'Real Housewives' Bethenny Frankel engaged

bethennyfrankel_realhousewivesofnewyorkcity_290.jpgBethenny Frankel of "The Real Housewives of New York City" is on her way to actually becoming one of the "wives" in that title.

The entrepreneur/natural foods chef and her boyfriend Jason Hoppy got engaged on Oct. 8, reports People.

"It feels great, because I'm with the right person," says Frankel, 38. "He may be regretting it because it's been beyond a week and he's in panic mode - [but] no, we're enjoying it."

Hoppy's private proposal included hundreds of votive candles lit in her rose-petal strewn apartment. He even adorned her dog Cookie with a pink bow for the occasion, before dropping to one knee and presenting her with a 8-carat ring.

We bet there were squeals-aplenty on the "Real Housewives" set the next day.

The couple first met in December 2008 at Tenjune nightclub.
