Bobby Zarin has taken a turn for the worst as he continues to lose his battle with cancer and as expected his wife Jill Zarin is refusing to leave his side.

“Jill put on a brave face at Bloomingdale’s Makeup Date 2017 event,” an insider reveals. “Jill was holding back tears and looked worried and scared.”

“I asked her how Bobby was doing and she said he was back in the hospital and she didn’t want to leave his side,” the insider added. “Jill has been by Bobby’s side 24/7 since his cancer took a turn for the worse and she said it was hard to leave for the 45-minute appearance, but Bobby insisted that she go.”

Despite his downward spiral, Bobby is still Bobby and urged Jill to attend the Bloomingdale’s event.

“She said Bobby encouraged her to step away and honor her commitment to Bloomingdale’s, but it was very hard for her,” the insider noted. “She said the past few weeks have been a roller coaster of good days and bad days and that the family is taking things day by day.”

However, Jill quickly rushed back to Bobby’s side after leaving the event.

“Jill said that she was going back to the hospital [after the event] and she seemed very worried about Bobby,” the insider said. “She thanked the audience for their love, support, and prayers during this difficult time.”

While Jill continues to put on a brave face, sources say she’s hoping for a miracle to save her ailing husband.

“Bobby is everything to Jill, and she prays every day for a miracle,” the insider concluded.

Thankfully, the Real Housewives of New York couple are surrounded by friends and family they can lean on including several of Jill’s former RHONY co-stars including Luann de Lesseps and Ramona Singer.

My heart is breaking for Jill. It must be so difficult to see Bobby suffering. The entire AllAboutTRH Team sends our love to Jill and Bobby. Hopefully, a miracle can happen and save Bobby’s life. xo

Are you surprised Jill left Bobby’s side? Do you think the RHONY cast will continue to support Jill during this difficult time?

  • my prayers are with the Zaren family….this is such a difficult time for them, hell on earth, lost both my parents to cancer, my sister and brother to heart disease….life is a fog, your biggest fear is not being there when they need you the most, slept in chairs for many days with each, i wanted them to know they were never there alone…question every medicine that comes into to the room, remind the the nurse to wash her hands before touching them, were gloves, do not bring outside germs into the room

  • Dear Lara, if you would like to be a “writer/blogger” please learn proper grammar/English. A turn for the worse. Not a turn for the worst. The first sentence is just complete run on with absolutely no punctuation. Geez Louise. Did you get paid for this??!!!

  • Prayers for Jill and Bobby sad when anyone suffers..That is the main reason people aren ‘t ever gonna forgive Crooks or Icky.

  • The title says jill won’t leave bobby’s side then the article said she left his side because of her commitment to Bloomingdale’s. This is what drives me nuts about that woman

  • THIS is very sad…. Bawby has always been a great guy!!! He is probably one of the few hw “characters” who never created a scandal, trouble or negativity. My thoughts are of both Bawby & Jill.

  • He looks like he’s in his last days. So sorry to see that. I hope that Jill and family can remain strong.

  • Bobby – so sad this is happening, I feel so bad for both of them, the fear and the tears. Sending prayers to the Zarin famly. Cancer sux

  • Not a fan of Jill but I did adore Bobby I thought he was always a gentlemen. Alot of these other husband’s could learn alot from him. It’s obvious he adores Jill I feel very bad for them.

  • I am so sorry for Jill and Bobby. Love both of them. I doubt she cares who in the franchise supports her because Jill has real friends not just fake tv friends.
