The Real Housewives of New York City alum first went Instagram official with the entrepreneur in December 2018, shortly after the pair began dating that fall. At the time, Bethenny had referred to Paul as the man who “saved my life,” following the news that a special “someone” had helped her during a health emergency in which she suffered a severe allergic reaction and became unconscious after consuming soup.
Throughout their relationship, Bethenny seemed to split her time between living in New York and joining Paul in Boston. While the duo shared a few glimpses of the time they spent together over the summer, Bethenny had also previously opened up about the fact that they were self-quarantining apart in March due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
During the September 24 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Bethenny shared a revelation about her relationship status that left Andy Cohen shocked.
“Are you and Paul talking marriage?” Andy asked the RHONY mogul.
Bethenny answered with an update on her divorce battle with her ex-husband, Jason Hoppy, which has been ongoing for nearly a decade. Though it was reported that the divorce had been finalized in 2016, she said, “I’m still married,” to which Andy replied, “You’re killing me.” Bethenny and her ex-husband share a 10-year-old daughter, Bryn.
