Bethenny Frankel may just have published a book called I Suck At Relationships So You Don’t Have To, but it sounds like Frankel hasn’t actually sworn off dating completely. In fact, Bethenny appears to be busy when it comes to going on dates and hanging out with new men. Before filming The Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny was dating Michael Cerussi, but he didn’t want to be a part of the show.
It did seem that Bethenny Frankel was really happy in that relationship, as they were often spotted in Miami on the beach. However, he had no interest in participating on the Bravo show, and she broke up with him. Bethenny chose Bravo over her relationship. But it appears she has found someone who can accept her role on The Real Housewives of New York.
According to a new Radar Online report, Bethenny Frankel has been spotted holding hands with a new man in New York. This picture was taken a few days ago as she is still sporting her long hair in the picture. The man she is holding hands with is Peter Chalif, a 41-year-old financial advisor for Citigroup Global Markets.
Bethenny Frankel has revealed that she is ready to start dating again, even though she isn’t fully divorced yet. Bethenny had hoped to have a friendship with her estranged husband, but apparently Jason Hoppy is making it very difficult for her. Maybe Bethenny is finding support in Peter, and the great thing is that he may not need her for anything but love.
Apparently, Frankel’s new fling owns a $3.7 million mansion in New Jersey that has quite the history. It was supposedly owned by Thomas Edison’s son at one time. In addition, Chalif makes his own money and could be interested in Frankel for who she is and not her bank account.
“On the surface, Peter seems to be the perfect guy Bethenny’s always wanted. He’s rich and good looking and appears to have a good heart,” a source has revealed about the duo’s new relationship.
It is no secret that Frankel is still struggling with her divorce. Bethenny is sharing custody of little Bryn with Jason, and this week on The Real Housewives of New York, she had a complete breakdown over the emotions she is experiencing. However, she is making an effort to be the best mother she can be. According to the Inquisitr, Bethenny has decided to not hire a nanny and instead spend as much time with her daughter as possible.
