Bethenny Frankel's Boyfriend Found Dead in Trump Tower Home

Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel's on-off boyfriend Dennis Shields was found dead.

Frankel and Shields' relationship marked "The Real Housewives of New York City" star's first since her contentious divorce from Jason Hoppy, which was finalized in 2016.

Police responded to a 911 call of an unconscious man inside Trump Tower about 9:19 a.m., officials said in a press release.

Dennis Shields died of a suspected overdose, and reportedly asked his assistant to administer him Narcan on Friday morning, believing he had overdosed on prescription pills. TMZ sources say that the cause of death is thought to be an Oxycodone overdose. Frankel and Shields met some 28 years ago, when he started dating Jill, a high school mate of Frankel's.

It's unclear whether he and Frankel were now romantically involved, but Shields did appear on an April episode of the long-running reality TV show, which she tweeted about, while the two apparently dined together.

The Medical Examiner's office is now investigating Shields' cause of death. "His spirit lives on in our children". According to reports, they were still together as of March of this year.

Bethenny Frankel, 47, needs her friends (and frenemies) now more than ever.

Naturally, Bethenny's RHONY best friend, Sonja, issued the longest statement in an exclusive interview with Radar Online on the same day Dennis passed away. "This saddens me to no end because it seems to be never-ending for her". "So both partners have to say, 'All right, I'm in it for this", said Frankel.

She added that they were trying to be good teammates and partners, and she thinks that relationships are "a little bit like a business".
