When it comes to Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin, fans of The Real Housewives of New York City know there's a lot of bad blood between them. But after Jill was fired from the hit Bravo series, Bethenny made it clear that she still cares — at least a little — for her old friend.
"She's a survivor and she is definitely well-to-do," Bethenny told reporters, according to TV Guide, at Bravo's winter TV previews on Jan. 7. "I don't think she's worried about finding a job."
Jill was one of four cast members axed from the show after the fourth season finale aired in September. Cindy Barshop, Kelly Killoren Bensimon and Alex McCord were also cut.
"I'm sure it just stings a little bit, and she has her own way of dealing with it," Bethenny added. "I'm sure it's difficult for her to watch what's gone on with me."
Jill has confessed that she finds it annoying that Bethenny found so much success after she left the show in 2010, considering she herself brought her into the spotlight.
"I didn't get to make the money I feel I deserved," Jill told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week. "I didn't just help make the show popular; I cast it. I brought in Bethenny, and I don't get a percentage of anything she spins off."
Reportedly, Bethenny's spin-off, Bethenny Ever After, won't be on the air for much longer. Rumors have surfaced that the Skinnygirl mogul is considering dropping the show!
Would you miss Bethenny if she left Bravo for good?
