A source tells DailyMail.com: “David has developed a close friendship with Caryn Zucker. It’s been the talk of the Upper East Side, Hamptons and Palm Beach since the summer.”

Now all eyes are on the couple’s holiday plans — as The Bidens spend Thanksgiving at Rubenstein’s $20 million Nantucket estate.

“This should be a great Thanksgiving for both of them,” the source added. “Everyone is wondering if they’ll show up for Thanksgiving dinner with the President and the First Family.”

The Biden clan will spend the week eating turkey and talking about the 2024 presidential race at Rubenstein’s 13-acre luxury estate — where the First Family stayed last year.

Our source said, “We all hope that Caryn will now enjoy the holidays with one of the world’s richest men and the President of the United States. Talk about a great next chapter for Caryn, who really deserves it.

“Caryn is charming, sweet and very attractive, so it makes sense that David would be interested in a close friendship with her.”

Philanthropist Rubenstein was married to Alice Rogoff from 1983 to 2017 and they have three children together.

Caryn and Zucker have two children and they split in 2018 during the former TV chef’s long-running “open secret” affair with Gollust.

The source said, “Her ex Jeff will always be remembered for two of his relationships. The first was with Donald Trump and the second with his subordinate Allison Gollust, which led to them both leaving CNN.

“She puts her family first and has kept a dignified silence about Jeff.”

The Zuckers lived in the same Manhattan apartment building as Gollust and her then-husband Billy Hult – and even the doormen knew about the illicit relationship and tried to prevent Caryn and Allison from interacting.

Zucker eventually ended the marriage at a Rosh Hashanah dinner for the Jewish New Year, it has been reported.

Zucker stepped down in February as part of the fallout from the firing of former host Chris Cuomo, who blew the whistle on his ex-boss’s affair in his battle for $18 million severance pay.

Chris was fired in December last year after an internal investigation found that he had helped his brother Andrew, the former governor of New York, deal with a sexual misconduct scandal while still working as a CNN host.

Zucker had refused to pay the remaining $18 million of his contract, citing the conflict of interest between Chris’s relationship with his brother and his CNN broadcast.

Cuomo’s team said it was hypocritical of Zucker to fire Chris for a conflict of interest when he himself has one in his relationship with Gollust, with sources calling it the “worst kept secret in the building.”

Meanwhile, President Biden has said the holidays — a time when the extended family is together — is the time when they will talk seriously about a new bid for the White House.

“I hope Jill and I get some time to really slip away for a week” to talk about running for a second term, the president said at a news conference earlier this year.

Preparations for the arrival of the first family have already started on the island. A large military cargo plane was at the city’s airport on Sunday carrying the equipment needed to secure the president for his stay.

On Monday, a flotilla of Massachusetts State Police motorcycles and SUVs drove from the ferry to the city’s main road to be present for Biden’s visit.

Hundreds of people follow the president wherever he goes: Secret Service agents, support staff and members of the military. They will close off the area around Rubenstein’s house while the Bidens are in residence.

As for the budding relationship, our source says, “Everyone adores Caryn, she’s an amazing woman and we all want her to find happiness.”
