Curiouser and curiouser!
As we previously reported, Bethenny Frankel and Eric Stonestreet were recently linked as a couple — despite the duo joking off the rumors.
However, the two haven't actually denied the affair — just kind of danced around the issue.
RadarOnline reports that the new couple are keeping their relationship quiet as the Real Housewives of New York star's divorce to Jason Hoppy is getting in the way.

As insider shared:
"They have been hooking up. But it's not at the serious stage, and the major reason is because of Bethenny's divorce. Under the terms of Bethenny and Jason's custody agreement, they are both required to live in the New York City area for their daughter, Bryn."
Well that makes sense. Maybe they aren't confirming the rumors because they haven't talked about their #RelationshipStatus. LOLz!
The insider continued:
"Eric lives in Los Angeles, so the distance is a problem. There is a ton of chemistry between them, and they have a lot of fun together. Bethenny wants to take it to the next level but neither one wants to have a bi-coastal relationship."
Hmm, very inneresting. It's reported the Miz Frankel makes her way out to El Lay when her estranged husband has custody of their daughter.
But what would a Hollywood romance do to her on-air time on RHONY?!
The source added:
"She is really loving the current cast of ladies, and had a blast doing housewives again. Next season, producers want to explore Bethenny's love life, and while she had been opposed to it before, she could be open to it now."
Well that's convenient!
Reportedly, the rumored couple has been spotted at the brunette beauty's Bridgehampton farmhouse– despite the fact the Modern Family actor has yet to meet her daughter.
The source explained:
"Bethenny is very careful not to introduce boyfriends to Bryn until she is sure that it's going to be a serious relationship. She never wants it to become a revolving door of men coming through Bryn's life."
We can respect that. We guess we will have to wait and see if anything more blossoms between these TV personalities.
What do U think?!
