A mogul match! Bethenny Frankel is dating CNBC’s The Profit’s Marcus Lemonis, Us Weekly exclusively confirms.
“They met over the summer and have been seeing each other. He’s really smart, successful, and so nice. They really like each other,” a source tells Us of the Real Housewives of New York City star, 44, and the businessman, 41.
The couple have been enjoying their time in and out of the city, and attended Ron Perelman’s Apollo in the Hamptons dinner on Aug. 17 together, a second source tells Us.
Back in July, the Skinnygirl mogul gave Lemonis a shout-out on Twitter. “Couldn't sleep. Found @marcuslemonis on @TheProfitCNBC I like him & his way of doing business,” she shared with her followers.
Earlier this month the Bravo star joked about rumors she was dating friend and Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet, and in March told Andy Cohen on WWHL that she didn’t know what kind of guy she was looking for. "I think the kind of guy that I would need to be with has to be able to handle me, which is a tall order,” she said.
Frankel filed for divorce from her estranged husband, Jason Hoppy, in January 2013. They’ve been engaged in a nasty battle over their assets ever since. On June 25, the exes met in court to continue fighting over their $5 million Tribeca loft and Frankel’s multi-million dollar Skinnygirl empire.
