The reality star, Bethenny Frankel has been having an eventful year. Part of that included getting a new boyfriend, Paul Bernon. The couple hasn’t been that public, besides being seen kissing by the paparazzi. But they are still going strong and Frankel revealed that Bernon actually helped save her life. Here is what happened and more things to know about what has been going on with Frankel.

The Real Housewives of New York star tweeted that she had a life-threatening emergency on Dec. 16. She tweeted “I have rare fish allergy. Sun,I had soup,itched & was unconscious for 15 mins then to ER & ICU for 2 days w BP of 60/40.I couldn’t talk,see, thought I had a stroke & dying & told if 5 mins later I’d be dead. 911 & EPI saved me.I’ll never not carry an #epipen @newtonwellesley xo.”

She made sure to note that the allergy is to fish and not shellfish, which is unique. Bethenny Frankel thanked the hospital for their work in a later tweet with “That is the best hospital I have ever been to and I am so grateful.”

Although Frankel voiced being thankful to get the care that she got she did admit in a tweet “Not since all the relief work, dennis’ passing & filming a season have I hit the wall. Today was that day. Still cannot move from bed.”

A fan then replied, “Don’t forget you have a new boyfriend too.” The reality star then wrote back “He saved my life.”

Her previous tweet was referring to the death of boyfriend Dennis Shields. He died on Aug. 26, 2018, of apparent prescription overdose in his hotel, according to Us Weekly. They had an off-and-on relationship and a source claimed Shields proposed to Frankel four months before his death.

Frankel has also tweeted about grieving the businessman’s death. She tweeted the day the news of his death was out “It’s hard to breathe & I appreciate you giving me the space & support to try to do so. It’s excruciating-sudden death is no closure & constant ?s & memories. Our relationship is current so it’s painfully raw. Trying to stay healthy & move through it w tears & close friends. Xo.”

She is now dating Paul Bernon, who has a film company called Burn Later. Some of the movies he produced are Drinking BuddiesA Kid Like Jake, and more. He also has a real estate company that is located in Massachusetts so the new couple has been seen in that area lately.

It seems like Bethenny Frankel will be okay and will now carry an EpiPen to be safe in the future. It’s unknown whether Real Housewives of New York Season 11 is still filming, but it’s possible she will talk more about the scary situation next season on the show.
