Bethenny Frankel’s best friend Sonja Morgan is speaking out about Dennis Shields’ tragic death in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com.
“This is heartbreaking,” Morgan told Radar exclusively. “I spoke to Bethenny yesterday to say I was going to Coast Rica, in case she wanted to come and get away. She’s been working so much.”
Morgan, who has been Frankel’s most trusted confidante throughout the most recent season of The Real Housewives of New York, called businessman Shields her pal’s “rock” — and claimed he shared a close relationship with her daughter Bryn, 7.

“Dennis is her rock,” she continued. “Dennis was important to her, and her daughter. Another tragedy in her life. I’m so sad for her.”
“This saddens me to no end because it seems to be never-ending for her.”
Morgan is currently vacationing at The Retreat in Costa Rica, and won’t be able to attend services for Shields, she told Radar.
As Radar previously reported, Shields, 51, was found dead in his Trump Tower apartment this morning.
