With Bethenny Frankel's return to the Real Housewives of New York, it's no surprise that she's been back in the headlines. Also not shocking? That a lot of the stories are revolving around her weight—or apparently, lack thereof.
Bethenny's gone through the ringer when it comes to the media and her physique (remember Pajama Gate?), and recently on Watch What Happens Live when Andy Cohen asked if she thinks she's too thin, Bethenny was brutally honest. "Maybe. Do I think I can be sometimes? Yes," she admits. "When I'm tired and stressed out people think I'm much more thin. And it's always the times that I feel I'm really stressed out because I get black circles [under my eyes], my face looks drawn in. Maybe. I mean I run around like a total maniac!"
Two people squarely in her corner, however, are fellow RHONY cast mates Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps, both of whom were willing to go to bat for the best selling author and Skinnygirl mogul. "She looks fabulous," Ramona tells E! News. "She eats. She looks healthy. She's fabulous. She's fun. She's exciting."
As for the Countess, she's quite jealous of Bethenny's ability to indulge without gaining an ounce. "She's always eating actually," Luann says. "She just eats and eats and looks that skinny. I hate her."
Regardless of whether or not critics will stop weighing in on her figure, Bethenny has prepared a pretty good attitude about the whole thing. "There's always a dialogue about [my weight]," she explains. "And also when you have a brand called Skinnygirl, I mean, you're looking for it."
