‘Real Housewives of New York City’: Jill Zarin Was ‘Used’ By Bethenny Frankel
The former stars of the ‘Real Housewives of New York City’ have not been on good terms for some time. And for Jill, this was on the basis of how Bethenny had conducted herself during the course of Jill’s late husband Bobby Zarin’s funeral in 2018.
Bethenny had allegedly made the decision to attend the funeral with cameras. While she may have had her reasons for doing so, perhaps to document and create a memory for Jill, the very fact of the matter is that this did not go down very well.
In an interview with Page Six, Jill said: “She came with cameras, which I didn’t know were going to be there, so that changed it for me. Housewives came without cameras to pay their respects: Dorinda, Luann, Ramona, all came [with] no makeup, no hair, you know, not glammed out.”
Nevertheless, Jill did not call out Bethenny at the time. And this was understandable for the following reasons. First of all, there was much more importance on making sure that Bobby had a good send off, as well as allowing people to pay their respects.
Secondly, if Jill did happen to say something, then the last thing people would want to see is a commotion being caused at a funeral. But now that she has had some time to think about it, Jill was adamant that Bethenny was doing a publicity stunt.
She added: “I think that’s what it [publicity] was. “She came to my house to talk without cameras and I really thought that was authentic. I didn’t know that after she left my house, she was filming with the girls…I did feel a bit used.”
The best thing that the pair can do is move on and try to put this behind them. If that means that they no longer cross each other’s path, then so be it. So there you have it folks. What did you think about all of this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
