Hollywood, there’s a new couple in town! The reality star Bethenny Frankel is reportedly dating CNBC's Marcus Lemonis.
The Hollywood couple alert was confirmed by Us Weekly, whose source told the magazine that the two “have been seeing each other.” The insider revealed that Frankel and CNBC’s “The Profit” star “met over the summer” and even described Lemonis as “really smart, successful and so nice." The source added that the two “really like each other.”
The “Real Housewives of New York City” star and the businessman have reportedly spent time with each other “in and out of the city” and even attended Ron Perelman’s Apollo in the Hamptons dinner together on Aug. 17.
The 44-year-old reality star was previously linked to “Modern Family” Eric Stonestreet, although she did not deny or confirm the dating rumors, E! News reported. However, Frankel told E! earlier this month that she has been dating and “having a great time.” The TV personality even shared that she is “not in a serious relationship at all right now.”
During the reunion episode of “Real Housewives of New York” aired on Bravo Tuesday, Frankel opened up about her dating life. According to E!, the businesswoman shared that she is not attracted to “someone who wanted to be on camera.”
“It's interesting, the people that I'm meeting and have been dating a good amount, everyone that I meet, that I like, no one has a Facebook profile, no one has Twitter, you can't even find anything about them on Google," Frankel said. "It's not like I've looked or that it's just who I'm attracting has no interest in that, and that's exactly how I like it."
The entertainment portal found it ironic that the reality star is now romantically linked to Lemonis, who has a Twitter account. It's also reportedly odd that the two previously chatted on the social media site.
Frankel was married to Jason Hoppy, whom she divorced in January 2013. The two is said to have been engaged in a legal battle over their assets since their divorce.
