The star revealed that she didn’t expect her comment to instill such a response, and Gwyneth chimed in, saying the SKIMS founder has “redefined the way we think about women.”
“I don’t think it really redefined the way we think about women,” he says, adding, “Gwyneth Paltrow is promoting a different world of wheatgrass, night oats, chia seeds, and yoga. So for her to say Kim Kardashian redefined women — she just doesn’t follow through.”
Instead of claiming that Kim has “redefined” women, Bethenny explained, Gwyneth should have been candid and declared, “… today we have Kim Kardashian because no matter what, she’s a billionaire.” And we all pay for it … “
At the end of her response, the star added, “We don’t need b***s**t women who support women. And we don’t need all that lofty alo vera b***s**t cover. We just like that it’s straight, not chased.”
In the caption, Bethenny also wrote, “Just give it to us straight no stalker. We support women, but we don’t support b***s**t. Cheers to a bachelor less in 2023…”
