Real Housewives of New York

Luann de Lesseps

Luann de Lesseps is a free woman once more! OK, well, kinda. She’s home from rehab at least. After getting arrested in December for drunken and disorderly behavior, Luann checked herself into a 21-day treatment program for alcohol.

Luann celebrated her first day home on social media updating the masses on her progress and expressing her gratitude. “It’s good to be home. I’m doing great. Spending time with friends and family. Thanking everyone for your continued good wishes and support,” she tweeted. 

Jill Zarin and Bobby Zarin

Unfortunately Bobby Zarin lost his longtime battle with cancer. Everyone on Real Housewives of New York City and the fans at home have always had a great love and respect for Bobby. His wife, ex-RHONY star Jill Zarin has received some support from her fellow Real Housewives and she has been very open about that in the media.

Bravo even filmed the New York City Housewives coming together for Bobby’s memorial. Current Real Housewives of New York cast members Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, and Dorinda Medley (along with her boyfriend John Mahdessian) attended the memorial. RHONY alum Kelly Bensimon and Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub were there as well to pay their respects to Bobby and support Jill.

It’s tough for the reality TV super fans to keep up with all of their favorite shows, let alone all of the cast members on Instagram. Fortunately for you, I did all of the social media lurking for this week’s Instagram Roundup.

Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Tom Sandoval, and Tom Schwartz enjoyed a boys weekend away at Big Bear. There’s still no word on who’s the “number one guy in this group,” but it looks like they all had a good time, which is something Jax could really use these days following the recent death of his father Ronald Cauchi.

Bethenny Frankel And Jill Zarin Reconcile At Bobby Zarin’s Memorial Service; Bravo Cameras Filmed Moment For RHONY

A new day has dawned for The Real Housewives Of New York. Long time enemies Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin have put their differences aside to make amends, although it took a tragic circumstance to bring them back together. After the sad passing of Jill’s husband, Bobby Zarin, last week, Bethenny chartered a plane from Aspen to be by her former friend’s side.

Some question whether this surprising move was “just for the cameras,” but Jill has made it clear that she wanted Bravo to film at Bobby’s memorial, both to highlight her connection to former RHONY cast mates and because Bobby became known to many of us through his multiple seasons on the show. Jill said, “This was all about memorializing Bobby — [there was] no drama. It’s very sad for all. He was an important part of the show and a great friend to many who appeared on it.”

Jill Zarin Shares Touching Tribute To Bobby Ahead of His Funeral

Over the weekend, former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin lost her husband Bobby Zarin after a long battle with cancer. Bobby will be laid to rest tomorrow and Jill is sharing a touching tribute her husband of 18 years. She promises to continue raising money and awareness in his name.

Jill took to Instagram tonight to share, “Rest In Peace my love. Words can not express the hole in my heart. Bobby taught me what true and deep love is. Thank you my love for sharing your life with me.. for raising Allyson as if she was your own, being an amazing father and grandfather and teaching me how to be a better person.”

Despite Jill Zarin‘s optimism, Bobby Zarin lost his battle with brain cancer over the weekend.

Jill confirmed the news with a statement on her website: ““With the heaviest of hearts, we are devastated to share the news that our beloved Bobby Zarin passed away peacefully today surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer. There are no words to describe how heartbroken we are. Thank you, everyone, for all your love and support during this difficult time.”

There has been a lot going on with all of your favorite (and least favorite) reality stars this week, which means that Instagram was full of new photos. Jax Taylor got support from his Vanderpump Rules costars (past and present love interests) Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Brittany Cartwright in Michigan at a “Celebration of Life” event to honor his father who recently passed away. Meanwhile Scheana Marie cozied up to (yet another) one of Brandi Glanville’s exes- Gerard Butler- and posed for a selfie with him, of course. She even claims that he was the one who insisted on taking the photo.

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice celebrated her oldest daughter Gia Giudice’s birthday with the rest of her family. Gia’s aunt Melissa Gorga also shared a photo with a sweet caption in honor of the big day. Margaret Josephs and her man Joe Benigno (the THIRD RHONJ husband named Joe) enjoyed a date night with friends. RHONJ alum Dina Manzo shared a selfie with her daughter Lexi.
