Bethenny Frankel Responds to Criticism About Wearing Her Child's Clothing With an Oversized Outfit (PHOTO)

Last we saw Bethenny Frankel, she was proudly squeezing into her 4-year-old daughter’s nightie and PJ shorts and sharing a photo with the world — then defending it as a joke once the Internet backlash began. “When ur 4 year old peanut says ‘mommy please put my dress on’ & giggles uncontrollably, u do what ur told,” Frankel wrote on Twitter to a fan who expressed support.

Now she’s apparently decided that a photo is worth 1,000 words, taking to Instagram again — this time in super-baggy sweats and shorts — to make a point (we think) about feeling good about yourself no matter what you’re wearing. (Your interpretation is welcome in the comments!) She traded the Hello Kitty nightie for a Nantucket hoodie, tiny floral shorts for basketball shorts and little girls’ slippers for what look like men’s fleece-lined loafers — plus she swapped her big smile from the first photo for a confrontational glower.

She’s also sporting oversized sweats in her most recent photo post, but in this one, she’s practicing yoga, and this time she was making a point (we think?) about being healthy and loving your body at every size. (Right?)

At last count, 247 PEOPLE readers shared very strong feelings about Frankel’s controversial pic in her daughter’s clothes, so we’re curious to hear your reactions to her most recent photo “response” to the naysayers. Let us know how you feel in the comments!

I used to be a fan, I am so embarrassed to say. Now she is just petty, ridiculous and annoying. I am glad Jason got joint custody so her kid can have some positive role models in her life. His parents are dear.

I’m not faulting her for trying on her daughters clothes or joking she can fit in them. However she is someone who has openly admitted to having an eating disorder and body issues so it was not the wisest idea to pose in clothing meant for a four year old child and basically scream for attention look at me I fit in childrens clothes I am sooo skinny. If she had just tried it on but not posted the picture to be honest I wouldn’t see the big deal. But she was the one, especially as someone who has an ED, who made it like a big deal. The behaviour she showed was very typical of someone who still suffers from an eating disorder and the message she sent was very dumb. It seemed very braggy when really its quite scary you can wear a four year old child’s clothing as a grown woman.

Gemini on

What exactly is she proving with this get up.

MommaMia on

If her daughter told her to jump off a cliff would she do that too? She needs to grow up.

Charlie on

She needs to stop trying to be relevant
