Is Bethenny Frankel finally lucky in love?
Yay for Bethenny! After her relationship on season 1 of ‘Real Housewives of NYC’ ended after boyfriend, financier Jason Colodne, lost his job as a result of being on the show, Bethenny has been one of NYC’s most eligible bachelorettes. On season 2 of the Bravo series, we saw just how tough (and selective) Frankel is when it comes to a man in her life, but also let down her guard to reveal moments of loneliness. She’s never hid the fact that she desperately wants to be a mother and get married and now it seems she’s found true love with Jason Hoppy.
Frankel met her new beau at Tenjune of all places, a nightclub in NYC’s meatpacking district. Frankel was getting her picture taken so Hoppy walked right up to the reality star after noticing the attention she was receiving from photographers and proceeded to ask, ‘Are you going to get that stick out of your a–?’ His comment was in reaction to the scowl on her face, but that quickly turned to a smile and Bethenny was hooked. The couple, who have been dating for eight months, kept their relationship under the radar until they were certain their love was the real deal. Their cover was blown last month when the couple enjoyed a romantic vacation at the grand opening of the Beaches Turks & Caicos in May.
“Real Housewives of New York City” fans will get to see the couple together on the series when it next airs. “He’ll be on the show. He’s totally cool about it, but not gung ho. He’s not Speidi,” Frankel said. “He’s excited for me and everything that’s happening for me.”
Recently, Frankel told People magazine, “I’m in love,” adding, “I’m pretty much certain I’m going to spend the rest of my life with him … I’m really happy.”
