Just a couple of months after Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel lost her on again, off again boyfriend Dennis Shields to an unexpected drug overdose, cameras have spotted her out with a new man. Over the weekend, Frankel and the mystery man were holding hands and enjoying a full make-out session near Boston College.
According to the Daily Mail, the mystery man is 29-year-old model and tech startup investor Ben Kosinski. Frankel was spotted kissing Kosinski, and the couple stopped and stared at each other before they crossed the street during an outing in the Massachusetts city.

Frankel was wearing jeans and a loose neutral top, and she accessorized with sunglasses and a large handbag.
But, Boston isn’t the only city the couple has visited recently. Both Frankel and Kosinski were in Miami at the same time in late September. He posted a pic of himself shirtless while lounging on the top floor of a hotel. And, in another Instagram picture, Kosinski was wearing the same sunglasses as Frankel.
The 47-year-old Skinnygirl Mogul recently started following the handsome businessman on social media.
Kosinski attended the University of Miami from 2009 to 2011, and he majored in Economics. But, in addition to being a business investor, he is also a model who is represented by powerhouse modeling agency Wilhelmina.
This is a big change for Frankel, who over the past few weeks has been on a “grief diet” after losing her longtime friend and sometimes boyfriend. There were also reports that Shields had proposed to Frankel just a few months before he died.
Fans noticed Frankel’s recent weight loss, and she explained that she looked thinner because death does that to a person, and she doesn’t recommend the grief diet.

While she is going through some major changes in her personal life, Frankel is also doing some big things professionally. The entrepreneur just launched her line of Skinnygirl Jeans on the Home Shopping Network last week, and she told People Magazine that if Shields were still here, he would have been sitting behind the scenes and watching the computer to see how much they were selling and cheering her on.
After Shields passed away, Bethenny Frankel immersed herself in her work. She says there are good days and bad days, but she has gone from overwhelmed to grieving to healing. Now, she is the busiest she has ever been, and even though she gets tired, she is doing the best that she can.
New episodes of Real Housewives of New York City will return to Bravo next spring.
