Bravo to Bethenny Frankel of The Real Housewives of New York City, who has announced that she is a bride-to-be. People magazine reports that on October 8, 2009 the reality personality accepted a proposal from Jason Hoppy, her love of the past 11 months.
Although the author of The Skinnygirl Rules and The Skinnygirl Dish has lived out her life in the public eye for the past two seasons of the Bravo series, only her canine companion Cookie was privy to the proposal in her Big Apple apartment as the prospective groom knelt and presented her with an engagement ring from jewelry designer Kristin Farrell. The warm glow of over 100 candles illuminating a room perfumed with scattered rose petals danced on the facets of the ring’s crowning glory– a 6 1/2-carat, pear-shaped diamond embraced by two smaller diamonds, for a total of eight carats.
Still enjoying the first days of betrothed bliss, the happy couple have yet to decide on a date for their I do’s.
