New York housewife Bethenny Frankel appears to have a new man in her life. On Monday, according to a May 18 report by the Daily Mail Online, Frankel was seen walking the streets of New York hand-in-hand with a mystery man. During the outing, Frankel wore dark jeans with a cream-colored sweater and tan jacket, as her companion kept it simple with a white button-down and gray pants.
Frankel’s New York outing comes a couple of months after the Real Housewives of New York City star split from Michael Cerussi, whom she had been dating since late 2013.

Frankel married husband Jason Hoppy in March 2010 and welcomed her first child weeks later. However, by 2012, the couple had called it quits and quickly began fighting for the custody of daughter Bryn, as well as Frankel’s Skinnygirl earnings, which Hoppy claimed to have helped her make. Even now, nearly three years later, their divorce has yet to be finalized.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Frankel was most recently linked to Michael Toppel, a businessman, who she allegedly went on two New York dates with this month. However, when comparing the Daily Mail Online‘s photos of Frankel’s latest outing to that of her outing with Toppel in Miami, via Radar Online, Toppel does not appear to be the man holding hands with Frankel in New York on Monday.
In an interview with Haute Living, via Bravo’s The Daily Dish, Frankel spoke of her dating issues, revealing she may not be the best at the early stages of her relationship.
“I don’t think that I actually suck when I’m in a relationship, but I think that I haven’t gone with my gut enough. I’ve made decisions out of fear, which is the biggest mistake people can make. You have to make decisions out of truth.”
During the same interview, Frankel offered some advice to others in the dating pool.
“Don’t medicate by drinking too much, eating too much, or putting your face in a pint full of ice cream. Go out, be confident, look good, try to feel good, and don’t beat yourself up and do things that are self-destructive. Don’t text and call and drink and obsess—it’s so hard. I really think that you should process and go through it.”
