Unless you’re a Baywatch babe, Bethenny wants you to keep your boobs to yourself. Do you agree? Vote!

Even though the reality TV star breastfeeds her 8-month-old daughter Bryn — and loves it — she thinks nursing in public is inappropriate and should be kept private. “I think, unless you are Pamela Anderson, you shouldn’t be showing anyone your breasts besides your husband and your baby,” Bethenny tells Rachael Ray. Do you agree?

Although Bethenny got a round of applause from some of Rachael’s audience members, others weren’t too impressed by her comment. We’re positive the angry Canadian moms, who staged a breastfeeding protest in a local mall, would be outraged also! But, Bethenny did make some good points as she explained herself. “I think you should find a corner, or there is always a back room, I just think it makes other people uncomfortable,” says Bethenny. “When you are a mother you think everyone is ‘in on’ what you’re ‘in on’, but they’re not. ”

“Definitely breastfeed and do things your own way, but in that one way, I would keep it a little bit private,” she says, adding, “Whipping out your boob at the dinner table is a good diet tip for everyone else.”

How do you feel, HollyMoms, about Bethenny wanting you to keep it private?
