After Jill Zarin ended their friendship on last week’s The Real Housewives of New York City on BRAVO, Bethenny Frankel needs to decide whether it is time to throw in the towel, or if she should fight for what was once like a sisterhood. Will she be able to convince Jill to talk this public feud out? Keep reading to find out!
Bethenny’s biggest mistake was going for a walk with Ramona SInger across the Brooklyn Bridge, which is strange because heaven forbid Ramona step foot into Brooklyn, and talking about what is going on with Jill. Ramona rips her apart and insults her left and right. Instead of Ramona hearing her out about what is going on with Jill Zarin, Ramona tells her she has no friends and she is losing everyone in her life. Ramona apologizes to Bethenny and tries to hear her side of things, and Bethenny tells Ramona that Jill told her their friendship is done. They get to the end of the bridge, and the meet Alex and Simon, where they continue to walk and in what Bethenny called the Ramonacoaster, Ramona does a total 360 and is in a great mood!
Meanwhile, back in Manhattan on this episode of The Real Housewives of New York City on BRAVO, Kelly Bensimon is trolling the streets for people to interview for an assignment she has far a magazine. She approaches random people on the street and is asking them if they are wearing underwear. Far cry from last season, where she wouldn’t put her name on anything because she is too classy. Give me just a small break, will you please?
The whole ridiculous argument between Bethenny and Jill is really getting out of hand. They were great friends, and Jill was there for her when she did not have that much going on. Then Bethenny’s schedule got busier, she had more commitments, and wasn’t around as much. Jill got offended, and Bethenny told her to get a hobby, which apparently was like telling the President to shove it, because Jill was outraged by that and hangs onto that comment in every conversation she has. If it isn’t stupid enough that this argument even went this far, now when Jill finds out that Kelly and Bethenny have made up as friends, she gets mad at Kelly. This whole thing is starting to get a little too high school.
LuAnn DeLesseps is invited into the city, and since she now lives in the Hamptons, she stays overnight at Jill’s apartment. As they are laying in bed, Jill reveals to LuAnn that Ramona told her that Bethenny and Kelly made up. Jill is shocked, which is the reason she sent Kelly an email telling her she better be careful when it comes to a friendship with Bethenny. I really think that Bethenny is getting a raw deal from everyone. She has alot of great things going for her, and maybe they are jealous of her success??
Bethenny needs someone to vent to , and her choice is Alex. She tells Alex that her father, who she does not have a relationship with, is critically ill. She is going to fly to LA to see him, but she is heartbroken and crying because she is conflicted about forgiving him for the situation that they have been in. Alex seems to genuinely care, and then in walks Kelly. And then Ramona. They are all there to judge models for Brooklyn’s Fashion Weekend final show. Ramona decides to stir the pot and tell Bethenny that Jill is coming to her house, and she thinks Bethenny should show up there and approach Jill to talk. Bethenny appreciates her trying to be some kind of peace maker, but Bethenny doesn’t want to ambush her like that, and she also has alot going on. Speaking of peacemakers, Alex approaches Jill about doing some work for the Brooklyn Fashion Weekend, and she lets Jill know that Bethenny is going through something and could really use a friend. Jill feels bad for her, and Alex tells her that if they want to stay friends, now is the time. But Jill says Bethenny has changed, that she is driven by her career and money and she is a different person. Alex didn’t buy one word.
The next day, at Ramona’s condo, Jill and LuAnn show up so Ramona could donate some clothing for a charity event. But little does Jill know that Ramona invited Bethenny to come and try and patch things up with Jill. As they are looking at clothes, the doorbell rings, and in walks Bethenny. LuAnn sees her first, then Jill walks in and is shocked and tells them she will not talk to Bethenny and feels ambushed. Bethenny just wants to say a few words, and if they are not going to be friends, that is fine, but she just wants to say a few things. As LuAnn and Ramona are eavesdropping in the hall, they start to argue about things that happened in their friendship. Jill agrees to sit down and talk, and she said that she doesn’t need toxicity in her life and friends that will give as well as take. Ramona, as her usual wacky self, stands there listening. What a troublemaker she is to ambush Jill, she just conjured up more drama, and I think she is enjoying every minute of them fighting. Then LuAnn walks in and interrupts saying that they have to leave, and they all say they are both sorry, but they are still not friends, and say their goodbyes. And of course there is Ramona, who started this whole thing, and thought she was doing the right thing. Jill starts to cry, and her BFF LuAnn tries to drag her away as Jill is saying maybe she has been too hard on Bethenny. LuAnn of course would not want that, because she has been closest to Jill lately.
Will this ever stop? It is so sad to see two people who were once so close end their friendship. Tune in next week to see if they make any progress, the previews for the next episode look sooooo good!!
