Jonathan Franks

Reality star Bethenny Frankel might have tried to silence the people who criticize her weight by being weighed on television.

According to Radar Online, Frankel took the weight challenge recently on Access Hollywood.

"[Bethenny] has been routinely taken to task for her skin and bones looks lately, especially when she's been in a bikini, but the reality show veteran is not afraid to show off what number the scale will show."

Radar Online reportedly obtained the video footage of the weight challenge, which is how they were able to release the result.

Based on the Body Mass Index (BMI) scale posted on the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute website, weighing 114.4 pounds with a height of 5'7" places Bethenny in the "underweight" category.

In an interview on the Today show Monday, Bethenny Frankel opened up about all of the criticism surrounding her weight.

"People do comment a lot. Yeah, I am thin. I mean, I have a brand called Skinnygirl, so it's not a big giant mystery. You can't please everybody — you try to please everybody, you end up pleasing nobody."

"Her weight is a non-issue. She gets a lot of flak for being too thin."
