The model doesn’t think it is the ‘Real Housewives of New York City’ alum’s place to criticize the Kardashians-Jenners for allegedly presenting ‘distorted’ beauty ideals.
AceShowbiz –Courtney Stodden isn’t here for Bethenny Frankel‘s hypocrisy. The model, who came out as non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, didn’t think it was the TV star’s place to criticize the Kardashians-Jenners for presenting “distorted” beauty ideals.
Noting that Bethenny mocked them during an interview in 2013, Courtney recounted how “The Real Housewives of New York City” alum treated them when they was 19. Speaking with Page Six, they said, “It honestly doesn’t make me feel great to re-live such a traumatic moment, but I wanted to point out the double standard of which she lives by.”
“I would never invite a guest onto my TV show just to make a mockery of them – especially a 19 year old,” the model continued. “The way you treat someone sticks with them. Words matter. I was a very impressionable girl who was screaming inside for love, while she clawed at me and allowed her guests to point and laugh at me.”
The new statement arrived after Courtney called out Bethenny over her recent comments on the famous clan. “How are you @bethennyfrankel for girls/women when you made me feel so mocked on your show when I was 19?” they wrote on Instagram on Friday, September 2. “I canceled all my other interviews in nyc and immediately returned back to L.A. crying my eyes out.”
Bethenny said on Friday that the Kardashians-Jenners were not “inspirational” due to their “irresponsible” Photoshop use. The 51-year-old former Bravo personality claimed that their social media uploads were “not fair to women just trying to get by.”
“Moms feel insecure. … They don’t have time to do all this [Photoshop], nor they even know how to [with] the technology,” Bethenny further elaborated to TMZ. She went on saying that women also feel that they “can’t compete” with Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kris Jenner and Kylie Jenner.
“The more we see these images, the more we think they’re real. It becomes a false ideal,” she noted. “It’s not inspirational, it’s not aspirational. It creates eating disorders, insecurity, depression. It’s a serious thing.”
Bethenny, who also shaded Kim over her Photoshop fail, then advised the Kardashians to “wear some makeup” and “be honest” about their plastic surgery instead of “outright lying” about filtering and Photoshopping. “The playing field becomes not level,” she continued. “When you’re already billionaires, you have access to so much more … and it makes people feel terrible about themselves.”
