She may not be a housewife, but Bethenny Frankel may not look like a bachelorette either.

The Real Housewives of New York City star got Bravo fans talking this week when she stepped out holding hands with a mystery man.

While the pair has yet to officially announce their relationship status, the SkinnyGirl founder certainly played down any talk of a blossoming relationship on Twitter.

"I can't wait to find out who my new boyfriend is today," she tweeted in her signature humor. "Guesses? Yours is as good as mine. #idontsuckatmakingpeoplethinkihaveaboyfriend"

Although Bethenny continues to endure a messy divorce, the SkinnyGirl creator has been vocal about not giving up on love. While she's against online dating and Tinder, the 44-year-old always has her eyes and heart open.

"I do believe in love and I'm totally keeping my options open and I've met incredible men," she shared with E! News. "Bad apples don't have to spoil the whole bunch. I'm not bitter, I love meeting new people."

But as any single person can attest to, there are always a few characteristics that one looks to when they are single and ready to mingle. In Bethenny's case, brains always come before beauty.

"I really like talking to men about business and I like bouncing ideas off of them and I like someone who's really passionate and driven," she confessed. "Drive is way more important to me than looks. I like someone who's very, very smart, intellectual, witty. All those things that, a lot of time, are in an older man I would say. Or at least my age."
