Bethenny Frankel gives update on Paul Bernon wedding planning


Bethenny Frankel and Paul Bernon are in no rush to swap vows.

The former “Real Housewives of New York City” star said she and her fiancé are just enjoying “being in the moment” instead of getting caught up in the whirlwind of wedding planning.

“We are happy with where we are. We’re honestly just so happy that we’re being in the moment,” Frankel told “Entertainment Tonight” Tuesday at the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards, which she attended with 11-year-old daughter Bryn.

“I mean, you know, I’m not a spring chicken, so it’s not like we’re rushing.”

Although Frankel, 51, and Bernon, 44, do not appear to have any concrete plans as of yet, she said she “definitely” prefers to have a smaller wedding this time.

Bernon proposed to the Skinnygirl mogul in March 2021 after she finalized her bitter divorce from ex-husband Jason Hoppy, who is Bryn’s father. The film producer popped the question with a massive emerald-cut diamond ring estimated to be have cost up to $1 million.

The pair began dating in 2018 after the death of Frankel’s on-again, off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields.

“He’s a good person who I love,” she told People about a year after they started dating. “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.”

The couple briefly split in the fall of 2020 but sparked reconciliation rumors when they were photographed holding hands in Boston. She confirmed on Valentine’s Day 2021 that they were an item again by going Instagram-official.

“Behind every woman… (you fill in the blanks here.) Happy Valentine’s Day xoxo #Loveyourself,” she captioned the photo at the time.
