RHONY: Are Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin Still Feuding?

Originally posted 03/31/2015 06:30PM

With just a week left until Bethenny Frankel returns to The Real Housewives of New York City, the faces may have changed, but fans are bound to wonder whether the feuds – on and off camera – remain the same.

Frankel's former RHONY costar Jill Zarin took to the radio waves last week to set the record straight about her relationship with Frankel, 44, saying that she has no hard feelings toward her old pal.

"There is no feud between myself and Bethenny or myself and anybody that I know of unless they come forth and tell me there's a feud," Zarin – who left RHONY in 2011 – told her longtime friend, crisis manager Wendy Feldman, on the March 25 debut of her new Dash Radio talk show The Hollywood Fixer (airing Wednesdays, 1-3 p.m. PT).

When Zarin, 51, and her husband, Bobby, ran into Frankel last summer, Zarin said the three of them "were so civil. She had a private conversation with [my daughter] Ally. She danced with Bobby."

Bethenny Frankel's Talk Show Axed: What Should She Do Next?

Originally posted 02/15/2014 10:20AM

Bethenny Frankel has played her hand well ... just about as well as anyone who found fame with a reality show called The Real Housewives of New York City could.

No, she played it better – she has been disciplined and smart. Look at IMDb.com: Bethenny has 41 credits as herself. Jill Zarin has only 25.

And, yes, LuAnn de Lesseps acted on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and released a single called "Chic, C'est La Vie." However, the ultimate reality star is she who builds the strongest career for herself as herself.

Jill Zarin Confronts Andy Cohen About Getting Fired from Real Housewives

Originally posted 10/16/2012 12:05PM



Monday night's episode of Watch What Happens Live took a turn for the awkward when host Andy Cohen sat down with former Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin to talk about her dismissal from the show.

The first season of the show without Zarin and former cast mates Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon wrapped on Monday, but Zarin did not want to let season 5 end without getting an answer to her uncomfortable question: Why was she fired?

Cohen claimed that the show needed a fresh cast, especially in light of the explosive season 4 reunion featuring the original Housewives.

"We were looking to shake the show up," Cohen told Zarin. "The last reunion, I think you would agree, was incredibly toxic for everyone involved."
