Bethenny Frankel is going through a very hard time following the passing of her on again, off again boyfriend, Dennis Shields. Thankfully, however, she has been receiving a lot of support including from her many fans.
The reality TV star took to social media today to show gratitude for all the love that has been flooding her platform.
As you may know, the man was tragically found dead in his Trump Tower apartment a week ago.
A spokesperson from the Office of Chief Medical Examiner of the City of New York released a statement through E! News on August 10 that read: ‘The medical examiner’s office’s investigating the death of one man believed to be Dennis Shields and found at the Trump Tower. The investigation’s ongoing, and we will release cause and manner of death when completed.’
Meanwhile, one insider told the outlet that the Real Housewives star was ‘heartbroken’ by the news.
Frankel made sure to say her last goodbye to the man on Monday by attending his funeral.
She paid tribute to the ex on social media as well by posting a pic that featured Shields in bed with Bethenny’s pet dog Cookie who also died, last fall.
‘Rest In Peace my sweet babies who gave me endless unconditional love. #nowandforever,’ she wrote in the caption.
But while Frankel is mourning the passing of Shields, it looks like her custody battle with Jason Hoppy continues, more vicious than ever.
Apparently, Hoppy decided to use Shields’ death against Frankel, arguing she is an unfit mother.

It’s definitely been a really difficult week for the star but thankfully, she has been receiving a lot of support and love from her fans, and that helped.
That is why, today, Frankel took to her platform to share a simple but powerful message: ‘Thank you,’ followed by a heart emoji.
