Bethenny Frankel had an intriguing chat with Andy Cohen during a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, that turned to Jason Hoppy and marriage. The Real Housewives of New York star isn't yet officially divorced from Hoppy, and she has an interesting perspective on relationships looking forward.

"I will never get legally married again," Bethenny Frankel told Cohen. "It doesn't mean that I would not commit to someone, and I'm not jaded or bitter about love. I think there are amazing guys out there, but I will never, ever be legally married again."

Jason Hoppy and Bethenny Frankel endured a bitter separation and have been battling things out in divorce court since 2012. They were married for three years prior to separating. Even though she never divulged the catalyst of their split, most people assume it has to to with money.

Bethenny Frankel indicated as much during her conversation with Andy Cohen.

"I think that fame and attention and money does not bring out the best in everybody," she told him. "Money in many ways is the root of all evil."

She even went so far as to compare marriage to an old Eagles' song.

"Marriage is the 'Hotel California,'" she said. "You can check out but you can never leave."

Bethenny Frankel is currently dating, despite the fact that she's not yet legally divorced. Hopefully the man in question isn't interested in settling down--legally, anyway.

E! News disputes the dating scenario, however, reporting instead that Frankel is single. Who knows?

Whether she is or isn't dating, fans can check up on Bethenny Frankel on Bravo soon when she officially returns to The Real Housewives of New York. The new season premieres on April 7th.

Do you suppose her dating status will be revealed on the show?
