Bethenny has paid tribute to her late on-again, off-again boyfriend on several occasions, including the one-year anniversary of his passing in 2019. “One year ago today, I woke up to a beautiful sunny day with @biggysmallz by the pool, and my world crumbled and turned upside down in an instant,” she began an emotional post on Instagram, alongside a photo of Dennis sitting with their two dogs. “A man Dennis, who I loved and respected, who was in my life for 30 years unexpectedly passed away.”
The tragedy, Bethenny added, has made her a “different person” and put her in a “different emotional place.”
“The wounds have begun to heal,” she said, “but the scar will remain on my heart forever.”
E! News has reached out to reps for Bethenny and Erika for comment and has not heard back.
