Is there a new man in Bethenny Frankel’s life? The former Real Housewives of New York star was photographed frolicking on a beach in Miami on New Year’s Day with a hunky new guy – just one day after a passionate makeout session the day before. Hmmm….is our Skinnygirl going to be getting a little sumthin’ sumthin’ in 2014?
The reality star turned talk show host was in south Florida to ring in the New Year, where she celebrated with friends at the Mondrian South Beach hotel. An eyewitness says that the Bethenny host was with a group of pals that included the mystery man, and that there was something “definitely romantic” going on between them. “She seemed relaxed with him and having a great time. At the stroke of midnight, they shared a passionate kiss and proceeded to make out in front of everyone.” Unfortunately for us, “everyone” didn’t include any paparazzi, so we don’t have any photo evidence of the two swapping spit. Bummer, huh?
The next day, however, the Real Housewives of New York alum and her mysterious makeout partner hit the beach, and there were plenty of cameras around to document the occasion. Bethenny showed off her famous physique in a tiny black and white bikini, which she paired with an oversized hat and glasses, while her maybe-boyfriend showed off his bulky frame in white swim shorts. Later, the talk show host tweeted, “Finally a nice beach day in Miami. Jumping into the ocean to plunge into the new year,” but she made no mention of her swim partner.
Bethenny, who filed for divorce from Jason Hoppy a year ago, had previously been rumored to be dating hedge fund manager Warren Lichtenstein, but the duo never confirmed a romantic relationship. During an interview with Health last fall, however, she did reveal what she looks for in a man. “Acceptance, confidence, sense of humor, ability to take charge,” are the top qualities she’s looking for, she told the mag. A good gym partner probably ranks pretty high, too, but that probably goes without saying.
So what do you think about a possible new guy in Bethenny Frankel’s love life? Is this mystery man the one to “take charge” for her? Tell usin the comments!
