Well, this is some… unexpected news. Bethenny Frankel has been single for a while now, ever since she ended her marriage to Jason Hoppy in 2012. Well, her romantic luck seems to be changing, because apparently she’s involved with Modern Family actor Eric Stonestreet, which… what?
E! was the first to report the news – here’s what they had to say:
While the relationship news may be new to many of us, these two have been enjoying each other’s company casually for a few months now. The pair were all smiles for the camera while attending the 2015 CAA Upfronts Celebration Party in New York City back in May, and were also spotted out and about together later that month.
Stonestreet even posted a photo of his girlfriend with gal-pal and fellow Housewife Carole Radziwill at the time, captioning the picture, “Took a picture of these 2 randos today.”
More recently, the new duo stepped out to enjoy a good ole baseball game together! An eyewitness tells E! News Stonestreet and Frankel attended the Los Angeles Dodgers game last Monday when the Boys in Blue played the Philadelphia Phillies.
Of course, the whole problem with this is that both Bethenny and Eric deny any kind of relationship and posted some tongue-in-cheek tweets to one another to dispel the rumours.

So, who knows what’s going on? Frankly, as mismatched as these two are, I actually think it would be kind of adorable, if I’m being honest. Why not?!
