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.

What will The View look like this fall on ABC?

It's a question many fans are wondering, following the firing of Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd last month.

Rosie O'Donnell may actually return to her former co-hosting chair next season, while Bachelorette Andi Dorfman has expressed interest, as has... Sarah Palin. For real.

Could one of these women end up alongside Whoopi Goldberg? Could all of them? Plenty of seats are available, after all.

From the trio of candidates mentioned above to a couple of other women who have talk show hosting experience, we've come up with 11 possible future anchors.

Which are appealing? Which would have you tuning in? Tuning out? Click around and sound off now!

Bethenny Frankel's talk show was canceled back in February, and the former Real Housewife claimed she was happy it was over, as she felt "diluted" and "constricted" by the daytime chat format.

Well, apparently she felt even more diluted and constricted by not getting a paycheck, because new reports indicate that Bethenny is in "serious talks" to join the long-running panel discussion show "The View."

"The View is looking for someone to spice up the show," a source tells VH1. "Someone with lots of opinions and a big personality and Bethenny is at the top of the list."

As an opinionated, highly vocal co-host with a reality TV background, Frankel would make an ideal replacement for former Survivor contestant Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Hasselbeck left The View last year for a gig at Fox News.

The ugliness has finally come to an end.

Following a VERY bitter custody battle between the estranged couple, Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy have settled their legal differences and will both be closely involved in daughter Bryn's life.

The case was settled today in court, though specifics are unavailable at this time.

Said Hoppy's lawyer, Bernard Clair, to People:

"My client is delighted that this custody battle has been resolved; that his co-parenting status has been acknowledged; that the parties' child will have the benefit of being raised by both parents; and most importantly, that his daughter will no longer be at the mercy of a high-profile courtroom battle."

Bethenny Frankel faces a bitter custody battle over her four-year-old daughter with ex-husband Jason Hoppy, who she says is out to destroy her.

The entrepreneur and former star of The Real Housewives of New York City wants primary custody of Bryn, while estranged husband Hoppy wants joint custody.

In court Wednesday, the already public breakup took an uglier turn, with Frankel recounting Hoppy's alleged words to her after she filed for divorce.

"He said, 'I'm going to destroy you. I'm going to have you and your publicist crying and crumbling in a corner.'" Frankel, 43, testified before breaking into tears.

"'Now you're going to see what I was like on the basketball court,'" "He said, 'You don't know what it's like to have a family, you'll never have a family. Let's go baby.' "

The two sides dispute who is the better parent, with Frankel and Hoppy accusing the other of an alleged thirst for fame and chronicling its adverse impact on Bryn.

"Bethenny Frankel's priority is Bethenny Frankel," Hoppy's lawyer Bernard Clair told the judge. "In pursuit of career success, she has used the child as a prop."
