Bethenny Frankel must've been blindsided after she was ordered by the court to pay $100,000 to her estranged husband, Jason Hoppy — but at least she has a shoulder to cry on.
Or so we think.
It's been rumored the 44-year-old has a new boy toy in her life and he goes by the name of Michael Toppel. He's a single dad, so the pair definitely have the whole single parenting thing in common.

Sources tell Page Six the Real Housewives of New York star and her new arm candy have been spotted at multiple locations in NYC, including Bar Pitti in Greenwich Village and Zuma on Madison Avenue, but a friend of the reality star insists they're "just friends."
Friend or not, Michael, who hails from Boca Raton, Fla., might be just what Bethenny needs to get her mind off all of the drama with her ex!
