Bobby Zarin Cancer

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.”

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.”

Jill Zarin shared some sad news tonight at the 2016 Angel Ball in NYC: Bobby Zarin‘s cancer has returned and has now spread to his brain.

The former Real Housewives of New York star shared at the Angel Ball 2016 for Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation For Cancer Research, “He’s getting the best of care. We like to share this story because we like to help everybody. We have a great team…He had thyroid cancer that had spread to the lungs but it’s all going to be good.”  Bobby was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2009 and lung cancer in 2015.
