Bethenny Frankel Ordered to Stop Wearing Daughter’s Pajamas: Denies Anorexia

The order came in the middle of Frankel’s heated divorce battle with ex-husband Jason Hoppy, the New York Post reported.

Judge Ellen Gesmer of the Manhattan Supreme Court said Bethenny showed poor judgment by posting her pajamas selfies to Instagram, saying the photos are “ridiculous.” “No more pajamas!” said Judge Gesmer. “It’s not a joke. Her child is not a joke.”

Gesmer warned Frankel that photos like her pajama selfie will live on forever on the Internet and could embarrass her daughter, Bryn, down the line. Ironically, Bethenny had sought sole custody of Bryn after calling her ex-husband “white trash.”

The couple reached an agreement to co-parent in June 2014. A trial to divide up Frankel’s assets, estimated at $55 million, is expected later this year.

The brouhaha erupted shortly after Frankel posted an Instagram photo of herself in July 2014 modeling her daughter’s Hello Kitty pajamas (above middle). Many fans found the picture funny, while others slammed the fitness maven for looking anorexic.

In response to the criticism, Frankel insisted her daughter had asked her to wear the pajamas. “When ur 4 year old peanut says ‘mommy please put my dress on’ & giggles uncontrollably, u do what ur told,” Frankel said on Twitter.

Bethenny explained on the Oct. 3 episode of the Meredith Vieira Show that she doesn’t think she did anything wrong and was shocked by accusations she’s suffering from anorexia.

“I don’t really care what people think if I don’t think I’ve done anything wrong,” said Bethenny. “I didn’t think people were going to start [calling me] anorexic because I put my daughter’s clothes on.”

In the Instagram selfie, Frankel looks extremely thin and has barely any fat on her skinny body. The anorexia speculation has followed Bethenny for years. In 2011, the weight loss guru admitted she had struggled with anorexia, bulimia and laxative abuse for decades.

“Until my early thirties, I spent my entire life being obsessed with dieting,” Frankel told Us. “Bingeing and then fasting or starving. I used to forbid myself from everything. That’s how I used to be: up and down five pounds every single day, to the extremes.”

After spending two decades being obsessed with weight loss, diet and exercise, Bethenny is more relaxed about her body. Frankel detailed her fitness secrets in her book, Naturally Thin.

Frankel said she no longer suffers from anorexia and bulimia, but is thinner than ever. The 5-foot-6 Bethenny said she stays fit by following a portion-controlled diet and doing yoga workouts.

Bethenny shared her weight loss and success secrets in her bestseller, Skinnygirl Solutions.
