Bethenny Frankel has been rumored to be dating Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet, but the Bravo star has denied that the two were a couple. Now, a new report reveals that there is a reason Frankel has been denying her new relationship and an insider confirms that they are in fact a real couple.
“They have been hooking up,” an insider confirmed. “But it’s not at the serious stage, and the major reason is because of Bethenny’s divorce. Under the terms of Bethenny and Jason’s custody agreement, they are both required to live in the New York City area for their daughter, Bryn.”
“Eric lives in Los Angeles, so the distance is a problem,” the source told RadarOnline. “There is a ton of chemistry between them, and they have a lot of fun together. Bethenny wants to take it to the next level but neither one wants to have a bi-coastal relationship.”
For now, “Bethenny goes out to Los Angeles when Jason has custody of Bryn.”
“Bethenny is very careful not to introduce boyfriends to Bryn until she is sure that it’s going to be a serious relationship. She never wants it to become a revolving door of men coming through Bryn’s life,” the insider added.
