Did Bethenny Frankel from ‘RHONY’ Get Married?

One surprise followed another as Bethenny Frankel from The Real Housewives of New York City tweeted she as married.

Frankel exited the series only days ago but launched a tweet that had fans sending her congratulations. “To my NY hwives: GO GET EM! I had to go since I’m the only one that is actually married…that’s how crazy this ride is,” she wrote. “You are all amazing, beautiful and strong. Spread your wings and fly! Xoxo “

Fans thought Frankel was married likely to boyfriend Paul Bernon. Frankel has shared a number of Instagram posts and videos with Bernon this summer. The couple looked cozy as they vacationed in both the Hamptons and Nantucket.


The minute Frankel launched her 4 am tweet congratulations poured in. “All the best always Bethenny newly married or else way. You deserve some room to smell the roses in life that you so diligently grew! You will be greatly missed,” one fan wrote.

Another fan though thought Frankel was probably joking. “Congratulations! In palm beach? On a yacht? Was Missy invited? Did Ramona sit at Dorindas table? Did you have a Caberet singer? We’re there fish on the wall? Was Tinsleys frozen dog invited? Do tell!”

Meanwhile, other fans were downright confused and suspicious. “Did you marry the guy you were dating? what do you mean ‘I had to go’ Were you forced out? that makes no sense! You’re the best part of the show.”

On Reddit, fans thought she possibly had a very quiet wedding.
“I am kinda glad she did it so privately and that she’s taking her relationship seriously enough to not involve a reality show. Good luck to her and I hope Bryn finally has a good male role model.”

She purchased a home in Boston

Bernon lives in Boston and Frankel recently purchased a home in the historic city. “Yay!!! Photos and video coming soon of my new Boston townhouse. Different city. Different style!” she tweeted in March. She shared photos of the townhouse to her Instagram story. Bravo’s Home & Design featured some of the images.

She also relisted her NYC Soho apartment in April. She actually listed the apartment in 2017 for $5,250,000 but reduced the price by $1 million. The home was listed at $4,375,000 or $13,000 a month to rent.

If she married, it will be her third

If her tweet is true, this will be the third marriage for Frankel. She was married to actor and producer Peter Sussman for one year from 1996 to 1997.

She married Jason Hoppy after a whirlwind romance in 2010. While she was still dating Hoppy she discovered she was pregnant. The relationship unfolded while she was still filming RHONY, along with the early months of her pregnancy.

Cameras followed the couple in her spin-off show, Bethenny Getting Married, which aired on Bravo in 2010. The show documented the birth of their daughter Bryn and wedding. The show morphed into the series Bethenny Ever After which followed the couple’s marriage and early days as parents. Frankel’s businesses were also featured.

Frankel and Hoppy divorced and endured a bitter custody battle. The couple ended their marriage in 2016.
