Not so fast! Bethenny Frankel may not be dating Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet after all. The Real Housewives of New York City star joked about the pesky rumors via Twitter on Tuesday, July 14.

"Wow #somanyboyfriendssolittletime," the 44-year-old wrote. "How did I manage to be at a @Dodgers game & be in the Hamptons at the same time?!!! @ericstonestreet."

Stonestreet quipped back: "Hey @Bethenny. Im a big fan. Can I get a follow?"

The twosome aren't serious (yet!), but there's always a possibility. "They have so much fun together," the source tells Us of the pair, who first met in April. Stonestreet, 43, has traveled to NYC and the Hamptons to visit the reality star, and "they're seeing where it goes." (The source adds that Frankel is specifically denying about attending the baseball game.)

"This is so dumb. They are friends and have a lot of mutual friends in the same circle," a second source tells Us. "They definitely are fond of each other and like each other but it’s not serious."

Us broke the news in March that Frankel had split from financier boyfriend Mac Cerussi after more than a year of dating. The Skinnygirl mogul previously was married to Hollywood producer Peter Sussman in the mid-1990s and split from husband Jason Hoppy in December 2012 after two years of marriage. The exes — who share daughter Bryn, 5 — have been locked in a volatile custody battle ever since.

"I'm actively going on dates, but I'm not sexually active," Frankel exclusively told Us in April. "I think I need to date someone who's African-American. "I just think I need to broaden my resume."

Stonestreet, for his part, has dabbled in online dating in the past to find his perfect match. "I've gone out with a couple girls in L.A. that I met on Tinder, like on real dates," he told Howard Stern in January 2014. "It's hard to meet people." The ABC star split from his Broadway girlfriend Katherine Tokarz in September 2012 after three years of dating.
