Fans worry for reality TV star following “too skinny” Twitter snap

Fans of Bethenny Frankel have voiced their concern after a photo she posted to Twitter drew unwanted attention.

The Real Housewives of New York City star was celebrating the release of her Skinnygirl Cocktails book and tweeted a photo, writing: “Today my newest book #SkinnygirlCocktails is available wherever books are sold!! Go pick up yours today!”

However, it wasn’t the cocktails people were interested in – rather Bethenny’s frame, with Twitter users writing: “For your daughters sake, PLEASE consider seeking medical attention for your eating disorder” and “Wow. You look awfully thin here, Bethenny. I hope it’s just lighting or something.”

It wasn’t all that long ago that Bethenny was ordered by a judge to stop wearing her daughter’s pyjamas, after a photo of her in her four-year-old’s Hello Kitty nightclothes caused a lot of controversy online.

The judge claimed that Bethenny’s defence that the photo was a “joke” was not acceptable, saying: “It’s not a joke. Her child is not a joke.” The judge also added that the reality star had used “poor judgement” in posting the photo online.
