Back on the market! Bethenny Frankel revealed on Watch What Happens Live on Sunday, March 22, that she is a single woman once more.

The reality star, 44, split from her boyfriend Michael "Mac" Cerussi III just a few weeks ago, Us Weekly can confirm. 

"They’re in different places in their lives and they were headed down different paths," an insider tells Us of the couple's breakup. "They were cohabitating for a bit, but are not anymore." 

The Real Housewives of New York City star was first spotted with the financier, 35, in January 2014. The now-estranged pair took a vacation together as recently as New Year's Eve, hitting the beaches of Miami for a little romantic quality time.

Frankel and Cerussi have since parted ways, and the Skinnygirl maven is wasting no time getting back out there in the weeks since the split. 

"She’s been dating other people," the insider tells Us. "She'd be happy in a committed relationship with someone new, but truly doesn’t want to get married again."

The businesswoman was married twice before. She had a short marriage to Hollywood producer Peter Sussman in the mid-1990s, and went on to wed Jason Hoppy in 2010. The couple welcomed their first and only child together, daughter Bryn, in May 2010, but their marriage ended soon after, when the two separated in December 2012.

"I don't know what I'm looking for, and I don't know if I'm looking for anything," Frankel said on Sunday night's WWHL of her newly single status. "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."
