Bethenny Frankel may star on a reality show.
She may even be the most famous Bravo reality star of all-time.
But the Skinnygirl entrepreneur was hit with a dose of actual reality just a few weeks ago when her long-time boyfriend, Dennis Shields, died of an accidental drug overdose.
As cliche as it may sound, this tragedy has understandably put things in perspective for Frankel.
And sources now say she may make a drastic decision in the wake of this loss.
Scroll down to find out what we mean and also to learn what Bethenny's fellow Housewives have been saying about her of late...
Her History on the Show
Frankel was hired as a Housewife in 2010 and starred on the program's first four seasons. She then left for her own spinoff and returned in 2014 in time for Season 7.
Her History with Dennis Shields
Frankel and Shields started dating in 2016. The romance was up and it was down, but it was also serious enough that marriage was at least a topic of conversation at times.
Bethenny Pays Tribute
Frankel shared the above photo on Instagram after Shields passed away and wrote: "Rest In Peace my sweet babies who gave me endless unconditional love."
So... Now What?
Now Frankel may move on, realizing that a life spent stirring up fake drama for the sake of ratings is no life at all. "Bethenny has spent over a decade fighting and partying on the Real Housewives," a source tells Radar. "Everything she did was to make herself famous. She even had her wedding televised! But after the death of her boyfriend, she's telling friends that she's going to quit the show."
Yes, It's All Fake. And That Has Taken Its Toll.
"She's sick, absolutely sick of spending hours thinking up things to say to upstage other cast members… And of rehearsing nasty 'zingers,'" adds this insider.
