The Real Housewives of New York Star Talks About JLo and Ben Affleck's Marriage Challenges ...

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck wed on July 16 in Las Vegas, but everything from JLos' first ex-husband to his contemporaries has shared their thoughts on the nuptials, including how long or how short it will take. Now, Bethenny Frankel of Real Housewives of New York shares her own thoughts on the Hollywood couple's next move.

The famous TV personality reflected on her Just B with Bethenny Frankel podcast where she discussed how being in a relationship in the public eye can be exciting at first. But she added that trying to keep up with the outside perception versus the actual reality did a lot on her, which she believes could be the case for Bennifer 2.0: Married Edition.

It takes a toll on you. You kind of believe the excitement to be real and be a part of the relationship. So, you are in a relationship and everybody else believes it's wonderful and you're all in this together. And that's a dangerous dynamic.

Bethenny Frankel is basically implying that their Gigli co-stars relationship might be mainly based on hype and nostalgia, which isn't good for longevity. More importantly, she believes the two aren't doing much to avoid the dangers of said-hype, much like in their first time dating in the early '90s. She noted that their paparazzi-packed honeymoon trip to Paris, which is one of the most touristic cities in the world, was proof that they aren

Ben Affleck has spoken openly about his alcoholism experiences in his first marriage to Jennifer Garner, but Bethenny Frankel believes the growing scrutiny surrounding Affleck and JLo's fairytale second chance will be even more triggering for his alcohol issues.

And I've grown up very fast, very young, and so I understand this. Addicts are not supposed to be treated as if they're made of glass; but stress is not great for an addict.

JLo is more well-known than Ben Affleck at this point in time (which is arguable), and that the latter will have a lot of activity due to her notoriety. In particular, Bethenny Frankel expressed her displeasure with Lopez posing naked when she launched her new body care line on her 53rd birthday/honeymoon day.

Bethenny Frankel has been a Bravo fan for eight seasons, and she has demonstrated on her other shows that she is not one to mince words, even about those who are way out of her pay grade, like the now-presidents Mr. and Mrs. Ben and Jen Affleck.

Ben Affleck said at this stage in his life, he has learned to keep the relationship private only sharing the details he feels comfortable with. JLo has backed up those feelings, saying they now know what is real and what is not.

Ben and Jens should be no exception. At least, the children from previous relationships are all reportedly blending nicely together, and the newlyweds are on the same page about where to live. So, Bethenny Frankel may end up one of the naysayers on the footnote of their iconic love story. Time will tell.
