Jill Zarin isn't the only one chastising Bethenny Frankel these days.

Frankel, who gave birth to daughter Bryn via C-section on May 8th, has rapidly dropped "29 of her 35" pounds of baby weight, restoring her size-four figure. Despite the "Skinny Girl" attributing her weight-loss to yoga, walking, and C-Section induced fasting, professionals are arguing that her slim down may be both unhealthy and potentially dangerous to impressionable young women.

Peg Moline, editor-in-chief of Fit Pregnancy, comments, "I worry about the message that sends to the rest of us out here, who aren't invested in that 'skinny girl' persona and don't have trainers."

The "Housewife" is doing everything in her power to deny the maelstrom of allegations against her. As she told the New York Post, "My message to women is to be comfortable where you are, to not binge at any point in your life, to eat a balanced diet with indulgences and to go at your own pace."
