Eric Stonestreet and Bethenny Frankel have had some fun keeping the rumor mill guessing about the status of their friendship/possible romance. Today during a segment on The View, Eric addressed Bethenny’s recent visit to the Modern Family set. After posting the photo above, Bethenny had fans wondering if they were a couple, if she was shooting a cameo on the show, or if they were just two friends hanging out for the day.
Joy Behar told Eric that the photo got fans stirred up again, wondering if they were an item. Eric explains his relationship with the Real Housewives of New York star, “Bethenny and I met at a party a couple years ago and you all know Bethenny – she is a force and she is amazing and she is exactly what you see on TV in addition to being really sweet and really kind and caring.”
He adds, “We hit it off at the party and we hung out and we’re friends. We’ve remained friends. We saw each other last weekend. She always wanted to come to the set and she is a great person. I admire what she’s done.”
Joy asks, “So there’s nothing romantic there?” Eric firmly denies it, “No, I’m sorry.” He then jokes, “So.. I’m avaaaaillable!”
I think these two would be a great match. They’re both sarcastic and funny, successful and in different areas of showbiz and business, so they wouldn’t be “too” intertwined but yet could understand a bit of what the other person’s career involved. Plus, they live on different coasts, so they wouldn’t be in each other’s faces all the time! And Bryn would probably be over the moon (and maybe a little freaked out) that mom was dating the voice of Duke from Secret Life of Pets and Minimus from Sofia the First…
TELL US – SHOULD BETHENNY AND ERIC GIVE IT A GO? ARE YOU SAD THAT SHE’S NOT DOING A CAMEO ON MODERN FAMILY?
