Bethenny Frankel’s Ex-Boyfriend Dennis Shields Found Dead In NYC Apartment

Bethenny Frankel's Boyfriend Found Dead in Trump Tower Home

Dennis Shields was found dead Friday in Trump Tower from an apparent oxycodone OD.

Dennis Shields, 51, has been in what the "Real Housewives of New York" star described as an "on and off" relationship since 2016.

Dennis Shields had asked his assistant to administer Narcan around 9 a.m., believing he was overdosing on prescription pills, sources said.

The medical examiner confirmed to Fox News that the man was Shields, its office is now investigating the cause of death and are awaiting an autopsy.

Bethenny Frankel's boyfriend started the binge that killed him Thursday night and realized he was in trouble.

Frankel went to high school with Shield's estranged wife.

"We are all heartbroken". The medical examiner will determine the cause of death although it appears to be an overdose, police said. "His spirit lives on in our children". He was an influential figure not just to the Skinnygirl Cocktails CEO, but to her daughter Bryn Hoppy, 8, as well.

They had a rich history, having met 28 years ago, though their romance didn't start until much later.

Now that RHONY is coming to a close, and with the reunion already having been filmed, we won't be witnessing Bethenny's reaction to the news on Bravo this season.

Bethenny Frankel, 47, needs her friends (and frenemies) now more than ever. "This saddens me to no end because it seems to be never-ending for her".

During a May TV appearance on the Steve Harvey Show, Bethenny opened up about her relationship with Dennis. When she first introduced him on the show she said the pair had known each other for 30 years and he contacted her after a divorce. "We're trying to really kind of be good partners and be good teammates".
