While taping an episode of her talk show Bethenny set to air this Friday, Frankel reportedly slipped some information about her personal life when interviewing Shahs of Sunset star Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi.
"GG was talking about how close she was with an ex after breaking up because that person was such a big part of her life for so long. She went on to explain that she can't date someone who doesn't understand this mentality," an eyewitness toldLife & Style.
"Bethenny chimed in saying that the guy she's currently dating would not be okay with that! It was very organic the way she announced it, nobody even really realized she confirmed she had a man!"
This is apparently the first guy Frankel has dated since her failed relationship with estranged husband Jason Hoppy.
"It's very unfamiliar to me not to want to meet anybody, to not feel a need to fill that void. And I've accepted the fact that I might never find that great love and that authentic real relationship the way that it's supposed to feel," Frankel, who has a three-year-old daughter named Bryn with Hoppy, told People at the time.
"Men aren't a priority right now -- at all. It would take away from important things that I'm not willing to sacrifice. With my talk show and my daughter, there's little room for anything else."
Frankel, who also previously competed on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart and is managing her ever-growing Skinnygirl empire, had also told the magazine she's not rushing to get into another relationship because she's not ready to open up again.
"A lot of me is shut down right now. I'm a little fragile," she explained. "Intimacy wouldn't be so bad, but it's hard to bridge the gap. I'm a quality over quantity kind of person. And since I'm emotionally unavailable. It may be a chilly winter."
