Bethenny Frankel Hits the Beach With Younger Beau Michael Cerussi (VIDEO)

Long Island may not have the most tropical or exotic of beaches, but Real Housewives of New York City alum Bethenny Frankel looked like she was having a blast anyway as she and boytoy Michael "Mac" Cerussi III hit the waves on July 27.

Paparazzi pics show Bethenny on a paddleboard with her 34-year-old financier boyfriend off the shores of Shelter Island — him doing the paddling, of course — with the reality star and Skinnygirl mogul dressed in a white tank top, denim cutoffs, aviator sun glasses, and a baseball cap.

Not really sure why she chose that attire — denim takes forever to dry, and getting a white top wet is just begging for a wardrobe malfunction. (Sure enough, the pics do show a nip clear as a summer's day, but you know we can't show you that, but you can see a pixelated version here.)

Bethenny filed for divorce from husband Jason Hoppy in early 2013 and started seeing Mac early this year. "I am dating, and I'm happy," she revealed on Watch What Happens Live two months ago. "I'm good. I finally feel a little bit of liberation and a little bit of freedom, just a little bit of not feeling so bad. It's been a really, really hard time."

By the looks of this beach day, she really is a happy camper these days!
