When you live in the public eye, nothing you do remains truly hidden. Especially when that thing is a breakup, and you were once on The Real Housewives of New York City. Yes, we’re talking about Bethenny Frankel and her split from film producer Paul Bernon.
Bethenny Frankel and Paul Bernon: A Relationship Timeline
According to Bethenny herself, her romance with Paul started in late 2018 when they went out for a couple of dates. This happened after her long-time on and off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields died of an alleged overdose. As she was still recovering from the loss, she didn’t want to rush things, and Paul just reappeared at the right time. He was courteous and kind, and Bethenny fell hard for him. Unfortunately, they decided to split up somewhere at the beginning of October this year after almost two years of dating. On a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Bethenny shared that the separation was amicable and that there were no bad feelings. “Some things just don’t continue, and it’s not negative,” she explained.
Bethenny Is Actually Still Married
In an earlier interview with Andy Cohen on the Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, when asked about the likelihood of her marrying Paul, Bethenny said, “I’m still married.” She was referring to Jason Hoppy, who she married in 2010 and allegedly divorced three years later. Unfortunately for fans, she didn’t elaborate further, but it was obvious she wanted to dodge the relationship topic altogether.
As for what’s ahead for Bethenny Frankel, it certainly doesn’t include her coming back to The Real Housewives of New York City in the near future. She’s set to star in a reality competition series on HBO max, titled The Big Shot with Bethenny, where she’ll set out to find the perfect addition to her executive team.
