During the debut and earlier seasons of The Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin were the best of friends. They were pretty much inseparable and were always allies. Then they hit some bumps in the road and the timing was always off when they wanted to reconcile and apologize. Now on the current season of RHONY right now, Bethenny and her new RHONY BFF, Carole Radziwill, are having a shift. However; Bethenny is back in contact on a regular basis with her former BFF – Jill Zarin.
So have they still really been keeping in touch? “We have, and it’s nice,” Bethenny revealed on a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. The two got back in contact when Bethenny showed her support for Jill at the funeral of Jill’s late husband – Bobby Zarin. The two ladies had things put into perspective, and it mended their relationship big time. Bethenny explained, “I mean, she’ll text me, and we have a nice sort of interaction. It’s clean, which is what I wanted it to be.”
It’s not just Bethenny that Jill is keeping in touch with from RHONY – she also got closer to Ramona Singer again. Plus, she’s always been close with the Countess – LuAnn De Lesseps. As far as the original cast goes, these Bravo beauties are all getting along great these days!
I’m genuinely happy to see that these two are keeping in touch. I liked their friendship during the earlier seasons of RHONY. It was a bummer when they couldn’t make up for a long time. I truly like both Bethenny and Jill. I hope we start seeing more of them together on the show. Time heals all wounds and I think that they are on the right track back to a solid friendship. Right now they are both at peace – which is exactly what they both need!
