Bethenny Frankel wiped away tears while discussing late on/off boyfriend Dennis Shields on Thursday during the first part of the RHONY reunion on Bravo.

The 48-year-old Skinnygirl lifestyle brand creator was asked early during the season 11 reunion about Dennis, who died of a drug overdose last August at his apartment in Trump Tower in New York City at age 51.

Reunion host Andy Cohen, 51, noted that Dennis had accompanied Bethenny to the last several reunions of The Real Housewives Of New York City.

‘He liked minutiae,’ Bethenny said. ‘He’s always on my mind. He’s very missable’.

She recalled a few of his favorite sayings and Luann de Lesseps, 52, told Bethenny that he ‘absolutely adored you’.

‘I know. I know. I miss that,’ Bethenny said as her voice cracked with emotion.

She later opened up about their relationship after watching clips of herself coping with his death during season 11.

Bethenny wiped away tears after the montage as Andy asked how she was doing nearly a year after Dennis died.

‘I’m doing well. I actually think I’m doing well. It comes in waves, there are delayed reactions. I really have moved away from it,’ Bethenny said.

Bethenny said that she still can’t believe that he’s gone.

‘I loved him deeply, and I don’t know if I would have been able to be in the place that I’m in now if he were still here,’ she said.

She also acknowledged they were broken up at the time of his death.

‘So, we had broken up many times. He was always in my life,’ Bethenny said adding that Dennis would promise to change to get back in her life.

‘Truthfully, when you’re older, you don’t know if you’re going to get your big fairytale,’ she explained.

‘Because I had this security presence in Dennis, where if it was Thanksgiving and I was going to be alone I could always be with him, I wasn’t giving myself what I deserved in a relationship,’ she added.

Bethenny also revealed that she felt ‘alone’ in their relationship.

‘Dennis could not be present. We would be together and so strong and very in love, and then he would disappear,’ Bethenny said.

She shared that Dennis promised to make Mother’s Day special for her and her nine-year-old daughter Bryn.

‘I ended up alone for Mother’s Day because he went to sleep and he stayed in bed all day,’ Bethenny said.

‘I was always alone. It was worse because I would say to him, ”I’d rather be alone than in a relationship feeling alone”,’ Bethenny said.

Bethenny was asked by a viewer if she was engaged to Dennis when he died and she replied that she didn’t consider them to be ‘really engaged’.

Dennis proposed and Bethenny said she accepted the ring, but with a ‘let’s see’ outlook.

Bethenny has been dating real estate developer and film producer Paul Bernon, 41.

She said they remain together but he likely will not be on the show anytime soon.

‘He is a very private, conservative, reserved person. …He is calm and balanced, and this is not for him,’ Bethenny said.
