Just last week, the world was introduced to Bethenny Frankel's new boy toy Michael A. Cerussi III! However, there's one person who wont be meeting the muscle man anytime soon.
Her 3-year-old daughter Bryn!
Bethenny is still in the middle of a nasty custody war with Jason Hoppy, and sources say she hopes to keep her little princess out of the loop to avoid any confusion:
"There is no way Bethenny would even think about introducing Bryn to Michael. It would just be too confusing for such a young child."
Jason has previously asked a judge to prohibit Bethenny from bringing any of her guy pals around Bryn, but his request was shot down!
However, it looks like she's taken it upon herself to keep her dating life separate from their daughter! The source goes on to say:
"Give Bethenny some credit. She has no restrictions on who she brings around Bryn. Jason tried to play that card in court and lost! If Bethenny was really spiteful, she could have [introduced Bryn to her new man], but she didn’t. More than anything, Bryn is being shielded as much as possible by Bethenny from all of this divorce drama."
A divorce can be very difficult to handle, especially for a 3-year-old. So it's probably a good thing that Bethenny is doing everything to protect Bryn from all of the extra drama!
However, if Michael DOES eventually become a part of her life, she going to have to introduce the two at some point, right?
