Bethenny Frankel, Dennis Shields


The summer of love has officially hit Bethenny Frankel.

As the Real Housewives of New York City star continues to endure a dramatic season of her hit Bravo reality show, multiple sources confirm to E! News that a special man has entered her life.

The Skinnygirl founder is currently seeing banker Dennis Shields.

"They've been dating since at least the holidays," a source shared with E! News who revealed the couple went on vacation with co-star Carole Radziwill and her boyfriend Adam Kenworthy.

Another source confirms the timeline of when their romance began and adds that while Dennis never filmed Real Housewives of New York City, he did show up during filming one day where he stayed away from the cameras.

Earlier this week, photos surfaced of Bethenny and her new man enjoying an afternoon in New York City. As cameras flashed away, the pair was seen holding hands and chatting away during a daytime date.

While the best-selling author hasn't commented on the relationship in quite some time, she has never been shy about speaking out when romance rumors hit the press.

Back in February, reports first surfaced that Bethenny was seeing Dennis. Ultimately, the Bravolebrity warned fans not to believe everything they read.

"FYI, I'm dating abt 65 guys," she shared on Twitter. "They're all married, rich, famous & I'm pregnant w multiple babies. Oh & Guess what? I'm married too." In other words, that may be Bethenny's nice way of saying "get off my jock."
