When it comes to picking great gifts, Paul Bernon’s on a roll.
Bethenny Frankel showed off her “really special” five-year anniversary gift from her fiancé on Instagram Wednesday: a crystal-covered Judith Leiber bag ($7,295) in the shape of a roller skate.
“He has always been a very good gift giver and his game has always been unbelievable. He just takes a lot of thought, he cares, he’s wonderful, I love him,” the Skinnygirl founder gushed in a video unwrapping her haul.
“It’s really special, it’s thoughtful, it has meaning. I’m scared to drop it,” the 52-year-old continued. “You know, I’m a roller skater my whole life, I spent my whole life at the roller rink.”
While the piece includes wheels that actually spin, the podcast host admitted the meaningful minaudière might not be the most practical of purses.
“You can hold your thoughts and dreams and a lip gloss and some money and a Tic-Tac — maybe a pack of Tic-Tacs,” the ever-quippy star remarked.
6Bethenny Frankel was giddy over the $7,295 crystal-covered purse fiancé Paul Bernon gifted her for their five-year anniversary.6The piece holds special meaning, as the former “RHONY” star used to roller skate as a child.
Bravo fans will certainly remember the many times Frankel recounted her childhood love of roller skating — and her 2011 “roller girl” Halloween costume featuring a blond wig, terrycloth romper and actual skates, which she wore all night to Kelly Bensimon’s party.
Fans approved of Bernon’s gift, with one commenting, “He gets you. That’s we all want.”
Another wrote, “The genuine happiness on your face when you were looking over it and describing it says it all!! So happy for you that you found your person!”

Bernon loves to lavish his lady love with gifts; in her video, Frankel also spoke about the the incredible flowers he sent the day after their first date.
The film producer also has a way with bling, having proposed with an enormous million-dollar engagement ring in 2021.
Though the beauty mogul appears to be over the moon about her mate, she said earlier this year that she actually has no plans to wed Bernon.
“I love my life, I love my fiancé. He’s an amazing life partner and I don’t want to sign a contract with someone I love and I don’t want to plan a massive wedding for everybody else and not what we want,” Frankel said.

She was previously married to Jason Hoppy before going through a grueling 10-year divorce and custody battle over daughter Brynn.
Despite all of the love, Frankel did have one gripe: Her four-figure purse comes as a single shoe rather than a pair.
Perhaps Bernon will complete the set in another five years.
