In a surprising casting development, alleged celebrity and former Bravo reality star Bethenny Frankel is returning to The Real Housewives of New York City!

Four years after she quit the show that launched her career, Bethenny is returning to her roots and rejoining the long-running Bravo series next year.

The former natural foods chef and talk show host, whose self-titled program was canceled in February, will be on the show's upcoming Season 7.

Producers hope her return will help boost ratings for the maligned program, which fell to 1 million viewers (from a record 2.6 million) during Season 6.

"Bringing her back is a last-ditch effort," one source says.

Frankel will benefit, too, from promoting her Skinnygirl empire, which includes a cocktail line, shapewear, and several books, including a new children's book.

Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy are both coming to Bravo's Millionaire Matchmaker ... if the show's mostly ineffectual host, Patti Stanger, has her way.

Stanger, the Millionaire Matchmaker herself, is a believer in second chances at love. One would think, since actual matches on her show are rare.

What she's an even bigger believer in is ratings, and as a result, she's looking to sign up the divorced duo for her upcoming celebrity-only season!

According to a source close to both stars, Frankel's beau has reason to worry:

“Patti is a big fan of Bethenny’s and even though Bethenny currently has a boyfriend, Patti thinks she could tremendously benefit from coming on the show."

“Patti would find the most eligible bachelors, and carefully screen each one.”

Earlier this summer, Bethenny Frankel wore her 4-year-old daughter's clothing and posted a bizarre photo of her new look to Instagram.

Naturally, some fans complained that Bethenny was glamorizing a dangerous body ideal, while others expressed their concerns about her health.

In response, Frankel told them all to get a life

Now, the former Real Housewife and current desperate divorcee has posted another worrisome pic to her IG page and, well...she's certainly the perfect spokesperson for her line of Skinnygirl products:

That's Bethenny posing with a Ferrari that she's apparently considering buying. Rather than commenting on the car, however, most of Frankel's followers took notice of her worrisome weight loss:

If anything positive comes out of Robin Williams' death, perhaps it will be this:

Celebrities (and people in general) will be more open about their personal issues, more up front about internal battles that could lead to serious consequences.

In an interview with Glamour that went viral yesterday, for example, Girls star Zosia Mamet admitted to an eating disorder as a teenager that made her want to die.

She's healthy now, but she knows she'll never be completely over this dangerous "obsession."

But Mamet can at least find solace in the fact that she isn't alone. The following famous females have all struggled with issues of weight and self-esteem - and have all bravely come out the other side. We salute them.

Once upon a time, seeing a female celebrity without makeup was like spotting a unicorn.

It just didn't happen. And when it did, it was a complete accident and the star went into hiding until said event was no longer in the tabloids.

This was, of course, pre-Google Images and to a lesser degree, celebrity gossip sites.

Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian's doesn't lie about the fact that makeup MAKES her who she is. She's shared more than one tutorial about how to get her signature look using highlighting products to contour her face.

Then Instagram came along and stars took matters into their own hands. Instead of having paparazzi leak pictures of them looking like regular people, they'd just share them for free.

Suddenly celebrities without makeup became a thing we celebrated, as Hollywood's hottest and most successful women decided to say "hey, we're just like you when we wake up."

Tamra Barney has gone form bullying fans online to bullying a former Real Housewives colleague.

The reality star appeared today on The Juice (which is apparently a talk show on Veria Living, which is apparently a TV network) and took aim at Bethenny Frankel.

The ex-talk show host and Bravo employee raised eyebrows this week when she posted a photo online (below) of herself in her four-year old daughter's pajamas.

"She's begging for attention right now," Judge said of Frankel's Instagram picture. "If you do fit into your 4-year-old's clothes, don't talk about it!"

Instead, Barney told Frankel what she should be doing: "Just go eat!"

Well played, Bethenny Frankel. Very, very, very well played.

Earlier this week, the former Real Housewives of New York City cast member had some fun at home, squeezing into her four-year old's pajamas and posting the photo on Instagram.

"This is my daughter's nightgown and PJ shorts. Think we're ready to start sharing clothes yet?" Bethenny wrote, quickly receiving backlash from those who believe she's way too skinny and is setting a poor example for young fans.

But Frankel didn't back down from the critics, mocking their insults on Twitter and essentially telling them to get a life.

Bethenny Frankel has taken to Twitter and responded to critics who are giving her flak for posing in her young daughter's pajamas.

Over the weekend, the former reality star shared an odd photo of Instagram of her wearing her four-year old's clothing, writing as a caption:

"This is my daughter's nightgown and PJ shorts. Think we're ready to start sharing clothes yet?"

The Internet quickly responded in hate talk, slamming Frankel for being too skinny, for trying to garner attention and/or for setting a bad example for girls across the country.

And, in response, Frankel has now essentially said: My goodness... get a life!

Chances are, most of us who have four-year-olds living with us did not spend Sunday putting on said child's clothing and posting photos of ourseives in said attire on Instagram.

Most of us (thank goodness) are not named Bethenny Frankel.

The 43-year-old SkinnyGirl cocktail mogul and alumna of The Real Housewives of New York City did exactly that, inspired by her 4-year-old daughter Bryn.

Bethenny, apparently, can fit in little Bryn's Hello Kitty pajamas.

"This is my daughter's nightgown and PJ shorts. Think we're ready to start sharing clothes yet?" she wrote, begging so many questions:

  • Is she trying to comment on expectations for women and body image?
  • Is she trying to show off how amazingly thin she personally is at age 43?
  • Is she merely stoked at saving couple bucks on her clothing budget?
  • Is she innocently pointing out how quickly our little babies grow up?
  • Is she sharing this knowing it will rile up ex-husband Jason Hoppy?

No one can say for sure. But she is a really, really skinny girl.
