Is Bethenny Frankel ready for another marriage? The Real Housewives of New York star just finalized her divorce from Jason Hoppy, yet she recently rocked a diamond on her ring finger. Was she hinting that her boyfriend, Dennis Shields, popped the big question?
According to Reality Tea, Frankel showed off her new diamond ring on social media. The pic featured Frankel hugging Shields while holding up her massive new ring to the camera.
Frankel and Shields have only been dating for around two months now. Furthermore, Frankel previously told fans that she would not remarry after going through a difficult breakup with Hoppy.
However, the ring indicates that Frankel and Shields got engaged in some kind of secret ceremony. Of course, Frankel is known for her big PR stunts, and there is a possibility that the ring means nothing.
Frankel has since deleted the picture from her social media, probably because she doesn’t want Shields to face public scrutiny.
Shields is currently going through a divorce of his own with Jill Shields, who also happens to be an old friend of the RHONY star.
While it still isn’t if Frankel and Shields are engaged, the Daily Dish is reporting that the couple is not planning a wedding.
“Bethenny is happy and enjoying her summer,” an insider revealed.
Indeed, Bethenny Frankel’s previous comments indicate that she doesn’t want to walk down the aisle anytime soon.
“You know the definition of insanity is repeating the same behavior and expecting different results, so I’m not going to make the same mistake twice,” she explained. “So, if I’m happy in a relationship, I want to keep it private for as long as I can. It has not worked out with me well in the past to be gushing over being really happy – I’ll leave that part to my cast mates.”
Until more is revealed, it looks like Frankel’s relationship with Shield is going strong, but they aren’t ready to tie the knot anytime soon. For now, Frankel will avoid a Luann de Lesseps type of engagement.
Speaking of her biggest enemy, the Hollywood Gossip is reporting that the two women cannot put an end to their latest feud. During the latest installment of the Real Housewives of New York, Frankel explained that she has some dirt about de Lessep’s future husband, Tom D’Agostino, that might put an end to the wedding plans.
The details are murky, but the text messages include pictures of D’Agostino with another woman, who is clearly not his bride-to-be.
As far as de Lesseps is concerned, she is understandably upset with how Frankel has acted towards her in recent episodes. She even labeled Frankel as a terrorist during one of their exchanges.
More recently, Frankel questioned de Lesseps about her romance with D’Agostino and tried to come away with some more dirt.
“I mean, I know this is going to sound ridiculous because I know you had a different type of European relationship with Alex – are you guys monogamous?” Frankel asked her.
“Of course, of course,” de Lesseps answered back. “What do you mean ‘monogamous’? We’re getting married!”
A puzzled de Lesseps then shared her true feelings to the camera.
“Why are you asking such bizarre questions? We just got engaged, and you’re asking me if we’re monogamous? Who asks that?” de Lesseps shared. “It makes me think that Bethenny is up to something. She’s not being mean, she’s not being argumentative – she’s just being coy.”
With Frankel’s relationship with Shields heating up, there’s no telling how de Lesseps will react in the coming weeks. New episodes of The Real Housewives of New York air Wednesday nights on Bravo.
