Bethenny Frankel’s love life hit rock bottom when she split from estranged husband Jason Hoppy and entered a messy divorce battle with him. Although things seemed to be looking up for the Real Housewives of New York star when she began dating her now ex-boyfriend Michael Cerussi III, she was actually involved in another bad romance!
“She was vulnerable – and her friends think Michael took advantage,” a source told OK! Magazine. “She was so lonely, she put up with a lot of things she should never have allowed.”
One of those things included Michael’s bad temper. The financer reportedly threw a vase at a wall after Bethenny told him that she no longer wanted him around her 4-year-old daughter Bryn. “It was a very up-and-down relationship,” a source added.
Bethenny finally ended the romance when she realized “she couldn’t handle two ugly situations at the same time,” the insider dished.
Although the RHONY star denied the allegations by tweeting, “Michael Cerussi is an amazing, kind man, son & friend. Negativity written about him was intentionally placed to hurt him and me,” she told Andy Cohen a much different story about her ex!
