The "RHONY" star's interior designer, Brooke Gomez, was found dead in her $1.3 million New York City apartment on Sunday night.

Also startling are reports that Gomez’s body was found in an “advanced state of decomposition” when she was discovered on Sunday night.

Sources indicated that Frankel’s interior designer was dead for more than one week before her body was recovered and that Gomez’s beloved Brussels Griffon dog, Edie, survived alone for more than one week by feeding on the 49-year-old’s remains.

According to Daily Mail, Gomez’s Edie is “totally fine” and the superintendent of the apartment building where the interior designer passed away reportedly plans to adopt the pooch.

“The dog is totally fine,” one friend of the deceased said. “The super's wife is adopting her. Everyone thought to keep the dog's environment as normal as possible, that this was the right thing to do.”
