The former ‘Real Housewives of New York City’ star has been widely criticised for the Instagram post.

The 43-year-old posed in her daughter Bryn’s Hello Kitty shorts-set and uploaded the photo to Instagram with the caption “This is my daughter’s nightgown and PJ shorts. Think we’re ready to start sharing clothes yet?”

The post has garnered over 1300 comments from users, many of whom slam the mother of one for being a bad influence.

Frankel, who founded the beverage company Skinnygirl Cocktails, has been vocal about her personal struggles with weight and years spent “hating herself” on various diets.

She, who was originally a chef by trade, also penned the book ‘Naturally Thin: Unleash Your Skinnygirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting' in 2009.

Fighting back at her critics, she took to Twitter to state, "When ur 4 year old peanut says 'mommy please put my dress on' & giggles uncontrollably, u do what ur told…”

An hour later, she wrote: "BREAKING NEWS! World Scandal: Former reality star, failed talk show host & cocktail maven jokes by wearing her kids' pjs! #itcantbetrue."
