Jill Zarin Discusses What It Meant Having Bethenny Frankel At Her Husband’s Funeral – The Real Housewives
Jill Zarin is one of the OG stars of The Real Housewives of New Jersey! She is now adjusting after sadly losing her husband, Bobby Zarin, to cancer in January. Many of the Real Housewives attended the funeral and paid their respects to Jill. Once upon a time, Jill and Bethenny Frankel were the best of friends. They were strong allies. Then things went sour and they had a big fallout. However; it did mean a lot to Jill that Bethenny attended the funeral.
On a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, Jill opened up about that chaotic time, “I really, honestly I don’t remember much. There was a lot going on.” She was glad to have the RHONY ladies show their support to her. When asked about what it was like having Bethenny at the funeral, she explained, “We spoke for a few minutes though, and it was really nice that she came.” Jill added, “It was really nice that you came too, Dorinda. A lot of the girls came, it was great.”
Bethenny attended the funeral and also posted a lot of tweets about Bobby in the aftermath of his death. She tweeted, “Today is a sad day with a silver lining. I laughed. I cried. I saw old faces & watched a family come together surrounding a loss.” The death brough up a lot of emotions for her, as she was really close to Jill and Bobby. She stayed with them in the Hamptons even. Bethenny shared on social media after the tragedy, “I have a dream’ that Bobby’s death makes us realize what is important & treat each day as our last.”
I’m glad that Jill and Bethenny have made peace. It was definitely positive and a good thing that Bethenny went to the funeral. I think that these two are going to slowly work towards having a friendship again. That’s what I’m hoping for! I’d love to have Jill finally back on RHONY full-time. We’ll have to stay tuned for the appearance she will make this season!
