The Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel is clapping back at those who criticized her sexy Halloween costume, as the Bravo reality star also spent her 48th birthday with her new boyfriend, film producer and real estate developer Paul Bernon.
Last week, Bethenny, 48, took to her Instagram page to share a photo of herself in her costume, as she dressed as a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Right away, some accused her of trying to copy the Kardashians, who also dressed up as VS Angels, while others criticized Bethenny for not wearing an age appropriate costume. In fact, one follower labeled her costume the “granny version of the Kardashians’ costumes.” And another person wrote: “Little old for trashy costumes.”
This led to a rather lengthy response by Bethenny!
She wrote, “For those haters, I suppose that monetizing reality tv is not the only good idea that the Kardashians and I have shared simultaneously. For those who bash theirs or my body, go hate somewhere else. We are mothers and daughters and I chose those very polarizing ruffle boy shorts thus opting to not show my vagina this Halloween.”
Bethenny continued, “I’m in my late 40s. That is my God given body with no receipts attached (a breast lift 12 years ago notwithstanding) to it. Perhaps next year I will go pantyless & await more constructive comments. To the rest of you, I had my best Halloween ever, trick or treating with my peanut then dancing w my ladies.”
Bethenny later shared a photo of herself hanging out with some of her RHONY co-stars.
In other Bethenny news, the RHONY star was seen shopping with new beau Paul at the Prabal Gurung store in the West Village on Sunday afternoon, where she reportedly didn’t hesitate to showcase her affections for her new man.
“The store was closed so they could shop privately,” an insider revealed to Page Six on November 5. “They were making out.”
Bethenny and Paul were also seen at the Kristen Farrell store, where Bethenny purchased a couple of items, including a handmade bracelet and a ring.
The couple first went public with their relationship last month in Boston. At the time, Bethenny and Paul were seen holding hands on the street before they were photographed kissing one another outside of Boston College.
A short time later, Bethenny and Paul took their romance to the Big Apple, where they enjoyed a casual lunch date at The Butcher’s Daughter restaurant.
The Real Housewives of New York City season 11 is currently in production and expected to air on Bravo TV sometime in 2019.
