Bethenny Frankel posted another controversial photo on her Instagram account this week holding her book, Skinnygirl Cocktails. What shocked people about this photo was how thin and unhealthy the RHONY star looked and now Frankel is firing back at her critics.
In a new interview with Elvis Duran, Bethenny said that anyone that thinks that she looks unhealthy is “crazy.”
“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,” Bethenny said on the show.
“…In some circumstances you do [have to be careful] but if I start filtering myself and being so careful walking on eggshells with everything I say or post, I won’t even be me or be on this radio show or on that television show, or as successful as I am,” she continued. “So this is who I am, and sometimes you make mistakes!”
Bethenny also discussed how she is able to be herself on a reality TV show rather than hosting a talk show.
“I thought it has my name, I can just be myself and I can say whatever I want. But it really wasn’t like that. It’s very, very structured. You’re very corralled, you’re very handled, and you really are directing traffic at every moment… I really did not appreciate my experience on reality TV, until I did a talk show,” Bethenny said.
Frankel will return to RHONY season 7, which has already started filming.
