We reported earlier how Bethenny was having a tough time in the aftermath of Dennis’ death. “It hasn’t fully sunk in yet and she’s struggling to come to terms with the fact he’s gone forever. She still picks her phone up first thing in the morning expecting to see a text from him,” a source close to Bethenny told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY in the wake of his death. “And when she sees something she knows he would find funny she still thinks ‘I should send that to Dennis’ before reminding herself that he’s died.”
Bethenny previously mourned Shields’ death in another Instagram post. Sharing a pic of Dennis sleeping back to back with Bethenny’s late dog Cookie, who died in October 2017 after suffering seizures, Bethenny wrote in the caption, “Rest in peace my sweet babies who gave me endless unconditional love,” along with the hashtag “#nowandforever.”
