Bethenny Frankel is opening up about her on and off relationship with Dennis Shields!

Bethenny Frankel shares a lot on The Real Housewives of New York City, however; when it comes to her personal life she is often pretty private. The Skinnygirl mogul is focused on rasing her eight year old daughter, Bryn, and running her successful business. Ever since Bethenny parted ways from her ex-husband, she has been keeping her relationships very private. She’s had no choice due to all of the drama following her decision to divorce her ex. However; Bethenny has spoke about her one relationship on RHONY. Bethenny has had a long off and on relationship with her good friend, Dennis Shields.

New York, NY – New York, NY – Bethenny Frankel shops for a new home with new boyfriend Dennis Shields as the two are seen holding hands as they explore new reality in NYC. The couple is being escorted around town by famous realtor Fredrik Eklund as they check out multi-million dollar listings.

It turns out they first met almost 30 years ago when he dated and later married one of her friends from high school. Bethenny didn’t keep in touch with her fellos classmate, but back in 2016 she began dating Dennis, since they share a lot of mutual friends. The details of when they started dating became a topic of conversation at the RHONY reunion but Bethenny is adamant they didn’t do anything sneaky, and she was not still with her ex-husband.

According to People magazine, Bethenny recently talked about her relationships with Dennis. Bethenny explained, “I’ve been with someone on and off for years. It’s like a partnership where if we’re not being teammates and it’s not working and one man is down, then the other man is down. We’re trying to really kind of be good partners and be good teammates and I think relationships oddly are — and this sounds cold — but a little bit like business. If both people aren’t happy about it but slightly uncomfortable and giving up something or giving in to something, it doesn’t work.” She added, “So both partners have to say, ‘All right, I’m in it for this.'”

In February sources told People that the pair wasn’t still together. However; there have been a lot of reports in the recent months that they are back together. Bethenny revealed she might be all in it. She said, “I think we might be at that point, believe it or not. I haven’t said that to anyone yet.” They were friends for around 27 years before they dated, so they have a great foundation. It’s always important to be friends first and have a solid foundation as you begin dating. I think Bethenny and Dennis make a cute couple and they seem like the perfect match for one another. Regardless of if they are in a relationship, I feel like they’ll have a friendship no matter what. That is a beautiful thing. I wish them both the best!
