Dennis passed away in August.

Bethenny Frankel is opening up about an accidental text she recently sent to her deceased on-again-off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields. The Real Housewives of New York star shared the story on Twitter on Saturday, being quite vulnerable with her followers.

“I just accidentally sent dennis a text. It was about him to my bff. That was odd,” she recounted.

Dennis was found dead in his Trump Tower apartment on August 10 from an apparent drug overdose. The 51-year-old and Bethenny were extremely close and his passing left a profound effect on the Skinnygirl mogul.

One of Bethenny’s fans responded to her tweet, letting her know that Dennis heard her through the accidental text, which prompted the reality star to share another bizarre story about talking to Dennis after he passed on.

“Something else very weird happened. I was texting w one of his friends and it said ‘handwritten text’ and read ‘hurry the f*** up’ but neither of us wrote that nor do we even know how to hand write on a text. How bizarre,” she shared.

It appeared as if Bethenny had some sort of paranormal experience while texting with her friend. Several of her fans shared their own stories regarding communicating with loved ones after they had passed on, and how they had similar texting stories.

Bethenny has been talking about Dennis recently in the press, admitting that her late boyfriend would be proud of her after her Skinnygirl Jeans line sold out on HSN.

“He would probably come with me and he would’ve been sitting behind the scenes, looking at the computer, seeing how much we were selling and cheering me on and telling me how great I was doing,” she told People. “He always paints a better picture of myself than the real picture.”

The reality star has been working tirelessly helping those affected by Hurricane Florence last month. Through her charity, B Strong, Bethenny has donated supplies and money to those displaced and in need. Her charity work was a welcome distraction after losing Dennis so suddenly back in August.

Fans have noticed that Bethenny had been losing weight recently, and some have left comments on her Instagram photos regarding her drop. Responding to trolls, Bethenny let them know her weight loss was due to the “grief diet,” and it wasn’t a strategy she recommended to those trying to lose weight.

Casting for RHONY Season 11 has not yet been confirmed, but Bethenny is likely to appear again, especially since her frenemy Carole Radziwill is not returning.
