Bethenny Frankel and Eric Stonestreet set the record straight on those dating rumors
Yes, a 'Watch What Happens Live' audience member went there
Appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen usually means answering a few unexpected questions, and Bethenny Frankel and Eric Stonestreet handled it like pros on Wednesday’s episode — especially when discussing their rumored romance.
The Real Housewives of New York City star and Modern Family actor were asked by an audience member if they’d ever dated, a rumor that emerged in the press in July 2015. The duo didn’t rush to answer, taking telltale sips of their drinks instead, but Frankel soon decided it was a question Stonestreet should field.
“We met and I think we both decided that we make much better friends,” the actor shared before clinking glasses with Frankel. “But she’s a wonderful kisser!”

The founder of Skinnygirl cocktails was also romantically linked with retired baseball player Alex Rodriguez, whom she addressed in the same episode. “What is used to date mean? I went out with him on two dates,” she explained.
As for Rodriguez’s kissing skills, Frankel said, “I honestly don’t remember.”
Tough questions aside, the episode also featured a big surprise for Housewives fans, which you can see in the clip above.
