Bethenny Frankel vs. Jill Zarin — RHONY
Bethenny and Jill’s friendship took a turn when The Real Housewives of New York City returned for season 3 in 2010. Bethenny accused Jill of being jealous of her newfound success, while Jill claimed Bethenny wasn’t there for her during her husband Bobby Zarin’s cancer scare. The two women refused to make up with one another at different points over the course of the season, before the Skinnygirl creator exited the series ahead of season 4.
Where They Stand Today: Years later, it was Bobby who brought the former best friends together again. After he lost his battle to cancer in January 2018, Bethenny attended the funeral and had a heartfelt moment with Jill outside of the service, which aired on season 9 of the Bravo show. She later revealed during the season 9 reunion that she introduced her daughter, Bryn, to Jill and the women have been in touch.Back to top
