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.
Jill is keeping a positive attitude about the grim news. She told E! News, “You have to live to live because we want to be here to raise money for cancer research. We want to live our lives to the fullest…We don’t want to miss anything while Bobby’s healthy and strong and we’re just going to fight it.” Our thoughts are with Jill and Bobby as he gears up for another fight.
In other Angel Ball news, tonight was supposed to be Kim Kardashian‘s big return to the public eye, but things took a turn this afternoon. Kim was seen hopping a private plane this morning to head to NYC, but from what we see in the photos, she never made it to the gala.
It might have something to do with Kanye West‘s meltdown last night at his concert. He reportedly only played a few songs and then proceeded to rant about Beyonce and Jay-Z and the media and then cut the concert short and left. TMZ reports that Kanye was hospitalized this afternoon – unwillingly. They claim he’s exhausted and was suffering from sleep deprivation. It hasn’t been confirmed yet that Kim rushed home, but I’m assuming this hospitalization is why she didn’t show up at the gala (unless she just avoided all cameras..).
Although Kim wasn’t seen, her sisters and mom were at the event. Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner were joined by Corey Gamble. Kourtney wore an interesting dress that appeared to be missing a chunk of material.
Also spotted at the event was RHONY star Dorinda Medley. Check out the gallery below!
