The full story from CBS News:

Bethenny Frankel posted an Instagram pic of her wearing her 4-year-old daughter Bryn Hoppy’s Hello Kitty pajamas, and the Skinnygirl mogul’s followers didn’t take too kindly to the pic.

On Sunday, the 43-year-old former “Real Housewives of New York City” star wrote: “This is my daughter’s nightgown and PJ shorts. Think we’re ready to start sharing clothes yet?”

The post garnered over 545 comments by Monday morning, many touting that the Naturally Thin author was sending a bad message to her young daughter. “This makes me sick to my stomach!!! #eatsomething,” one commenter wrote.

Another message read: “I would just caution doing this as she gets more impressionable. She needs to develop a healthy self-image because she may not have all of your genes…and it won’t be obvious to you, but it will look as though you are competing with her.”

“Starting a complex early for your daughter,” a commenter added of the pic.

Frankel reacted to a few of the comments, writing: “When ur 4 year old peanut says ‘mommy please put my dress on’ & giggles uncontrollably, u do what ur told. @Squirrely007.”
An hour later, she wrote: “BREAKING NEWS! World Scandal: Former reality star, failed talk show host & cocktail maven jokes by wearing her kids’ pjs! #itcantbetrue.”

Lara Stone: “I’ve had lots of ups and downs regarding my body image over the past year”

Lara Stone: I’ve had lots of ups and downs regarding my body image over the past year | hollywood moms beauty body image

Supermodel Lara Stone, who welcomed her fist child in May last year, recently opened up about pregnancy and body image:

Pregnancy is supposed to be the most amazing time in a woman’s life. We’ve all heard stories of the glowing expectant mum, with toned legs and neat bump and the instant and deep connection with her unborn baby. I’m sure those pregnancies exist, but mine certainly wasn’t like that.

I was in maternity jeans at nine weeks. I was bloated all over, had limp, greasy hair, no energy and I could eat (and waddle) for England. I felt terrible for feeling this way because I actually had an easy pregnancy. I had no morning sickness, no bleeding, no pain and my baby and I were perfectly healthy. Yet I didn’t get that earth mother feeling I’d been hoping for.

There is so much pressure these days to look fantastic during pregnancy and to lose the baby weight within days of leaving hospital. I have nothing against those who do, but it’s not normal.

Your body changes hugely during a pregnancy and it takes time to go back. I’ve had lots of ups and downs regarding my body image over the past year. On every level I know I should just be happy to have a lovely healthy baby, and I do count my blessings every day.

But seeing articles about me that say: “She’s brave to go outside looking like that”, “She’s struggling with her baby weight”, “Is she pregnant again?”, or “She can kiss her career goodbye” is painful. And it sends a bad message to other women reading it, who may be feeling bad about their own baby weight.

… says Lara in the Clean & Lean series, Pregnancy Guide.

On struggling with self-image:

“In my 20s I used to cry about why I wasn’t thinner or prettier, but I want to add that I also used to cry about things like: ‘I wish my hair would grow faster. I wish I had different shoes … ‘ I was an idiot … It’s a decade of tears.”

On criticism:

“I’ve never felt like I needed to change. I’ve always thought, ‘If you want somebody different, pick somebody else.’ But sure, criticism can sometimes still get to me. Some things are so malicious, they knock the wind out of you.”

On an article referencing her as “America’s plus-size sweetheart”:

“It’s like I’m managing to achieve all this success in spite of my affliction … Would you ever put that in the headline for a male star?”

… says Melissa.

On what she loves about her body:

“My abs are the best part of my body. I know I’m lucky because when I’m in decent shape overall they tend to get toned very quickly.’

On her strong arms and back:

“My best reason for having strong arms is because I love to pick up my kids. I love having a strong back. Metaphorically speaking, it means I can carry a lot of responsibility on my shoulders – and I do – for my family, friends and fans.”

On turning 40:

“I won’t lie. This birthday was hard. I thought, ‘Oh, my God, am I halfway through my life?’ Buy when I think back on my 20s and 30s, I look better now than I ever have.”

On her least favorite body part:

“We all store fat somewhere… I carry all my weight in my lower body. No matter how lean I get or how many squats or lunges I do, I always feel like my butt carries extra weight. But what I realized is that you can’t have it all.”

The full story from Fox News:

Miss Nevada, Nia Sanchez, may have won the Miss USA pageant, but its Miss Indiana who is getting all of the attention on social media. Mekayla Diehl’s “normal” bikini body stood out from the rest of the super fit beauty queens during the swimsuit competition, sparking fans to lavish praise on the 25-year-old Hoosier for her curvy, healthy-looking physique.

“It’s quite overwhelming, in a positive way,” Diehl told Fox & Friends.

And it wasn’t something Diehl planned for in the run up to the big night.

“I wanted to just continue a healthy lifestyle and inspire others to go after their dreams,” she said. “I never imagined that it would be in a swimsuit.”

Supermodel Petra Nemcova also chimed in on Miss Indiana, telling the show: “I think its fantastic. Each person has a different body type. Some people are naturally skinny, some curvy. We have to celebrate all different shapes of the body. The main thing is to be healthy.”

Diehl agrees:

“I trained very hard for the body I have, but I didn’t go to extremes, and I’m proud of that,” she said.

 

During the 2014 Miss USA broadcast on Sunday (June 8), the beautiful brunette became quite a popular topic on Twitter. Here’s what some of the viewers tweeted:

“I really wanted Miss Indiana to make it to the top 10. She was the only girl up there who had a relatively normal body.”

“Miss Indiana shows you don’t have to be super skinny to be beautiful.”

“Finally a contestant that’s not a bag of bones.”

“The fact that Miss Indiana is not a complete twig makes me really happy!”
