Bethenny Frankel Has a Surprising Connection to Her New Man's Ex

The #RHONY mogul spilled new details about her beau on Twitter.

Do Women Trust Luann?

Yes, Bethenny Frankel is technically dating a married man, and she gives "zero f***s" what you think about it. That's why The Real Housewives of New York City entrepreneur, who is also still in the process of divorcing her estranged husband Jason Hoppy, isn't afraid to open up about her new beau on Twitter.

In addition to revealing that she's dating a man who is legally married but separated from his wife, Bethenny also spilled that she and his ex-wife actually go way back. "I went to high school [with] his ex wife 30 yrs ago," Bethenny said about her new man while shutting down one Twitter hater Tuesday.


That tidbit was actually previously reported by The New York Post in February, who described the ex-wife of Bethenny's beau Dennis Shields as "an old high school pal of Bethenny's," even though she said they just went to the same school. 

This revelation comes less than a week after Bethenny fired back at Luann de Lesseps for calling her a "hypocrite" for "dating married men" in an interview with E! News following a report by The Daily Mail that showed the Skinnygirl mogul out and about in New York and holding hands with Dennis. 

It sounds like it's going to take a lot more than that for Luann to ruffle Bethenny's feathers. Or... maybe that has already happened.
