A skinny girl, indeed! Less than two months after her split with husband Jason Hoppy, reality star Bethenny Frankel showed off her svelte bikini body sporting a Vitamin A’s Brentwood Bandeau and Cosmo Conch back bottom, while relaxing on Australia’s famous Bondi Beach on Monday, Feb. 18.

The talk show host, who also took surfing lessons while Down Under, shared her fitness tips with Us Weekly. “I used to spin every day like a lunatic,” Frankel said in 2011. “You know, I have a stressful enough schedule without being on some bicycle going 150 miles an hour. Yoga makes me feel better. Plus, you can do it in a hotel room or at home. The Plank position is an amazing ab exercise!”

The in-shape talk show host didn’t bring her 2-year-old daughter Bryn on the trip, explaining that she “felt it was too long a flight for her.”

Even without her daughter’s company, Frankel had a good time. “I’m in love with Sydney,” the 42-year-old SkinnyDipping novelist tweeted Feb. 17. “The weather is beautiful, the people are lovely and I am just so thrilled to be here.”

Frankel certainly needed a getaway in the wake of her split with the 41-year-old pharmaceutical sales executive. “Listen, it’s a struggle, and like any struggle, you push through it and move forward,” the former Real Housewives of New York City star explained on Good Morning America Feb. 8.

In their divorcing filings, both Frankel and Hoppy are requesting child support and primary custody of their little girl. “Bethenny thought she could just roll him over and get out with no hassle,” a Hoppy pal recently told Us. “Jason is livid with how cold Bethenny has been with him since the split. He wants to make her pay.”
