The reality TV star has only one thing to say to her weight critics: "It would be bad if I were overweight and had a brand called Skinnygirl."
Despite being targeted by critics over her weight, it isn't surprising that Bethenny Frankel doesn't really care what people have to say about her thin frame, even if she can squeeze into her 4-year-old daughter's clothes.
Frankel recently blasted critics who target her thin frame
While appearing on The Meredith Vieira Show on Tuesday (Jan 13th), the 'Real Housewives of New York' star decided to speak out against the negative comments against her body in a rather humorous way.
The 43 year-old former reality star uploaded another photo of herself wearing a navy blue hoodie, basketball shorts, and a large pair of men's loafers, in another response to her haters.
The former reality TV star took to Instagram on Tuesday (July 15th), and shared a photo of herself wearing extremely baggy men's clothing, which hid most of her slim frame.
Frankel sported a navy blue hoodie, basketball shorts, and a large pair of men's loafers while standing in her kitchen.

Those of you that were itching for a Bethenny Frankel scandal, be silenced. It turns out that the 42 year old – rumored to be devastated by her divorce from Jason Hoppy – has NOT moved into the apartment of hedge fund expert Warren Lichtenstein. A friend of Bethenny’s told the Daily Mail that she and Warren have been good friends “for more than 20 years and he has really been a support system during this sad time.”
It turns out that the reason Bethenny was spotted at Warren’s $6.3 million apartment in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, was more innocent than people first assumed. With Hoppy still living in the home that they shared before she filed for divorce, Bethenny had simply decided that she wanted a bit of time alone with her young daughter Bryn. “Bethenny stayed at Warren's apartment one night earlier this month with her daughter Bryn as he was out of town, so that she and Bryn could have some girl time,” said the source. “But she is not staying at Warren's home, nor did she move out of her home.”
Meanwhile, she’s said to be frustrated that Jason won’t move out of their luxury $5 million pad. Jason was recently spotted carrying Bryn around New York and still wearing his wedding ring. Lichtenstein runs the hedge fund company Steel Partners and is also the Chairman and CEO of Steel Partners Holdings LP. He has a daughter with former partner Annabelle Bond.
Apparently the counseling didn’t work out. Just weeks after announcing a separation, real housewife and television personality Bethenny Frankel (42) has filed for divorce from her husband of two years, Jason Hoppy, E!Online reports.
The news is coming as no surprise to the two people, who have been following this story, as Frankel and Hoppy have been separated since before Christmas. The split was announced, in typical It-girl fashion, over Twitter and apparently, things just weren’t getting any better. Frankel has taken the first step, by filing a summons for divorce and apparently, she’s already started her recovery period.
Yesterday (January 5), Bethenny tweeted: “Time with @hodakotb is just what the doctor ordered:)”, referring to friend and Today host Hoda Kotb. And to her fans and followers, Bethenny said about the situation: "To those of you who are being supportive: thank you. To those of you who are judging: I totally get it." That seems like a nice, healthy attitude to have about the whole thing, especially for someone, who is getting a lot of criticism around the divorce. One of the biggest issues in the divorce will probably be the custody rights over Frankel and Hoppy’s two-year-old daughter, Bryn.
It's not going to be a very merry Christmas for Bethenny Frankel, who has announced a split from husband Jason Hoppy. The reality star and businesswoman, 42, confirmed the sad news on Sunday, tweeting, "I am heartbroken. I am sad...We will work through this as a family," shortly afterwards.
In her official statement reported by US Weekly magazine, Bethenny said, "We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us." The couple share 2-year-old daughter Bryn, who became the focus of Frankel's reality show Bethenny Ever After. The reality star turned to her 1.1 million Twitter followers for support on Christmas Eve, writing, "Thank you all so much...You give me so much love, and I am so grateful. It feels like your words could get someone through anything."
Though initially gaining fame on The Real Housewives of New York, Frankel is known for her Skinnygirl cocktail brand, as well as her dieting and self-help books. She married businessman Hoppy at New York's lavish Four Seasons Hotel in a wedding chronicled on the Bravo spin-off Bethenny Getting Married. She is the daughter of the legendary horse racing trainer Robert J. Frankel.

Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy have announced that they are separating, after marrying back in 2010. The stars of The Real Housewives of New York are said to have split amicably, according to E! Online and Bethenny released a statement expressing her sadness at the decision, which has come just as the festive season kicks off.
“It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I are separating,” said Bethenny’s statement. “This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother I have to accept as the best choice for our family.” She continued: “We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.” This isn’t the first time that Hoppy and Frankel’s relationship has seemed to be under duress. Back in May, rumours started that all may not be well with their marriage but they dismissed the gossip at the time.
As well as the statement released through E! Frankel has also posted messages on Twitter, saying “I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family” and “Thank you all so much. You give me so much love, and I am so grateful. It feels like your words could get someone through anything.”

Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy were reportedly "on the rocks" during the third season of Bravo's Bethenny Ever After, though according to US Weekly, things have gone from bad to worse.
"Things have gotten even more strained in recent months," said a pal close to both reality stars, "They're fighting a lot." The arguments have reportedly become so heated that the pair have been spending more time apart. Frankel, 42, took a girls' getaway in late November while businessman Hoppy, 41, went golfing during the day of Skinnygirl's Christmas party on December 7, 2012. On Wednesday, Frankel was spotted taking her daughter on a Dunkin' Donuts run before school, with Jason nowhere in sight.
One issue appears to be differing career ambitions, "She's very focused, but he's just not driven," added the source. The couple tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in March 2010 and are parents to 2-year-old daughter Bryn. "Bethenny's unhappy," added an insider, "but she really wants to make it work." Despite the report, the couple were seen putting on a united front during a stroll around New York City on Friday.
Anderson Live, the daytime television show from Anderson Cooper, will not be renewed for a third season, according to the Los Angeles Times. Warner Bros executives began telling stations of their decision on Friday (October 26, 2012).
The CNN news personality - who recently came out as gay - began hosting the daytime show in 2011 (then titled Anderson), though it failed to generate solid numbers. A number of changes were swiftly put into place, including a new name and a live studio audience, though it's done little to change the fortunes of the show. In defence of Cooper, a crowd of new talk shows from the likes of Katie Couric, Steve Harvey, Jeff Probst and Ricki Lake haven't made things any easier. In its most recent week, Anderson Live pulled in just 1.45 million viewers, putting it well behind the likes of Dr Phil. "We are extremely proud of Anderson and the show that he and the entire production team have produced," said a Warner Bros. spokesperson, adding, "While we made significant changes to the format, set and produced it live in its second season, the series will not be coming back for a third season in a marketplace that has become increasingly difficult to break through. We will continue to deliver top-quality shows throughout next summer."
The show will wrap up after the summer of 2013, with Warner Bros set to roll out the likes of Bethenny, starring Bethenny Frankel, instead.
