Former NYC Real Housewife Bethenny Frankel has painted her childhood as a dark one, but has obtained exclusive photos of the outspoken beauty's happier moments growing up.

Even as a young child, Bethenny was camera ready and had a sense of style. One photo of her by the pool shows her rocking a cute pixie cut and adorable technicolor one piece swimsuit while another has her hamming it up while still in diapers.
