Jill Zarin’s Husband Bobby Hospitalized; Has Extremely Rare Cancer

Former RHONY star Jill Zarin’s husband Bobby has been hospitalized since Friday due to his battle with cancer, according to a new report.

Jill spoke out about how Bobby is doing. “It’s been a difficult year since his brain tumor diagnosis but ironically that’s not even the issue,” Jill explained to E! News. “His papillary thyroid cancer has morphed into something called anaplastic thyroid cancer. It’s very, very rare.”

She added, “Right now Bobby’s okay, he’s stable. Our friends have been unbelievable in rallying around us.”

Our thoughts and prayers go out to both Jill and Bobby.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Now this is something to be concerned about, not Shannon’s weight, or Tamara’s choice to constantly go under the knife. The latter two can diet & stop re-doing what God gave. But Bobby? That’s beyond sad & he sure can use every prayer he can get.

    Oh no! He’s one of the House Husbands I’ve ALWAYS liked. I can say that the times I’ve purchased at Zarin’s for work projects (even years before Bravo ever created the Housewives phenomenon) it’s always a pleasant shopping experience: his people in the shop are tip top friendly, fabric experts who very knowledgable on all things textiles. I always say the atmosphere of a business environment is reflected from the leadership at the top. Bobby seems like a swell guy. Prayers lifted up for him.

    So sorry to hear this. I will pray for his healing. Sending love and prayers.


    Many people don’t like Jill but there is one thing no one can doubt that she truly loves Bobby. He is her rock and now she needs to be his rock. To be there through his long journey in fighting this terrible, terrible disease, to give him the will to fight and support him through thick and thin. Good luck Bobby saying a prayer for you
