Bethenny Frankel announced that she had begun dating someone new this season of The Real Housewives of New York City, following her longtime love Dennis Shields' passing in August 2018. Although her new boyfriend, Paul, hasn't been featured on the show, she has spoken about going to Boston to visit him, and her phone conversation with him was shown on Wednesday's episode of RHONY. Bethenny previously said of her new man, "He's incredible. He's a beautiful human being, inside and out." And her 9-year-old daughter, Bryn, agrees: "Bryn knows him, loves him," Bethenny said. "They're very, very similar people."
But what do the RHONY ladies think of Paul? Well, Tinsley Mortimer and her mom, Dale Mercer, revealed they spent time with him and his parents when he came down to Palm Beach with Bethenny. "I really like him. He's great: he's adorable and he's cool and he's fun and his parents are hilarious," Tinsley said, while Dale described him as "preppy" and "cute."
But Luann de Lesseps has questions on when exactly their relationship began: "I'm beginning to think this relationship that she has going on with this guy has been going on longer than we all think," she said.
