Bethenny Frankel says it’s ‘hard to breathe’ following Dennis Shields’ death

Bethenny Frankel opened up Sunday about the “excruciating-sudden” loss of on-and-off again boyfriend Dennis Shields.

“It’s hard to breathe & I appreciate you giving me the space & support to try to do so,” the “Real Housewives of New York” star tweeted to followers. “It’s excruciating-sudden death is no closure & constant ?s & memories. Our relationship is current so it’s painfully raw. Trying to stay healthy & move through it w tears & close friends. Xo”

Shields was found dead in his Trump Tower apartment earlier this month of a suspected OxyContin overdose. He was 51 years old.

Following the funeral, Frankel 47, posted a photo of Shields on Instagram, as he cuddled with her late dog, Cookie.

“Rest In Peace my sweet babies who gave me endless unconditional love. #nowandforever,” Frankel shared.

Shields reportedly proposed to Frankel in April.

“He proposed to her with a ring in April. She wasn’t wearing the ring,” a friend of the Skinnygirl founder told People. “There were some hurdles to overcome before she could make that level of a commitment. She loved him. He’s her family and her best friend and her confidante. Her partner and her business partner.”

Frankel and Shields began dating in 2016.
