Where Does Brandi Glanville Stand With Kenya Moore?

Jill Zarin’s falling-out with Bethenny Frankel may be one of the more unforgettable friendship arcs in the history of The Real Housewives of New York City. The onetime friends’ relationship deteriorated in Season 3 of RHONY, and there is one moment from that time that Jill regrets today.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Peacock and catch up on the Bravo app

When Jill appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Tuesday, June 28, along with her The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club castmate Brandi Glanville, she opened up about that time in her life.

“Yes, I do [have a regret]. Walking out of Ramona [Singer’s] apartment that day. Had I stayed and worked it out [with Bethenny], it would have been a totally different season,” she said, before she and Andy Cohen opened up more about that moment with Bethenny, as seen in the clip above. On WWHL, also featured in the above clip, Jill revealed why she reacted the way she did at the time. However, in reflection, Jill noted, “Now I would handle it differently.”

On the Mend

Well, things took an unexpected turn for the former frenemies when Bethenny and Jill recently ran into each other on a flight. According to Jill, they really spent some time catching up.

“Oh, no, we definitely caught up,” she said. “It was really good. [We talked] the whole flight. [My boyfriend] Gary [Brody] was there too.”

Andy was, as you might imagine, pretty excited by their chance encounter. “She texted me when you guys were leaving. She was like, ‘You would die. [I’m] on a plane with Jill,’” he said. “My mind was blown. I was in a doctor’s office waiting room. I go, ‘I’m Venmo-ing you two a lot of money and I’m sending a crew.”

Jill added, “And I loved that, by the way. It was great. Crazy, right?”

When Bethenny was on WWHL back in May, she opened up about her drama with Jill over the years, as well as some of the chatter she’d heard about the current season of RHUGT, which, of course, features Jill as well as Dorinda Medley. Check it all out below.
