Although Jill Zarin is expected to appear on “The Real Housewives of New York City” Season 11, a new report is suggesting Bethenny Frankel has refused to let her former friend return as a full-time cast member.

Earlier this month, several outlets revealed Zarin would be featured on a few episodes of the new season. When viewers last saw the reality star, she and Frankel were embroiled in a heated feud, but off-screen the ladies managed to come to an understanding.

However, the National Enquirer published an article claiming Frankel is still bitter over her feud with Zarin and is influencing production. “Jill will appear on a few episodes with her friend Luann de Lesseps, but that’s all,” a mysterious source told the tabloid.

The supposed confidant goes on to imply that Frankel is so upset, she is refusing to let Zarin become a full-time cast. “Bethenny will just not let go of their feud and she doesn’t want Jill back on the show.”

Despite the report, a source close to the production of the Bravo series told Gossip Cop the report was false and insisted Frankel never tried to interfere with her alleged rival’s return to “RHONY.” The fact-checking website also noted that Zarin previously revealed she didn’t want to return to the show as a full-time cast member.

Furthermore, both she and Frankel confirmed that while they are no longer as close as they used to be, there is no animosity between them.

Although Frankel and Zarin have a confrontational past, the Skinnygirl founder has not tried to stop her former pal from joining “The Real Housewives of New York City” Season 11 as a full-time cast member.
