Bethenny Frankel promotes shapewear line, remains mum on divorce rumors
Bethenny Frankel has expanded her Skinnygirl empire to include shapewear, which the reality star calls her "lazy lingerie."
The line, Skinnygirl Solutions is available at Macy's department stores and features tanks, shorts and bodysuits under the $50 mark, which feature retro shapes and lace prints that don't need to be completely hidden.
"The problem with shapewear is that it's not something you want people to see," Frankel told People magazine. "But this is something you actually want people to see."
"It's lazy lingerie," Frankel continued. "You're wearing it now, and if you take your clothes off, you're already sexy for your husband or your boyfriend or for a date."
The reality star turned business woman began her shapewear venture with the Skinnygirl Smoothers n' Shapers line, which allowed women of all sizes to add shapers to their own bras.
Frankel and her husband Jason Hoppy currently appear in the Bravo reality series "Bethenny Ever After," which is on its third season. Frankel married Hoppy in 2010 and gave birth to their daughter Bryn in May 2010. The couple's wedding and Frankel's pregnancy was documented on the show "Bethenny Getting Married?"
While Frankel has been busy promoting Shapewear and her newest New York Times best-seller, "Skinnydipping," she has remained mum on rumors that she and Hoppy are headed for divorce.
While the pair have been arguing on recent episodes of "Bethenny Ever After," a source told the Huffington Post that they have not met with divorce lawyers and are very much still together.
Frankel, who came to fame by starring on "The Real Housewives of New York" for three seasons, revealed in February that she recently suffered a miscarriage.
The reality star, who has developed a line of cocktail beverages under the Skinnygirl brand, is also New York Times best-selling author with diet and self-help books like "A Place of Yes" and the Skinnygirl chef also signed a three-book fiction deal with Touchstone Fireside and released her first fiction book called "Skinnydipping" in April.
In a recent episode of her reality series, "Bethenny Ever After" where the 40-year-old reality star and her husband, therapist and crew got lost at sea off the coast of Maine in September. Frankel said at the time that they were lost at sea for 20 hours after the GPS system broke and the coast guard had to guide them back to shore.
