Bethenny Frankel posted a photo of herself looking alarmingly thin on Instagram. The reality star was promoting her new book “Skinny Girl Cocktails.” The photo quickly circulated in the media, provoking both concern and criticism among fans. The image has since been taken down from her social media account. Read on for further details.
One Facebook user said: “So I love love love Bethenny but I say this in the nicest way…she looks thin in an unhealthy way. I know she is tiny but compared to like her main pic this pic is a bit concerning.” Meanwhile, another took a jab at the reality star: “How about a rebrand? No more skinnygirl, how about healthygirl?”
Frankel, 43, also got criticized for her weight in July of this year, when she posted a photo showing that she was thin enough to fit into her four-year-old daughter's Hello Kitty pajamas.
However, Frankel defended herself and denied that she had weight issues. She said
“The way that my body was, it made me look like I was a skeleton and it became this whole Internet thing yesterday, that I’m anorexic and all this crazy stuff,” said Frankel on Life and Style.
The TV personality started out as a production assistant in the ‘90s teen show “Saved by the Bell” and made a few appearances in film. She rose to fame as a contestant on Donald Trump's “The Apprentice.” She went on to star in “Real Housewives of New York City” on Bravo but quit the show in 2010. A spin-off series called “Bethenny Getting Married” followed, which documented her wedding and the birth of her daughter, Bryn. She also had an eponymous talk show, which got cancelled after one season.
Frankel has since expanded to publishing and fitness. She authored four self-help books and launched low calorie drinks under the “Skinny Girl” franchise. She also produced an exercise DVD.
She recently announced that she will be returning to “Real Housewives of New York City” for Season 7.
