Bethenny Frankel and former best friend Jill Zarin are no longer friends, according to a new video interview. The friends and what they have gone through was documented on the past season of The Real Housewives of New York City. While Zarin has now repeatedly apologized to her friend for what she says was holding a grudge, Frankel says that she is not in her life.
According to Frankel’s interview with People, she says:
“Jill Zarin is not in my life, I wish her the best. I think that the show started, the cameras went up and Jill decided to use her beef as a platform to start the show.
I was completely blindsided, and had no idea that I was going to live this entire dispute out on national television. Jill’s grand plan backfired on her, and I think that has been the greatest life lesson ever.
I think that there are aspects to her that are entertaining, and I really did enjoy, and I hope she is great. I am just at a really great place. My life is so happy and pure, and I really just…I don’t want to go backwards.”

For anyone who has lost a friend after being such good friends, it must have been hard to not only go through that, but to also have millions of people tuning in each week to see it all unravel. Now that Frankel has had a child, her priorities are obviously to focus on her newborn daughter, and her husband.
If you watched part three of The Real Housewives of New York City last night, then you know that Frankel is not completely certain that she will be returning to the show again. It was not a definite no, but it wasn’t a definite yes either.
If anything is certain, this show can be unpredictable. Do you think that Frankel and Zarin will ever be close friends like they were before?
Do you think Frankel should return to the show? If not, why not?
