A new report is claiming Bethenny Frankel‘s friends are worried about her super skinny frame and health, while a source close to Bethenny is insisting all is well with the Real Housewives of New York City star.
Weeks after the RHONY star was labeled “scary skinny” as she walked the red carpet at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in a plunging, skin-tight minidress, a source claims friends of Bethenny are worried about her health.
“Anyone can see her clothes are falling off her,” a friend of Bethenny’s revealed to Star magazine in their latest print issue.
It was only months ago that Dennis was found dead at this Trump Tower apartment in August, from a reported drug overdose, at the age of 51.
“Bethenny was devastated when Dennis died. Deep down, she feels powerless that she couldn’t do anything to help him,” the source said. “She hasn’t been able to eat or sleep since it happened. She knows she’s lost an extreme amount of weight, but that’s all due to grief. She has no appetite. Food doesn’t appeal to her. She’s depressed and grieving.”
The insider also states that Bethenny has been surviving on packets of nuts, celery stalks, and hot lemon water as she takes her exercise routines to the extreme.
“The only thing that takes her mind off things is exercise, but it’s surprising she has the energy,” the insider explained. “At this point, she’s burning more calories than she’s consuming. Her friends are worried, because she’s getting scrawnier by the day. This has been so tough on her, everyone just wants to see her happy and healthy.”
This source insists that Bethenny has not “lost an extreme amount of weight” and that “she loves to eat.”
Admittedly, months ago, Bethenny told her fans and followers she was on a “grief diet” after someone accused her of being too thin.
“Death will do that to a person,” she explained in September. “I don’t recommend it.”
Weeks prior, the reality star said she was doing her best to stay healthy as she grieved.
It’s hard to breathe & I appreciate you giving me the space & support to try to do so. It’s excruciating-sudden death is no closure & constant ?s & memories. Our relationship is current so it’s painfully raw. Trying to stay healthy & move through it w tears & close friends. Xo
