Summer loving is having them a blast! There seems to be a new celebrity couple on the New York scene. Original Skinnygirl and Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel is dating Marcus Lemonis. According to, Frankel filed for her celebrity divorce from her estranged husband, Jason Hoppy, in January 2013. Unfortunately, they’ve been battling over their assets since then. On June 25, the celebrity exes met in court to continue fighting over their $5 million Tribeca loft and Frankel’s multi-million dollar Skinnygirl empire. On a March episode of Watch What Happens Live, Frankel told host, Andy Cohen, “I think the kind of guy that I would need to be with has to be able to handle me, which is a tall order.” It looks like she has found what she was looking for!

Cupid’s Advice:

Choosing to get involved with someone requires a lot of thought and dedication. Being single allows for a lot of freedom, so when you get involved with a partner you need to make some adjustments in your life and schedule. Cupid has some relationship advice:

1. Scheduling: Living in this twenty first century, we have busy schedules. When you become involved with someone in an intimate relationship that requires a certain flexibility to your schedule. Make sure that you each have time to devote to one another. Even if that means setting up a ritual date night!
