Bethenny Frankel has been pretty open about her love life (or lack thereof—I mean, she even wrote a book about how much she sucks at relationships). So when reports surfaced that the Real Housewives of New York star was dating Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet, it came as a bit of a surprise—even to Bethenny herself. After the story hit Bethenny took to Twitter to address on the apparent coupling.
Although the Skinnygirl mogul seemingly shut things down, that didn’t stop some fellow Bravolebrities from weighing in on her alleged relationship. Co-star Luann de Lesseps spoke to People over the weekend and admitted that there doesn’t seem to be much clout to the romantic rumors. “I don’t know if it’s true,” she said. “I can’t picture her with that guy, but I’m sure he’s a wonderful, lovely man.”
Patti Stanger also commented while in attendance at Jill Zarin’s charity event in Southampton. “They’re both strong, powerful, and both make money,” she said. “It’s an unusual pairing, but Eric is hysterical…and funny [guys] can get the hot girls.”
Today Bethenny took to Twitter again to address the issue, and it seemed like she was assuring fans not to read too much into her fellow Bravolebrities’ remarks.
