Bethenny Frankel is engaged — just weeks after finalizing her nasty divorce with her ex-husband.
The former ‘Real Housewives Of New York’ star is preparing to walk down the aisle with boyfriend, Paul Bernon, and rumors swirled surrounding a massive diamond she was sporting on her finger over the weekend in Florida.
Bernon is an entrepreneur, film producer, and real estate developer. The couple started dating back in 2018, but Frankel was still working out a settlement and custody agreement with her estranged husband, Jason Hoppy.

Bethenny has been open about her relationship with Bernon, calling him “wonderful,” last year, and introducing him to her 10-year-old daughter.
“He’s a good person who I love,” she told People.
She continued, “I don’t know if it’s a yin to my yang, but he’s really relaxed, he’s mellow and he’s very, very funny.”
The former reality star discussed the relationship during an episode of ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen’ where she discussed Paul meeting her daughter. “Bryn knows him and loves him,” she said. Adding, “They’re very, very similar people.”

Interestingly, during the same interview, the Bravo boss questioned Bethenny on possible marriage to her new BF, saying, “Are you and Paul talking marriage?”
Frankel responded, “Um, I’m still married.”
The news was shocking, considering Bethenny had been separated from Hoppy for over EIGHT years. But, it appeared they had not completely settled their divorce case. As you know, the couple married in 2010 and split in 2012. The couple settled the financial part of their divorce in 2016, but have been at odds over the custody of their daughter.
The engagement comes as no surprise to most people who follow the former reality star after she continued to gush over her handsome BF on social media.
Frankel posted a heartwarming birthday message to him, saying, “Happy Birthday Paul…have the most beautiful day ever. You are so loving and so loved. The rest of my sentiments, feelings, and wishes for you are deep & private, the way we like it…xoxo.”
Plus, in September, the couple celebrated their anniversary where she posted another sweet message, saying, “Having such a supportive and loving partner makes me a better person & inspires me to achieve the impossible. Happy Anniversary! I love you and thank you for the most beautiful year!”
