Bethenny Frankel Shares Makeup-Free Photo on Twitter

Bethenny Frankel is known for being totally fearless when it comes to just about everything. The witty talk show host isn’t afraid to speak her mind, and she’s not afraid to share a bare-faced photo with her 1.3 million followers on Twitter!

“This is my ‘it’s Monday’ face, which looks very similar to my ‘I’m exhausted and it’s only Monday’ face,” Frankel captioned the above photo on her social media account. And we love that she showed off her natural side, smiling big without a stitch of makeup.

The TV personality celebrates the 100th episode of her talk show Bethenny Tuesday, which hasn’t always been an easy ride for the busy mom, who shoots two episodes a day. “It’s been intense. People have been critical, hoping that we fail,” she told PEOPLE in November, “but we’re finally hitting our stride. Haters are our motivators.”

What do you think of the star’s makeup free snap? Is it a bold move? Would you post a photo sans makeup on social media? Share your thoughts below!

Not the best looking woman in the world. Kind of scary looking. As a side note: way too skinny. Big boob gap (fakies) gross

bkable on

Oh good lord…

Reality on

More of these please!

christa on

She looks so old.

sophia on

who cares make up or none she is still ugly and diva thats why her husband couldnt put up with her

Bee Happy on

Young girls need to see these. Let them know that celebs do not wake up in the morning looking glamorous. They have this perception that celebs look glamorous 24/7. Thanks, Bethenny for sharing this photo!

Dobz on

She is so hideous!! Put some makeup woman!!

Meg on

Love her. She is my age and looks very age appropriate. Glad she hasnt altered her face!

Mr G. on

Holy Shiot! YIKES!!!!!!! Scary if you ask me. Go put your make up back on and don’t come out of your house until you do!!!

Lori on


clothesrock on

This is so fearless! I love it Bethanny!

alex on

It just goes to show people that make up is used to make people look better. Anyone can be a actress or actor thanks to face paint.

Lane on

Hideous. She is loaded. There are non-surgical things she could do to make herself more…well, less hideous.

whateveryousay on

made up or not, her face matches her personality – HIDEOUS

Cat on

I would love to know what the people saying “eww” and “yikes” look like with no makeup. So nasty and rude.

Boom on

Well, she’s ugly with makeup so it’s just that much worse without it. More than makeup or no makeup, what makes her ugly is her holier than thou attitude, trying to steal Bryn from her father, talking down to others, flaunting her sexual encounters. Just gross and oh so unattractive.

mrsmass on

ok, and? she’s been seen without make up on when she was on her many reality shows. I’d also like to note that makeup doesn’t really help out her “situation” that much. She still looks like the Grinch with or without make up.

Sue on

Wow…her chin could replace Jay Leno. Jason was lucky to bet out when he did. She is not pretty….outside or inside!

JRP on

I think it’s brave considering most celebs wouldn’t go outside without 3 tons of makeup (cough, Kim Kardashian). Thanks for doing this, Bethenny. You have beautiful skin and big cojones! on

The phrase is “without a stitch of clothing”, because that’s how clothing is made: stitches. This headline makes no sense. Drop of makeup? Dab of makeup? Ounce of makeup?

Amber on

I thought she looked scary with her makeup and she still looks scary without her makeup.

30307 on

She looks significantly older for her age.

mia.paloma on

Glam squad Stat!!

Lynn on

Is that what you ladies do, get up every morning and look at yourself saying “yikes, ewwww, go away, go back to bed, don’t come out till you have makeup on, yowsa, eeeek, yuck”….REALLY. Nice to see someone show a picture that looks like the rest of us do WITHOUT MAKEUP. Grow up.

DE on


NOLA Girl on

I don’t find her attractive with or without makeup.

Sandra on

Wow, this hag is really desperate for attention.

A bunch of hypocrites on

Funny…..everyone complains that people on t.v. and in magazines wear too much makeup. Here, she takes a picture looking pretty much like every other woman before she puts herself together and people are complaining, saying terrible things. Kudos to her for having the guts to publicly do what so many of those making harsh comments would never do…go out without makeup.

Kayla on

Kill it with fire!

jordan on

She looks like the grinch

Oliver07 on

Meg– she’s had about 2 nosejobs so she’s not unaltered. Many think there’s conservative Botox as well

Oliver07 on

Outsides match the insides.

Tina on

Just as I thought.

Pam on

Ugly, inside and out!

Tina on

@Lynn, not everybody looks bad WITHOUT MAKEUP. Wise up.

Dejavu all over again on

Wowsa. Maybe she should borrow that bag from Shia Leboufs.

patrice on

I guess all the negative commenter’s r super models, she looks fine to me.

Saundra Waller on


Rose on

She is ugly either way.

Nanu 08 on

Don’t EVER go without it again….that is major OGGLY!!!!!

Deb w on

Whether or not she is attractive without makeup is not the question/issue. The fact that someone in her position doesn’t feel the need to hide an un-done version of herself is refreshing. I could care less for the woman – never watched her in anything – but this does raise my opinion of her. Some of you should be ashamed. Just because she is famous doesn’t make it okay for us to bully her based on her looks – with or without make up.

Jay on

Brave of her to do that. She just got some points from me!!

Nanu 08 on

She is one who for sure needs make-up at all times……..OGGLY!!!!!!!!

Amy on

Wow, there are some really unkind people out there. She looks fine, she looks like any woman you’d encounter at the grocery store or at the mall. Not ONE of you would run screaming if you saw her face (and she was a complete stranger to you). She looks like she tries to take care of her skin and she looks perfectly normal for her age.

debbie on

Looks even more like “The Joker” than ever!

cancan on

Yikes. Makeup free selfies aren’t for everyone… No bethenny! No!

BH on


guest on

She looks the same with or without makeup.

Joann on

She is horrific inside and out

guest on

this isn’t news, she used to go without makeup on her spin off reality show all the time.

myla cree on

A woman in her early 40′s should not look like that. When u have tons of money, u can post anything….
