Bethenny Frankel Proves She Has an Eye for Art and Tiny Swimwear at Art Basel Miami Beach
While art collectors from around the world are crowding Miami this week for the annual Art Basel Miami Beach fair, Bethenny Frankel is taking advantage of the empty beach.
The Real Housewives of New York star, 46, flew south for the winter — or a long weekend at least — and has been spotted chilling on the white sand and looking undeniably flawless in a pair of rather tiny bikinis. But the New Yorker has been taking her sunshine with a side of high culture. In addition to posting a beach selfie and a poolside scene on Instagram, she shared a photo of “Bronze Collection,” a trio of sculptures of Sanrio characters including Hello Kitty, My Melody and Miffy, by artist Tom Sachs, which is currently on display at the W Hotel South Beach.
The Skinny Girl founder may very well be hunting for some pieces for a new home. She sold her 3,600-square-foot apartment in Manhattan’s celeb-studded Tribeca neighborhood, which she once shared with ex Jason Hoppy. The home was a sticking point in the former couple’s drawn-out divorce, which was settled in July 2016. The apartment was listed for $6.95 with Douglas Elliman realtor — and Frankel’s fellow Bravo star, Fredrik Eklund, who appears on Million Dollar Listing New York — and sold in just one day.

“I sold @bethennyfrankel’s Tribeca loft at 195 Hudson at FULL ASK of $6.95M in just ONE DAY,” Eklund writes on a post shared on his Instagram in October, adding, “Congrats, love.”
One other item Frankel had her eye on at Art Basel won’t likely fit in a new NYC apartment, regardless of the square footage. “How abt this ride?” she captions her Instagram post of a rather snazzy white car, outfitted in zig-zags, that she spotted in the Magic City. Her followers on the social media site weren’t quite as enthused. But if any RHONY fans spot these distinctive wheels in Manhattan next week, they’ll certainly know who’s inside.
