Each week, we pick one woman who's done something to make us proud. This week we're loving Bethenny Frankel for her candor in response to the criticism she’s received about her post-baby body and for truly being upfront about who she is.
On May 8, the Real Housewives of New York City star gave birth to her baby girl, Bryn, and she recently showed off her new size-4 body in Us Weekly, saying she's already lost 29 of the 35 lbs. from her pregnancy. Frankel came under fire for her questionably trim physique, but bit back with the typical candor that we have come to love about her. "I don't know who wrote the rule that it has to take nine months to take (the weight) off," the natural-foods chef told Access Hollywood. Unapologetic about dropping the baby weight so quickly, she attributed eating moderately throughout her pregnancy and afterwards -- not a crazy diet.
And Thursday marked the premiere of the reality star's own spinoff show, Bethenny Getting Married?, following the travails of wedding planning with her new hubby Jason Hoppy. Frankel even allowed a therapy session to be filmed, where she revealed that she was married once before and spoke openly about the tough upbringing that made her leave home at 15.
We can't help but admire Bethenny Frankel for her wit and honesty. And we salute her for being a truly real Real Housewife.
