Jill Zarin appears in just one episode of The Real Housewives of New York City this season, but for enemy and former co-star Bethenny Frankel, that’s one episode too many.
“[Bethenny]’s livid that Jill is trying to steal the spotlight,” a source told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
According to the insider, Bethenny refused to film with Jill and threatened to leave the show if she is brought back full time. “Bethenny has made it clear that if they are tempted to take Jill back full time, she will quit the show,” said the source. “It’s either her or Jill!”
Jill’s appearance on the show was brought about by LuAnn de Lesseps' wedding to Tom D’Agostino, which Bethenny was not invited to, considering she was the one who revealed to LuAnn that Tom had cheated.
Once best friends, Jill and Bethenny had a very public falling out on the Housewives franchise over five years ago. And Bethenny will do anything to keep Jill from coming back to the show. “She had to go naked and make out with Sonja [Morgan] to get any attention,” said the source.
Do you think Bethenny is right to freak out over Jill’s momentary return? Would you like to see Jill back on the show full time? Let us know in the comments!
