RHONY STARS REACT TO NEWS OF BETHENNY FRANKEL’S BOYRFRIEND’S DEATH

The Real Housewives of New York City are devastated over the loss of Dennis Shields. He reportedly died of an overdose. Shields was 51 years old and was found dead at his apartment in Trump Tower, TMZ was first to report.

He was star Bethenny Frankel’s on-and-off partner since 2016, and has appeared on the hit Bravo series many times. Frankel, 47, met Shields through his ex-wife, Jill, whom she went to high school with. In a statement to People, Jill said: "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 time."

The New York banker asked his assistant to give him the emergency medicine Narcan, which reverses the effects of narcotic overdoses, but it didn’t work in time, The New York Post reports.

FRANKEL SAID HE WASN’T FOR HER

In a recent episode of RHONY, Frankel admitted Shields wasn’t Mr. Right, Page Six notes.

"It’s a really hard thing to realize, that someone you love, is just — doesn’t mean they’re the right person," Frankel says, noting they could never live together.

"Yeah," said Dorinda Medley.

"And I wish he was," Frankel adds. "And I may live here forever alone. And I’m OK with that."

Jill Zarin told the Post that she was "devastated" for Frankel. "I know what it is like to lose someone so soon. It’s unbearable," Zarin, who lost her husband Bobby to cancer earlier this year, told the outlet. "There is nothing worse than sudden death. You can’t prepare. There is no time to say goodbye."

Carole Radziwill, who often sparred with Frankel, took to social media to share her condolences tweeting: "I just heard the sad news about Dennis. He was a good man. My condolences to all his family and friends. So tragic."

"This is heartbreaking... Dennis is her rock," co-star Sonja Morgan told Radar. "Dennis was important to her, and her daughter. Another tragedy in her life. I’m so sad for her...This saddens me to no end because it seems to be never-ending for her."

The New York banker asked his assistant to give him the emergency medicine Narcan, which reverses the effects of narcotic overdoses, but it didn’t work in time, The New York Post reports.
