Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel, who seemed resigned to perpetual dating last season, now says she has found love and happiness.

The lucky man? Jason Hoppy.

“I’m in love,” Frankel told People at an event in East Hampton Saturday. “I’m pretty certain I’m going to spend the rest of my life with him. I’m really happy.”

Frankel’s friends support the hot new match.

“He’s extremely handsome,” one of her pals said. “He’s supportive, funny, thoughtful, kind. He wants kids. They’re both the same age. This could be it.”

While Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy have been dating for eight months, she uncharacteristically kept their relationship under the radar for a while.

“I didn’t want to bring anyone into the fray unless I knew it was the real deal,” said Frankel, who met Hoppy at New York City’s hot spot Tenjune.

“I was getting my picture taken and I had a scowl on my face. He came up and said, ‘Are you going to get that stick out of your a$$?’” Frankel recalls.

Sparks flew right away, according to Frankel, and viewers will likely get to see the couple on future episodes of The Real Housewives of New York City.

“He’ll be on the show. He’s totally cool about it, but not gung ho. He’s not Speidi,” Frankel said. “He’s excited for me and everything happening for me.”

If she models outfits like this for him, we can see why.
