Bethenny Frankel and Boyfriend Paul Bernon Split After 2 Years: Reports
After Frankel and Bernon celebrated their one-year anniversary, the Skinnygirl mogul told PEOPLE she was in a great place, both personally and professionally. (She had announced earlier that year that she would not be returning to The Real Housewives of New York City.)
"Things are wonderful," she said at the time. "He's a good person who I love. I don't know if it's a yin to my yang, but he's really relaxed, he's mellow and he's very, very funny."
She has also opened up about Bernon's relationship with her 10-year-old daughter Bryn.
Frankel, who recently launched a podcast, is still married to Bryn's father Jason Hoppy. The two separated in December 2012, and Frankel filed for divorce a month later. Though they reached a financial settlement in their contentious divorce in July 2016, the exes remain at odds over custody of Bryn.
Frankel and Bernon were going strong as recently as this summer, with the former Bravo star marking his birthday with a sweet post in July.
"Happy Birthday Paul...have the most beautiful day ever. You are so loving and so loved," she wrote on Instagram at the time. "The rest of my sentiments, feelings, and wishes for you are deep & private, the way we like it...xoxo."
Speaking to PEOPLE last month, Frankel opened up about her summer of "surfing and nesting" with Bernon.
"He's very solid, very together, very caring. We're both sort of chill, believe it or not," she said. "People who know me say I've never seemed more clear, more calm or more settled."
