'Real Housewives' Bethenny Frankel's sometime-boyfriend Dennis Shields dead of overdose

Heartbreaking news struck today when Dennis Shields, Bethenny Frankel's ex-boyfriend, was found dead in his Trump Tower apartment.

Bethenny Frankel's "RHONY" co-stars - including frenemy Carole Radziwill - are rallying around her, following her boyfriend, Dennis Shield's, heartbreaking death on August 10.

Police responding to a 911 call say they discovered the body shortly after 9 a.m. on Friday at President Donald Trump's high-rise on Fifth Avenue. TMZ adds that cops believe he overdosed on oxycodone.

Banker Dennis Shields has known Frankel for years but the pair only started dating in 2016.

The dose of Narcan, a drug used to reverse opioid overdoses, did not work before Dennis lost consciousness and, ultimately, died in his home.

The real tragedy is, of course, Dennis's untimely death.

The NYPD spokesperson told People: "Preliminarily, we are investigating it as a possible overdose".

We're told the NY medical examiner's office will determine the cause of death, although it is believed drugs were involved. "Please respect our family's privacy at this time".

Shields, the CEO of litigation funding company LawCash, has long had a close and complex relationship with Frankel, who has a daughter, Bryn, 8, with her ex-husband Jason Hoppy.

In May, she appeared on Steve Harvey's talk show, where she talked about the status of their relationship. In an interview days before his death, Shields said they were still together four weeks ago.

Bethenny recently commented on RHONY that she was taking a break from her relationship from Dennis, but still loved him.

"I've been with someone on and off for years", she shared. "We're trying to really kind of be good partners and be good teammates".
