After the January 13 passing of Jill Zarin's beloved husband Bobby, The Real Housewives of New York City alum's fellow Housewives have showered her with support. Jill shared with E! News that she's experienced "overwhelming love" from coast-to-coast 'Wives, including everyone from fellow New Yorker Ramona Singer and The Real Housewives of Orange County's Vicki Gunvalson

"Ramona has been incredible," Jill told E! "She texts me, she e-mails me, she showed up at the hospital early on." Jill added that she's received flowers from Vicki and that The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Melissa Gorga sent her an email.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Cynthia Bailey wanted to attend Bobby's January 15 funeral, Jill said, and Andy Cohen saluted her late husband by giving him the "Mazel of the Week" on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.  

At Bobby's packed funeral, guests included current RHONY ladies and alums, such as Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, Bethenny Frankel, Aviva Drescher, and Kelly Killoren BensimonRHONJ's Danielle Staub also came to pay her respects. 

"It was very surreal to walk in and have all these people around me," Jill said. "People who I haven't seen in 20 years showed up. People flew in from as far as Ghana, Florida, California, Chicago, all over the place. They all dropped what they were doing and they came."

Bethenny is said to have sent Skinnygirl wine for the shiva held after the funeral and Andy sent a platter of snacks from New York's Barney Greengrass. 


Other Zarin family friends who paid their respects include Wendy Williams, who saluted Bobby on her talk show earlier this week, and Kris Jenner, who sent a floral arrangement to Jill.
