Bethenny Frankel Breaks Her Silence After On-Off Boyfriend Dennis Shields Death!

Bethenny Frankel paid tribute to her on-off boyfriend, Dennis Shields, who died at the age of 51 on Friday, August 10. “Rest In Peace my sweet babies who gave me endless unconditional love. #nowandforever,” the Real Housewives of New York City captioned an Instagram photo of Shields and her dog, Cookie, who died in October 2017, on Monday, August 13.

As previously reported, Shields was found dead in his room at Trump Tower in New York City on Friday morning. The NYPD confirmed that he was unconscious when officers arrived. EMS pronounced him dead on the scene soon after. The NYC Medical Examiner is investigating the cause of death. Us Weekly confirmed on Monday that Frankel attended Shields’ Long Island funeral.

Shields allegedly overdosed on prescription pills. He reportedly asked his assistant to administer Narcan, which is used to reverse the effects of a narcotic overdose, but lost consciousness before the medication kicked in, according to The New York Post.

Shields and his estranged wife, Jill Schwartzberg, separated several months before he began dating Frankel. Schwartzberg released a statement shortly after his death: “We are all heartbroken. Dennis was, and will always be, the love of my life. His spirit lives on in our children. Please respect our family’s privacy at this time.”
