Apparently Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin’s long-simmering feud is ... still simmering. If one returns to Bravo next year, the other will not be joining her.
Insiders at Bravo report that Frankel’s return to the Real Housewives of New York next season has hit a major snag, and that snag is named Zarin.
“Bethenny hasn’t signed a deal with Bravo or the production company yet because she is refusing to come back if arch-enemy Jill Zarin returns,” a source dished.
“For Bethenny to return to the show, she wants to move forward. Having Jill come back would just create more false drama in an attempt to recreate the past.”
Isn't paying Bethenny $1 million to return for a season of reduced filming doing exactly that for a show that has tanked in the ratings in the last few seasons?
“It’s not that Bethenny has any hatred towards Jill, it’s simply she has moved on from all of that,” the source explained, adding that the two are civil nowadays.
They've even run into each other, and when they do, "exchanged pleasantries.”
