Bethenny Frankel Is Slowing Things Down This Summer -- Nearly One Year After Dennis Shields' Death

Bethenny Frankel mental health

Bethenny Frankel is slowing things down this summer — and for good reason, too!

The Real Housewives of New York star took to Instagram late Friday to share a meaningful message about her nine-year-old daughter, Bryn, and her future — at least in the short-term, as her summer moves forward on the east coast.

In an IG post with a sexy bikini beach pic taken on Friday afternoon, Bethenny opened up about her focus this summer, writing (below):

“Really taking this summer thing seriously…I made a personal commitment to change my life, slow down, say no more, do less, and focus on my health. Without it, we have nothing. I am having the most incredible summer with my daughter, the greatest joy of my life.”


The 48-year-old RHONY star isn’t afraid to make wholesale changes as needed in her life, and she’s remarkably (and refreshingly) open about it, too.

Here’s the full post (below):

Powerful stuff!

As always, Bethenny looks amazing in her bikini, of course — very stylish for the summer, no question — but it’s not even really about that, this time! It’s clear that she is looking for something bigger now nearly one year after her former on-again, off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields‘ death. Grief has come aplenty over the last 11 months since he passed, of course, but this sure seems like a rewarding moment for the reality TV star and business mogul to take a step back and gather her thoughts, emotions, and feelings — and focus on what’s really important on her life, like her daughter.

Of course, this post comes just one day after Frankel sat down for the RHONY reunion show, during which she opened up a bit more about Shields’ passing, saying (below):

“It comes in waves [the grief]; there are delayed reactions. I really have moved away from it. We had broken up many times. He was always in my life.”

No kidding — and because of that, he will always mean something to her, and in her life… no matter how much time may pass.

What do U think of all this, Perezcious readers?! Bethenny definitely goes full-speed all the time, so it’d seem that a moment like this is a big deal, right?! Maybe she’s finally learning to take a big step back and take it all in?
