Bethenny Frankel has reportedly become engaged.

Frankel’s spokesperson did not immediately return calls to DailyMail.com for comment.
The 50-year-old star has also recently finalized her divorce from Jason Hoppy after a long and contentious divorce process, according to PageSix.
They reached the financial agreement in 2016.
But then spent the next five years arguing over the custody of their only child, Bryn, who is now aged 10.

Bethenny and Paul had split in October last year.
But in January the two seemed to be back on as she sat on his lap while they paid a visit to Miami-based artist Romero Britto’s studio.
The couple looked very much together in the video from Britto, which showed the ever-elegant Bethenny donning a palm frond skirt, fringed jacket and pearls.
They proceeded to go Instagram official with their reunion in February 2021.
Frankel and Bernon began dating in 2018 after her boyfriend Dennis Shields passed away at the age of 51 at the Trump Tower in New York City.
His official cause of death was listed as ‘undetermined’ since no autopsy was performed; there were reports he had suffered an overdose.

Bethenny was often seen with Paul on vacation in Europe as well as on the red carpet.
But they went their separate ways in October 2018. The Bravo alum explained that there was nothing bitter between the two, but rather ‘some things just don’t continue’ while appearing on the Ellen show shortly after the split.
At the time, she said the single life was fine: ‘I’m good, I’m good. You know, not everything works out!

‘So many people have tried to define my life – our lives – with “When are you getting engaged? When are you having a baby? When are you getting married?”‘
‘And I’ve just realized more in life, with people being more open and honest about their lives and what they want, that everything doesn’t have to sort of end in a blue box and a bow.
‘We’ve had a great, great relationship and I’m really happy. Not everything has to end badly, some things just don’t continue and it’s not negative it’s just life.’
As far as finalizing her divorce from Hoppy, PageSix has claimed that a judge ‘signed off’ the papers on January 20.
They wed in 2010 and their nuptials became the subject of a reality TV spinoff, Bethenny Ever After

The two then had a rough patch then split in December 2012 as Bethenny filed for divorce one month later.
From December 2012 until January 2021, Bethenny and Jason had a bitter fight over money and their daughter Bryn.
In 2017 an order was placed against Hoppy as he was charged with ‘harassing and stalking’ the reality TV maven in New York City. Jason then had to stay away from his ex for six months.
In October 2020 Frankel shocked fans when she said on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live that she was still technically wed to Hoppy.
The actress was married to Peter Sussman for one year in 1996 before she tied the knot with Hoppy.
