Heartbroken Bethenny Frankel 'Throwing Herself Into Work' After On-Off Boyfriend's OD Death

Bethenny Frankel is reeling from the death of her on-off boyfriend, businessman Dennis Shields — and she's feeling alone in the aftermath of the tragedy, sources exclusively told

After losing her love and her beloved dog Cookie, “Bethenny has almost no one in her life,” an insider revealed. "She doesn't talk to her family, and she's on the outs with some of her best friends."

“With Bethenny everything is about making money,” continued the source. “She uses her real life experiences in her businesses. I would be surprised if she releases a self-help book on grief in the next six months.”
