Fans of GENERAL HOSPITAL might be interested to know that the glasses that Kim Nero were sporting in recent episodes are actually those of actress Tamara Braun herself! The revelation came following the Aug. 2 episode where many fans made negative comments about the eyewear online, with one fan tweeting at the actress to ask what was up with the “hideous” glasses, calling them “gross” and suggesting she get rid of them.
The tweet has since been deleted, but Braun’s response remains where she defends herself and her eyewear. “My glasses are awesome, not gross,” she declared. “They are my personal ones and I had a problem with my eye and couldn’t wear my contacts. Sorry it bothered you so.”
GH fans weren’t the only ones to jump to the actress’ defense against those complaining about her glasses — co-star Laura Wright tweeted: “I loved them… and you!” And eyeglass retailer Warby Parker chimed in to declare: “We love Winston on you!”
Braun informed her curious fans that her glasses are the “Winston” style from Warby Parker, adding: “Love my nerd specs! Look cute and help me see. Oh, and Warby Parker donates a pair of glasses to a person in need with every purchase made.”
The anonymity of the Internet can embolden people to post things that they wouldn’t normally say to someone’s face, but in response to rude comments from some viewers, Braun took the high road. In fact, she urged her fans to do the same. “Okay, I appreciate the support my loving fans,” she tweeted, “but let’s remember that she doesn’t deserve to be called names. Again, I truly appreciate your support. #bekind #belove #grateful”
