The Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel headed out in her home city Thursday, just one day after raising eyebrows for controversial comments on the show's season 8 premiere.

The 45-year-old reality star was seen walking her dog in Lower Manhattan on Thursday, just one day after the star suggested during Wednesday night's premiere that RHONY newbie Julianna (Jules) Wainstein might have an eating disorder.

"She looks like a really thin girl … she looks like there's an issue," Frankel said. "I wrote a book called Natural Thin. This is not natural thin."

The star dressed casually for the walk, wearing black leggings, a leather jacket and boots.

Frankel didn't back down from the comments later on Watch What Happens Live when a caller asked about her tendency to give the show's newbies a hard time.

"We have a little bit of a rocky road. Ultimately we're okay, but listen, they come in and I say what I think," she said. "It doesn't matter if you're new or old. I have ripped Ramona [Singer] and Luann [de Lesseps].

After the WWHL appearance, Frankel tweeted a response to a social media user who asked in a tweet if she considered herself judgmental.

Frankel replied: "Yes and no. I hold people accountable."
