No wedding bells for Bethenny?
Bethenny Frankel may have found a good guy, but she’s definitely taking things slow with beau Dennis Shields.
“He’s still in my life. I saw him last week for his birthday, but I’m not ready to settle down right now,” Bethenny recently revealed to PEOPLE. “The truth is, the world made it into something more than either of us have.”
While Dennis is divorcing his wife of twenty years, Bethenny says she’s not ready to be monogamous just yet.
“I care about him, but the bottom line is he’s still married. And I don’t want to stop the music yet. I’m not ready to be linked to any one person,” she explains. “I’ve known him for 27 years, and I care about him, but I’m keeping my options open,” she says. “I don’t know what the future holds. It’s not a heartbreak story; it’s a heart healing story.”
Bethenny finalized her divorce from ex-Jason Hoppy last July and these days she’s more focused on being a mom than a girlfriend.
“In the past, I’ve made some choices that were questionable in my opinion, for myself, and I’m looking at that. Given the circumstances of my previous relationship and the torment and difficulties I’ve had the last five years, I need to balance and rest and reflect,” she said. “It’s very easy to rush something or turn something into a solution, but right now I feel the solution is me spending time with myself and my daughter, trying to regroup and not hurry to find the answer.”
I think it’s smart for Bethenny to take her time when it comes to her love life. She rushed into her marriage with Jason and has spent the last four years trying to get divorced, so she needs time to breathe.
