Internationally renowned aid worker Bethenny Frankel* announced this week that she “kind of” went on a date with Meghan Markle’s ex-husband Trevor Engelson. Should your memory need refreshing: Markle, who is set to marry heir-to-the-British-throne Prince Harry on May 19, is divorced from American Trevor Engelson, a greasy-yet-affable movie producer who just happens to be Jewish (though Markle isn’t.) Frankel, once again, is a noted philanthropist and disaster worker.**
Bethenny Frankel’s History With Meghan Markle’s Jewish Ex
In an interview for Australian radio on Monday, Frankel said she and Engelson went out “as a romantic interest” just one time, but “haven’t hooked up.” Their relationship, she says, has continued, but it “bypassed the romantics and went into the business.”
Here’s hoping that Frankel is the first of many Jewish and semi-Jewish women starting rumors connecting her to Meghan Markle’s ex-husband. I’ll go first: Meghan Markle’s ex-husband Trevor Engelson was my first kiss. It was nice, but a little tooth-y. Since then our relationship has mostly been business.
*Okay, she is most famous for being a Real Housewife, but she has also done great aid work!
