According to NBC New York, police and medical personnel responded to an emergency call from Trump Tower at around 9 a.m. on Friday morning, and when they arrived, they found Shields to be unconscious and unresponsive.

The section said fines or suspensions could potentially be handed out to players who kneel during the anthem. There were no other actions by either Seattle or Indianapolis players during the performance of anthem.
"I have a daughter, I had a very hard divorce - I'm not legally divorced yet", Frankel added, referring to both her ex-husband Jason Hoppy and the former couple's 8-year-old daughter Bryn. According to Page Six, Shields thought he was overdosing on prescription pills, and asked his assistant to administer Narcan.
The duo started dating in 2016, three years after Bethenny filed for divorce from ex-husband Jason Hoppy. "His spirit lives on in our children".
Frankel addressed their relationship in a May interview with Steve Harvey.
Bethenny recently commented on RHONY that she was taking a break from her relationship from Dennis, but still loved him. 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". 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.
