Bethenny Frankel posted a loving message on Instagram to boyfriend Paul Bernon in honor of their anniversary on Thursday, September 12. The SkinnyGirl mogul shared a throwback picture of the couple from their recent trip to Italy and thanked her beau for all of his support this past year.
"Having such a supportive and loving partner makes me a better person & inspires me to achieve the impossible. Happy Anniversary! I love you and thank you for the most beautiful year!" Bethenny, 48, wrote. Her fans were quick to congratulate her on finding true happiness. "Bethenny it’s so good to see after all your heartache you have come out the other side," one of her followers wrote in the comments section. "Good things come to good people and you prove that over and over," another person added.
The B Strong founder recently traveled to the Bahamas to provide aid to the victims of Hurricane Dorian. She and her foundation previously provided relief in Texas after Hurricane Harvey and in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.
Bethenny has been focusing on her charity work and her business after making the decision to leave The Real Housewives of New York City ahead of season 12. After news of her exit from the Bravo show broke, she thanked her fans for their loyalty.
"I wanted to take a moment to write a personal note to you. I am so grateful to you for sticking with me through everything. You started this journey with me in my tiny apartment in my late 30s, wondering what would happen to me. I was broke, single, had no family and no idea what the future held. I had big dreams and I never stopped, but I honestly didn’t know if I would ever get here," she wrote on social media.
She continued, "You helped me to get here. I would read your letters and messages and grow from your struggles. You would give me your honest opinion about my products and projects and helpful advice about divorce, relationships, motherhood, miscarriages, health, and surviving the death of a loved one and almost my own. You have shared your ideas with me and I have been inspired by and learned from you."
Bethenny and Paul began seriously dating shortly after the death of her ex Dennis Shields in August 2018. He has publicly supported her during her nasty custody battle with estranged husband Jason Hoppy.
