Jill Zarin may have been fired from Real Housewives of New York after Season 4, but she is still part of the drama on the sidelines. After her beloved husband Bobby Zarin’s death from cancer in January of 2018, Jill and former friend Bethenny Frankel reunited outside of Bobby’s memorial service while RHONY cameras were rolling.
Since then, Jill found love again with her boyfriend Gary Brody. The couple was even shown attending Luann de Lesseps’ Voodoo Halloween party. Jill seemed relaxed and happy.
Former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin has weathered some monumental changes in the past couple of years. In January of 2018, Jill’s beloved husband, Bobby Zarin, died after a long battle with cancer. Bobby was a fan favorite on the show.
About six months after Bobby’s passing, Jill started dating Gary Brody. The duo bonded over their mutual love of tennis.
Jill Zarin has a complicated history with Real Housewives of New York. She was one of the original Housewives until she was fired after Season 4. Since then, Jill has been on a relentless campaign to grab a full-time New York Housewives apple. So far, no luck.
The RHONY alum even invited the current Housewives to film at her birthday party, but they didn’t want to attend. Poor Jill! That is sad.
Jill Zarin was one of the OG’s on Real Housewives of New York when it debuted in 2008. She appeared with Ramona Singer, Bethenny Frankel, Luann de Lesseps, and Alex McCord. Then Jill was fired after season 4 along with Alex and Kelly Bensimon.
Unlike some former Real Housewives who fade away like Jules Wainstein and Kristen Taekman, Jill has tried to regain her apple ever since. Her role model may be former BFF Bethenny who left and came back. Jill has tried to stay relevant with press interviews and cameo appearances on the show. That included filming at the funeral of husband Bobby Zarin, who died from cancer.
