We’ve been wondering for awhile now – is Bethenny Frankel engaged or isn’t she?Â Although she has openly said that she plans on marrying boyfriend Jason Hoppy, there was never an official engagement announcement.Â Well, it looks like the days of being a single housewife are officially over for Bethenny!
“It feels great, because I’m with the right person,” Bethenny told PEOPLE. “He may be regretting it because it’s been beyond a week and he’s in panic mode â€“ [but] no, we’re enjoying it.” Jason added, “She is very much a handful but one thing she did say to me is she needs a man that can handle her and that I can.”
Bethenny confirmed that the couple got engaged on October 8th.Â So how did Jason manage to do it?
Bethenny arrived back at her apartment after filming The Real Housewives of New York City to find her entire hallway lit with candles and decorated with rose petals.Â Jason made sure to dress up her dog, Cookie, with matching pink bows so he could witness the occasion.Â When Jason got down on one knee, he presented Bethenny with a 6.5 carat pear-shaped stone accompanied by two side stones making it 8 carats in total.Â He said, “You are the love of my life. Will you marry me?”
The couple still has not set a wedding date. Congratulations you two!
