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

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

"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.

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

The 51-year-old had reportedly asked his assistant to give him Narcan - an opiate antidote - because he thought he was overdosing on prescription pills, reveals an insider.

Frankel and Shields were longtime friends before starting a relationship a couple of years ago. The two dated on and off ever since.

The medical examiner's office is investigating the death of a man believed to be Dennis Shields, found at the Trump Tower.




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

So far, Bethenny has yet to comment on the sad passing of her former boyfriend.

Shields most recently appeared on the current season of "RHONY" as Frankel's guest for a dinner party where de Lesseps questioned Shields on his relationship with Frankel seemingly forgetting her 2016 accusations. Dennis was important to her, and her daughter.

"He said, 'You better get out ASAP.' That's how I knew to get out, otherwise I'd still be in there", Shield recalled. "We're trying to really kind of be good partners and be good teammates and I think relationships oddly are - and this sounds cold - but a little bit like business".

Speaking about her massive new townhouse, Bethheny said, "I may live here forever alone, and I'm okay with that". If both people aren't happy about it but slightly uncomfortable and giving up something or giving in [to] something, it doesn't work. "So both partners have to say, 'All right, I'm in it for this", said Frankel.
