Bethenny Frankel has a new man in her life! 

The Real Housewives New York City star is casually dating CNBC's Marcus Lemonis, a source confirms to E! News. 

Us Weekly first reported that the 44-year-old SkinnyGirl mogul and the 41-year-old host of The Profit "met over the summer," with a source adding, "He's really smart, successful, and so nice. They really like each other." 

Last month, Frankel was romantically linked to Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet. The reality star did not confirm or deny the rumors, though she did tell E! News in August that she's enjoying the dating scene

"I'm not confirming or denying anything because I decided that I'm not doing that. But I have been dating and I have been having a great time. I really have. I have enjoyed dating," she said, adding, "I will tell you that I am not in a serious relationship at all right now. I am dating."

Frankel, who is still going through divorce proceedings with ex Jason Hoppy more than two years since filing, previously dated Michael "Mac" Cerussi III, although she confirmed in March during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live that they had split

Most recently, the businesswoman opened up about her dating life during the RHONY reunion and said she's not attracted to men who want to be famous.

"I'm not attracted to someone who wanted to be on camera, and in fact, it's interesting, the people that I'm meeting and have been dating a good amount, everyone that I meet, that I like, no one has a Facebook profile, no one has Twitter, you can't even find anything about them on Google," she said on the episode, which aired last night. "It's not like I've looked or that it's just who I'm attracting has no interest in that, and that's exactly how I like it." 

Ironically, Lemonis does indeed have a Twitter account and the pair have previously chatted on the social media site. 

"Couldn't sleep. Found @marcuslemonis on @TheProfitCNBC I like him & his way of doing business," Bethenny wrote last month and Lemonis replied, inviting her to an event.
