So… I don’t watch any of the Real Housewives shows. In fact, I don’t even have cable. But while I don’t watch the show that made her famous, I certainly know who Bethenny Frankel is.
She’s the founder of a whole bunch of different business ventures, she’s been on ‘Shark Tank’, and I’m preeetty sure she had her own talk show for a while.
All of this is to say that in all actuality – it doesn’t MATTER who she is – this is awful.
Proof that drug use – and drug overdoses – can affect ANYONE.
(MEGA) rich or poor, black or white, drugs do not discriminate…
But they DO destroy lives.
The on-again-off-again boyfriend of “Real Housewives of New York City” star Bethenny Frankel was found dead on Friday in Trump Tower in Manhattan, the medical examiner told Fox News.
Police told Fox News a man was found dead in the midtown New York City tower, but they declined to confirm his identity or the cause of death. The medical examiner told Fox News the man is Dennis Shields, 51, who has had a romance with the SkinnyGirl mogul since 2016.
The Medical Examiner’s office is currently investigating Shields’ cause of death. According to the New York Post, Shields, who was living at Trump Tower at the time of his death, asked his assistant to administer Narcan at 9 a.m. The Post reports he died of a suspected overdose.
I think many make the mistake of assuming the drug epidemic sweeping our nation couldn’t possibly affect them – that’s for “Those” people.
Well… that’s wrong.
People from ALL walks of life being affected by the drug crisis gripping our nation.
Police told Fox News Shields was dead on arrival.
Frankel and Shields appeared together on Bravo’s “Real Housewives.” He was filmed with the popular cast member during the show’s most recent season.
Again… I don’t know anything about him. But it doesn’t MATTER. This isn’t sad because he happened to be dating a famous person.
This is sad because it’s happening ALL AROUND OUR COUNTRY.
I can’t say I understand it – I don’t. I don’t understand the appeal. But it’s far past time we get serious about what’s going on.
