Bethenny Frankel has been rumoredÂ to be datingÂ 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.
â€œThey have been hooking up,â€ an insider confirmed. â€œBut itâ€™s not at the serious stage, and the major reason is because of Bethennyâ€™s divorce. Under the terms of Bethenny and Jasonâ€™s custody agreement, they are both required to live in the New York City area for their daughter, Bryn.â€
â€œEric lives in Los Angeles, so the distance is a problem,â€ the source told RadarOnline. â€œThere 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.â€
For now, â€œBethenny goes out to Los Angeles when Jason has custody of Bryn.â€
â€œBethenny is very careful not to introduce boyfriends to Bryn until she is sure that itâ€™s going to be a serious relationship. She never wants it to become a revolving door of men coming through Brynâ€™s life,â€ the insider added.
