The last time Bethenny Frankel gave an update on her love life, she confirmed that she had gotten back together with boyfriend Dennis Shields during The Real Housewives of New York City reunion in August. Now six months later, it appears that Bethenny is back on the market.
Bethenny shared that she is "single and dating" and is "utterly available" when PEOPLE caught up with her at the launch of her Skinnygirl Jeans line in New York City on Tuesday. She said that she meets people naturally in person but is also actively using dating apps, especially as she embarks on developing one herself. “I dabble,” she said. “I’m researching doing my own dating app so I have to test the waters.”
Bethenny also told Us Weekly at the event that her dating life will "go in spurts." "I’ll date a lot or I don’t date at all,” she added.
Of course, it's understandably hard to find time to date with the busy schedule that Bethenny has, which includes appearing on RHONY and the upcoming new series Bethenny & Fredrik, growing her Skinnygirl empire, providing relief to those affected by Hurricane Maria, and being mom to 7-year-old daughter Bryn Hoppy. “My personal life is suffering because I’m doing so much,” she told Us Weekly. “Which is why I haven’t had a date in a while.”
Bethenny also revealed to Us Weekly that she was getting ready to go on a date Wednesday. But the below Boomerang Bethenny posted on Instagram of the Skinnygirl Jeans launch makes it clear that she's loving the single life.
We'll catch up more with Bethenny when the new series Bethenny & Fredrik premieres Tuesday, February 6 at 10/9c. Check out a sneak peek, below.
