Star of The Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny Frankel, is back to filming for the upcoming season of the RHONY. The Skinnygirl mogul has been grieving the tragic death of her on-and-off boyfriend, Dennis Shields. She has been opening up about her loss and grieving process. Andy Cohen has now spoken about the tragedy.
Andy told US Weekly, “I mean, man, what a loss. He was a real, he seemed like a real rock and presence in her life. So I know it’s a great loss for her.” As revealed before, Bethenny shared that Dennis was by her side during the RHONY reunion. Bethenny has explained on social media, “He was with me at the reunion & the years prior. He was a genius who could talk about the show minutiae all day. He was my greatest supporter.”
The loss of her loved one has been taking a toll on her. She has even been involuntarily losing weight. When someone on social media told Bethenny she was looking more skinny and asked how she is doing it, she replied, “Death will do that to a person #griefdiet. I don’t recommend it.” Bethenny has also taken to social media to thank everyone for their support during this sad time.
I feel for Bethenny. The loss of a loved one is hard to deal with. She is in mourning and is stressed, which is why she is losing weight. I don’t think she’s trying to lose weight, she doesn’t need to. I believe her that it is due to grief. With time things for her will get better and she will get back to being in good health. It’s nice that she has Andy to lean on during this time. I agree with Andy, it’s a great loss for her. So sad. Hopefully filming will help take her mind off of this sad situation. I’m excited for the RHONY to be back on! I miss them already.
