Former Big Brother Naija Housemate Erica Nlewedim has come under fire over a statement which social media users termed insensitive to married women.
In a post shared on the microblogging platform, Twitter, Erica said she work up wondering how long she would continue working on a million things as a single lady.
Erica further questioned when she would probably rest and enjoy her life without working on anything like married women.
The reality star insinuated that because most housewives do not work, little wonder they are always attractive to some people.
She wrote: I woke up yesterday thinking, is this how I’m going to be working on million things forever? When will I get to just chill and enjoy? I now understand why being a housewife is attractive to some people.
Erica’s statement did not sit well with many netizens as they dragged her for downgrading married women and described the idea as insensitive.

Most housewives work tirelessly – pregnant, caring for children, school runs, washing clothes, going to the market, caring for the whole family. Assisting children with scho work. Cleaning the house and some are still battered by their husbands regularly. How is these chilling and enjoying. How many women housewives have help except celebrities like you. Please choose your words next time.
