On Wednesday, August 31, Frankel took to Instagram to show off one photo of herself completely edited and another completely natural while calling out all of the photoshop that people use on their pictures and the unrealistic beauty standards that can perpetuate.
"This is NOT what I look like…and you know that bc I’m not vain and show you the real me," the Big Shot With Bethenny star wrote alongside the post. "But if I posted a version of this every day you might start to believe that it might be. This is just how distorted this has all gotten…"
"Filtering is lying: it is deceptive. It makes women feel badly about themselves. It makes young girls insecure and obsessed with an unattainable perfection," she continued. "It makes middle aged women and mothers feel insecure about themselves," Frankel noted. "This creates a false ideal for men."
"It’s the opposite of inspirational. It’s destructive. It’s irresponsible. It’s insecure and it’s inaccurate," she continued. "There is a line between making an effort to look pretty and an outright falsehood."
