Jill, 55, and Bethenny, 48, appeared to be mending their relationship after Jill's husband Bobby Zarin, 72, passed away following a battle with thyroid cancer on January 13, 2018. Bethenny attended Bobby's funeral but hasn't been around much since.

"It's definitely better than it's ever been since that whole thing happened. She doesn't have time for me and I'm sad about that, but I understand it, I really do," Jill admitted.

She continued, "I don't want to go back full-time anyway, I'd like to be a friend. What I bring now is a very different Jill, and I think the fans want to see that. Every single day I get tweets, Facebooks, comments ... 'Come back!' 'When are you coming back?' I feel an obligation to satisfy that."

Jill maintains she's not the only one that's changed, as Bethenny has also become a different person over the years.

"It's not money. Life has treated her in a strange way, it's given her a lot of rewards but it has also punished her. It has rewarded her financially. Look Bethenny seems very happy, she's got a guy in Boston, she got her own place, so she doesn't have time for me. I'd like to think we could go back to where we were," Jill explained.
