According to the Post, the NY banker asked his assistant to give him Narcan, an emergency medication meant to reverse the effects of a narcotic overdose, but he lost consciousness before the medication could take effect. He woke up Friday AM feeling ill and asked his housekeeper to go to the pharmacy to buy Narcan, which blocks the effects of an opioid overdose. EMS responded and pronounced him dead at the scene.
Shields, who had been friends with Frankel for almost 30 years before they began dating in 2016, lost consciousness before the medication could kick in.
Shields has made numerous appearances on "The Real Housewives of NY".
Speaking on the business podcast Listen Up Show with Mitchell Chadrow, Shields said: 'She's great.
See what Bethenny last publicly shared about her and Dennis' relationship. It is unclear the status of their relationship.
"If both people aren't happy about it but slightly uncomfortable and giving up something or giving in [to] something, it doesn't work", Frankel added.
His ex-wife Jill Schwartzberg said in a statement: "Dennis was, and will always be, the love of my life". Shields, the CEO of the company LawCash, previously dated and later married Frankel's friend from high school. "His spirit lives on in our children".
Bethenny Frankel is a reality TV star and a successful businesswoman. So both partners have to say, 'All right, I'm in it for this.' And I think we might be at that point, believe it or not.
Our thoughts are with Dennis' loved ones at this time. According to reports, they were still together as of March of this year.
Original cast member, Jill Zarin, also recently lost her husband Bobby to cancer in January.
