Bethenny Responds To Pajama Photo 'Controversy'

The former RHONY star raised eyebrows for wearing her daughter's clothes.

Bethenny Frankel may not have realized that posting a picture of herself in her 4-year-old daughter's pajamas would lead to so much online controversy.

The former Real Housewives of New York City star shared a picture of herself in Bryn's Hello Kitty PJs on Instagram Sunday (above), with the caption, "This is my daughter's nightgown and PJ shorts. Think we're ready to start sharing clothes yet?"

From there, some commenters suggested that Bethenny was sending the wrong message out about body image to the women and girls who follow her. Others, however defended the photo and the reality star, calling it all a "joke."

On Monday morning, Bethenny took to Twitter to explain what inspired her to share the snapshot. "When ur 4 year old peanut says 'mommy please put my dress on' & giggles uncontrollably, u do what ur told," she told one follower.

She also reacted to the onslaught of headlines the photo has received in the hours since she posted it. And her response includes her tongue planted firmly in her cheek. She wrote, "BREAKING NEWS! World Scandal: Former reality star, failed talk show host & cocktail maven jokes by wearing her kids' pjs! #itcantbetrue."
