Do NOT expect Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel to appear on Million Dollar Matchmaker anytime soon — as host Patti Stanger revealed that she is one star she will NOT work with, and it's because of a feud between the two ladies and Patti's pal Jill Zarin! The love guru first dropped the bombshell during WE tv's Season Two Premiere of Million Dollar Matchmaker screening and Q&A at NYC's Whitby Hotel, which Life & Style was on hand for.
"I just feel like when people are mean to other people, they don't deserve love," she said — but that's not all! Patti dropped by our office for a chat on Thursday and further elaborated on the tiff. "She hurt our feelings, me and Jill. We were really close, and there are parts of me that still love [you] Bethenny, but I would want an apology. Why did you go behind my back and talk to my clients, which you know [she] did, because I used to fix her up — and more importantly, why did you hurt Jill while [her husband] Bobby [Zarin] is sick? You can't make a f–king phone call to Bobby and say, 'how are you?' Because, you know, he may not make it. This is not a game, this is real life."
Patti was referring to Bobby's cancer, which returned back in November 2016. He was first diagnosed in 2009 with thyroid cancer. When it comes to his condition, the former Millionaire Matchmaker star said "I saw Bobby Monday night, he looks way better. The medication is slowly taking but you know, it is cancer, it is very extreme. It is very aggressive." She also shared her love for her pal's man.
Million Dollar Matchmaker premieres on Friday at 10 p.m. on WE tv.
