Heather, a current castmate on Real Housewives of Orange County, has four children. Last year, her daughter Kat came out as gay, which was around two years after the oldest daughter Max came out as bi.
In the caption of the post, Bethenny wrote a message of support.
“This is my daughter Bryn & her friend Ace, the son of @heatherdubrow & @drdubrow,” wrote the alum. “I’ve known Heather for decades. Heather was a young actress and friends with my ex-husband Peter’s brother, Danny.”
She went on to say, “Recent life events have made me very nostalgic and want to make the effort to connect to people from my past, so when I ran into Heather and her husband Terry in Aspen on the street, I was open. My usual state is closed.”
“We saw each other again at dinner and I met her beautiful sweet son Ace, around Bryn’s age,” Bethenny continued. “Bryn & Ace made plans to hit the slopes. I soon received a text from Heather saying that Ace had recently transitioned. She felt she needed to make some clarification. It’s a new world now, thankfully, and every moment is a learning experience.”
Bethenny added, “When I first met Ace at the table, there was a noticeable joy & happiness in his essence-an extra dose of sweetness, which I communicated to Heather after the dinner. There was something extra happy about him. Upon reflection, I was sure it was that he is allowed to be who he actually is.”
The star expressed, “Bryn and Ace quickly became friends — texting, skiing and snowboarding; posting TikToks … I’ve always said & believed: You can’t be who you’re not. You have to allow yourself to be free in being who you are. Life is so short and precious. Be who you want to be and be a good person in the process.”
After the post, Heather responded in the comments: “Thank you @bethennyfrankel for your love and support . Bryn is incredible- you’ve raised a good one.”
