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.”
