Bethenny Frankel Is Reportedly Dating 'Modern Family' Star Eric Stonestreet (UPDATE)

It's the TV crossover nobody saw coming: "Real Housewives of New York City" star Bethenny Frankel and "Modern Family" actor Eric Stonestreet are reportedly dating!

According to E! News, Frankel and Stonestreet are an item-- and have been for several months. The pair got cozy at the 2015 CAA Upfronts Celebration Party in May, and were even photographed together at the event.

Stonestreet shared a photo of Frankel and "RHONYC" co-star Carole Radziwill around the same time, though he took care to refer to them as "2 randos."

Frankel has been dropping hints about a potential romance as of late. She just tweeted on Monday about one of the keys to compatibility: "textual banter."

Frankel, 44, split from ex Jason Hoppy in late 2012. They settled a custody dispute over daughter Bryn, 5, last summer.

Stonestreet, 43, and actress Katherine Tokarz also called it quits in 2012.

A rep for Stonestreet declined to comment. The Huffington Post has also reached out to a rep for Frankel.

UPDATE: Frankel appeared to downplay the rumors with a Tuesday morning tweet. "Wow #somanyboyfriendssolittletime," she wrote, tagging Stonestreet in the post. "How did I manage to be at a Dodgers' game & be in the Hamptons at the same time?!!!" According to People, the unlikely pair are friends who met a few months ago and enjoy each other's company.
