It is an emotional roller coaster for this real housewife.
Bethenny Frankel posted a dreamy and romantic selfie with her new beau, film producer Paul Bernon, on Friday, a day after her tearing appearance at the RHONY reunion, in which she discussed how she misses her late on / off friend Dennis Shields.
In the photo, Frankel and Bernon are both smiling and wearing sunglasses for a rocky beach, and Bethenny's head is tilted to her new husband.

She tagged both the 41-year-old Bernon's account and that of the musician Lauv, and subtitled the sweet photo with one of his lyrics and titles: & # 39; I find myself better when I'm with you & # 39;
A day earlier, Frankel, 48, wiped the tears away while discussing Dennis Shields, an occasional boyfriend, during the first part of the RHONY reunion at Bravo.
The creator of the Skinnygirl lifestyle brand was asked early during the reunion of season 11 about Dennis, who died of a suspected overdose in August last year in his apartment in Trump Tower in New York City at the age of 51.
Reunion host Andy Cohen, 51, noted that Dennis Bethenny had accompanied to the last several reunions of The Real Housewives of New York City.

& # 39; He loved minutiae, & # 39; said Bethenny. & # 39; He is always in my mind. He is very losing & # 39 ;.
She remembered some of his favorite statements, and Luann de Lesseps, 52, told Bethenny that he absolutely & # 39; worshiped you & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I know. I know. I miss that, & Bethenny said while her voice burst with emotion.
Later she opened up about their relationship after watching videos of himself who had survived his death during season 11.

Bethenny wiped away tears after the assembly when Andy asked how she was doing almost a year after Dennis died.
& # 39; I'm fine. I actually think I'm fine. It comes in waves, there are delayed responses. I really did, "Bethenny said.
Bethenny said she still can't believe he's gone.
Going further: after watching videos of herself who had gone through his death during season 11, the reality star said that she & & # 39; did well & & # 39; and & # 39; has renounced & # 39;
& # 39; I loved him very much, and I don't know if I could be where I am today if he were still here, & # 39; she said.
She also acknowledged that they had been broken up at the time of his death.
& # 39; So we had broken many times. He was always in my life, & said Bethenny, adding that Dennis would promise to change to come back into her life.

& # 39; Frankly, when you are older, you don't know if you're going to get your big fairy tale, & # 39; she explained.
& # 39; Because I had this security presence in Dennis, where if it was Thanksgiving and I would be alone, I could always be with him, I didn't give myself what I deserved in a relationship, & # 39; she added.
Bethenny also revealed that she & # 39; only & # 39; felt in their relationship.

& # 39; Dennis could not be present. We would be together and so strong and very in love, and then he would disappear, & Bethenny said.
She said that Dennis promised to make Mother's Day special for her and her nine-year-old daughter Bryn.
& # 39; I ended up only for Mother's Day because he went to sleep and was in bed all day, & # 39; said Bethenny.
& # 39; I was always alone. It was even worse because I would say to him: & # 39; I'd rather be alone than in a relationship, I feel alone & # 39; & # 39 ;, Bethenny said.

Bethenny was asked by a viewer if she was engaged to Dennis when he died and she replied that she did not & # 39; really get engaged & # 39; found.
Dennis suggested and Bethenny said she accepted the ring, but with a & # 39; let & # 39; s see & # 39; look.
Bethenny has since gone out with project developer and film producer Bernon.
New friend: Bethenny dates from project developer and film producer Paul Bernon, 41.
She said they'll stay together, but he probably won't be on the show soon.
& # 39; He is a very private, conservative, reserved person. … He is calm and balanced, and this is not for him, & said Bethenny.
Bethenny conceived Dennis during the 11 season and considered selling her Skinnygirl company, but revealed during the reunion that she had not sold it.
& # 39; I had several offers, and I got very nervous at the last minute because it didn't really reach its full potential, so I let go of some very high salary people and outsourced more. So I don't like managing so many people. I don't want to perform surgery, & she said.
Good question: Andy wondered if they would see Bethenny & # 39; s new friend Paul on the show, but she said he & # 39; very private & # 39; used to be
The reunion also included Luann and Dorinda Medley, 54, and made up after a season-long argument that threatened their long friendship.
Andy noted that Luann missed the reunion last season because she was in the rehab clinic and had never had the chance to solve exciting problems with Dorinda.
& # 39; To be honest, I don't feel like you have more substance & # 39 ;, Dorinda told Luann.

Dorinda cried while telling Luann that at some point she decided she couldn't do anything good in her mind.
She accused Luann of her being a & # 39; beast & # 39; even after she had given her a prayer card from her first communion.
& # 39; You have broken my heart, & # 39; said Dorinda.
Dorinda remained hurt that Luann did not invite her boyfriend John Mahdessian to her cabaret show.

Tinsley Mortimer, 43, admitted to being involved in the cabaret show, but Dorinda denied she broke Luann during her show with her & # 39; Jovani & # 39; outbursts.
Luann later said that she was going through a tough time last season and admitted that she & # 39; cold & # 39; had been in the direction of Dorinda.
She then walked over to give Dorinda a hug.
Big hug: Luann admitted that in the past season she & # 39; cold & # 39; had been to Dorinda and walked over to her and embraced her
& # 39; I hate the way you look at me. You look so angry, & she said while embracing.
& # 39; I am not. I am confused. I am not angry. I'm confused because I don't … the person I know for 13 years. We used to laugh at us, Dorinda said. & # 39; We were so close & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I know. I miss that too. I really do it, & said Luann.
The Really Housewives Of Reunion in New York will take place at Bravo next week.
