There is a new couple in Hollywood. “Real Housewives of New York” star, Bethenny Frankel, is rumored to be dating “Modern Family” star Eric Stonestreet.
News of an Eric Stonestreet and Bethenny Frankel romance may be new to the media, but these two are hanging out with each other for months. In the month of May, the pair was spotted in 2015 CAA Upfronts Celebration Party in New York. Later in the same month, they were again spotted together.
According to E! News, a source told, “He’s very different from his character on Modern Family. He’s sharp and funny, but his humor is darker.” The source added, “He has an incredible relationship with his parents, especially his mom,” and is “very proud of his mid-western roots.”
Frankel has already been subjected to a lot of dating rumors. She had tweeted:

Frankel had a public divorce with Jason Hoppy some time ago. Even then she said, “I do believe in love and I’m totally keeping my options open and I’ve met incredible men,” adding, “Bad apples don’t have to spoil the whole bunch. I’m not bitter, I love meeting new people.”
She also told E! News, “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. 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.”
So we can guess that she has found her man, though the news is not confirmed by Eric Stonestreet or her.
