Bethenny Frankel’s strutting her baby bump on the runway

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2010 - Official Coverage - Runway - Day 1

Bravo’s The Real Housewives of NY returns March 4 at 11 p.m. and in the meantime busy Bethenny Frankel is strutting her growing baby bump on the runway during Mercedes Benz fashion week.

This six-month pregnant New York baker who’s made a name for herself with Skinny Girl brand diet books and margherita has only gained a few pounds and slipped into a tight red dress for the Heart Truth Fall 2010 runway show February 11.

Bethenny seems to be loving her pregnant state and says her fiance Jason Hoppy is digging her new look too. She told Radaronline:

“Jason loves it, ‘He says you’re thick and I love it!’ I think he is having some sort of sick pregnancy fantasy. He is having a pregant porno fantasy, so everyone is happy!”

Bethenny’s hasn’t just experienced changes with her body, she’s also changed a great deal emotionally. She also mentioned to Radar:

“I feel like I am meant to be pregnant, which I never knew because I always thought I was this bitter woman, bound to adopt kids and be cold for the rest of my life. I now realize that I do have a heart. When you get pregnant, you realize that you care about more than yourself.”

It’s nice to see that Bethenny’s warming up, she has come off on The Real Housewives as funny, smart, and emotionally cold and distant, but it’s odd that she thought that being emotionally detached goes hand-in-hand with adopting kids. It should be the opposite. Adoption usually requires a mother to make more of an effort to form a bond with the child than they would if they carried the child. Of course there are a lot of biological mothers who are cold to their children, but it is easier to form a bond while the child is developing inside of you for nine months and shares your DNA.

Either way, this looks like a very positive change for Bethenny, and was predicted by her castmate Ramona Singer back in October 2009. Ramona told US Weekly:

“I think it will teach her about being more giving, more loving, and about opening up her heart.”

Despite all the warmth, happiness, and success for Bethenny, not everything is roses for the skinny girl, in the next few weeks we’ll be witnessing a falling out between Bethenny and her former BFF Jill Zarin on their BRAVO show! You can’t blame them for spatting, these girls have a lot of dramatic competition. Can they really outdo Atlanta, OC, and New Jersey?
