Personal life and relationship with Bethenny

Even though Bethenny is around eight years older than Russ, that didn’t present a problem for the two – in an interview at the beginning of 2017 after she divorced her ex-husband Jason Hoppy, Bethenny stated how she was not ready to commit to anyone. She soon began dating Dennis Shields who is a successful business but their relationship didn’t last for more than a couple of months – then she met Russ and they immediately fell for each other. Bethenny has a daughter from her marriage with Jason, and has divorced twice, as she married Peter Sussman in 1996 but the two divorced after a year together. Russ has never married and doesn’t have kids

Although nobody knows for sure, Russ and Bethenny’s relationship is said to have lasted only for a couple of weeks before they separated due to unknown reasons – there are rumors that Bethenny only wanted to have fun while Russ wanted something a bit more serious. She went back to dating Dennis, as they accidentally met again and have been seeing each other ever since.

Who is Bethenny Frankel?

Bethenny was born in New York City, USA on 4 November 1970, so under the zodiac sign of Scorpio and she holds American nationality – she is most popular for her appearances in TV shows, while she is also an entrepreneur and author.

Bethenny was born to Robert J. Frankel and Bernadette Birk, and doesn’t have any siblings – her father is a famous horse trainer while her mother works as an interior designer. Her mother Bernadette is said to have converted from a Roman Catholic to Jewish after marrying Robert, and even though she is said to have tried to please her husband however she could, he left her when Bethenny was only four years old. It seems as her mother had a thing for horse trainers, as she married another named John Parisella – it was not easy for Bethenny as her father did not financially support her, while her mother was a heavy drinker and was always arguing with her new husband John. They moved numerous times, and Bethenny eventually matriculated from Pine Crest School, and then graduated from Boston University.

Luckily for her, she managed to leave home and start living on her own – her first job in the film industry was as a production assistant during the shooting of the “Saved by the Bell” TV sitcom. She went on to compete in “The Apprentice: Martha Stewart” reality TV show for which you have to possess skills in the fields of media, cooking, entertaining, decorating, designing, and style – Bethenny reached the finals but then lost.

She is mostly known for her role in “The Real Housewives of New York City” reality TV series which she got in 2008 – she went on to appear in “Bethenny Getting Married?” reality TV show in 2010, which was made for her and followed her engagement and marriage to Jason Hoppy. The series was a major hit, and contributed to the fame of Bethenny – but she took a break after the show was completed, and only appeared in 2014 in the seventh season of “The Real Housewives of New York City” after skipping three seasons.

Bethenny is a published writer as well – she finished her “Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting” book and published it at the beginning of 2009, then published her second book “The SkinnyGirl Dish: Easy Recipes for Your Naturally Thin Life” at the end of the year. She has also created DVDs and audio books focused on explaining to women how to exercise and what to eat – she also published a novel in 2011 entitled “A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Life” and another one at the end of 2012 entitled “Skinnydipping”.

She became an entrepreneur in 2011 when she launched her own company, and later sold it for around $100 million which makes her net worth quite large. Bethenny is very popular on two of her main social media accounts – she launched her Twitter account in January 2008 and is currently followed by over 1.6 million people while her Instagram account is followed by over 2 million people.

Russ’s other interests

He is a huge fan of jazz music – he attended the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival with a few of his friends, he also plays the drums and once considered becoming part of a band. He loves spending time outdoors in nature, and after taking a look at his Instagram account, one can conclude that he is very fond of paddle boarding, fishing, and chopping wood.

Appearance and net worth

Russ is currently around 39 years old. He has short brown hair and brown eyes but his height and weight are unknown – he has a very muscular figure and other than playing several sports, Russ visits the gym on a daily basis.

According to authoritative sources, Russ’s current net worth is estimated to be over $2 million thanks to his event planning company, and it will surely rise as the company is said to be working well.

Social media presence

Russ seems to be more or less active on several social media platforms – he launched his Twitter account in June 2009 but doesn’t seem to be active on it. He has an Instagram account which is followed by nearly 7,000 people while he’s posted over 250 pictures – he has a Facebook account as well, although he seems to be using it just to stay in touch with his friends and family.

1I don't like going to dinner by myself, I'll call for delivery before I do that. It's awkward if you're at a table all alone. I'm sure nobody even notices, but there's something about it.
2[about seeing himself in the movies] It almost seems like it's not really me. If you screw up, you see the tiniest little mistake that no one else will see. You'll totally be like, 'Wow, that sucks, I hope nobody else notices!'
3[his hair for the movie The Pacifier (2005)] "They bleached it a ton of times for the movie, I'm surprised I still have hair left!"
4At first, I didn't like coming down to Los Angeles at all. It's like everything's black and white compared to where I live out in the middle of nowhere. There's like 400 people in my town!
