Has The Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel finally met her match? According to a May 21 report by Radar Online, the reality star and single mother is currently dating Florida businessman Michael Toppel, who is reportedly worth a whopping $15 million.
The Real Housewives of New York star has yet to confirm her alleged relationship with Toppel. However, the two have been spotted together a number of times since March. Earlier this year, the pair was photographed in Miami, where they spent time together on the beach, and just weeks ago, they reportedly went on a number of dates in New York City.
Like The Real Housewives of New York star, Toppel has been divorced. In 2013, he and his former wife, Brooke Toppel Conway, split after ten years of marriage, claiming their relationship had been “irretrievably broken.” At the time, court documents confirmed Toppel was worth more than $15 million, and had monthly income of $61,000.
Although he had a prenup, much like The Real Housewives of New York star did with husband Jason Hoppy, Toppel agreed to pay Conway $450,000 in alimony and $5,000 a month.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, The Real Housewives of New York star split from her former boyfriend, Michael “Mac” Cerussi, earlier this year after dating for about a year-and-a-half. At the time, a source told Us Weekly the couple’s differing lifestyles were to blame for the end of their relationship.
“They’re in different places in their lives and they were headed down different paths. They were cohabitating for a bit, but are not anymore. She’s been dating other people. She’d be happy in a committed relationship with someone new, but truly doesn’t want to get married again.”
Despite their split, The Real Housewives of New York star only had good things to say about her former beau when she tweeted about the split last month.
Michael Cerussi is an amazing, kind man, son & friend. Negativity written about him was intentionally placed to hurt him and me.

Frankel first confirmed the split during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, telling host Andy Cohen, “I’m not dating right now. I wish that my dating life was as colorful and exciting as it’s written about, but right now I’m kind of at a standstill.”
Prior to Cerussi, Frankel was married to Hoppy for nearly 3 years before splitting. The couple shares one daughter together, Bryn Casey.
