Bethenny Frankel Agrees With Bonnie Fuller — Calls Gisele Bundchen's Breastfeeding Comments 'Absurd'!

Wed, August 11, 2010 7:26pm EDT by 26 Comments

Bonnie isn’t the only one who says that Gisele is wrong about forcing moms to breastfeed — now she’s being attacked by Real Housewives of NYC star Bethenny!

Yikes, Gisele Bundchen — you certainly opened a huge can of worms when you said that “there should be a worldwide law…that mothers should breast-feed their babies for six months.” Who knew you’d create so many enemies? Now you can add one more to the roster: Bethenny Frankel.

The Real Housewives of NYC star – who gave birth to daughter Bryn in May –  is furious about the Brazilian supermodel’s comments, telling Us magazine, “It’s the most absurd thing I’ve ever heard. Breastfeeding is one of the most rewarding experiences, but it isn’t for everyone.”

Gisele, 30,  has slightly retracted her opinions, blogging, on August 2, “Everyone has their own experience…I’m not here to judge.”

Previously, Gisele – mom to little Benjamin Brady – came under fire from HollywoodLife.com‘s own editor-in-chief Bonnie Fuller, who called her “public enemy #1″ for her controversial comments.

EVERYONE SHOULD BREASTFEED THEIR BABIES!! not only does it give the child life saving immunities, studies have shown breastfed babies do much better in life in terms of health, brains, and weight. in addition, breastfeeding moms lose more post baby weight. our country is fat and unhealthy, which could be reduced by simply breastfeeding. don’t want to give your kid what’s best? don’t have kids.

FYI…I could not breastfeed and my daughter is healthy, smart, and has a beautiful figure (she’s 22) and I weigh 110 lbs so your theory is blown out of the water with me. I’m afraid breastfeeding is not going to make our country healthy…veggie burgers at McDonald’s is a start. Maybe people with ignorant opinions should not have kids either.

Giselle is just a dumb Brazilian whore.

Tell to stop speaking and just continue to milk the money out of Brady, just like the rest of the pathetic dumb Brazilians!

Frankel knows alot about absudity. Everything that whining smart ass phoney says is absurd. Why does Frankel have to comment on everything? Her agent should talk to her about the dangers of overe exposure – then again her celebrity shelf life is limited so she has to work it while she can while the public suffers.

Agreed, leave Gisele alone – she was just making a comment. Why is this hack Bethenny commenting on everything? Unnecessary.

Any time I read Gisele talking about anything, she sounds like a total bitch. Read the interview where she’s discussing her step-son, before she was ever pregnant. She goes on about how he is “her” kid and basically his real mom should just get out of the picture. Or when she talks about how most women use pregnancy as a way to eat like a pig and gain tons of weight but not her because she is so perfect. She should probably just stick to what she’s good at- standing around in her underwear and shut up.

It seems to me that she IS sticking to what she’s good at: MOTHERHOOD!

If she is raising her step-son, then what she suggested is exactly right. I don’t know why the ‘real’ mom isn’t raising her child but it’s clear that Gisele will be a good one.

As far as most people eating like pigs…well, just look around. Oink, oink.

She may not be perfect…but she’s on the right track.

I recall reading a story about Gisele. That she tried to help and connect with young women, but found it didn’t work. Probably b/c she isn’t in touch with the average person or makes statements that she has to moderate later. Either way she should stick to looking unique for photographers and shush up

Ok. She has her opinion, & I have mine. You can BF all you want.Just don’t do it around me. I choose not to BF, both times.My 2 have always been healthy. I personally think BF is awful. It reminds me of an animal out in a field. Alot of people won’t like my opinion either. So what. It’s my opinion, & I won’t change my mind. The women in my family who choose to BF, have NEVER done it around me. They know how I feel about it. UGH.

How can I have an “awesome day” when you won’t even let me suckle in front of you? The ‘civilized’ mother crushes Valiums up in vodka to nurse her baby. How much better that works than REAL motherhood!

Primitive? What a sad, pathetic race we have become!

Woooow. I hate to break it to you but just because have moved indoors from the field, we are still, as you so eloquently put, “animals.” We are not going to evolve out of producing milk for our offspring. I think you need to get back in touch with what it means to be a woman.

Sure, you will change your mind…when you grow up. That’s the main reason that children shouldn’t have children. “My 2 have always been healthy.” What are they…three? You just don’t even realize how much you have compromised their health. Breastfeeding…look at those words – BREAST and FEED – now, take a deep breath and look again…come on, it won’t hurt you…breastfeeding not only offers immune system help (a primitive function in humans) but also psychological and emotional balance, as well. If they have mental or emotional issues in the future, you’ll know what caused it.

This is more than just my opinion…it’s a scientific fact. Grow up and smell the milk. Yummm!

If Giselle wanted to be left alone then she should’ve stated her opinion as just that – only her opinion. Instead she spoke in a manner that was condescending, demanding, and talked down to everyone else and she deserves every bit of the “cussing out” she’s getting for it.

Gisele, you go girl! What you said is right on. Don’t let what all of the Hollywood weirdos say cause you to back down. They are all big time losers, anyway. Star of “Real Housewives of NYC”? Whoopy Ding Dong! What class! UGGHH!

Real beauty lies on the inside and it’s not hard to see who has it and who doesn’t. Get a REAL life, people!

When you talk to little people, sometimes you just have to talk down to them. What Gisele REALLY deserves is a group hug! Ready, everybody? SQUEEZE, HUGGG…hey, watch those hands, buddy!

I dont feel like she is forcing anyone to do anything. Its her opinion, they asked her and she gave her opinion. Just like its your opinion not to do that. celebs should have their opinions. How many times have you said something you believed in and made the statement right after along the lines of, ” this is my opinion but any person can believe what they want and i’m not judging anyone, and these statements are not meant to offend anyone”. I mean think about it, would you say that right after every opinion you had? It would stop being your opinion and would take your voice away. You would sound crazy. She is not even saying something that is dangerous. ask any doctor and they will say that breastfeeding is preferred from powder. But they also say but can help babies grow healthy. It just doesnt give natural antibodies. give her a break it her opinion not yours, thats the whole point of interviews is to get to know celebs. And now we know what she feels about that. leave her alone.
