Jill Zarin Reveals What She Would Say — and Do — If She Ran Into Bethenny Frankel Today

One member of the #RHONY alum's inner circle has already reunited with the entrepreneur.

Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin's fallout was one of the most intense friendship breakups in Real Housewives history. In the years since, the two seem to have moved on from their past drama. 

But of course, we all still can't help but wonder what would happen if these two Real Housewives of New York City ladies came face-to-face all these years later. "I have no idea," Jill said on Wednesday's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen when asked what she would say to Bethenny today. "I think I would say, 'I don't even remember what it was about. I don't even remember what we fought about.'" 

That is so much the case that Jill said she would not only be cordial if she came into contact with Bethenny again but actually be super friendly. "I'd give her a hug and a kiss, absolutely," she said.


In fact, Jill kind of did reunite with Bethenny — vicariously through her daughter, Ally Shapiro, that is. The RHONY mogul and the 24-year-old ran into each other on a plane recently, Jill revealed on WWHL. "Yeah, I met her daughter [Bryn Hoppy]," Ally said from the Clubhouse audience. "It was great. First time in a while." 

Bethenny previously told The Daily Dish that she doesn't "think that much" about Jill these days. Even though we may not see Jill on RHONY every week — with the exception of her brief return earlier this season — she said she still watches the show and has seen a change in Bethenny since they last took a bite out of the Big Apple together. "I don’t see the same person anymore," Jill said on The Daily Dish Podcast earlier this week. "I don’t. But that’s not a bad thing. It’s just a growing thing. You know, she’s a mom now, she wasn’t a mom then. [You have] to grow up fast when you’re a mom. Now you’re responsible for another human being. When she was with me, she was just her. It was all about her. It was just a different time in our lives, the innocent time. Life was easy." 

And yes, Jill also had some opinions on the latest RHONY drama. Watch her weigh in, below.
