The new year has barely begun, but Bethenny Frankel is already having a lot of fun in 2014, thanks to a new man in her life.

The talk-show host, 43, was seen getting cozy with a mystery hunk at the Mondrian Hotel in South Beach on New Year's Eve, whom PEOPLE has now identified as Michael A. Cerussi III, who goes by the name of "Mac."

Cerussi works in financial services in New York, and his family has owned a home in northern Palm Beach County.

“Bethenny was with Mac and looked very happy on New Year’s Eve,” a source tells PEOPLE. “They kissed at midnight and other times during the evening. They looked like they were having a great night.”

Frankel recently talked about the qualities she is looking for in a partner, including the "ability to take charge".

Frankel is divorced from Jason Hoppy, with whom she has a 3-year-old daughter, Bryn.
