Bethenny Frankel wears three different swimsuits for the paps in Miami: desperate?

Here we have yet another set of photos of Bethenny Frankel, 42, posing in a bikini in Miami. The last time she invited the paps to a bikini photo op was two months ago in Australia so at least she’s mixing it up a little, even if her MO is pretty obvious. Frankel just had a divorce hearing on Friday, in which she had to face off against her soon-to-be ex, Jason Hoppy. It was some kind of financial disclosure hearing.

The last we heard from Bethenny she was proclaiming that “divorce is the most difficult thing you could go through in your life.” She didn’t qualify it or reference any recent tragedies, but to be fair all the horrible earthquakes, terrorism, and stuff blowing up had yet to happen. (Last week was terrible.) Still, it went to show what a charmed, willfully ignorant life Bethenny lives. She goes on a lot of vacations to mitigate the awful things she has to face in divorce court. Bethenny posed for three sets of swimsuit pics over the weekend. The ones you see here are from Sunday, she had on a zebra print one piece at one point during the day and then changed into a purple string bikini. She wore a green bikini the day before. (Those pics are here.) Here’s more on Bethenny’s hearing and trip:

Sunnier days are ahead. After a chilly meeting with estranged husband Jason Hoppy in a New York City courthouse, Bethenny Frankel was in need of some serious downtime. So when the face-off ended, the Skinnygirl mogul packed a suitcase and took daughter Bryn, 2, down to Miami, Fla., for a little weekend getaway.

Lounging by the pool with her little girl on Sunday, April 21, the 42-year-old talk show host showed off her slim, toned bikini body in a bright purple halter-style top and matching side-tie bottoms. She kept the sun out of her eyes with a wide-brimmed floppy straw hat and aviator sunglasses.

As Us Weekly previously reported, Frankel and her pharmaceutical sales executive ex, 41, reunited in court on Friday, April 19, to discuss financial disclosure with their attorneys. According to E! News, the couple didn’t even acknowledge each other during the meeting.

It must be nice to go to Miami for the weekend and to think the worst thing that can ever happen to someone is a divorce. How does someone reach that opinion? You would have to be seriously self centered to even pay a tiny bit of attention to the news and think that your problems, as a rich lady with incredible resources and options, are worse than everyone else’s in the world.

In terms of how Bethenny looks, I think her figure is enviable, but I know a lot of you see a bag of bones with bolt-ons. You told me so in the last post. She looks pretty hot to me. We wouldn’t be talking about her on a red carpet at some c-lister event and she knows that. That’s why she either wears things that are see-through or goes on vacation and invites the paps. Rinse and repeat.

Oh and I googled “Bethenny Frankel see through” in order to provide some evidence for that, and I found these photos of her at an event for Skinnygirl on Thursday in NY, which I then realized were emailed to us. Of course she wore a dress that revealed her wonky cleavage. Of course.

    I think she’s got a nice figure. and her implants are a good size for her body frame. they don’t look too big, just right.

    I keep meaning to try the skinny girl products.

  2. Ellie66 says:

    I think (and I’m not a fan) she looks great she seems a little more soft not so bony.

  3. Willa says:

    Im not “hating” but I think she looks much better in the one piece.

  4. Leen says:

    I hate to defend her but breakdown of relationships are truly awful and affect people differently and can be even worse than ‘normal’ bad things.

    For instance, I’ve lived in a conflict zone for over 18 years, and I’ve seen suicide bombings, terrorist attacks, raids, shellings, bombings, running away from tanks, all that. But really, the thing that has affected me the most and truly felt the most awful thing on earth was not any of these things listed, but the breakdown of a relationship that has gone on for over 5 years.

    It happens, and it’s not weird and it doesn’t help to minimize it either.

    • Peanut says:

      Exactly, I agree with you Leen. I made a similar comment last time she was getting slammed here for saying her divorce was the hardest thing she had been through. I’ve been through it too and it’s pretty f-ing difficult. Are thre more difficult things in the world? Certainly. But divorce is up there.

  5. Macey says:

    Is she really only 42??
    she looks much older than that but maybe its b/c she’s so skinny. I know she’s been the subject of a few blinds for her eating disorder and lipo but other than that I really dont know her story other than what I read on here and a few other sites.

  6. MrsB says:

    Are her 15 minutes up yet? I’m tired of her.

  7. DB says:

    I just don’t understand how Skinnygirl has made and continues to make so much money. I’ve tasted 3 or 4 of the flavors and – as much as I wanted to like them and buy into the hype – they all tasted absolutely disgusting. Like so disgusting that I had to throw out entire bottles because I couldn’t bear to take another sip. A few times, when Skinnygirl came out with a new flavor, I gave Bethenny another chance – thinking maybe it was me and that I would be won over by her new concoction. But from what I can tell, they’re all nasty. Skinnygirl drinks taste like straight up chemicals – and I can’t understand these women who keep this empire going.

  8. sorella says:

    The body is fine, but she is not exactly easy on the eyes otherwise. Her face is all sharp angles and SO HARD to look at. She has the face of the ventroloquist dummy!! Is it just me that find her face so unfortunate (so good her daughter looks like Jason and not her!!).

  9. truthful says:

    They just keep trying to force her down our throats, yuck.

    and a talk show too, smdh.

    is she still living w/her filthy rich “friend/lover”

    no one ever mentions lil Jason, he’s got a serious fight on his have access to his daughter.

    its her way or no way and now that she has this money man behind her, its not looking good.

  10. Dani V says:

    I don’t know. I’ve been back and forth about Bethenny. Her body is fine and her little girl is adorable. Divorce can be very stressful but having a butt load of money eases the pain. She doesn’t have to worry about paying the bills anyway.

    Lastly, in light of what has happened in the country this past week, well she has it pretty sweet. She needs to dwell on her blessings.

  11. Belle Epoch says:

    She lies. About her finances, about her products, and presumably about any other information she wants to manipulate in her favor. She acts like she’s being forthright but really she’s a sneakybitch.

  12. Missatx says:

    She just looks like a control freak . Her face, her body all radiate a strict harshness . Nothing soft or feminine about her . She is the epitome of what rich waspy women want to look like . I think Bethany is worse than Goopy in a way .

  13. janie says:

    I simply don’t like her. Her husband is one of the nicest guys & his family adored her. She was less than nice to those three people. That baby means everything to them & she uses her as a pawn. She isn’t very nice, yes… she is desperate.

  14. Kelly says:

    I do not understand her fame. Is she really famous for being a “Housewife” on the reality series? She is blegh. At least with a Kardashian or two or LL, you get some laughable outfits, but she’s just … there.

  15. Mandy says:

    Ugh, Bethanny is awful and I can’t stand her. But, I would totally love to have that zebra bathing suit!

  16. Enn says:

    I know I always put on my jazziest dangle earrings to go in the pool. *rolls eyes*

    Bethenny, when Bryn can read and look up old episodes of Bethenny Ever After on YouTube, and figures out the sh-t you did to her dad, you’re going to have trouble on your hands.

  17. Tiffany says:

    I did not realize her Dad was Bobby Frankel (Kentucky Derby 5/1 ya’ll). Yeah, this woman truly has never struggled and was very sheltered.
