Former RHONY Star Bethenny Frankel Splits From Boyfriend Paul Bernon After 2 Years of Dating

It’s over!

Bethenny Frankel has split from boyfriend Paul Bernon after 2 years of dating.

A source tells Us Weekly that Bethenny and Paul broke up “a couple [of] weeks ago.”

“They are saying it’s because of distance, but you know Bethenny,” another insider told Page Six of the split.

The former Real Housewives of New York star and Bernon started dating in October 2018. They were first spotted together packing on the PDA in Boston two months after Bethenny’s on-again, off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields died.

In July 2019, Bethenny gushed about how her relationship with Paul allowed her to feel “happy in a way that’s different” than anything she’s ever experienced in all her years of dating.

“Not a high or a low, just a balance — which, if you know my personality at all, it’s not often that balanced,” she admitted on Live With Kelly and Ryan. “But I feel just balanced and healthy.”

Two months later, Bethenny and Paul’s relationship got more serious as they began house-hunting together.

“They live together in the Back Bay area [in Boston] now,” a source told Us Weekly at the time. “She has been spending a lot more time up there. They are house-hunting in the New England area.”

The Skinnygirl mogul was previously married to  Peter Sussman from 1996 to 1997. She also shares her 10-year-old daughter Bryn Hoppy with estranged husband, Jason Hoppy.  The former reality TV couple married in 2010 but split in 2012 after almost three years of marriage.

While many believed that Bethenny and Jason finalized their divorce in 2016, it turns out that’s not the cast.

In September 2020, Bethenny confirmed on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen that she is still legally married to Jason.

“I’m still married,” B confessed when he asked if she was thinking about marrying Paul. “Crickets again! And scene.”

RHONY will return to Bravo in 2021.
