Bethenny Frankel's Boyfriend Found Dead in Trump Tower Home

Bethenny Frankel's Boyfriend Found Dead in Trump Tower Home

"Killing time while waiting for a mammogram", Carole Radziwill, 54, tweeted on August 10, in what is now a very unfortunate word choice, considering that Bethenny Frankel " s on-again, off-again boyfriend, Dennis Shields, 51, would be found dead hours later.

The Real Housewives of NY star Bethenny Frankel's boyfriend Dennis Shields died at his apartment in Trump Tower this morning. An autopsy is now reportedly pending.

Bethenny and Dennis knew each other for almost 30 years before they started dating in 2016. The two have been on-and-off ever since.

The New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) said Friday in a statement it was investigating the death of a man who was "believed to be" Dennis Shields and that an investigation was ongoing.

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.

Before entering into a relationship following Frankel's contentious divorce from ex-husband Jason Hoppy, the two knew each other for almost 30 years.


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

Shields has made numerous appearances on "The Real Housewives of NY".

The Skinny Girl founder seemingly opened up about their romance, which began in 2016, back in May on "The Steve Harvey Show", describing their relationship as "a little bit like business" without mentioning him by name. She has a daughter with Hoppy.

OMG, I'm shocked by this news. "It's like a partnership where if we're not being teammates and it's not working and one man is down, then the other man is down".

She continued, "If both people aren't happy about it but slightly uncomfortable and giving up something or giving in [to] something, it doesn't work". "I didn't say it to Dennis, but in my own mind, I said, '90 days. I haven't said that to anyone yet".
