By Gina DiFalco,

Bethenny Frankel is raising eyebrows for posting a picture of herself in her 4-year-old daughter Bryn’s clothes over the weekend. The photo has elicited mixed reactions to a possible deeper message the 43-year-old Skinnygirl entrepreneur could be sending.

“This is my daughter's nightgown and PJ shorts. Think we're ready to start sharing clothes yet?" she wrote as a caption. The backlash caused her to tweet on Monday morning, “BREAKING NEWS! World Scandal: Former reality star, failed talk show host & cocktail maven jokes by wearing her kids' pjs! #itcantbetrue.”

According to Daily News, Twitter followers told the former Bethenny talk show host that she’s simply “too skinny.” One user wrote, "You're a grown woman the size of a preschooler.”

Other users argued that Frankel, who has admitted to her struggle with an eating disorder and body image issues in the past, is sending the wrong message to her young daughter and young fans.

"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," someone else wrote.
