Bethenny Frankel is following in Kelly Ripa’s footsteps!
Even though Ripa, who co-hosted Live! With Kelly and Michael wearing no make-up last Thursday, explained that her bare look was due to losing a Super Bowl bet, she may have actually started a new trend.
Now, Frankel has jumped on the bandwagon as well, reports US Weekly. Although she didn’t lose any bets, she did take advantage of an impromptu ‘photo-op’ without wearing any make-up.
On Monday, Feb. 10, the Real Housewives of New York City alum took to Twitter and gave fans a glimpse of what her “Monday face” looks like. She posted a quick selfie for her 1.34 million followers.
“This is my ‘it’s Monday’ face, which looks very similar to my ‘I’m exhausted and it’s only Monday’ face,” she quipped.

However, her exhaustion is definitely justified. Bethenny has been quite busy with Bethenny! As a matter of fact, the 100th episode of the talk show host just aired yesterday.
The big milestone was commemorated with a stellar list of celebrity guests that included Today’s Hoda Kotb, The Real talk show co-hosts Tamar Braxton and Loni Love, Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Kathy Wakile and Dancing With the Stars’ Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
One of the highlights of the episode was the comedic banter between Frankel and Love. The two “talked dirty” before airing the show’s highlight reel.
“Sometimes, Bethenny, you can churn this show into Bethenny After Dark,” Love said to Frankel. “Because I talk dirty?” Frankel asked. “You talk a lot of dirt. Let me just show you,” Love quipped.
After the two watched the potty-mouthed reel, Frankel said, “It’s amazing I got to 100.”
“I want you to get to another 100, so I’m gonna help you out,” Love said. “I got a swear jar for you.” However, Frankel actually felt she’d improved since her reality TV days, but to no avail!
“What I used to do on Bravo was next level,” she said. “This was toning it down!”
