Bethenny Frankel and fiancé Paul Bernon are on solid ground — regardless of what you may have heard.
On Dec. 21, the former "The Real Housewives of New York City" star posted a photo to Instagram that raised some eyebrows in regard to her relationship status. In the snap, Bethenny wears a sweater that refers to "Jingle Ladies," a play on words from Beyonce's 2008 song "Single Ladies."
"Shoutout to all my #jingleladies who can put their own ring on it….," she captioned the snap.
The Skinnygirl founder was not wearing her engagement ring in the image.
"Wait is she single?!?" one fan wondered.
"Oh noooo! You broke up with Paul?" another asked.
A slew of people wondered where her ring was, and others, assuming she was newly single, applauded her independence.
As rumors started flying, Bethenny took to her Instagram Story to combat the speculation.
"I'm engaged to a wonderful man named Paul," she said. "I don't always wear my ring, I don't have to always wear my ring. Sometimes I don't feel that it's safe, sometimes my fingers swell or contract, but I'm doing me."
While condemning "irresponsible" media outlets for assuming she and Paul called things off, she held up her engagement ring, which is estimated to be worth $1 million. She also showed off another ring she and Paul bought together.
"It is my opinion that a relationship is about the two people in the relationship, the commitment and the feelings," she said. "It's not about announcements, not about pomp and circumstance, not about jewelry. It's symbolism and if I decide to wear an engagement toe ring, then so be it."
To be fair, not everyone thought the couple split, especially since she clearly donned her ring last week in a snap with her 11-year-old daughter, Bryn.
