No awkward run-ins for Bethenny Frankel! The Real Housewife-turned-TV talk show host has decided to rent out a second NYC apartment in order to spend more alone time with her daughter -- and to keep her new boyfriend separate from her ex, a source tells Us Weekly.
Frankel, 43, shares custody of 3-year-old Bryn with her estranged husband Jason Hoppy, who has remained in the former couple's Tribeca loft since their separation 14 months ago.
The former Real Housewives of New York star has moved on to financier boyfriend Michael Cerussi, and an insider tells Us that "They're exclusive."
But in order to keep her dating life separate from future ex-husband, the Skinnygirl mogul has rented out this new space to keep Hoppy, 42, away from Cerussi, 34.
Hoppy "has been offered millions to settle, but asked for quadruple," the source continued. Frankel filed for divorce in January 2013, causing her hubby to file his own papers for primary custody of Bryn. They have failed to settle in the 14 months since the separation.
