Bethenny Frankel is trying her best to keep a lid on her new boyfriend, Dennis Shields.
However, some of the ladies of the Real Housewives of New York are not supportive of Frankel’s decision to keep her romance a secret.
An inside source told Radar Online that Frankel “refused to film with Dennis, saying that she wanted to keep her personal life separate from the show.”
Dorinda Medley and Ramona Singer weren’t happy with Frankel not allowing cameras into her personal life.
“[Singer and Medley] were annoyed by that comment,” the source continued. “It’s a reality show. What does Bethenny think she’s doing?”
Frankel’s decision follows what has become a lackluster season for the hit reality show. With Frankel refusing to let fans see her romance, fans don’t believe the drama is going to pick up anytime soon.
“Everyone feels like this season has been boring so far, and viewers have sounded off about it,” the insider explained. “Bethenny’s return hasn’t helped the show pick up any steam.”
According to Enstarz, Frankel recently settled her divorce with Jason Hoppy, which would make her new love life even more exciting on the show.
However, Frankel is unwilling to discuss the details of the divorce settlement.
“Out of respect for her privacy and well-being of her daughter, Bethenny is declining to comment,” Allan Mayefsky, Frankel’s attorney, shared. “We can confirm that the divorce has been resolved. Out client is ecstatic that this long chapter is over, and she is looking forward to moving on with her life.”
Unfortunately, fans won’t get a behind-the-scenes look at Frankel’s relationship with Shields this season.
Meanwhile, Bethenny Frankel is trying to stir up other drama on the show.
“All summer she was extremely desperate,” Frankel admitted. “The next thing I know, she’s in love, she’s getting married. … So we’re like, ‘Is this really happening?'”
“Wednesday at 2:30 in the morning, I receive a text – and this is a person who has no dog in this fight,” Frankel recalled to Sonja Morgan. “Someone sent me a series of texts that are so incriminating that I can’t imagine how it wouldn’t blow up this whole engagement. This could possibly mean that the wedding will be canceled.”
Of course, Morgan has her own reservations about the wedding.
As fans are well aware, Morgan has a history with D’Agostino and isn’t thrilled about him moving on.
“This is very awkward,” Morgan said. “Because I lost a companion, I lost a lover and lost a dinner date.”
For de Lesseps, she doesn’t care about her fiancé’s actions in the past and referee to them as “BL – Before Lu.”
“It’s very dismissive to me because I am BL,” Morgan shared. “I’m Before Lu. But I’m sucking it up and waiting for AL – for After Lu.”
At one point, Frankel captured a video of Radziwill eating a sandwich in her two piece bikini.
For her part, the Skinnygirl mogul wore a blue bikini and enjoyed a nice swim in the pool.
New episodes of the Real Housewives of New York air Wednesday nights on Bravo.
