We’ve reported that Bethenny Frankel‘s divorce from Jason Hoppy is one big media scam to garner attention before the premiere of her new talk show–and it probably is. But the media stress and single motherhood is getting to the fitness queen, who is losing weight faster than Jessica Simpson can gain it! An insider reported her scary condition to Star Magazine, print edition January 28, 2013. Says the friend, “This is the thinnest Bethenny has ever been. She does tons of yoga and doesn’t eat…she’s down to one chicken breast a day and some fruit, and that’s it!”
Bethenny has formally struggled with bulimia, and a report that in recent years Bethenny “would run to the ladies room…after each meal” has us worried that her eating disorder may be rearing it’s ugly face. When concerned friends try to help, Bethenny reasons that “she has too much to worry about right now and doesn’t want to eat when she feels like this.” While we understand that she’s afraid of emotional gorging, she needs to keep her body strong!
Her friends know exactly what’s really going on though, and it sounds like an intervention may be brewing. They’ve realized that “Bethenny’s using Bryn as an excuse not to take care of herself…she’s setting a terrible example for Bryn.” It seems like a healthier alternative to bulimia and anorexia would be to hire a nutritionist, and take out all stress, angst, and frustration with a private kick boxing instructor! We hope Bethenny can get the help she needs to overcome her eating disorder and be a good mom to Bryn–publicity whore or not!
