Bethenny Frankel is grateful to have so many social media followers.
The “Real Housewives of New York City” alum turned to social media after she departed from the Bravo show in 2019 and began posting candid beauty product reviews on Instagram.
Years later, all her random uploads have earned her a unique fanbase on the platform, allowing her to continue growing her beauty-influencing brand which she is delighted to have. She took her appreciation streak to the next level when she thanked her fans for supporting her endeavors through the years.
Bethenny Frankel Is Grateful For Her Instagram Followers
The 52-year-old took to her Instagram page to share several pictures and videos commemorating her social media accomplishments. The upload showed different enjoyable moments in her life surrounded by amazing people.
One video showed her reviewing a mascara product, and another clip showed the star having a karaoke session with a drink in her hand. Overall, it was lighthearted and heartwarming to the viewers.
The Bravolebrity expressed the reason for her posting in the caption and shared how she put together her brand. In parts, she wrote, “Although I was early enough to social media, I never really connected to it. Posting myself in a bathing suit or bragging about something or being somewhere felt really cringe.”
She further explained her frustration with following “trends and gimmicks” but felt it was necessary for the business she was venturing into. To end the wordy message, she noted how she had to damn all consequences and follow through with things she cared about. In her words:
“So I said f**k it and started posting weird random stuff that I actually care about vs.what “they” want.”
The author saved the best for last by thanking her three million followers for contributing to her success. “It’s been so fun bringing you into my genuine, authentic, wacky crazy life and adventures. This is really me… XOXO Thanks for 3 million!!!’ 🎉❤️,” she wrote.
Not long after she dropped the post, Frankel’s followers filled her comment section with lots of appreciation for the feat and honesty. One follower wrote, “The Queen of not giving a fuck!” A second fan remarked, “Yesss 🙌Authenticity for the win. And now social media is a “come as you are” platform because we forced it to be!👏.”
A beloved fan stated, “I never get bored with your posts I truly love what you’re doing thank you for being REAL.” To commend the TV personality, someone wrote, “Been here since day 1 and we love this all for you ❤️ thank you for keeping us entertained with 3 million others👏.”
A fifth commentator wrote, “You’ve been my favorite from day one! Not just as a housewife, but also an entrepreneur and philanthropist. You speak your mind and don’t conform to the status quo. Congratulations on your continued success!”
Still speaking on her honesty, Last November, The Blast noted how the beauty influencer got candid about plastic surgery and didn’t care about people’s judgment. In the video, she explained that it was fraudulent to get cosmetic surgery and lie about it.
So she revealed that she did Botox and Fillers over the years and had a breast implant long ago. In the caption, the reality star added that it was vital to remain transparent about her physical appearance because of her influence and standing in the beauty space. The other parts read:
“I’m thinking very seriously about plastic surgery… and I want to share with you all the reasons. How do you feel about it?”
The ‘RHONY’ Alum Takes Stand Against Deceptive Pictures
Last September, Frankel made headlines for being honest. As reported by The Blast, the businesswoman stands against photoshop and unrealistic body standards. She posted three pictures, rocking a blue-colored two-piece bikini with sunglasses as she posed at the beach.
However, the third image had the first and second snap side by side, and the proportional differences in the star’s bust, waist, and thigh areas were quite evident. The 52-year-old’s caption partly read:
“This is NOT what I look like. And you know that bc I’m not vain and show you the real me.”
Frankel further mentioned that everyone might begin to believe that the photoshopped version was her actual body image if she continued to publicize pictures like that every day, adding that it was a new norm for influencers.
The “Chelsea Lately” guest star ended the message by emphasizing how the trend is not inspirational. Instead, it is inaccurate, deceptive, and a false representation of how natural bodies look.
