Bethenny Frankel Shares Touching Birthday Tribute To Late Fiancé Dennis Shields

By Jeff Mazzeo

Former "Real Housewives of New York" star Bethenny Frankel penned an emotional tribute to her ex-fiancé, Dennis Shields on what would have been his 53rd birthday on Thursday.

Frankel's on-again/off-again fiancé was found dead in Trump Tower in 2018. A drug overdose was suspected but an autopsy was never completed due to a "religious objection." Frankel was heartbroken at the time but she is keeping his memory alive with her touching post.

"Happy Birthday Dennis... Thinking of you today and every day. It’s been tough recently because the world lost another legend and so many innocent lives," she wrote on social media while referencing the loss of Kobe Bryant.

Gone But Not Forgotten


Bethenny continued her lengthy letter to Dennis, "You are gone but never will be forgotten. You are missed. You are constantly quoted. You are one of a kind. You are eating multiple Nestle crunch bars, Sprites, and JG Mellon double cheese cheeseburgers in heaven, and now you have an amazing basketball player to watch and bet on up there."

Halfway through her statement, Bethenny said that he would be happy with her life choices.

"You would be proud of my decisions and the evolution of my career and my life," she declared. "You would be so excited about all of the announcements coming soon. You were my biggest cheerleader and were positive about a future for me that I never imagined possible."

The former Bravo star then informed Shields how her daughter, Bryn Hoppy is doing and gave an update on her life.

"Bryn is still 'sweet as sugar' as you always refer to her and she misses your blindfolded food tasting contests and leaving trails of chocolate chips. You were right about @biggysmallz being the greatest dogs. Bryn tells everyone: 'Dennis has had more than 30 dogs and says he has never met sweeter dogs.'”

She Says Dennis Would Love Her New BF


The Skinnygirl brand CEO told Dennis that he would get along with her new boyfriend, Paul Bernon at the conclusion of her heartfelt letter.

"We are in good hands with Paul, who you would like and respect and vice versa," she stated. "He looks out for us and is very caring. You always said I would find someone who would take care of me. We miss you. Happy Birthday! I know they have peanut butter chocolate cake and Hemingway in heaven. Everyone misses you and you are still the center of attention-just how you secretly like it. Xoxo"
