Jill Zarin On Bethenny Frankel: “I Don't See The Same Person Anymore”

Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin may no longer be friends when their friendship came crashing down seven years ago, but their time together as BFFs is etched into the memory of Real Housewives of New York City fans forever. Jill admitted to still watching the Bravo hit reality series, so what does she think when she sees her ex-friend on the show week over week?

"I don’t see the same person anymore," Jill told The Daily Dish podcast about the Bethenny we see today versus the Bethenny she used to spend summers with in her Hamptons home. "I don’t. But that’s not a bad thing. It’s just a growing thing. You know, she’s a mom now, she wasn’t a mom then. [You have] to grow up fast when you’re a mom. Now you’re responsible for another human being. When she was with me, she was just her. It was all about her. It was just a different time in our lives, the innocent time. Life was easy."

Jill said it was hard to see Bethenny going through so many life changes in Season 3 around the same time their friendship was dissolving.

"I don’t know too many people who could survive what she survived. She had four major life changes all happen to her at the same time. She lost a parent, she got pregnant, she moved—I don’t know if people realize that she was moving from her apatment to Downtown—and she was planning her wedding...I really wanted to be there for her, but she did not want me in her life, and I couldn’t force that. You can’t force yourself on someone."
