New season of 'Real Housewives of New York,' new Jill Zarin

Jill Zarin A new season of “The Real Housewives: New York” debuts tonight on Bravo at 11 p.m., and along with the two new housewives – Jennifer Gilbert and Sonja Morgan – is a new and improved Jill Zarin, with a new and unexpected BFF.

For the past two seasons, Jill and Bethenny Frankel were like long-lost sisters, but Zarin told CNN that after season two wrapped, her relationship with Frankel hit a rough patch that still hasn't healed.

“When we stopped filming last year, we still had lives and we were still interacting with each other. When the show picks up in September, you pick up right where we are in our lives,” she said. Zarin didn't elaborate on what exactly caused the riff, but confirmed that “there were definitely some damaged relationships in the year that happened. It’s really sad for me; it’s hard and it’s painful.”
