Bethenny Frankel spilled when appearing on Andy Cohen’s talk show on Wednesday evening.
During a sit-down on Watch What Happens Live, the RHONY star revealed that she used to date Jennifer Lopez’s new beau Alex Rodriguez, but said they only went on two dates.
Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet was also on the show with the beauty. He admitted that he did indeed date the Skinnygirl founder, but decided they would be better as friends. He also said she was a ‘good kisser.’

Walk tall in platform pumps like Bethenny Frankel
Bethenny Franklin made an appearance on Extra in LA and she showed off her incredibly toned frame in a crop top and high-waisted pencil skirt with a thigh high slit.
She further elongated her legs in a pair of skyscraper heels. They’re by Saint Laurent and the ‘Janis’ pump is a brand signature that includes a platform silhouette, pointy toe and pin thin stiletto.
This style comes in a range of colors but we’re feeling this electric blue shade, especially when teamed with Bethenny’s neutral black and white ensemble.

Bethenny dated Rodriguez, 41, in 2009 after he left his wife Cynthia Scurtis. Together they had two daughters, Natasha, 12, and Ella, nine.
When Andy asked if she dated the former NY Yankees baseball player, Frankel snapped: ‘What is used to date mean? I went out with him on two dates.’
The star added she didn’t remember if they even kissed.
Soon after she met and married personal trainer Jason Hoppy with whom she had daughter Bryn. They have since divorced.

Last year Bethenny was seen many times with Stonestreet, but she always downplayed their union.
But the truth came out on Wednesday.
‘We met and decided we make much better friends,’ said Stonestreet. ‘But she’s a wonderful kisser,’ he added.
This appearance comes after Bethenny’s mother Bernadette Birk – who she has been fighting with on and off for 16 years – told Life & Style Weekly the her daughter is a ‘moron.’

And she thinks the raven-haired Bravo star is only ‘lucky’ to have landed a guest judge role on Season Nine of Shark Tank.
‘She is a moron,’ Bernadette said moments after the news broke that her daughter would be on the ABC show.
‘She got very lucky, and she just knows how to surround herself with people who are intelligent.’

And the woman did not stop there.
‘Bethenny is a liar and a shark. She ran through my guts. She will get along with the other sharks,’ said the mom.
The New York native launched her Skinny Girl empire while starring on the Bravo reality series and the company has made her a multimillionaire.
All business: The star texted away as she headed to TV show Extra for a taping
Frankel and her mother have not spoken in nearly a year. But the issues go back nearly two decades.
Their relationship became very nasty in 2011 when Bethenny complained about her childhood in the book A Place of Yes: 10 Rules For Getting Everything You Want Out Of Life. She relayed gritty details about how she never felt ‘safe’ and painted a picture of neglect as her mother drank excessively, she claimed.
A war in the media followed with bitter barbs traded on both sides.
But it seemed as if the Bravo star – who is divorced from Jason Hoppy – was getting along better with the woman in July 2016.
That is when she took to her Sirius XM radio show, B Real with Bethenny, to explain their truce.
‘My daughter said, “Mommy, are your parents alive?” I said, “My daddy’s not alive and my mommy is alive.” She said, “I want to meet your mommy.”‘
That made the TV star want to call her mother.

‘I thought, “Oh God, I’ve got to reach out to her,”‘ said the TV icon
When she did, she got a nice reception, which surprised her.
‘I think that she—and maybe my stepfather—have been hurt because some of the truths of my childhood have been in some of my books as it pertains to how I got here success-wise and how I got here sucking at relationships-wise,’ Frankel said.
‘So, I said to her, “This is my truth, and I’ve only told about 10 percent of my truth. And your life is your truth and what got you here.

‘And the mistakes that you made—you had me at 20—I’m not angry. I’m just telling you that my daughter has asked for you. She’s 6 years old.”‘
She added: ‘It was actually not an excruciating conversation.’
Frankel is the only child of Robert Frankel, who was a horse trainer, and Bernadette, who worked as an interior designer.
At age four, her father left her mother and a year later Bernadette wed John Parisella. The star has said that during this time her mother ‘was always drinking’ and argued ‘violently’ with her stepfather.
