Bethenny Frankel has a new man and he may just have the approval of two very important Bravolebrities.
And as soon as the news broke, we just had to talk about it with some of Frankel's friends. Turns out Patti Stanger is a major supporter of this blossoming new relationship.
"It's unusual. But they're both successful, they're both smart," she told E! News Tuesday night at Lelo's Pop-Up Shop at New York's Pleasure Chest. "It's great for her to get on the acting radar and say she's dating actors so she can jump up."
She added, "It's a bit of social-climbing move. But Eric's a cool, midwestern dude."
