Um, excuse me?
Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel has a new dude… and it’s none other than Modern Family‘s Eric Stonestreet!
While this feels like it couldn’t be more rando, apparently the two have been enjoying each other’s company casually for a few months now: at the 2015 CAA Upfronts Celebration Party in May, dinner, etc. More recently, Stonestreet and Frankel attended a baseball game last Monday when the Dodgers played the Philadelphia Phillies. E! reports:
Frankel hasn’t dropped too many hints that she’s newly attached, but she did recently tweet, “I’m very happy right now. It took me a minute but I’m here. Xo,” and followed today with, “I’ve really changed my mind on something: i think if u have a great textual banter, compatibility is likely.”
We can only imagine the “textual banter” between these two funny stars. “He’s very different from his character on Modern Family. He’s sharp and funny, but his humor is darker,” a source tells us of Stonestreet, and adds that, “He has an incredible relationship with his parents, especially his mom,” and is “very proud of his mid-western roots.”
Uh, yeah. Eric is rad. Bethenny? Jury’s still out. Hopefully she makes him happy, because I am a MUCH bigger fan of Stonestreet than Frankel and think he deserves someone less, uh, obnoxious and whiny? Yeah, those are the words I’m thinking of.
What do you think of this new couple?
