Bethenny Frankel may still be technically married, but according to reports, she may already be dating again. After moving out of the home she shared with husband Jason Hoppy, Bethenny and her daughter Bryn have reportedly moved in with her billionaire friend Warren Lichtenstein and the rumor mill is buzzing with allegations that the pair is more than just friends.
In addition to moving into Warren’s Upper East Side apartment, Bethenny had also been spending some serious time with him before her split from Jason. UPDATE: The Daily Mail spoke to one of Bethenny’s friends who claimed that Bethenny is NOT living with Lichtenstein, just relying on him for emotional support. They also stated that there is no romance between them. “Bethenny and Warren have been great friends for more than 20 years and he has really been a support system during this sad time.”

According to Perez Hilton, Bethenny and Warren had vacationed together overseas back in October without Jason (which he obviously wasn’t too happy about) and Warren even accompanied Bethenny and Bryn to Aspen for the holidays just a couple of days after she announced her separation.
So who is this guy, exactly? Here’s what Street Inside has to say about him:
Lichtenstein runs hedge fund Steel Partners and is the Chairman and CEO of Steel Partners Holdings L.P (NYSE: SPLP), a $400 million NYSE-traded diversified holding company that owns and operates business and has significant interests in leading companies in various industries, including diversified industrial products, energy, defense, banking, food products and services, oilfield services, sports, training, education, and the entertainment and lifestyle industries.
Despite what seems to be a “more than just friends” situation, a Bethenny pal insists their relationship is platonic. “They’ve been friends for 10 years,” the friend says. “He’s been a great support to her through all this.”
