RHONY alum Bethenny Frankel shades Kim Kardashian with 'private island' joke after luxury birthday getaway is slammed

BETHENNY Frankel took a major swipe at Kim Kardashian after the mom-of-four was slammed for her recent luxury holiday.

Bethenny, who will turn 50-years-old on November 4, took to Instagram on Friday to poke fun at Kim's 40th birthday holiday earlier in October.

The Real Housewives of New York star shared a picture of her and her daughter Bryn sat atop the kitchen counter and wearing oversized party sunglasses.

The mother and daughter duo clutched cocktail glasses and were sat in front of a bar sign as they posed for the snap.

Bethenny captioned the post: "Took the family to my private (kitchen) island…privileged #blessed #humbled 🐚 🏝🏖🛩 #thisis50 #thisisme #turning50."

Another shot showed Bethenny's two dogs also getting in on the kitchen island action and wearing their very own sunglasses.

Bethenny's followers found the whole thing hilarious, with one person commenting: "The SHADE of it all 😂."

A second person wrote: "Bahahha I see what ya did there. Bless you 🤣💞 and happy birthday, 50 and fab."

And a third person added: "😂😂😂 Thank you for a much needed laugh!!!"

The post comes after Kim was heavily criticized for flying her family and friends to a private island to mark her 40th birthday.

Posting an array of lavish photos on Instagram, the reality TV star said: "40 and feeling so humbled and blessed. There is not a single day that I take for granted, especially during these times when we are all reminded of the things that truly matter.

"For my birthday this year, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it than with some of the people who have helped shaped me into the woman I am today.

"Before COVID, I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment."

She continued: "After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.

"We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more.

"I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is. #thisis40."

But rubbing it in everyone’s faces during a pandemic was a birthday gift from the social media queen that many of her fans could have done without.

Angry fans noticed that while she and her guests were enjoying A-list luxury, the local staff were expected to wear masks to wait on them hand and foot.

And they made the journey from California despite the state being under a non-essential travel ban.

One follower wrote of Kim: “Wow. Lucky you. Thanks for showing off your way awesome life to us unfortunate people who are still quarantined and our kids are still out of in person school and PEOPLE ARE DYING!! But sure, brag away. Disgusting."
