Five-Months-Pregnant Bethenny Frankel Tells Bonnie: “I Just Popped — I'm Going to Get Dresses at Target!”

Want to know how the Real Housewife of New York is doing, while she’s pregnant AND running around promoting her new diet book, The Skinny Girl Dish?

I can report —  since I saw Bethenny Frankel in person — that she looks fantastic, especially in the yellow mini-shift she wore on the Today Show Jan. 4.

Astoundingly, for those of us who explode every which way when pregnant, her bump was only visible from the side and she told me, “I just really popped. I haven’t bought any new clothes — I’ve been wearing all my regular clothes — I’m going to have to run out to Target and buy four Liz Lange dresses and wear them to death.”

Clearly her skinny girl recipes are working — she doesn’t look like she’s gained one extra pound even though she’s “hungrier and eating more but not going crazy.” Of course, I’m not surprised she’s already writing her Natural Thin Pregnant Book, she tells me. Luckily, she says she’s had no nausea!

As for her baby’s sex — she wants to know, but fiance Jason Hoppy has put the kibosh on it, “So I’m respecting his wishes.”

Oh, Bethenny. But in case you’d like your Target shopping made easy,‘s fashion editor, Katrina Mitzeliotis, has picked four dresses for you to check out already!
