Bethenny Frankel puts the short-shorts in water sports!

The 43-year-old former star of The Real Housewives of New York was spotted Sunday riding the waves atop a paddleboard with her hot new man, 34-year-old Michael "Mac" Cerussi III, during a jaunt to Shelter Island.

The paddle was all his, as the now former talk show host and Skinnygirl cocktails tycoon opted to let her beefy boyfriend do all the work. And it was wet-hair, don't-care for Bethenny—not to mention wet-shirt, don't-hurt!

Clad in denim cut-offs and a short white crop-top, she didn't seem to mind that the ocean spray had soaked her top straight through.

Frankel, who filed for divorce from second husband Jason Hoppy in January 2013, kicked off the rebound romance with her financier beau earlier this year.

During an appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live in May, the brunette beauty said, "I am dating and I'm happy. I'm good. I finally feel a little bit of liberation and a little bit of freedom, just a little bit of not, just feeling so bad. It's been a really, really hard time."

According to a source close to them, Mac continues to make those hard times easier. "He treats her really, really well and she's very happy," the insider told E! News in February. "They're together all the time."
