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

Posted on

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?)

How's this for downward dog? @cookiedabooboo

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!
