Just two months after a lethal fish allergy nearly claimed her life, Bethenny Frankel is doing much better.
But concern trolls and body-shamers can't let the Skinnygirl founder have a moment's peace.
This time, Bethenny is preempting the thin-shamers and clapping back. Take a look:
This week, Bethenny Frankel enjoyed an ice cream sundae and even shared the treat with fans -- well, she let them see it.
However, she already knew what haters and trolls were going to say -- so she got one step ahead.
"Yeah I’m skinny," Bethenny, who founded a company called Skinnygirl, acknowledged.
"So tell me to eat a burger or that I’m gonna throw it up," she writes.
Clearly, she has heard countless such messages.
Her post concluded: "#f–koff."
Body-shaming is body-shaming.
There's no question that the overweight have it worse.
We've all read horror stories of larger passengers being viciously body-shamed on airplanes.
There are even stories of fully qualified applicants being denied employment or even housing because they are overweight.
(And if you haven't read about those, you should; it is eye-opening)
But while the skinny may not face the same sort of oppression, there is no excuse for body-shaming them, either.
Bethenny Frankel is drop-dead gorgeous.
Even if someone thinks that she is "too skinny" and would look hotter if she put on some weight, that's none of their business.
Other people don't exist for your sexual gratification.
People claiming to be concerned about Bethenny's health don't have any business talking about he weight, either.
Concern-trolling is still trolling, and Bethenny's health is no more anyone's business than her appearance.
Like ... just let people exist. It's super easy.
Bethenny has real, actual problems in her life that give her a sense of perspective.
As we mentioned, she has a lifelong fish allergy that sent her to the hospital late last year.
The incident nearly killed her.
She says that she has expereinced reactions once or twice a year for most of her life, but most of them are mild swelling.
This time, the allergy nearly claimed her life. Horrifying.
Bethenny has also dealt with what she describes as "torture" from her ex, Jason Hoppy.
She has had to go to court multiple times to deal with his alleged stalking and harassment.
According to her accusations, when he could not bombard her directly due to court orders, he harassed her friends instead.
So body-shamers and other trolls should take note.
Bethenny has dealt with worse than what they can dish out.
As we saw in the Season 11 trailer for The Real Housewives of New York City, Bethenny has on-screen drama, too.
It looks like she flips out at one point on her friend, Luann.
Luann has been pouring herself into cabaret, and arguably using it as part of her sobriety journey.
Bethenny appears to feel that Luann went a little overboard.
Hey, sometimes it's difficult to like things casually. We can understand Luann's situation.
It's sort of funny to hear Bethenny act like a villain in a musical.

On Tuesday, we reported on the news that Meghan Markle was in NYC for a baby shower hosted by a handful of her closest friends.
That may sound like a rather innocuous situation, but as with just about everything Meghan does, the British tabloid press is claiming there are scandalous implications.
By now, you've probably heard about Meghan's various "breaches of royal protocol."
These range from complaints about Meghan's attire to concerns about her ability to curtsy properly.
And now, it's being reported that the Duchess of Sussex broke the rules once again by celebrating her forthcoming bundle of joy with her best friends.
Part of the reason, of course, is that the celebration took place in America.
While Meghan and Prince Harry's wedding celebrated her Yankee heritage, it seems the Windsors would prefer to downplay her past as an American actress now that Meg is a royal.
But sources say the biggest reason Queen Elizabeth II is not happy with Meghan's celebration is that baby showers are simply not customary for members of the royal family.
It seems even peasant Brits find the American tradition gauche, and it's particularly frowned upon for people of means like the royals.
Royal expert Victoria Arbiter says the reason for this is that there's "added pressure that they are clearly very wealthy, and a lavish baby shower would be seen as highly inappropriate.
"There's nothing they can't go out and buy themselves," Arbiter adds.
Despite rumors that Pippa threw Kate Middleton a baby shower before Prince Louis' birth, it seems the Duchess of Cambridge did not have showers for any of her three children.
And it seems traditionalists at Buckingham Palace are less than thrilled by the fact that Meghan failed to ask for the Queen's permission.
Insiders say Meg's party was a small affair with just 15 guests.
But that doesn't mean it was lacking in star power.
Rumored attendees include Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra, designer Misha Nonoo, and Suits stars Sarah Rafferty and Abigail Spencer.
No word yet on whether or not Meghan's beloved mother, Doria Ragland, was in attendance.
Whatever the case, it's nice to hear that Meghan was able to escape her royal obligations for a few days to spend some time with her besties.
Given how awful the awful side of Meghan's family is, she needs support from wherever she can get it.
We're sure moving thousands of miles from home and suddenly becoming a global household name is quite an isolating experience -- so hopefully QE2 can come to terms with the fact that Meg sometimes needs to get away from it all.

