Kristen Taekman and longtime friend Brandi Glanville recently participated in a joint interview, discussing a hot topic that has plagued The Real Housewives of New York City‘s Bethenny Frankel for years.
In a May 11 report by AllAboutTRH, Kristen Taekman and Glanville weighed in on Frankel’s thin frame. However, the two Bravo stars didn’t agree on whether or not Frankel’s weight was healthy.
“She’s always been consistent,” Kristen Taekman said.
In response, Glanville disagreed, claiming the reality star and mother of one could stand to gain a few pounds.
“I think she’s too thin. But I do know when you go through something traumatic, like divorce or court issues, you’re anxious. And you’re burning calories all day long. But I do think she needs to eat a little. It has to happen.”
During an appearance on the Today show last month, as the Inquisitr reported, Frankel revealed she weighed 125 pounds and volunteered to get on a scale to prove it. Kristen Taekman’s co-star also admitted during the interview that her weight isn’t always consistent and fluctuates with the stress level she’s under.
“Sometimes I do agree that I look too thin, especially when I’m tired, especially when I’m haggard. I do eat. There are nutritionists that comment that I don’t even weigh 100 lbs. I weigh 115 lbs. I’ll be happy to get on the Today show scale.”
For the last couple of years, Frankel has been caught up in a messy divorce from husband Jason Hoppy, the father of her daughter Bryn, who is reportedly trying to get his hands on a portion of her Skinnygirl earnings. Understandably, the ongoing legal battle between Kristen Taekman’s co-star and her estranged husband has taken a physical toll on the reality star.
Still, she doesn’t feel her weight should be targeted publicly.
“People don’t talk about people who are overweight…Imagine being like, ‘Wow, that person looks really overweight,’ and keep talking about it. That wouldn’t be nice. But that’s not something I’m going to complain about.”
Although Kristen Taekman didn’t follow in Frankel’s footsteps and reveal her own weight, her longtime friend did, tweeting to her followers on social media who reportedly accused her of looking a bit bloated during the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 reunion.
