Bethenny Frankel says she’s been on a ‘grief diet’ since the shocking death of her ex Dennis Shields
Bethenny Frankel attributes her recent weight loss to a ‘grief diet’.
The Real Housewives of New York star posted a snap of herself wearing a floral gown via Instagram on Friday with the caption: ‘All you need is love.’
And after a fan asked why the 47-year-old looked thinner, Bethenny replied: ‘Death will do that to a person #griefdiet I don’t recommend it.’
She was referring to the loss of her on again/off again beau Dennis Shields who died of an apparent overdose at his Trump Tower apartment on August 10.

The shocking revelation stunned Bethenny since Dennis had accompanied her to the Real Housewives of New York reunion just weeks prior.
‘Thank you,’ the mother-of-one tweeted a fan last month in response to having received an outpouring amount of support from Bravo viewers following the tragic news.
‘It puts a lot in perspective. 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.’
It’s believed that Bethenny won’t talk about Shields’ death in interviews as Bravo executives hope to keep that as an exclusive storyline for the show’s 11th series.

This would mean that fans could potentially have to wait until April 2019 to see how things unfold for Frankel in the wake of coming to terms with her boyfriend’s death.
Earlier this month, the businesswoman had made it known on Twitter that she was still struggling with the news, telling her 1.6 million followers: ‘Doing anything in or by the water is life-saving.’
‘Beach walks. Ocean swims, wakeboarding, clamming, infrared sauna, jacuzzi & my swim really help. When you feel sad, you cry then you just have to force yourself to shift. It’s so hard but it works.’
The Real Housewives of New York is expected to premiere its 11th series in April 2019.