Things are not going well for Jussie Smollett. Get used to reading that, because I have a feeling the bad news is just going to keep coming for him. As you know, a few weeks ago he claimed that he was hate crimed by some guys who recognized him from Empire but also love Donald Trump, though the police now believe he hired some extras from Empire to stage the attack, which Cardi B said “fucked up Black History Month.”
Well, despite his insistence that he didn’t stage the attack, the bad news keeps rolling in. I don’t even really know where to start with all the bad news for him, there’s just much of it. His motive for staging this attack was that no one seemed to care that someone sent a racist letter to him through Empire. But the two guys he hired to attack him said that he’s the one who sent the letter to himself.
And yeah, the return address on that letter just said “MAGA.” Same thing the attackers yelled. Really weird he got hate crimed twice by MAGA guys in the span of a week. That, right there, puts me firmly in the “he did that shit” camp.
But the bad news doesn’t end there, because it turns out that lying to the police in the way he allegedly did is a felony in Illinois. Via Variety:
If Smollett falsified a police report, the charge is a Class 4 felony in Illinois, and carries a potential sentence of one to three years in prison. Smollett could also be ordered to pay restitution to compensate for the cost of the Chicago Police Department investigation.
“It’s a very, very, very serious situation,” said Phil Turner, a former federal prosecutor who now works in criminal defense in Chicago. “He’s got some very significant exposure.”
What else could go wrong for Jussie? Well, there were rumors that he staged all of this because he was worried about being written off of Empire and now he’s being written off of Empire. Not entirely, but TMZ reported that he had his screen time slashed in the episode that’s filming this week.
Production sources tell TMZ … Jussie was supposed to have 9 scenes and a big musical number in the second to the last episode — which is being shot now — but 5 of his scenes have been cut, and his musical number has been 86’d.
As for the remaining 4 scenes … we’re told he’s no longer the focus. The scene features an ensemble, meaning he’s flanked by a number of cast members.
Things are not looking good for Smollett is the word here. He certainly raised his profile with this (alleged, he seems like he could get litigious about this) stunt, but not in a good way. There clearly is such a thing as bad publicity.

Khloe Kardashian Made Sweet Comment About Jordyn Woods One Day Before Tristan Thompson Cheating News BrokeA lot can change in 24 hours. On Tuesday, E! News confirmed that Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson split up 10 months after welcoming their daughter True Thompson. Before that,...
Tristan Thompson is a rotten, dirty cheater.
We've known this for about a year, of course, ever since the power forward was caught cheating on Khloe Kardashian with multiple women.
But now we REALLY, REALLY know it, considering the power forward has seemingly been caught cheating on Khloe again... this time with a close family friend.
According to multiple outlets, Thompson recently hooked up with Jordyn Woods, the best friend of Kylie Jenner and someone Khloe knows quite well.
While we await for more details to come in, we've updated this sordid story with the latest below -- including quotes from both Khloe and Tristan.
1. Sigh. What Did Tristan Do Now?
2. Okay. With Whom Then?
3. They Likely Did More Than That, Too

We all know Tristan Thompson is a no good cheat.
But we did NOT expect him to go this low...
Khloe Kardashian is in for another round of heartbreak after finding out Monday that Tristan allegedly cheated on her with Kylie Jenner's longtime best friend, Jordyn Woods.
This shocking news happened right after Valentine's Day, according to TMZ.
Tristan flew into LA to spend the holiday with Khloe and baby True, even though it was reported that the two did not actually celebrate the romantic day together.
In fact, he was spotted with other women on February 14.
But only two days later, he was supposedly making out with Jordyn in a club!
Yep, once a cheater you got a repeater.
Tristan was found snuggled up with Jordyn at West Hollywood hotspot Delilah on February 16, according to eyewitnesses.
They were apparently "all over each other."
Khloe found out on Monday and immediately ended things with the NBA player.
FINALLY. The reality star is hitting cancel on Tristan.
A source tells TMZ there's "little chance for reconciliation," but duh.
I mean how do you recover from something this shameful?
I'm sure you can recall back to April 2018 when Tristan was first caught cheating at a hookah lounge in D.C. where he motorboated a woman and was getting handsy with another.
The video surfaced days before Khloe delivered her and Tristan's first (& last) child together, True.
And just before she delivered, there was additional footage shown of him going into an NYC hotel with yet another woman.
Despite great efforts, he was just never going to be worthy of Khloe's love.
As for Jordyn, we are blown away at how this longtime family friend could break major girl code.
Sadly, we all knew it wouldn't be too long before Tristan screwed up again.
But we didn't see this coming.
Jordyn and Kylie have been inseparable over the years and she has yet to comment on this scandalous affair involving her sister and BFF.
As that old saying goes, the couple that gets swole together, grows old together, and that’s what J-Lo and A-Rod are aiming to do by the looks of things. Ever since news first broke that Jennifer Lopez’s new beau was former MLB heel Alex Rodriguez, the more skeptical among us gave their relationship little to no chance of success, but these two vain individuals have found their ego’s counterpart in another.
If you think about it, A-Rod is sort of the perfect f you to Jen’s ex Ben Affleck, a die hard Red Sox fan. Now one of the most high profile members of his most hated team has played ball on the same field as him, which has to just absolutely steam his clams. I wonder if they’ve ever had a double date with Ben and whichever one of the help he’s banging this week.
Love is hard and making it work is even harder, but these two hardbodies are giving it the old college try, obviously, and they appear to be in good spirits. If nothing else, at least they’re hitting the gym together, unlike John Travolta, who prefers to hang around Planet Fitness by himself at 2 in the morning.
