"No more pajamas!" Manhattan Supreme Court justice Ellen Gesmer told Frankel's lawyer during the reality star's divorce proceedings, reports the New York Daily News.
The lawyer, Allan Mayefsky, didn't disagree with the judge, but did say: "It was done as a joke."
"It's not a joke. Her child is not a joke," the judge replied sternly, saying Frankel's photo will have repercussions for Bryn for years to come.
She declined to comment later on when reporters asked about the judges statement to stop wearing her daughters clothes.
During a pre-taped episode of 'The Meredith Vieira Show' that aired on Friday, Frankel addressed the backlash, saying, "The truth of the matter is I don't really care what people think if I don't think I've done anything wrong."
"It was a dress of my daughter's, and she's like, 'Put this on,' and one of my friends was like, ‘Your Instagram game is weak.' So I just took a picture and thought it was cute," she said. "I had no idea that I would get that backlash."

"I had no idea, and I really didn't think it was that big of a deal," she added. "I didn't think people were going to start being anorexic because I put my daughter's clothes on. I just thought it was a ridiculous joke."
