(You may recall Demi Lovato was administered the drug during her reported overdose.) The Post's sources believe Shields was taking the prescription painkiller OxyContin. EMS pronounced him deceased on the scene.

Shields and "Real Housewives of New York" star Frankel have been dating since 2016. Real Housewives of New York City co-stars Sonja Morgan, 54, and Carole Radziwill, 54, have been the only two co-stars (so far) to publicly speak up about the incident. "It's terrible. She's known him for over 20 years", the insider says. She explained that if they weren't "being teammates and it's not working, and one man is down, then the other man is down". He reportedly died of an apparent overdose, although the New York City Medical Examiner's office said an official cause of death will not be determined until the investigation is complete.

The NYPD spokesperson told People: "Preliminarily, we are investigating it as a possible overdose".

This is a breaking news story.

In a statement to News 4, Shields' wife Jill Schwartzberg Shields said the family was devastated by the loss of their "loving father and friend". "His spirit lives on in our children".

The next new episode of RHONY airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo. "She's a great mother". She's really, really smart.

"Jill and Dennis spoke every day, that is true, and they were each other's best friend", a source revealed to the Post. We remained friends the whole time that I was married - nothing but friends. "But we do break up a lot".
