Bethenny Frankel had the “perfect” 46th birthday — and how it could not be when it included cake and pizza?!
On Friday, the Real Housewives of New York star turned 46 and spent her special day catching a movie, eating pizza and cake, and snuggling with the love of her life in bed. Sounds like a pretty fantastic birthday, right?
“Perfect birthday. Saw @Trolls ate red velvet cake & pizza & in bed w the love of my life snuggling. Life is goodz,” the Skinnygirl founder tweeted on Friday evening. Although she didn’t name the person she spent her day with, we presume she was referencing her 6-year-old daughter, Bryn Hoppy.
To celebrate her fellow Housewife and friend, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna wished the businesswoman a happy birthday on Twitter: “Happy Birthday @Bethenny XOXO.”
“I do eat. I don’t binge, I don’t self-loathe. But I love food, and I like good food. I don’t like fat-free crap,” she said on an episode of the FORTUNE Unfiltered with Aaron Task podcast. “I promote eating a smaller amount of quality food, of full-calorie foods. The word ‘diet’ has the word ‘die’ in it, and it’s a multi-billion dollar business because diets do not work. I eat pizza, I eat French Fries – I just don’t binge.”
Frankel also addressed her daughter’s eating habits and said that while she tries to promote a healthy diet, she doesn’t deprive Bryn of treats and snacks.
“She’ll eat quinoa and tomato soup and some broccoli, because it’s one of the only vegetables she likes – but she eats candy and pizza and French Fries and crap food,” Frankel said. “My philosophy, as far as kids go, as long as you know you’re getting some healthy food in as your base … She has a balance in her diet.”
