Love may just be in the air this season after all.

Shortly after E! News confirmed Jules Wainstein's marriage was ending, another Real Housewives of New York City star was just beginning to talk about a new relationship.

On tonight's all-new episode, Bethenny Frankel opened up to Carole Radziwill about a boyfriend she recently vacationed with. Let's just say the Skinnygirl founder sounded quite impressed with this new man.

"It's nice to date someone really smart and passionate, and who's busy," she shared during her confessional. "I don't want him living my life in my apartment with my money. I want a partner."

Even her co-star was super impressed after she enjoyed a vacation with the couple and her very own boyfriend Adam Kenworthy.

"Your guy is amazing," she shared during a scene. "I mean even Adam, who doesn't have, like, man-crushes was like f--k."

While no names are mentioned in the scene, E! News recently confirmed that Bethenny was in fact dating banker Dennis Shields. In fact, a source shared with us that they've been dating since at least the holidays and enjoyed a couple's vacation with Carole and Adam.

Although Dennis tries to stay behind the cameras and out of the public eye, Bethenny was able to give fans a glimpse into how much he admires her. "He's like, ‘I'm in love with you and I'd marry you tomorrow,'" Bethenny recalled. "That's too much."

Carole added, "I would panic. I would never get to the point where they were going to say that because I always keep a nice distance. I never have to run because I'm never in it enough to have to run. I easily could walk away. I glide out of relationships."

Ultimately, the businesswoman doesn't appear to be running away from this relationship. Just last week, Bethenny responded to the dating reports by tweeting, "I'm dating a legally married separated man—so perfect bc I'm legally married too!"

Perhaps this is another way of saying, "Get off my jock!" Real Housewives of New York City airs Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. only on Bravo.
