Bethenny Frankel and Meghan Markle have more in common than we thought.
The “Real Housewives of New York” star, 47, once dated 36-year-old Markle’s ex-husband, producer Trevor Engelson, Frankel revealed in a new interview.
“I met him in Chicago and we were supposed to go out, and I ended up seeing him one time and he’d been texting me. He’s a producer in LA He told me that he was married before. He’s divorced [now]. He was married to this girl named Meghan Markle from the TV show ‘Suits,’” she revealed on Australia’s “Kyle & Jackie O” show.
Frankel is currently Down Under to promote “RHONY” and her other Bravo show, “Bethenny and Fredrik.”
Frankel said she reached out to Engelson when the actress went public with her engagement to Prince Harry. “I’m like, ‘Holy s–t, your ex is going to be a princess!” she said.

Now, Frankel and Engelson are are in a business relationship together.
“He pitched me a TV show idea to produce together about a bunch of businesswomen, which I think we are going to do together,” she said.
“He looks a little bit like my ex, which scares me,” she noted, seeming to refer to ex-husband Jason Hoppy. “We bypassed the romantics and went into the business. But, I don’t know. There’s something there. There’s something salacious about doing a TV project with Meghan Markle’s ex.”
Markle and Engelson were married for almost two years before their 2013 divorce. She is set to marry Prince Harry on May 19.
