Before they were famous models, Gigi and Bella Hadid played with their mother on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – and Bravo will not let their reality show roots be forgotten.
To the delight of their fans, the network shared a mashup of sisters' scenes about the series earlier this month, including exciting footage of their mother, Yolanda Hadid (formerly Foster), scolds dietary advice and discouraged Gigi from playing volleyball because it will give her & # 39; bulky & # 39; to make.
& # 39; Volleyball is a very masculine sport. Modeling a very feminine thing, & # 39; Yolanda tells the then 17-year-old during dinner for her family in the season three episode that aired in 2012.

& # 39; You can have a night that you are bad, anyway, & # 39; she says to Gigi. & # 39; Then you have to go on a diet again, because in Paris and Milan they find the girls just a tad on the poor side. & # 39;

& # 39; This is the hardest thing to be on our diet & # 39 ;, she tells her daughter while cutting her graduation cake.
& # 39; I need some luck, & # 39; says Gigi, but Yolanda does not seem convinced by her logic.

The following scene shows Yolanda bringing Gigi to her first apartment in New York City. While Gigi studied criminal psychology at The New School in the fall of 2013, her mother wasn't really on board.
& # 39; I always felt she would take a year off and just work and earn as much money as possible, and she didn't want that, & # 39; Yolanda tells the camera.

thoughts: The clips also had some people feeling bad for Gigi and Bella because of the way Yolanda followed their diet and pushed them & # 39; in modeling at the start of their career
Bella wanted to concentrate on modeling from the very beginning, but their mother was only willing to let her quit school if she threw six figures in the cupboard.
In the final scene in the clip, Yolanda and her daughters hang out in Gigi's apartment and help Bella take photos for her model portfolio.
& # 39; They are the black swan and the white swan, and of course, as sisters grow old, there will always be competition, but Bella will do it her way, & # 39; Yolanda says about her daughters.
& # 39; If someone is looking for a brunette with blue eyes, Gigi will not get the job. If they are looking for a completely American girl, they are not going to hire Bella, & she adds.
# I mean, it's just a big competitive company. If it is meant for them, they will survive in it and be successful. & # 39;
The video has been viewed more than 3.5 million times and some people went in the comments to show how different Bella looks at the age of 22 than when she was 16 years old.
& # 39; I still don't understand how Bella influences an entire generation as a model with a complete face of an operation and nobody talks about it, "someone wrote, while someone else said: & # 39; Bella & # 39; s face is completely different. & # 39;
All adults: many people pointed out that Bella looks completely different as a teenager than at the age of 22

Since Bella started her modeling career in 2013, rumors have circulated that she has undergone a nose job and other physical improvements, but she has strongly denied the allegations.
The clips also made some people feel bad for Gigi and Bella because of the way Yolanda followed their diet and pushed & # 39; them in modeling at the start of their career.
& # 39; Oh my god her mother is scary … I would run away if I were Gigi & # 39 ;, one person said while someone else admitted: & # 39; I never really cared about Gigi or Bella, but after seeing this … I feel so bad for them. & # 39;
& # 39; Wait, this really makes me sad … as if I'd have such a terrible self-esteem if my mother treated me that way, & # 39; someone else wrote.
Gigi and Bella are now two of the most famous models in the world, and their younger brother Anwar, 19, is also a catwalk star.
Their mother's fans defended her behavior and emphasized that she was just being honest with them about how the modeling industry works.
& # 39; If she didn't push, nothing would have turned out the way it did! & # 39; someone noted, while another person praised her upbringing style.
& # 39; Good to push her child. Now they are all successful, & the fan wrote.
