Bethenny Frankel may not be starring on the upcoming 12th season of The Real Housewives of New York City but when it comes to her personal life, she continues to keep her fans and followers in the loop with the latest happens in her life on Instagram.
Most recently, as revealed by Bravo’s The Daily Dish, Frankel took to her social media page to share a photo of her boyfriend, Paul Bernon, and their dogs, Biggy and Smallz, and confirmed she was feeling “loved.”
According to Bravo’s report, Frankel, who walked away from an “astronomical” paycheck when she quit The Real Housewives of New York City last August, is doing just fine when it comes to love. In fact, in addition to her boyfriend, who she began dating about a year and a half ago, she has the love of her two pets and her young daughter, Bryn Casey Hoppy.
The report also confirmed that Frankel and her boyfriend have purchased a home together in Boston.
According to Frankel, her late fiance, Dennis Shields, would approve of her romance with Bernon and recently spoke about his potential thoughts on her Instagram page.
“We are in good hands with Paul, who you would like and respect and vice versa. He looks out for us and is very caring. You always said I would find someone who would take care of me,” she said in a statement to him last month.
Shields died of an apparent overdose in August 2018.
After deciding to exit The Real Housewives of New York City last summer, Frankel shared a statement with Variety
“I have decided to leave the ‘Housewives’ franchise to explore my next chapter,” she said. “It’s time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett, producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women. With the changes in modern culture, I want to highlight the strength, confidence and unstoppable power that women have.”
Frankel went on to say that when it came to her time on The Real Housewives of New York City, she is grateful for the opportunity.
“My experience at Bravo has been an incredibly magical ride. I am so grateful to them for highlighting my entrepreneurialism and allowing me to pave the way for many women to achieve their goals. I am excited for my future. The best is yet to come,” she teased.
