The currency of death has been cheapened!
Bobby Zarin’s funeral has been scandalized by the sacrilege act of Bravo cameras filming the event for the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York.
As reported, Bobby Zarin, died at the age of 71, on Saturday, after a long battle with cancer.
The big news to emerge from Bobby’s tragic passing is Bethenny Frankel attended his funeral service on Monday, Jan. 15, after ending her long feud with Jill Zarin.
“Bravo cameras were rolling and caught Bethenny [Frankel] and Jill [Zarin] talking outside the service,” reports Radar. “The other ladies had no idea a camera crew was coming. The camera crew did not follow the ladies inside,” the source insisted.”
Also in attendance were Jill’s RHONY co-stars — Sonja Morgan, Aviva Drescher, Dorinda Medley and Kelly Bensimon.
Jill shared the following emotional tribute to her late husband on Instagram.
“Rest In Peace my love. Words can not express the hole in my heart. Bobby taught me what true and deep love is. Thank you my love for sharing your life with me.. for raising Allyson as if she was your own, being an amazing father and grandfather and teaching me how to be a better person. You inspire those around you to be the best they can be. I will never forget you… your legacy lives on through your beautiful children and grandchildren . I will continue to raise money and awareness for ITOG ( international Thyroid Oncology Group) so maybe this won’t happen to the next guy who draws the proverbial short straw. I will continue to honor you and make you proud . You taught me so many lessons. I will turn the lights off when I leave a room and try not to lose my keys! Lists! Yes I will make lists now that you can’t remind me. Thank you to all our friends, family and fans for the most incredible love you have shown our family. The messages bring tears to my eyes and will continue reading them all in the coming weeks. I will continue my tribute in the coming days and weeks and if you want to share anything please leave messages. Tomorrow is the funeral so I will sleep now. Love Jill”
Her daughter, Ally Shapiro, gave “touching” speeches about Bobby during the funeral service.
“Jill expressed so much gratitude for him and their 20 years together. Everyone said similar things: he was generous, kind and fun.”
