Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin reunite midair 12 years after explosive fall-out on Real Housewives of New York City: ‘Pleasant flight, no turbulence’
Bethenny Frankel and her former Real Housewives of New York City costar Jill Zarin had an unexpected run-in while boarding the same flight.
Over a decade after their explosive fall-out was chronicled on season three of their Bravo series in 2010, any past tension between reality stars seemed to be just water under the bridge.
‘So this girl walks onto a plane…,’ the Skinnygirl founder, 51, captioned a selfie of them in their seats as they both smiled at the camera.

She also included the hashtags ‘#mentionitall’ and ‘#getahobby’, which are two of Frankel’s most quoted lines during her eight seasons as a housewife.
While feeling like Zarin was obsessing over every part of her life, Frankel famously told the entrepreneur, 58, to get a hobby.
Zarin, who rocked a structured white blazer with gold buttons and ripped jeans, was seated a row behind the philanthropist.

Frankel and Jill reconciled following the death of her beloved husband Bobby Zarin in 2018.
She attended Bobby’s funeral and even brought her daughter Bryn, who Frankel asked to give Jill a hug, despite going six years without speaking.
The gesture was extremely well received by Jill, who reminded Frankel just how much Bobby loved her.
The pair, alongside Ramona Singer, Lu-Ann DeLesseps and Alex McCord, starred on the first season of Real Housewives of New York, which aired on March 4, 2008
Years prior, Zarin expressed wanting to make amends to the star, who once called her a cunning b****’, during an appearance on Watch What Happens: Live.
‘There was something about us together that was really incredible and I would like to make up to her,’ she insisted.
Zarin continued: ‘What I really think is she needed a real friend like me. In real life.’
‘When we were good we were really, really good together, and I loved her,’ Zarin stressed even after their falling-out. ‘I loved her like a sister, I really loved her.’
‘When we were good we were really, really good together, and I loved her,’ she stressed. ‘I loved her like a sister, I really loved her.’
Of Bethenny’s claims that Jill had wanted her to do everything with her, Zarin was happy to admit she was right – but only because she really thought they were that close.
‘I thought I was in a girl band – she wanted to be in a solo,’ she explained. ‘She said she didn’t want to take me along, but I felt we were in a girl band.’
