When Bethenny Frankel sat down with Andy Cohen during the Real Housewives of New York 100th episode special last month, she recounted the demise of her friendship with show alum, Jill Zarin. While Jill didn't appear on the special, she did sit down with Andy on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday (October 8) to share her opinion of Bethenny's version of the events.
"Well, I didn't believe her when she said 'I wasn't angry.' I mean, she sounded angry. I feel really bad. I mean, if she really thought that that's what I was up to, I really wasn't up to that," Jill said. "It was so long ago, it's hard to remember how I felt, but I'll tell you, and I want to say this: I miss her, and I want to make amends with her. I do. I mean, we tried two years ago, and listen — she's way moved on, I've way moved on, but there's something about us together that was really incredible, and I would like to make up with her."
In the years since their falling out, both women left the show with Bethenny returning for the most recent Season 7. So, did Jill tune in? "Of course, I've watched," she explained, noting that her full opinion of Bethenny's return is something better served over dinner. "What I really think is that she needed a friend like me — not on the show. Not on the show. In real life, I think she really needed a friend like me. When we were good, we were really good together and I loved her. I loved her like a sister. Like, I really loved her."
