Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel were the Lucy and Ethel of the Real Housewives of New York for the first two seasons but then their friendship quickly dissolved just like that.
Now it has been seven years since Jill and Bethenny were BFF’s and their friendship is just a fond memory to fans.
We still can’t help but wonder what would happen if the two former friends ran into each other now.
Jill tackled this question during a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen; honestly, admitting that she doesn’t know how she would act if she saw Bethenny again.
“I have no idea,” Jill said. “I think I would say, ‘I don’t even remember what it was about. I don’t even remember what we fought about.'”
Jill admitted she would not only be cordial towards Bethenny but super friendly.
“I’d give her a hug and a kiss, absolutely,” she said.
In fact, Jill was able to reunite with Bethenny vicariously through her daughter Ally. Jill explains that Bethenny and Ally recently ran into each other on a flight.
“Yeah, I met her daughter [Bryn Hoppy],” Ally said from the Clubhouse audience. “It was great. First time in a while.”
Bethenny previously admitted that she doesn’t think about Jill much these days.
However, Jill watches RHONY every week and can see the change in Bethenny since season one.
“I don’t see the same person anymore,” Jill told The Daily Dish Podcast. “I don’t. But that’s not a bad thing. It’s just a growing thing. You know, she’s a mom now, she wasn’t a mom then. [You have] to grow up fast when you’re a mom. Now you’re responsible for another human being. When she was with me, she was just her. It was all about her. It was just a different time in our lives, the innocent time. Life was easy.”
I wish Jill and B would just reconcile and be friends again. It’s time ladies. Andy, let’s bring Jill back for season 10 and shake things up.
