Bethenny Frankel Fights Back Over Photo Where She Looks “Too Thin”


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.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
