The Real Housewives of New York City: Real Life Drama!By Delaina Dixon | March 18, 2010 | Entertainment
The third season of The Real Housewives of New York City is underway, but not everyone is jumping for joy over the first episode.
Our correspondent Jac’leen Smith spoke with Jill Zarin who admitted she was “not thrilled” with the kick-off episode. Could it be because it revealed her disdain with co-star Bethenny Frankel, who hadn’t spoken to her friend in months?
“I am actually looking forward to seeing more episodes and how the producers unravel the story,” says Jill, who talks about friendship in her new book, Secrets of a Jewish Mother, now on sale.
“I own how I felt at the time it happened. Life goes on, relationships change, but I always want people to be the best they can be. If I can help, that makes me happy.”
Ramona Singer summed it up like this. It’s “a tumultuous rollercoaster ride,” she told us of this latest season where friendships and alliances have shifted. “Hold onto your seats so you don’t fall off.” Sounds like this cast has been taking notes from Survivor!
Jill and Bethenny may be on the outs, but Bethenny can’t stop raving about her new life.
“I found love. I’m pregnant. I’m shooting Bethenny’s Getting Married, she said gushingly.
Bethenny is soaring in her professional life as well. “I’m finishing The SkinnyGirl book tour and I’m about to go on The Skinny Girl Margarita book tour which is comical since I’m pregnant and hocking margaritas, but that’s what I’m doing.”
Formerly single Bethenny was mum on the wedding date, but she did say that the wedding was soon.
Wonder if Jill will be a guest?
