    What pesky paps?

    Carlton Gebbia was more than happy to flaunt her bangin' bikini bod for a bevy of photographers when the now-former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star hit the beach in Malibu, Calif., on Sunday.

    Sporting a sexy bright red two-piece, the 40-year-old stunner put her enviable figure on full display as she soaked up the sun and the spotlight. Gebbia struck a number of sexy poses during the professional photo shoot, appearing comfortable as ever with her fit and trim shape.

    The mother of three also showed off her athletic side (clearly, she's no stranger to hitting the gym!) as she cartwheeled in the water and by the looks of that supertoned tummy, we can tell her hard work has paid off.

    Oh, and as for that Little Mermaid-style hair flip? We simply have to say: Work it, girl!

    Last week, sources confirmed to E! News that the brunette beauty and costar Joyce Giraud were both fired from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Both ladies joined the reality hit for its fourth season, which wrapped in March, after the exit of stars Taylor Armstrong, Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer.

    Gebbia later opened up about leaving the show, telling Giuliana Rancic that her firing was a "blessing in disguise."

    "I sort of look at it as a blessing in disguise because my husband does have a project in the works, a reality show," the franchise's first Wiccan revealed. "It's something that would give me the opportunity to work with him. I was contractually obligated for a three-year deal and if that's the case, I'm not anymore." 

    Despite her dismissal, Gebbia said she had "no regrets" and insisted that the show was a "great experience," but that doesn't mean she'll miss the drama. 

    "I would like to go into a show and not have to watch the knives coming at my back," she said. "That would be great!"
