Bethenny Frankel Opens Up About Weight Criticism


In order to promote her self-help book called ‘I Suck at Relationships So You Don’t Have To: 10 Rules for Not Screwing Up Your Happily Ever After,’ Bethenny Frankel appeared on the Today Show and explained why she is the perfect person to give relationship advice.

“I learned more from my mistakes than from my successes. I can still give advice on something that I’ve made a lot of mistakes in. Do as I say not as I’ve done.”

And she also said that she’s really good at writing.

‘’I do feel that, when I’m going through something, I write. It’s kind of like it pours out of me… so now I’m going through something, if I can help people and talk about what I’m going through and express it, which I do think that I have a gift for, I think it’s great. And I really do love this book so much and all of the practical advice in it.’’

Despite the fact that she published a book, people were more interested in her weight so Frankel also talked about her appearance.

‘’People do comment a lot. I do say ‘yeah, I am thin.’ I mean, I have a brand called Skinnygirl, so it’s not a big giant mystery. You can’t please everybody. You try to please everybody, you end up pleasing nobody. Sometimes I do agree that I look too thin, especially when I’m tired, especially when I’m haggard. I do eat. There are nutritionists that comment that I don’t even weigh a hundred pounds. I weigh 115 pounds. I’ll be happy to get on the Today show scale.’’

It seems that Frankel is pretty upset because people comment on her weight, and she even claimed that no one talks about overweight people.

‘’People don’t talk about people that are overweight. If someone thought you were overweight imagine being like ‘wow, that person looks really overweight’ and keep talking about it, that wouldn’t be nice. But that’s not something I’m going to complain about.’’

Despite the fact that she wants us to see that she’s frustrated with the skinny comments, we can hardly feel sorry for someone who compared herself to a skeleton. Besides, she constantly poses half-naked and wears her daughter’s clothes. She even wrote a diet book.

And then she has the nerve to say that she doesn’t want people to call her skinny? Yea right.
