    "The Real Housewives of New York" star Bethenny Frankel has a new show and assistant -- a young man from Connecticut.

    From her Skinnygirl business to her pregnancy and wedding ceremony,  Bethenny Frankel has juggled a lot lately.

    But the Real Housewives of New York City star didn’t do it on her own. She enlisted the help of a Connecticut man, the Hartford Courant reports.

    Weston-native Max Meisel landed the job as her assistant. Here's his bio from the “Bethenny Getting Married?" Web site.  

    "This sports junkie came on board as Bethenny’s intern to help manage the crazy workload. Often the butt of Bethenny’s jokes, Max’s thick skin and ability to roll with the punches has enabled him to transition from football jock to “Skinnygirl” connoisseur without breaking a sweat. When he’s not dropping off Bethenny’s dresses at the tailors or diving into lengthy conversations about his passion for "cougars," he spends his time playing sports and writing screenplays. "

    "It's definitely a different world for me, but something I was willing to take a crack at," Meisel told the Courant by phone.

    Meisel is a former Syracuse University football player. Now he’s tackling the task of  being Bethenny’s assistant.

    He was first hired as she prepared for her marriage to fiance', Jason Hoppy

    Meisel, 24, helped the now-new mom and wife manage her busy life while she  filmed her new Bravo series “Bethenny Getting Married?" reports the paper.

    It’s her new spin-off show after all the drama with several seasons of  “Real Housewives.”  Meisel claims he had no clue about her  fame before he accepted the job.

    ”Bethenny Getting Married" premieres Thursday at 10 p.m. on Bravo.
