Bethenny Frankel's got a new boyfriend and this one could really stick
When Skinnygirl founder Bethenny Frankel puts her mind to something, there's a 100 percent chance it's getting accomplished. That's why it's no surprise that she's got herself a summer boyfriend. According to E! Online, she's dating NYC banker Dennis Shields. The two are even going out in public.
Shields is the CEO of a company called LawCash, says the New York Post. According to LawCash's website, they provide "litigation funding for thousands of potential plaintiffs, plaintiffs, and attorneys." As someone who's watched Frankel for years, I think she needs a powerful man by her side. Dennis, is it you?
Insiders report the pair is getting along swimmingly in these early stages of their relationship. “Bethenny and Dennis seem happy together and have traveled together,” a source spilled to Us Weekly. “They have gone out with Carole [Radziwill] and Adam [Kenworthy], and have hung out with each other’s friends." Since Radziwill and Kenworthy are also RHONY co-stars, that sounds like just as much of a filming opportunity as a double date, but we'd never put it past Frankel to kill two birds with one stone.
And although Frankel is still embroiled in her never-ending divorce from Jason Hoppy, that may not be as much of a problem. Shields is allegedly still just separated from his wife as well. They sound like birds of a slightly dysfunctional feather, and we'd better get to see them on the next season of RHONY.
