It seems every day there is a new story floating around about whether or not former housewives Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin are returning to the Real Housewives of New York. The latest story? Bethenny is reportedly refusing to rejoin the cast if Jill returns to the show.
An insider told Radar Online that Bethenny won’t sign a contract to rejoin the show if Bravo execs offer Jill a contract as well.
“Bethenny hasn’t signed a deal with Bravo or the production company for Real Housewives of New York because she is refusing to come back if arch-enemy Jill Zarin returns,” an insider said. “For Bethenny to return to the show, she wants to move forward. Having Jill come back would just create more false drama in an attempt to recreate the past. It’s not that Bethenny has any hatred towards Jill, it’s simply she has moved on from all of that. In fact, Bethenny has run in to Jill and her husband, Bobby , recently and the two have exchanged pleasantries.”
I can’t really say I’m surprised. Bethenny has always been a bit of a diva and considering her fallout with Jill on past seasons I can’t really blame her for being hesitant to reappear on the show with Jill.
