Bethenny Frankel's New Uptown Apartment Is Daringly Close to Jill Zarin's

bethenny frankelDid you see when Bethenny Frankel went on Ellen and said that she doesn't pay attention to the rumors about her split or the stacks of magazines publicizing her divorce? Yeah, well, here's another one she can turn a blind eye to, if she's so inclined. It's been reported that Bethenny and toddler Bryn have moved out of the $5 million apartment they shared with Jason Hoppy in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan and have taken shelter in a new place on the Upper East Side of the Big Apple.

That's all fine and good and whatever, but allegedly, Bethenny's got a new boyfriend, Warren Lichtenstein, a 47-year-old finance billionaire, who also happens to live in that building.

The two reportedly even vacationed together in Hong Kong this fall, which, naturally, incensed Jason.

Who knows if Bethenny's trying to get closer to this new billionaire boyfriend of hers or if it's just some rumor, but I can't help but keep my eye on the prize.

And that prize, of course, is a run-in with Jill Zarin, who also happens to live on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

Can you just imagine? There's Jill in her Madonna ponytail extension, browsing the soup section of their local organic bodega, when in walks a devastated and divorced Bethenny with her sad, droopy eyes and multi-thousand-dollar Birkin bag. They'll catch each other's gaze as they reach for the last can of low-sodium kosher chicken broth, and a wave of forgiveness and friendship will wash over them like a wine-drunk hug from Andy Cohen. The warmth will last for half a second until Bethenny comes to her senses and runs, runs, runs 90 blocks downtown and vows never to return to the U.E.S. ever again.

For she can lose her husband, lose her apartment, lose her dignity, but she can't for the life of her, and for us, lose herself in another relationship with Jill "the show still needs me" Zarin.

Cue Jill talking to the press about Bethenny's move into "her" neighborhood in 3 ... 2 ...

What do you think of Bethenny's move?
