Bethenny Frankel Posts Father’s Day Tribute to Late Love Dennis Shields

Bethenny Frankel Posts Father’s Day Tribute to Late Love Dennis Shields

Bethenny Frankel is honoring her late on-again, off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields this Father’s Day.

The Skinnygirl mogul, 48, posted an Instagram tribute to Shields — who was found dead in his Trump Tower apartment on Aug. 10 from a suspected overdose — and thanked him for his role in her daughter Bryn’s life.

“Happy Father’s Day,” Frankel began her post. “In memory of Dennis, a man who was a father of five beautiful children and a beautiful influence in my daughter’s life.”

The post featured a photo of the then-couple enjoying themselves during a sunset on the beach. Frankel had met the 51-year-old banker nearly 20 years ago when he dated and later married Jill Schwartzberg, one of her high school friends.

While the pair did not stay in touch, Frankel and Shields shared other mutual friends and began dating in 2016 — several months after he separated from Schwartzberg and three years after she filed for divorce from ex-husband Jason Hoppy.

Shields was still legally married to Schwartzberg when he and Frankel found each other, and he eventually proposed to Frankel last April with a mega-carat rock. Though he was close with her 9-year-old daughter Bryn, Frankel kept their engagement private and never gave Shields a clear yes, telling him that things were on “ice” until some “conditions” had been met and “changes” made, Frankel previously explained.

On the Saturday before Shields’ death, Frankel thought, “I have to exit this dynamic,” she said on an episode of Real Housewives of New York City in April.

“He had such a powerful force in my life and my daughter loved it, that it was like this whole thing that was hard to extricate myself from,” Frankel recalled.

Caitlyn Jenner Gives Shout-Out 'To All the Dads in My Life,' But Leaves Out Tristan Thompson

Looks like Caitlyn Jenner has made her feelings about Khloé Kardashian’s ex crystal clear.

On Sunday, the former Olympian shared a heartfelt Father’s Day post, paying special tribute “to all the dads in my life.”

After starting with her father William, Caitlyn gave a shout-out to sons Burt, 40, Brandon, 38, and Brody, 35, as well as Rob Kardashian, 32.

Caitlyn went on to mention Kim Kardashian West’s husband Kanye West, Kourtney Kardashian’s ex Scott Disick and daughter Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend Travis Scott.

“To all the dads in my life- happy Father’s Day! Starting with my father, a World War Two veteran. Dad, Burt, Brandon, Kanye, Rob, Scott, and Travis – Happy Father’s Day!” Caitlyn wrote alongside a slideshow of images of all the proud papas.

However, there was one father connected to the Kardashian-Jenner siblings who didn’t make the list: Tristan Thompson, 28, with whom Khloé Kardashian, 34, shares daughter True, 14 months. (Khloé and Thompson split after he was accused of cheating on Khloé with family friend Jordyn Woods in February.)

New York Judge, 57, Dies After Having a Heart Attack on the Bench

New York Judge, 57, Dies After Having a Heart Attack on the Bench

Putnam County Court Judge James Reitz died after suffering a heart attack on his bench Friday morning, reports say.

The 57-year-old judge — known for his rehabilitative drug court program — had just finished a case in his courtroom in upstate New York and was preparing for the next one when he suddenly collapsed after asking the court officer for help, CNN reported.

“They were getting ready to call the next case when Reitz said to the court officer that was with him, ‘John, I think I need you to help me here,'” Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell told CNN about the incident.

After the officer performed CPR and used an automatic electronic defibrillator to try and resuscitate him, the ambulance arrived and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead after paramedics had attempted to save him for nearly an hour.

“Unfortunately, he passed away shortly upon arrival there,” Lucian Chalfen, a spokesman for the New York State Unified Court System, told USA Today.

Before becoming a judge for Putnam County in 2007, Reitz was a lawyer at a private practice. He went on to become well known for his drug court program, which focused on helping individuals charged with crimes related to drug addiction find treatment and avoid prison time, according to CNN.

“He ran the best drug court in New York state,” former New York state Sen. Terrence Murphy told CNN. “He literally saved people’s lives. He’s an iconic person and will be sorely missed. Our professional relationship went beyond, into personal friendship, with him and his wife Barbara. I’m still in shock.”

His passion for helping others will be a major loss for the community, Odell told the outlet.

“He was a giant among men in this community. We will be feeling his loss for a very long time,” she added. “I personally lost a dear friend and Putnam County lost a dedicated public servant whose passion was helping anyone who needed help.”
