Housewives’ Bethenny Frankel Is “In Love”


The Real Housewives of New York‘s Bethenny Frankel is always sparring with co-star Kelly Bensimon, but she has one relationship in her chaotic life that appears to be working just fine.

“I’m in love,” Bethenny recently said at an event in the Hamptons. “I’m pretty much certain I’m going to spend the rest of my life with him…I’m really happy.”

By “him” she means her beau of eight months, Jason Hoppy, who Bethenny and her Housewives pals apparently think is a real catch.

“He does pharmaceutical sales and real estate. He’s very, very athletic, all-American basketball, triathlons,” Bethenny said.

He also had quite a savvy pick up line when he first met Bethenny at New York City hotspot Tenjune: “Are you going to get that stick out of your ass?”

The Real Housewives Just Got Richer


Good news for all you Jill Zarin fans out there! The botoxed beauty and her sisterhood of rich sidekicks have signed on to do another season of The Real Housewives of New York, and the ladies are getting a raise. The gauche gals will get “upwards of $30,000 per episode” for their third season, which may include a dance-off between Bethenny Frankel and Kelly Bensimon, who apparently want to end their feud with duel of fancy footwork.

But while the deal sure is sweet for the crew of Upper East Side¬† sirens (er, and one Brooklynlite), their hubbys are coming up empty. According to a source, they “get nothing,” for their work on the show. Sorry Simon!¬† [Photo: GettyImages]
