Bethenny Frankel
celebrated New Year's Eve with a new man by her side -- and he's incredibly hot!

Almost a year to the day since filing for divorce from husband Jason Hoppy, the former "Real Housewives of New York" star hit the town in Miami. And she wasn't alone.

While little is known about the mystery man she showed up with to the Mondrian's year-end bash, we can tell you that he's one sexy stud.

The two posed for photos together inside the party, holding onto each other in an affectionate embrace (above). The two were also reportedly seen making out at midnight.

Their love fest continued today, as they were spotted on the beach together -- with each of them showing off their enviable beach bods (below).

"It's like having food poisoning and not wanting to eat again," she said at the time. "In theory it sounds somewhat appetizing, but in reality it just doesn't seem all that interesting to me."
Clearly something has changed. Not a bad way to start off 2014!
