Jill Zarin Slams Bethenny, Reveals Why She Declined Talk Show Appearance


It’s no secret that former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin loves the spotlight, and after reports she turned down Bethenny Frankel’s offer to appear on her daytime talk show, Jill is speaking out about why she declined the invitation. “I flat out said ‘no’ when they asked me to go on her show,” Jill tells Life & Style Magazine. “Does she think I’m just going to show up and she’s going to come out and do her fake show and then run away?”

Jill reveals it wasn’t Bethenny who called to invite her to come on the show, and that was a big part of her decision not to appear. “She couldn’t pick up the phone and call me herself. I was shocked. She should’ve called,” Jill says. “I’m in a neutral zone with Bethenny; we’ve communicated. I was hurt that she didn’t call me because I did e-mail and congratulate her on the show, so it wasn’t like we hadn’t spoken.”

Jill continues, “I was hoping she was looking for resolution and not to use me for ratings. I was looking for an honest and real conversation. I felt I deserved that because we were such good friends.”
