It seems that RHONY star Bethenny Frankel, 52, will be perfectly happy shacking up with her fiancé, Paul Bernon, 46, instead of getting hitched again. So, let’s get into the details. 

Bethenny and Paul, as fans already know, have been engaged for two years. The Real Housewives of New York City veteran recently revealed that the pair still have no plans of walking down the aisle. In fact, she explained, they may never take those vows.  

During an interview, Bethenny explained that she really just doesn’t want to build a wedding. Apparently, the reality TV star is perfectly happy and in love with her fiancé.

“I don’t want to sign a contract with someone I love, and I don’t want to plan a massive wedding for everybody else and not what we want,” the Bravo alum tells E! News in an exclusive, adding that she likes to do her thing and not what the society tells her to do. 

 Bethenny finalized her divorce from ex Jason Hoppy in 2021 after a messy court battle over finances and custody of their young child, Bryn, who is now 13. Shortly thereafter, she got engaged to Paul.  

The Skinny Girl mogul admitted to E! that her man puts up with a lot to be with her – namely, the media attention which can wreak havoc on his privacy. She said that when she asks Paul why he stays with her, he says it’s because he chooses to. Bethenny added, “He lives with a clown, and he loves comedy, so that’s the answer.”  

“I’m smart and funny, and he enjoys comedy, she said, calling it a “clown show.”  Bethenny is also popular with the  Real Housewives of New York City fans for her “clown show” life and tune in frequently to see what’s going to happen next.  

As fans are well aware, Bethenny is now waging a legal battle against Bravo, accusing the network of mistreating its reality stars. But in this interview with E! from July 2023, the RHONY veteran seemed open to showing up on Peacock’s potential new season of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip. According to her, she would. But it would take a lot of money! 

“Money—an astronomical amount of money to do that,” said Bethenny when asked what it would take to return to Bravo/Peacock. “Probably like a million dollars for Ultimate Girls Trip.”

Less than a month later, Bethenny began calling out Bravo and calling for the unionization of reality stars.

In other news, Bethenny reportedly leaked a DM From Eboni K. Williams After Telling Her to ‘F—k Off.’ Of course, there’s more to that story than that. Read about that here. Be sure to stay up to speed on all your favorite Real Housewives of New York City girls by returning to Reality Blurb daily!
