Bethenny Frankel Finally Introduces Daughter To Jill Zarin Years After Falling Out

The emotional 'RHONY' stars reunited after the death of Bobby.

It took a tragedy to bring Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin back together. Six years after their falling out, the former friends reunited on last night’s Real Housewives of New York City at the funeral for Jill’s husband Bobby.

During the emotional reunion, Jill told Bethenny, “I’m alone now. I don’t know what I’m going to do without him. What am I going to do? I haven’t been alone since I was 20 years old.”

Bethenny replied, “We’re all alone. I’m alone too. But you have good friends.”

After the bittersweet moment, Bethenny later took her daughter Bryn to visit Jill.

“The whole way up here, I explained [to Bryn], ‘This is a girl I used to be friends with.’ I said, ‘I want you to be so sweet and give her a hug and she’ll freak out because she never met you,’” Bethenny told costar Sonja Morgan. “She died. She couldn’t believe she was meeting Bryn. Bryn gave her a hug, Bryn said, ‘Hi Bobby,’ like to the pictures. It was so sweet. She’s like, ‘Oh my God.’”

As for reuniting in the future, Bethenny told the cameras, “Let me just keep this where it is right now. I was burned. If she reaches out, I reach out back. I’m happy we had closure, I’m happy I came to the funeral, but I just want to keep it where it is.”
