It’s a reality romance! The Real Housewives of New York City star and celeb chef Bethenny Frankel is engaged to boyfriend Jason Hoppy after 11 months of dating.
Frankel, 38, tells PEOPLE.com that she said yes to her boyfriend Jason Hoppy’s proposal on Oct. 8.
“It feels great, because I’m with the right person,” Frankel says. “He’s may be regretting it because it’s been beyond a week and he’s in panic mode – [but] no, we’re enjoying it.”
Hoppy proposed to Frankel by bathing a hallway in her apartment with candle light and rose petals. He then gave her an eight-carat diamond ring with a six-and-a-half-carat pear-shaped center stone and got down on one knee to pop the big question to her.
“She is very much a handful but one thing she did say to me is she needs a man that can handle her and that I can,” says Hoppy.
