Bethenny Frankel Reaches Out to Jill and Bobby Zarin

Bethenny Frankel has reached out to her former BFF Jill Zarin, while Jill’s husband Bobby is battling cancer.

Patti Stanger was a guest on Heather McDonald’s Juicy Scoop podcast, and revealed that the RHONY star sent “a basket of goodies” to Bobby Zarin.

“Bobby’s dying,” Patti explained. “He doesn’t have a lot of time. This is not something to play around with. Network antics aside, me and Andy [Cohen] have been texting and e-mailing, and this last week, Bethenny did send a basket of goodies to Bobby.”

“I’m sick of the feud,” she added of Jill and Bethenny’s relationship. “I hope it ends.”

“At the end of the day, if you get sick – like Bobby – you need support and we can all get sick,” she said.

Bobby, 71, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in June 2009, and the cancer spread to his lungs in 2013. More recently, Jill, 53, revealed that “his cancer took an unexpected turn” earlier this summer.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jill and Bobby.

  1. Patti Stanger being offensive as she usually is. I don’t know if Bobby is dying or not, because Jill knows it isn’t the public’s business to know necessarily, so I find it very insensitive to just come out and say that. Don’t make that sort of blatant announcement, Jill herself has not.

  2. So sad for Bobby & Jill. I hate cancer. Lost so many precious ones to it. I do pray for healing in their relationship with Bethenny. Bobby loved her very much. Its time to make peace. Its long overdue.

  3. BF is missing a sensitivity chip except where she (Ms Narcissist) is concerned! Everything she does is calculated to bring attention ” to her”! Her goal is to “appear” like she gives a “crap” about somebody else! She has no genuine concern for either Jill OR Bobby Zarin!

    1. I don’t know her personally as you must, but I see that she is one thing always, honest. One of the many things I admire about her that is completely different than any other NY HW is that she apologizes immediately when she sticks her foot in mouth. When seeing the season again I noticed specifically that that happened every time she knew she was wrong. Ramona & Sonja, God Almighty, can’t admit they are wrong EVER. Ramona, for example, after trying to make Bethenny look bad in the first episode, talked to every effin friend she had about it. If she knew she was right, she wouldn’t have had to get the OK from every other person. Saying to what must have been dozens of her so called friends, “can’t I say ANYTHING to a friend?” NO, NO, NO ,NO. YOU can not say whatever you damn well want you little whore. The article Bethenny’s psycho ex put in the paper was a clip from TWENTY FIVE years ago. Oh, yeah, that is horrible, she bared her boobs. I think Bryn will survive. Then, months later, the most she can come up with is “it doesn’t matter if what I said was right or wrong, ( WRONG, WRONG, WRONG) I hurt her. ”
      Every single time B shoots her mouth off, as they ALL do, the very next chance she gets she says she was wrong to whoever it was she spike badly to. We can’t all be perfect, or expected to be. Bethenny and Jill were very close for a few years, and Bobby too. It was Jill that turned into a dishonorable person. Every single HW told a story of Jill trying to sabotage Bethenny and her spin-off.
      It really is weird when I break down exactly what is said and done, and B takes the shit for everything because she made it. So sad. I am as sure about her genuine feelings of sadness and the sincerity of her reaching out as I am that her upbringing is something very, very few people get past. Most people raised like her are under a bridge with a needle in there arm, dead or in prison.

      1. I’m just curious (because I’m too lazy to amazon ’cause eyes are tired from editing) did Bethenny ever write an autobiography? After reading your sentence I’m completely fascinated to learn more about her childhood.

  4. All I’m saying is that that interview should really be heard in its entirety. It is BEYOND and shares a completely new side of Bethenny that… well, she’s a very strategic woman, that’s all I’ll say…
