Former “Real Housewife of New York” reality star Bethenny Frankel, 43, has given advice to women on how to stay skinny. And now she's getting flack for being too skinny herself, after posting a picture of her in toddler's pajamas.

Frankel is now so thin that she can squeeze into her 4-year-old daughter Bryn's Hello Kitty P.J.s. But she didn't stop there. She then posted a picture on Instagram showing off her "4-year-old frame" on Instagram Sunday morning.

With the picture she wrote: "This is my daughter's nightgown and PJ shorts. Think we're ready to start sharing clothes yet?"

The post left her fans disgusted over her teeny tiny size.

Instagram follower Jazz Maica, wrote: "That's crazy Bethenny eat some food."

"You r too skinny," added user larmac03. "You'll probably make your daughter starve herself someday. ... YUK!!! Eat a hoagie n keep it down!"

Frankel has admitted to unhealthy eating habits to keep her small frame, saying she he used to starve herself and then binge on fatty foods. She also says she did multiple diets to keep her tiny figure, which helps sell her line of “Skinny Girl” beverages and books.

Frankel responded to the criticism on Twitter on Monday, July 14, writing, "BREAKING NEWS! World Scandal: Former reality star, failed talk show host & cocktail maven jokes by wearing her kids' pjs! #itcantbetrue." The Real Housewives of New York City alum also noted that she slipped into the outfit at the request of her daughter, tweeting, "When ur 4 year old peanut says 'mommy please put my dress on' & giggles uncontrollably, u do what ur told."
