Bethenny Frankel loves to show off her bikini body.
But a new report alleges that Dennis Shields gets to see the reality star's bare body any time he desires.
That's right: Sheilds is dating The Real Housewives of New York City actress!
The relationship isn't especially new, according to E! News. The romance is just first making its way around the Internet now.
"They've been dating since at least the holidays," a source says, adding that the couple went on vacation with co-star Carole Radziwill and her boyfriend Adam Kenworthy.
Shields is a banker who resides in The Big Apple.
Another insider, meanwhile, also confirmed that he started banging Bethenny toward the end of last year, explaining that he showed up one day several months ago for a day of filming.
He had no interest in appearing on camera, however.
Frankel and Shields were spotted this week in New York, strolling the sidewalk while holding hands and chatting away.
Witnesses say they look very close and comfortable with one another.
Bethenny, of course, is coming off a very contentious divorce from Jason Hoppy.
Up until this past March, she had been paying Hoppy $12,000 per month in spousal support. But no longer!
She hasn't been seriously romantically linked to anyone since then, although she has had fun with all the rumors surrounding her personal life.
"FYI, I'm dating abt 65 guys," Frankel wrote on Twitter in February, adding:
"They're all married, rich, famous & I'm pregnant w multiple babies. Oh & Guess what? I'm married too."
That was just Frankel being silly. But we're being serious here in saying she is dating Dennis Shields.
