Bethenny Frankel Wears Oversized Men's Clothing After Taking Heat for Trying on Daughter's PJs: Picture
Is this better, Internet? Bethenny Frankel went out of her way to cover up, hiding her slim frame in oversized men's clothing two days after she came under fire for trying on (and fitting into!) her 4-year-old daughter Bryn's pajamas.
On Tuesday, July 15, the 43-year-old former reality star posted a picture of herself in a large, hooded, navy-blue zip-up sweatshirt, which she paired with baggy blue basketball shorts and clunky tan loafers. She appears to be glaring at the camera—or, perhaps, at the critics who shamed her for her earlier photo.
The Skinnygirl founder faced criticism from Instagram users on Sunday, July 13, when she shared a shot of herself rocking her little girl's Hello Kitty nightgown and matching shorts (which were more like hot pants on the ex-talk show host). "Think we're ready to start sharing clothes yet?" she joked alongside the pic.
Some commenters thought the image was funny and cute, but others said it was "embarrassing" and chastised the Real Housewives alum for being "too skinny" and promoting an unhealthy body image. "She needs to eat something," one follower wrote.
Frankel, for her part, responded to the haters with humor. "BREAKING NEWS! World Scandal: Former reality star, failed talk show host & cocktail maven jokes by wearing her kids' pjs! #itcantbetrue," she quipped on July 14. Another tweet read: "When ur 4 year old peanut says 'mommy please put my dress on' & giggles uncontrollably, u do what ur told."
