It hasn’t even been a week since Bethenny Frankel triumphantly sold her $7 million Tribeca loft in just one day, but the Skinny Girl is already back on the hunt. The Post reports that she and “Million Dollar Listing’s” Fredrik Eklund (he’s also responsible for her recent sale) checked out a $20 million West Village penthouse yesterday. The incredible, 11,000-square-foot duplex at 165 Perry Street–which boasts glass floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, several landscaped terraces around a central courtyard, and a seven-car garage–was famously rented by Robert DeNiro for two years after his Upper West Side apartment caught fire in 2012.

On the first floor, you’ll find the grand living room with its wood-burning fireplace, an entertainment room off the central atrium, a formal dining room, and a home office.

The open chef’s kitchen is also on the first floor and comes complete with a barbecue grill, separate prep kitchen, and walk-in pantry.

Upstairs, the master suite has two windowed walk-in closets, its own fireplace, an en-suite bathroom with a steam room, and private access to the outdoor terrace. In total, there are five bedrooms in the home.

The apartment originally hit the market in 2012 as an $80,000/month rental, then reappeared in 2014 for $95,000/month after DeNiro moved out. It then tried to sell in April 2015 for $40 million, and after two other price chops (first to $30 million, then to $25.5 million) it’s now hoping to find a buyer at $20 million.

The Post reported that a source said Frankel wants her “‘legally married’ banker boyfriend Dennis Shields to cough up the dough for [the apartment],” but another source said she’s house hunting for a new show she’s developing for her production company. And judging by her history with reality television, and the fact that she bought and renovated a $4.2 million Soho loft not too long ago, that’s likely the case.
