Should baby bumps be bared on the beach?

Do you love or loathe that new bride Bethenny Frankel, 39, has the chutzpah to bare hers in an itty-bitty bikini on her honeymoon with hubby Jason Hoppy, 38, on the beaches of St. Barts on April 3rd? I LOVE it!  The chef and author of Naturally Thin and The Skinnygirl Dish cookbooks is toned as can be — not an extra pound is visible anywhere but on her tummy — so why should she hide that eight-month bump? As Bethenny told OK! magazine in their feature on her wedding: “I didn’t want to cover the bump (with my wedding gown). I wanted to embrace it!”

But listen: Not everyone is an embracer when it comes to bumps. Some women think putting it all out there is gross. So don’t hold back YOUR opinion. Bethenny, a star of  The Real Housewives of New York City, isn’t  a holder-backer. She let her belly spill out of her bridal sweats, which she wore going in and coming out of the Four Seasons restaurant in New York where the wedding was held. She raved about her red velvet wedding cake – “the wedding planner tried to tell us no one cares about the cake but I said … I am eight months pregnant and this cake is my life!” Ok – now it’s your turn – take my poll and vent away!

I agree with Molly, that she looks quite thin for 8 months along and she is most likely not eating enough for fear of gaining weight. I think it’s wonderful to embrace pregnancy, there is a time and place for it. However, I feel that Bethenny is basically a classless “white trash” imbecile who constantly wants to show off her body. I don’t think she looks bad, I just think that she should be more modest. She literally sticks everything in your face with never an ounce of shame. Personally, I find her quite repulsive and disgusting, mainly because of her personality.

i am not a fan of bethenny, but i find these comments that she hasn’t gained enough weight a little bit of a “stretch” of people looking to insult her. she has gained a lot of weight from the stick figure that she was- she actually has thighs here and you can see the weight gain in her face. could you say the same for someone like gisele? i don’t think so. it’s going too far to make such a serious accusation that she isn’t taking care of her baby. i agree though- she always flaunts her body and it does get tiring after awhile. separately, why is it okay to cite someone’s race when insulting them? i find that offensive, too. maybe you should think about using a different slur. i know i’m being sensitive and a lot of people have no problem saying that phrase- but when you stop to think that you’re using someone’s race as part of an insult against them, it’s not cool. people shouldn’t be so flippant about using that phrase.

She doesn’t look anywhere NEAR 8 months along! If you ask me, she looks malnourished, like she’s been purposely not eating so she can stay as skinny as possible while she’s pregnant. I hope that baby is ok once it’s born. Yikes.

Wearing a two piece swimsuit while pregnant isn’t the problem…the suit Bethanny is wearing doesn’t fit properly. Her boobs need a top with more support because the top is not flattering. Her boobs are the gross out necessarily the fact that she is pregnant.

pregnancy is a beautiful thing I think Bethenny looks great and by the way she’s 7 months not eight and she only looks small because she tall for a woman 5′ 9″ and a tall woman will naturally look smaller than somebody that’s short like say Joanne Woodward did in the famous picture backstage at the preview performance of the play Sweet Bird Of Youth march 1st 1959 at 8 months pregnant with her daughter Elinore “Nell” granted Nell was her first successful pregnancy after a miscarriage so it’s a totally different case

pretty sure bethenny is short- like 5’4″ or less. i still think this picture shows her looking healthily pregnant- not too skinny, but just saying. pretty sure she’s short.
