Bethenny Frankel may not be a “Housewife” anymore, but she will always be real.
The former “RHONY” star, 49, took to Instagram on Tuesday to post a no-makeup, filter-free selfie — and clap back at those who’ve accused her of using plastic surgery to turn back the clock.
“The more I see photos on social media that are filtered, contoured, eyelashed, extensioned, & retouched – the more important it is to post #nofilter, real, everyday photos,” Frankel wrote. “I want to show our daughters (and sons) a realistic female image. #THISiswhatilooklike #thisisme #unfilteredselfie #noglam #workingmom.”
“Truth! My greys and wrinkles show a life lived hard, yet well!,” one fan agreed in the comments, while another wrote, “I am 46 almost 47 and I want to celebrate my age not hide it.”
The Skinnygirl mogul also took to her Stories to address the “haters” who assume she relies on Botox and fillers to look younger. “I’ve earned these lines,” she wrote. “And no filler … Look at my mouth. These lips don’t lie.”
Frankel’s clearly got the support of her boyfriend Paul Bernon. “Beautiful ❤️,” he commented.
