These two might just be our ultimate one true pairing!
Thankfully, the Emmy-winner stopped by Frankel’s SiriusXM show B Real with Bethenny on Wednesday morning to “clear up” their dating rumors!
After joking about getting engaged on the air, the SkinnyGirl creator told listeners she met Stonestreet through a friend at a “douchey Hollywood industry party” last spring.
The two didn’t hit it off right away, as Bethenny didn’t know Eric was straight IRL, and Eric thought the reality star was a “reality agent”! He explained:
“As you had no idea I was straight in real life, I had no idea who you were. Sorry! When [our mutual friend] said, ‘This is the queen of reality,’ I thought…she meant you were like the queen bee reality agent. You were like a CAA agent that would put me on a show. I’m like, ‘OK, yeah. Thank you. Nice to meet you. So good.’ As I started talking to you, she said something about Skinnygirl, and I said to you, ‘Oh my God! You created Skinnygirl?'”
And after discovering he was speaking to none other than the creator of the low-cal Vodka, the actor admitted:
“You’ve gotten me laid.”
But even after Stonestreet got more drunk and started getting touchy feeling with Frankel’s skirt, the RHONY alum still thought he was gay — until her assistant told her otherwise!
“When I looked over at you and you weren’t interested in the guy I brought home for you, I thought, ‘Oh, I’ll have him for myself.’ So, I texted you and said, ‘Holy sh*t! You’re an amazing actor. No! I asked my assistants…I knew you were Cam [on Modern Family]. I said, ‘Is he gay?’ And they said, ‘F*ck no! He’s from Kansas City. He’s such a guys’ guy. He’s into sports.’ I was like, ‘Oh!’ And then we had lunch the next day, and here we are getting engaged.”
Now, that’s quite the meet-cute if you ask us!
Even if they aren’t dating, we could just listen to these two banter all day long!
