Bethenny Frankel’s interior designer has been found dead inside her Upper East Side apartment, more than a week after she was last seen.

The body of Brooke Gomez, 49, was discovered in what has been described as an advanced state of decomposition at around 8 p.m. Sunday in her apartment near East 94th Street and Madison Avenue.

Gomez’s death has not been deemed suspicious by the police, sources familiar with the case told The Post.

A cause of death has not been released.

Her final Instagram post, dated Oct. 23, featured a poignant quote that read: “There’s a future version of you that is so proud you didn’t give up.”

Gomez was best known for Bravo TV’s second season of “Bethenny Ever After” in 2013 when she revamped Frankel’s $5 million Tribeca loft.

Frankel has not yet commented on her designer’s death.
