Frank doesn’t like to talk about his personal life. He tries to keep his personal and professional lives separate. In fact, he’s so secretive about his romantic partners that he doesn’t even tell his family he’s dating someone.

There’s one scene where Jamie catches Frank kissing a mystery woman goodbye and sending her home in a taxi. Jamie seems surprised and later questions Frank about his love life. Even then, Frank doesn’t say anything and tries to veer the topic away from his romance. Viewers learn Frank’s girlfriend is news reporter Kelly Davidson.

Unfortunately, it just wasn’t meant to be for Frank and Kelly. It soon came to light that Kelly was just using Frank for news story leads. One night, when they were on a date, Frank had to leave early because of a crime that took place. Kelly then went behind Frank’s back and told someone at the news station about it. She and her team were at the scene of the crime before the police could even get there.

It wasn’t long before Frank decided to end things. He spoke to her over the phone and said they shouldn’t see each other anymore. Kelly should have seen that one coming a mile away.
