Dennis Shields Dead - Bethenny Frankel's Ex Boyfriend Dead of Apparent Overdose

Bethenny Frankel's Boyfriend Found Dead in Trump Tower Home

Dennis Shields, the on-and-off boyfriend of Bethenny Frankel, was found dead at his Trump Tower apartment today, reports the New York Post.

According to The New York Post, it seems Shields asked his assistant to give him Narcan, an emergency treatment for opioid overdose, but lost consciousness before it could take effect.

TMZ sources say it may have been oxycodone, but "Extra" has learned the NYC Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death and the investigation is ongoing.

Frankel, who has a daughter from a past marriage, and Shields, CEO of the pre-settlement funding company LawCash, have known each other for nearly 30 years and dated on and off since late 2015.

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.

We were in finals, yes, but if we got to the final we should win it this time. We can improve our offensive play, we can improve our defensive play.

Without naming Dennis, she said: "I've been with someone on and off for years". In January, Frankel said she was single.

The real tragedy is, of course, Dennis's untimely death. While waiting for her medical checkup, Carole made a decision to drag her Real Housewives of NY rival on Twitter.

"We're trying to really kind of be good parents and good teammates and I think relationships oddly are - and this sounds cold - but a bit like business", she added.

"In May, Frankel opened up about her on-again-off-again relationship status with Shields, telling People magazine: "[I've] been on and off in my relationship for so many years that I don't love to get too into it in public, not because I'm hiding anything, more so because I never know exactly where it is, because it's ever-shifting".
