Star has the scoop on what’s eat­ing the Real House­wife.

What’s the skinny on Bethenny Frankel? The Real Housewives of New York City star drew gasps at the Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret Fash­ion Show, where she man­aged to look puny even in com­par­i­son to the wil­lowy mod­els! “Any­one can see her clothes are fall­ing off her,” frets a friend close to the 48-yearold Skinnygirl mogul, who has had a rough few years. Not only did her bit­ter divorce and pro­tracted cus­tody bat­tle with Ja­son Hoppy wreak havoc on her life, in Au­gust her on-off boyfriend Den­nis Shields died of a drug over­dose, leav­ing the re­al­ity star bereft. And her emo­tional an­guish is tak­ing its toll on her body. “Bethenny was dev­as­tated when Den­nis died. Deep down, she feels guilty and pow­er­less that she couldn’t do any­thing to help him,” con­fides the in­sider, say­ing Bethenny is haunted that she de­clared Den­nis wasn’t Mr. Right on RHONY just days be­fore his shock­ing death. “She hasn’t been able to eat or sleep since it hap­pened,” sighed the source. “She knows she’s lost an ex­treme amount of weight, but that’s all due to grief. She has no ap­petite. Food doesn’t ap­peal to her. She’s de­pressed and griev­ing.” Sub­sist­ing on a packet of nuts, stalks of cel­ery and hot lemon wa­ter, dis­traught Bethenny has turned a healthy pas­time into an ob­ses­sion. “The only thing that takes her mind off things is ex­er­cise, but it’s sur­pris­ing she has the en­ergy. At this point, she’s burn­ing more calo­ries than she’s con­sum­ing,” laments the pal. “Her friends are wor­ried, be­cause she’s get­ting scrawnier by the day. This has been so tough on her, ev­ery­one just wants to see her happy and healthy.”
