Bethenny Frankel mourns Dennis Shields following his funeral

Bethenny Frankel addressed the death of her on-and-off boyfriend, Dennis Shields, on Monday morning.

After attending his funeral in Long Island, the reality star posted a picture of Shields laying in bed with her dog Cookie, who passed away earlier this year, on her Instagram. “Rest In Peace my sweet babies who gave me endless unconditional love,” she wrote. She added the hashtag “#nowandforever.”

Shields, 51, was found dead in his Trump Tower apartment on Friday morning of a suspected OxyContin overdose. Though Frankel recently admitted that she “loves” the millionaire investment banker in an episode of the “Real Housewives of New York,” she also said she “could never marry him.”

Shields, however, gushed about Frankel as recently as last week. “She’s great. She’s a great mother. She’s a great person. She’s really, really smart. She is terrific in every way,” he said on a business podcast.

Jill Zarin, Frankel’s former “Housewives” co-star expressed her condolences. “I know what it is like to lose someone so soon. It’s unbearable,” Zarin told us on Friday. “There is nothing worse than sudden death. You can’t prepare. There is no time to say goodbye.”
