Jill Zarin hasn’t been on “The Real Housewives of New York City” for several seasons, but it doesn’t mean she is opposed to talking about her time on the show. The Bravo alum recently opened up about her relationship with Bethenny Frankel and reports that she was fired from the show.

While Zarin was a cast member on the show, her friendship with Frankel fell apart. Although she previously claimed that she has spoken to her former pal, she recently revealed that the two no longer have a relationship.

During an episode of Vicki Gunvalson’s “Whoop it Up With Vicki” podcast, Zarin admitted that she was unhappy about her fallout with Bethenny. “I don’t have that thick skin anymore,” she explained.

“You know what really hurt me? When I had that big fight with Bethenny … because when Bethenny left the show to do her own show, I was never able to resolve with her. Had she come back the next season, we would have had to make up.”

Even though Frankel attended Bobby Zarin’s funeral to show her support for her former “RHOA” castmate, the 56-year-old revealed that she hasn’t spoken to Frankel. When Gunvalson asked if the two were on speaking terms, Zarina opened up about the status of their friendship. “We’re on no terms. Not good, not bad,” she said.

Gunvalson revealed that she previously had a somewhat frigid exchange with Frankel when Frankel contacted her following Gunvalson’s “Real Housewives of Orange County” exit.

“She reached out to me privately and she just said, ‘You’ll be okay.’ I was happy that … because she’s removed from it. She’s unemotional,” Vicki stated.

“I would never have left, probably. I probably would have never. It was gonna take them firing me to be done. It was part of my life — 15 years. I was 42 years old when I started.”

Zarin also addressed her exit from “RHONY” following reports that she was fired from the reality series. “Listen, when I was cut it was my own fault because I quit,” she explained.

“People don’t wanna believe or whatever … I sent an email out […] to all the people I was friends with and the producers. I had ants in my pants and they hadn’t committed to coming back for next season yet. Bobby wanted to go on a big trip, and I couldn’t make that decision without knowing what I’m doing and getting that release, and it was just too much anxiety for me. I just got frustrated so I was like, you know what? I can’t do this anymore.”

Zarin revealed she regretted sending the email. “I figured, you know what? They’re not gonna listen to me anyway, they’re gonna do what they wanna do. [And then] three weeks later I got fired. Even though I quit, I didn’t like getting fired at all.”

“So they said, ‘We’re gonna take you up on your letter, and we’re done with you?’” Gunvalson asked.

“They never acknowledged it. So I’ll never really know the truth if they would have fired me if I hadn’t sent that email,” Zarin replied.

Since her exit, there have been rumors suggesting Zarin will return to the serious. However, Zarin has not come back to the reality series.
