Also on Saturday, Bethenny shared a follow-up video to directly respond to her comment receiving so many likes on Kim and Gwyneth’s post.
The star revealed she didn’t expect her comment to elicit such a response and went on to discuss Gwyneth saying the SKIMS founder had ‘redefined the way we think about a woman’.
“I don’t think it’s really redefined the way we think of a woman,” adding, “Gwyneth Paltrow promotes a different world of wheatgrass, overnight oats, chia seeds, and yoga. “. So for her to say that Kim Kardashian has redefined what a woman is just doesn’t hold up.
Bethenny explained that instead of claiming that Kim had “redefined” women, Gwyneth should have been candid and said, “…today we have Kim Kardashian because no matter what, she’s a billionaire boss. And we all pay for it…’
The star added towards the end of her response that “We don’t need shit from women supporting women.” And we don’t need all the sanctimonious covers of alo vera b***s**t. We just want it to be straight, no chaser.
In the caption, Bethenny also wrote, “Just give us the right, no hunter. We support women, but we don’t support b***s**t. Cheers to less BS in 2023…’
