Fans of the television show Modern Family might be surprised to hear that Cameron Tucker (played by Eric Stonestreet) isn’t gay in real life. In fact, it seems that the hit TV series actor may have found a real-life partner in Bethenny Frankel of Real Housewives of New York fame.
Frankel, 44, is also the inventor of Skinnygirl cocktails and the author of I Suck at Relationships So You Don’t Have To: 10 Rules for Not Screwing Up Your Happily Ever After. She may have taken her own advice, because after two unsuccessful marriages, Frankel is now rumored to be dating 43-year-old Stonestreet.
The two haven’t made anything official as yet but they’ve reportedly been “enjoying each other’s company” for the past few months. Frankel’s recent tweets certainly indicate something’s going on, although they don’t say with whom. Some of her posts include, “I’m very happy right now. It took me a minute but I’m here. Xo [sic],” and, “I’ve really changed my mind on something: I think if u have a great textual banter, compatibility is likely [Sic].”
The rumored celebrity couple has been spotted together since May, when they attended the 2015 CAA Upfronts Celebration Party in New York. They also recently went to watch a baseball game together.
Although Frankel has laughed off the new dating rumors, she says she still believes in love. In a recent interview with E! News, the reality star said that she’s “totally keeping her options open.” She even added that she’s been meeting “incredible men,” adding, “Bad apples don’t have to spoil the whole bunch. I’m not bitter, I love meeting new people.”
