Last year there were rumors circulating that Bethenny Frankel was dating Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet and today Frankel addressed those rumors on her new Sirius XM radio show.
Bethenny explained that she first met Eric at a “douchey, Hollywood industry party” and he added that Bethenny “had no idea” he was straight in real life, considering his Modern Family character Cam is gay.
And Eric had no idea who Bethenny was at the party! “I had no idea who you were,” he said. “Sorry!” From there, it does sound like there was some light flirting. “I came over to you and I tapped you and said, ‘Why are you talking to these guys? I’m the most interesting person here,'” Eric said of what he told Bethenny when he noticed she was leaving with another guy.
“I asked my assistants, ‘Is Eric Stonestreet â€” because I didn’t even know your name. I knew you were Cam [on Modern Family]. I said, ‘Is he gay?’ And they said, ‘F*** no! He’s from Kansas City. He’s such a guys’ guy. He’s into sports.’ I was like, ‘Oh!’ And then we had lunch the next day, and here we are getting engaged.”
Listen to their convo here.
Do you think Bethenny and Eric would have made a good couple?
