Emma Hernan nearly spoiled the 'Bennifer reunion'! Would history have been different if she did not decline Ben Affleck's offer to date? In the most recent season of 'Selling Sunset,' unbelievable truths were exposed.

In an episode from Season 5, which premiered on Netflix today, Emma Hernan told co-star Chrishell Stause that she had matched with the 'Deep Water' actor on a dating app before he reconciled with the 'On the Floor' singer. "Obviously, I’m still single. I’ve done the whole Raya thing," she said. Chrishell, who wanted to explore the Raya app, clamored to know about Hernаn's experience using the celebrity dating app. “Remember when Ben Affleck went viral because he, like, sent some girl [something]?” said Stаuse, 40. Hernаn was compelled to recall the viral TikTok video after claiming she was another receiver of Affleck's Rаyа messages. Even though they exchanged DMs, they never met in person. "You could have thwarted Bennifer," Stаuse laughed. "He was on the prowl," said Hernаn, who joined the Netflix series during Season 4. “We have а connection to Boston”, Hernаn said. “It was а delightful experience.”

While she might not have got to known the Academy Award winner, in season 5, Hernan did get closer to another man. 'Coming For All Your Coin' featured Emma conversing with Micah, a property developer. He was dubbed "eye candy" by her. Emma Hernan isn't one to mix business with pleasure. But when she met Micah McDonald about an opulent home he was developing on Lloydcrest Drive in Los Angeles, she couldn't help but flirt. It wasn't because of the property – Emma is a multi-millionaire — but because Micah is gorgeous, accomplished, and secure, and he compliments her on every level. After he reacted to her banter by inviting her out for drinks at his soon-to-open restaurant and bar, the vegan empanada company owner became concerned that he was a "f**kboy," but she knew she had to see it through. The reality is that Emma and Micah recognized they had a lot in common during their little talk, so it makes complete sense for them to pursue their relationship. Whether it was their love for their family or their enthusiasm for both property investment and the F&B industries, the two were always on the same page. Their Mezcal date at Micah's Sagrado Restaurant in Atwater Village, was full of not only friendly conversations but also a few innuendos. The date only confirmed their chemistry. Despite this, it appears that neither Micah nor Emma made a move that night.
Later on, the pair discussed their thoughts about being friends first before becoming involved. Even though Emma is mostly located in Los Angeles and Micah divides his time between the City of Angels and his birthplace of Houston, they have maintained contact and have come closer. When the circumstances demanded it, they were completely professional; nevertheless, when it was just the two of them, Emma and Micah just enjoyed one other's company and also got a bit cuddly in his hot tub, all the while keeping things clean. The fact that Micah and Emma don't even follow each other on social media tells a lot about their present situation, but we can't rule out the possibility that they dated at one point. After all, not only did Micah extol Emma's "go-getter" mentality on the Netflix original, but she also said she envisioned a future with him.

Who is Emma Hernan dating now?

On February 24, 2022, just three months after Season 4, Emma and Peter were seen having lunch together. Fans immediately began to question if the pair, who had previously been engaged, had reconciled. However, a source told Us Weekly that the two are "not dating" and that they have remained friends after their breakup. Hernan was apparently "loving" her single life, according to the source. Emma could easily date someone right now if she wanted to, but it looks like she's having the time of her life as a stunning single lady in Los Angeles. The blond queen is the CEO of Emma Leigh & Co., a multi-million dollar food company, a former model, a dedicated real estate agent, and a reality TV star on 'Selling Sunset'.
