‘RHONY’ alums Bethenny Frankel, Jill Zarin reunite after fallout

Water under the Manhattan Bridge?

Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin had fans cheering on Monday as they reunited on a flight 12 years after their massive “Real Housewives of New York City” feud.

“So this girl is walking on a plane…” the philanthropist wrote in an Instagram selfie with her former costar.

In the photo, both Frankel, 51, and Zarin, 58, were smiling at the camera from their seats.

Frankel wrote “I’m up here” about the photo, referencing one of her most iconic lines during her time on the Bravo show from 2008 to 2010 and from 2015 to 2019.

The host of “Big Shot With Bethenny” also added the hashtags “Mention It All” and “Get A Hobby” to her caption, which were common phrases she used during her tenure.

Zarin – who appeared in “RHONY” from season 1 to season 4 – also confirmed that they were on good terms by sharing the photo on her own account. “Pleasant flight, no turbulence 😉✈️,” she captioned the shot.

The formerly feuding friends bumped into each other in 2010 when Frankel told Zarin to “find a hobby.”

The “Bethenny Ever After” alum later elaborated on their feud, claiming on “The View” that Zarin had allegedly asked other cast members not to film with her.

Since leaving the show in 2011, Zarin Frankel has slammed several times. She recently called the former “Bethenny” host a “nobody” in an interview for Dave Quinn’s October 2021 book, “Not All Diamonds and Rosé.”

“Kelly Bensimon was a supermodel and Bethenny Frankel couldn’t sell a cupcake in a supermarket,” Zarin told the author at the time. “Honestly, she was a nobody.”

Zarin slammed the entrepreneur again in April, telling Vidak For Congress that Frankel came to her late husband Bobby Zarin’s funeral in 2018 for publicity.

“She came with cameras [to Bobby’s funeral]which I didn’t know would be there, so that changed it for me,” she recalled.

“Housewives came without cameras to pay their respects: Dorinda [Medley]luann [de Lesseps]Ramona [Singer]everything came [with] no makeup, no hair, you know, no glamour.”

Zarin had previously sworn that she would never be friends with Frankel again.

When Andy Cohen asked the former reality star in May 2021 if she saw any reconciliation in their future, Zarin replied, “No, I don’t know. No. No.”
