This is the first time Frankel has posted her boyfriend on Instagram.

The trip comes after Frankel suffered a nearly-fatal allergic reaction to fish earlier this month.

"I have a rare fish allergy," she tweeted. "Sunday, I had soup, itched & was unconscious for 15 mins then to ER & ICU for 2 days w BP of 60/40. I couldn't talk, see, thought I had a stroke & dying & told if 5 mins later I'd be dead. 911 & EPI saved me. I'll never not carry an #epipen."


Frankel credited her boyfriend for saving her life.

The RHONY star and real estate executive were first spotted together in October. broke in November that Bernon was involved in a civil suit filed on June 9, 2015 after he allegedly slammed his car into a motorcyclist.

Massachusetts court records claimed Bernon "was operating his motor vehicle in a careless and negligent manner."

"Paul Bernon's negligence caused the motor vehicle he was operating to rear end the motorcycle driven by the Plaintiff, Scott Wimberly, thereby injuring the Plaintiff, Scott Wimberly," the lawsuit claimed. "Scott Wimberly "suffered serious personal injuries, incurred expenses for medical treatment, suffered great pain of body and mind."

Bernon denied he was to blame and the lawsuit was dismissed.

In August, Frankel's on-again, off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields, 51, who has appeared on the Bravo show, was found dead of an overdose in his apartment.
