Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel may have burned some bridges since their days together on The Real Housewives of New York, but when it comes down to it, Jill still wishes the best for her former co-star.

"I just want her to be happy and her daughter to be happy,” the red-headed housewife told In Touch of Bethenny, who recently filed for divorce from her husband Jason Hoppy. "But you know, life is not always what you plan it. I was divorced once. I don’t wish that anybody."

Since In Touch first broke the news of the pair’s split in December, the Skinnygirl founder has been struggling to keep it together in public. So when we caught up with Jill at New York Fashion Week, she wasn’t shy to talk about the troublesome status of her former friend.

“I think everyone sort of watched it together— the marriage unravel,” she said of parted parents. “It was kind of sad to watch it unravel."

But having starred alongside Bethenny for three seasons of the Bravo reality show, Jill’s sure sure Bethenny will persevere.

“Bethenny’s very strong and very focused and very committed to making her daughter happy and doing whatever that takes," Jill says. "If she’s gonna get divorced, let it be when her child’s really young and doesn’t really remember. I know that she’ll do what's in the best interest of her daughter. A happy mother is a happy life."
