Jill Zarin returned on The Real Housewives of New York City Season 10 Episode 11, and we wish it was under better circumstances.
The former cast member reunited with the ladies as she geared up for her late husband, Bobby Zarin’s funeral.
“I got a text from mutual friends and Jill herself that Bobby passed away. It’s really sad. I knew how close they were,” said Ramona Singer while chatting with Dorinda Medley.
Ramona went on to confirm that she met up with Bobby and Jill while he was ill, and they put the past behind them. That’s a pretty big move when you consider the history between the three of them.
“Bethenny hasn’t seen her for six years,” continued Ramona, which essentially confirmed we were going to be in for one of the most awkward reunions in the history of reunions.
If you watch The Real Housewives of New York City online, you know that Bethenny and Jill were once best friends, but a falling out paved the way for them to part ways and never speak again.
“Despite what happened with Jill, Bobby loved me,” said Bethenny of the whole situation, and made her way back from Aspen in luxury via a private jet for the event.
Bethenny maintained that she was going to pay her respects and make a swift exit, but it all hit home for her when she was there.
“I don’t know why I’m not leaving. I want to see her again. I’m feeling bad for a woman who lost her husband. It’s a real loss,” Bethenny said to the audience.
Their reunion was as heartbreaking as one would expect. Jill admitted that she was in a difficult spot because she had not been alone since her 20s.
“So proud. Bobby loved you,” Jill declared.
“Where are the gift bags? Terrible funeral,” Bethenny said, clearly attempting to make light of a dire situation.
After the funeral, Luann appeared in the episode thanks to the power of the telephone. Bethenny hit her up, and they got talking.
Luann was mad that she missed the funeral, but she realized she needed to get herself better or she was going to end up in some serious trouble.
“It was a wake-up call for me. This is the bottom,” Luann shared with her friend.
But Luann was looking at the positive side of things and admitted that it was for the best she was arrested because it gave her the nudge in the right direction she needed.
Tinsley’s mother, Dale, was in the city and met up with her daughter. It quickly emerged that Dale was meddling in her daughter’s life by telling Scott Tinsley’s biological clock was running out.
“Oh my god. Literally,” Tinsley said, before telling her mother to stay out of her life if her aim was to mess things up.
Despite all of the drama, Tinsley went to look for wedding dresses with her mother. Is there actually hope for them to get married?
There may be a way for them to have kids. Tinsley made a video call to Dr. Denker aka her fertility specialist, and he showed them a picture of her eggs.
“I’m looking at what potentially could be my children,” said Tinsley.
We finally got more intel from Luann as the episode drew to a close.
“This past month for me has been eye-opening,” Luann said to the audience.
“I feel really, really good,” said Luann on a phone call to Dorinda. “I’ve been self-medicating for a while. I binge in order to cover my emotions.”
“I want to see what it’s like to be sober, see if I can actually enjoy myself without it,” Luann said as the episode closed.
