It’s not unusual for mothers and daughters to share their clothes — but it’s a little weird when it’s a 43-year-old mom and her 4-year-old daughter swapping threads. This is exactly what happened over the weekend when former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel slipped on daughter Bryn’s Hello Kitty pajamas and they fit like a glove.
“This is my daughter’s nightgown and PJ shorts. Think we’re ready to start sharing clothes yet?” Bethenny captioned the now-controversial Instagram photo. This, of course, began to elicit two separate reactions from those who saw the snap: laughter and outrage.
Many fans found the photo cute while the haters pointed out that this couldn’t be good for Bryn’s body image, seeing her mother being able to wear the same sized clothes as a 4-year-old kid. We know Bethenny is the Skinnygirl queen, but this probably wasn’t the brightest idea.
Bethenny has since responded to all of the hate she has been getting, writing an extremely sarcastic tweet — you know, the usual. “BREAKING NEWS! World Scandal: Former reality star, failed talk show host & cocktail maven jokes by wearing her kids' pjs! #itcantbetrue,” she wrote.
Even more telling, Bethenny revealed that she slipped on the clothes at Bryn’s request: “When ur 4 year old peanut says "mommy please put my dress on" & giggles uncontrollably, u do what ur told.”
Do you think Bethenny should have put on her daughter’s clothes or not? Hit the comments and weigh in!
