Bethenny Frankel's Boyfriend Found Dead in Trump Tower Home

Dennis Shields, the ex-boyfriend of Bethenny Frankel, has died of an apparent overdose.

Dennis Shields, the on-again, off-again boyfriend of "Real Housewives of New York" star Bethenny Frankel, was found dead in his Trump Tower home Friday, the New York City Police Department confirmed to CBS News. He asked his assistant to administer Narcan, medication used to reverse the effects of opioids, about 9 a.m., the Post reported. An autopsy is now reportedly pending.

Banker Dennis Shields has known Frankel for years but the pair only started dating in 2016. The two have been on-and-off ever since.

It's unclear when Dennis fell into a state of unconsciousness, but at some point the maid realized he was unresponsive and called 911.

Frankel was joined by Shields on Bravo's Real Housewives and appeared in the most recent series.

Bethenny has not yet publicly commented.

Frankel addressed their relationship in a May interview with Steve Harvey. After one fan said that Bethenny "needs like 12 prozac and a year long nap" because she acts like a child "who is well past their bedtime", Carole brought up "that PSA "It's 10pm, do you know where your children are?..." She has a daughter with Hoppy. "So both partners have to say, 'All right, I'm in it for this", said Frankel. "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".

OMG, I'm shocked by this news. TMZ adds that cops believe he overdosed on oxycodone.
