's new show, Bethenny Getting Married?, shows her planning her March 2010 wedding to Jason Hoppy and the birth of her daughter, Bryn, last month. But The Real Housewives of New York star recently revealed that this wedding was not her first.

So who is Bethenny's secret first husband?

Frankel married Peter Sussman in 1996. The two were best friends for five years, but Sussman wanted more, and she finally gave in to his advances. Eventually, however, a lack of passion led to a split. Here's what Frankel had to say about her first marriage:

"I loved him because of how much he loved me. I got married too young. I didn't wait for the great love of my life."

So, is Hoppy the "great love of her life"? Most Housewives fans seem to think he's pretty vanilla, not to mention a pushover. And I've even seen some comments on the blogs saying that she just used him to get pregnant and marry her -- on TV.

But I have a little secret of my own? I kinda love him. He's really sweet and nice to her; and they seem to be really attracted to each other. Overall, they seem happy! And as far as him being a pushover? I think if the previews are any indication, we're in for a surprise this season.

Bethenny Getting Married? premieres tonight on BravoTV at 9/10 ET, immediately following The Real Housewives of New York Reunion Special.
