Jill Zarin Wants To Get Back On The Real Housewives Of New York, But Bravo Isn’t Biting

Jill Zarin has been mourning the passing of her beloved husband, Bobby Zarin, after losing him to cancer last month. But the former Real Housewives Of New York cast member seems to have an ulterior motive when it comes to staying in the media spotlight: She wants to get back on the show, and she wants it badly.

A source close to Jill reports that she is upset about Bravo featuring her on the series, but not offering her a contract. “Jill’s grown tired of making cameo appearances on the show without being offered an actual job,” according to mysterious “sources.”

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.

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.”
