Bethenny Frankel may be making big bucks to return to Real Housewives of New York— but the plum gig reportedly cost her a relationship.
According to Life & Style, the 44-year-old mogul's much younger boyfriend of more than a year, Michael "Mac" Cerussi, 35, kicked her to the curb last month because he didn't want to become a reality star.
"Mac knew they'd want him on the show, and he wasn't about to put his life out there," a source told the magazine of the private finance exec.
And it seems he may have a few skeletons to keep hidden.
"He's a party boy and doesn't want everyone in America knowing who he is and what he does," the source explained.
The star will still have plenty of other drama for the hit Bravo show. As Radar previously reported, Frankel and costar Heather Thompson are butting heads on camera.
