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

Frankel, who has a daughter from a past marriage, and Shields, CEO of the pre-settlement funding company LawCash, have known each other for nearly 30 years and dated on and off since late 2015.

Dennis and the Real Housewives of New York City star met almost 30 years ago, but didn't start dating until 2016. Apparently, he had asked his assistant to administer Narcan at 9 AM after fearing that he was overdosing on prescription pills (reportedly oxycodone, according to TMZ), lost consciousness before the Narcan, which is used to counteract the effects of opioids, could start working and allegedly overdosed.

Now that RHONY is coming to a close, and with the reunion already having been filmed, we won't be witnessing Bethenny's reaction to the news on Bravo this season.

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

Frankel addressed their relationship in a May interview with Steve Harvey. They arrived at his apartment to find a lifeless Shields, says the Hollywood Reporter. "Dennis was, and will always be, the love of my life", Shields' ex-wife, Jill Shields, said in a statement to People magazine.

The Skinnygirl founder continued, "If both people aren't happy about it but slightly uncomfortable and giving up something or giving in [to] something, it doesn't work".
