Bethenny Frankel, who joked that she’s as skinny as a skeleton, previously battled anorexia, bulimia and laxative abuse.

Bethenny Frankel is used to people saying she’s too skinny. To head them off, Frankel tweeted a photo of skeleton outside a Manhattan store and joked that it was her.

“SPOTTED: Bethenny Frankel hanging out in SoHo today… It’s a little chilly….” Frankel wrote on Twitter Feb. 19.

Bethenny, who has returned to the “Real Housewives of New York” after her talk show was canceled, recently slammed haters who criticized her for being too thin.

“I feel like, ‘Who cares?’ They are always going to say something,” said the weight loss guru. “I do have a brand called Skinnygirl, so I am going to get beaten up for it. It would be bad if I were overweight and had a brand called Skinnygirl, could you imagine?”

All jokes aside, Bethenny previously revealed she suffered from the eating disorders anorexia and bulimia and abused laxatives for many years, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.

“Until my early 30s, I spent my entire life being obsessed with dieting,” said Frankel. “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 now more relaxed about her body. Frankel detailed her fitness secrets in her book, Naturally Thin.

Bethenny 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 Frankel shared her weight loss and success secrets in her bestsellers, Skinnygirl Solutions and Skinnygirl Cocktails.
