Someone's been in the gym! Bethenny Frankel emerged from the Atlantic Ocean looking amazingly fit in a snakeskin bikini Tuesday.
The 44-year-old reality star has ruffled feathers in her return to Bravo's Real Housewives of New York -- and some of it relates to shots like these ones.
"Bethenny will pose for these 'set-up' paparazzi shots, but she refuses to stand in front of step-and-repeats at any of the other Housewives events to promote their brands," the source said.
Despite the furor, the socialite seems stress-free while enjoying the sun and water.
An incident at Sonja Morgan's fashion show cemented her peers' outrage with her, as she ducked past a red carpet pose, telling photogs, "No, no, no."
Having Frankel briefly pose would have helped bring more publicity to Morgan's business endeavor, the source explained.
A show insider told the paper, "If you think those beach shots were accidental, you're wrong!"
The hustling Frankel wound up in a war of words with Morgan at the bash, the source told the paper.
The fight got so loud producers put the fashion show on hold to focus on the argument.
Frankel's already having personality clashes in her comeback, after comparing her first stint on the show to having "Vietnam flashbacks."

Fellow beachgoers pick up on the celeb presence on the shore; earlier this week, Bethenny wore a ring on her left hand that prompted speculation she's engaged.
