Bethenny Frankel landed in hot water after posting for a photo on Twitter while wearing her four-year-old's clothes over the weekend.
"This is my daughter's nightgown and PJ [pajama] shorts," Frankel wrote in the caption of the photo featuring the 43-year-old in a pink Hello Kitty top and small blue bottoms. "Think we're ready to start sharing clothes yet?"
In posing in the tiny pajama set, Frankel revealed her very thin frame. Consequently, the pose set off hundreds of critics who expressed outrage that the Skinny Girl founder would suggest sharing clothes with a pre-school-aged child. Some readers even commented that Frankel "should be ashamed" of the post on Instagram.
"Go eat something and wear your own clothes," one commenter wrote.
However, Frankel is defending the post as a joke.
"BREAKING NEWS! World Scandal: Former reality star, failed talk show host & cocktail maven jokes by wearing her kids' pjs," the talk show hose posted to Twitter on Monday. "When ur 4 year old peanut says 'mommy please put my dress on' & giggles uncontrollably, u do what ur told."
Also, it is important to note that the Hello Kitty top is actually a gown, despite it barely covering Frankel's midriff. Meanwhile, the "Bethenny" host recently revealed that her talk show would not be entering a second season on Fox.
"I am relieved," Frankel wrote in an open letter on her blog on Feb. 24, almost a week after the production company Telepictures canceled "Bethenny."
"What I really want right now is to be with my daughter, to do yoga, to focus on Skinnygirl and my writing, and to give myself a break," Frankel added. "I have been striving and climbing and white-knuckling for so long that I need a rest from the grind. I'm a little over myself and wouldn't blame anyone else for being over me as well."
