the allegations:

“Mel has a right to defend herself. If she keeps quiet, people will still demand answers from her. Your name carries your dignity, you have to defend it. Especially when you are in business and you are also a public figure.”

Another user offered words of encouragement:

“Go get them, Mel! You are amazing, you don’t need to explain yourself to anyone.”

However, some expressed skepticism about Melany’s frequent defenses:

“Your constant need to defend yourself may allude to a level of truth to their speculations. People who are constantly defensive have a lot to hide, is it why you’re constantly on the edge?”
