Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl cocktail was just pulled from Whole Foods.

The dispute that lead to the diss by Whole Foods is reportedly over the ingredients of the reality star’s Skinnygirl cocktail.

According to the Huffington Post, Whole Foods found out that Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl cocktail ‘natural ingredients’ were not so natural and immediately yanked the product from its stores.

According to TMZ, a Whole Foods employee confirmed this. TMZ reported that the employee in Michigan said that the products were briefly sold at his store but confirmed that the line was pulled because the ingredients are not natural.

Frankel is best known for her stint on “Real Housewives of NYC” and “Bethenny Getting Married?”

Frankel used her reality fame to jump start her cocktail collection that includes a margarita and a sangria that just launched this past June.

“She has launched the Skinnygirl Margarita, a bottled, pre-mixed beverage made with clear tequila, lime juice and only a splash of citrus liqueur, which drastically reduces the calories of the traditional cocktail.  Lightly sweetened with agave nectar, it has only 100 calories in a full 4 oz. serving,” states her website. “Made out of white grapes and naturally sweetened with fruit essence, it’s only 134 calories per 5 oz. serving.”

She’s also the author of Naturally Thin, The Skinnygirl Dish and A Place of Yes.
