Hey BFFs! Does Bethenny look hot or what? Here’s how she did it!

Bethenny Frankel hit the beach in an itty bitty turquoise bikini Aug. 11, just 90 days after she delivered her beautiful little girl Bryn. After looking at 39-year-old Bethenny’s enviable new bod — she’s 5’6 and 118 lbs — we are completely shocked that she was able to lose the weight so fast!

Life & Style has the photos of Bethenny’s perfectly toned tummy, and they spoke to a fellow beachgoer who revealed The Real Housewives of New York star looks even better in person!

“She looked like she’d lost all the baby weight and she was toned too,” says the onlooker. “Even her tush was remarkable!”

The new mommy, and author of Naturally Thin and Skinnygirl Dish, must have remarkable genes because she tells the magazine that it wasn’t incredibly hard to drop the weight!

“There’s been no real drastic anything,” Bethenny says. “I’ve really been eating, just not like a crazy person. Taste everything, eat nothing.”

The reality star and natural-food chef tells the mag she’s totally over “extreme” dieting.

“I was owned by dieting and I hated myself,” she says. “I’ll never be extreme again, it just doesn’t work.”

Bethenny, who gave birth to Bryn via C-section, was “forbidden” to workout for two weeks, but slowly she’s managed to get back into a grove.

“Sometimes it’ll take me the whole day to get through it [her yoga DVD, Body By Bethenny],” she says. “I do what I can when I can, a couple of times a week.”

So what’s the key to bouncing back like Bethenny?

“I don’t have a secret,” she says. “I’m just happy. I’m in love.”
