Bethenny Frankel vs. Jill Zarin: Coming to The Real Housewives of New York City

by at . Comments

You won't believe this, but a lot of drama is coming to The Real Housewives of New York City.

When the third season of the Bravo hit premieres on March 4, it will center on a feud between Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel.

"This is the angriest season yet," Zarin shared with Life & Style. "There's a lot of hurt, a lot of pain."

What are those feelings based on? Sources say that Jill is pissed with Bethenny because the script calls for it she wasn't there for Jill when the latter's husband, Bobby, was diagnosed with cancer over the summer.

"It was a difficult time for me and my family, and the loss of Bethenny's friendship tore me apart," Jill confirmed.

Frankel agrees that the season ahead is "brutal," but "I don't have any hard feelings about anybody. She adds:

"I'm too happy. I have too much to be happy about to worry about what's going on with other people."

That's the selfless attitude we love! Good luck with it, Jason Hoppy.


I thought being pregnant was supposedly softening Bethenny? It seems she's just as hard, selfish and callous as she always was. I have friends who I consider family and not only would I drop everything to be there for them in such a situation, but they would do the same for me. The world can be cruel but friends shouldn't make it worse. Shame on you Bethenny. Jason, you're in for a life of hell.


I love both Bethenny and Jill so I won't take sides. However, I believe you should depend on your family for support when you are going through tough times, not friends. When my sister passed away, it was her family who supported her through her tough times and who were at the funeral as well. Friends come and go and we should be happy with the ones who decide to stay.


Jill, I now that Bethanny not being there hurt you, but sweetheart, really I can't believe that it was done to hurt you, talk to you Mom, sheis so wise, and Bethanny is going to need you even more than ever. You know her background and that you and Gloria are really the only sane family she has. Please Jill be a sweetheart like you have always been. Love Fran


I absolutely cannot believe Bethenny was capable of that type of
hurt and just plain selfishness towards someone who has been a
great friend to her...I don't blame Jill for reacting the way she
did on the pre-views. When your family or spouse has been
diagnosed with something as serious as cancer, the most important
thing in your life outside of prayer, is the love, understanding and support of your closest friends. Bethenny, that " happy remark " was callous and mean. What comes
around goes around, sweetheart. Sure you have the right to be happy, but you have friends who need you sometimes also. You thought ONLY of yourself, and
it WILL come back and bite you back where it hurts the most.
To someone YOU love. Let's hope people are not as cruel to YOU!
Jill certainly would NOT have been, if the tables were turned.
