EXCLUSIVE: 'RHONY' Bethenny Frankel Has A New Money Honey!

She’s not wasting time!

Even though it’s only been a few weeks since RHONY Bethenny Frankel announced she was splitting from her ex Michael Cerussi, she was already spotted with another man in New York City on May 18.

Of course, when the photograph of her holding hands with the super (rich!) hunk came out around that date, she cynically mocked the situation by tweeting “I can’t wait to find out who my new boyfriend is today. guesses? Yours is as good as mine.”

Well, we figured it out for her. Star exclusively learned that it is Peter Chalif and he’s definitely not a gold digger. Needless to say, the 41-year-old financial advisor at Citigroup Global Markets has a very healthy bank account ready for Bethenny. He even owns a historic New Jersey mansion, Landmore estate, which he bought for $3.7 million in 2007, also once owned by Thomas Edison’s son.

“On the surface, Peter seems to be the perfect guy Bethenny’s always wanted,” says a source close to the Real Housewife and Skinnygirl mogul. “He’s rich and good-looking and appears to have a good heart.”

And she may need the extra cash that her new money honey has. Bethenny’s court papers showed she owes a whopping $35,559 every month to her ex-husband Jason Hoppy, and from the sounds of it, that number could soon fluctuate based on Jason asking for even more!
