A new year meant a new man for Real Housewives of New York alum and talk show host Bethenny Frankel!
Just days after the new couple were spotted in Miami, In Touch Weekly can exclusively reveal that Michael “Mac” Cerussi is the Skinnygirl’s new mystery man!
According to one onlooker, Bethenny, 43, and Mac exchanged New Years kisses at the Mondrian South Beach hotel—and were heavy on the PDA!
“Bethenny looked very happy to be kissing Mac in public—it’s like the knew she was ready to go public with him,” the source tells In Touch. “When I saw them at the Mondrian, she was kissing him in front of her friends and posing for photos together.”
On New Years Day, the new couple were spotted hitting the beach in Miami; while the reality star has yet to speak out about her new relationship, she offered her friends a cryptic message about her romance via Twitter: “Finally a nice beach day in Miami. Jumping into the ocean to plunge into the new year.”

This is the 43-year-old’s first serious relationship splitting from her ex-husband, Jason Hoppy. In December 2012, the pair called it quits after three years of marriage due to “fundamental differences”; they filed for divorce last January, and have been entrenched in a bitter custody battle ever since.
Despite last year’s difficulties, it appears this new relationship already has Bethenny optimistic about the upcoming year.
“Happy new year! I am so grateful for you and love you so much,” she tweeted just before the ball dropped on New Years Eve. “2013 was a mixed bag. I can feel the energy and 2014 is going to be great!”
