Bethenny Frankel, Us Weekly

Her new series may be called Bethenny Getting Married? But the titular question might as well be, Is Bethenny Frankel getting skinny too fast?

Super slimmed-down pictures of the Real Housewives of New York star appeared in the latest issue of US Weekly—just three weeks after giving birth to daughter Bryn—raising concerns over her rapid weight loss and the pressure it may put on "everyday" new moms. 

"I didn't do anything drastic," Bethenny said today. "I thought it wasn't going to be so easy, but I realized that walking, doing yoga, being normal it comes off. The people who have a major struggle probably go off the rails, they probably go to McDonald's."

Uh huh.

Of course, she's not the only celebrity mom who seemed to lose weight at lightning speed after baby is born…

Heidi Klum The supermodel is also a bit of a supermom when it comes to her rapid returns to the runway. When the mother-of-four gave birth to son Henry in 2005, she was back out strutting her stuff 8 weeks later. And after the arrival of her latest, daughter Lou, it was a mere 5 weeks before she was cruising the catwalk again.

Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett The reality star griped weekly about her weight on her E! series, but still managed to get her post-baby body down 25 pounds in 8 weeks. Just in time to strike a pose with her little guy Hank on the cover of In Touch. In a bikini!

Kate Hudson In preparation for her 2005 movie The Skeleton Key, the actress dropped the weight she had gained while pregnant with her son Ryder. So much so that several tabloids accused her of having an eating disorder. Kate ended up taking legal action and won.  

Angelina Jolie Sure, the Oscar winner may have taken a whole 3 months (an eternity for Hollywood moms) to get back in shape in time to promote Changeling, but then again, she did have twins.   

Gisele Bündchen Six weeks after the stork brought baby boy Benjamin, the Brazilian beauty was back in business. She even got her son in on the action soon after for the pages of Vogue. (Posing for pics, that is, not losing weight.)
