Bethenny For President?

A number of stars from the "Real Housewives" franchise attended Monday's funeral service for Bobby Zarin, the late husband of reality star Jill Zarin.

Current and former "Real Housewives of New York" cast members Aviva Drescher, Bethenny Frankel, Sonja Morgan, Kelly Killoren Bensimon and Ramona Singer were among those who paid their respects at the Riverside Memorial Chapel in New York City, two days after Bobby died at 71 following a lengthy fight with cancer.

Marla Maples — the second ex-wife of President Trump — and "The Millionaire Matchmaker" host Patti Stanger were also in attendance at the Upper West Side memorial, as was "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Danielle Staub.

Jill Zarin, who starred on "Real Housewives of New York City" from 2008 to 2011, was married to Bobby for 18 years.

"I wasn't sure if I could stand up here today. (Bobby) was an incredibly great husband, a great father, and grandfather, and truly great friend," an emotional Jill told the crowd at his service, according to People.

Bobby was initially diagnosed in 2009 with thyroid cancer, a condition that returned in 2015 and spread to his lungs. In 2016, doctors diagnosed Bobby with a brain tumor.

News of his death was first revealed Saturday in a post of Jill's official website. She then paid tribute and mourned the loss of her husband in an Instagram post last night.

"Words can not express the hole in my heart. Bobby taught me what true and deep love is," Jill, 54, wrote. "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."

Several of Jill's "Real Housewives" co-stars also honored Bobby on social media, including Drescher and Singer, who described him as "one of the absolute GREATS" in an Instagram message shared by both.

Frankel, meanwhile, fondly remembered Bobby in a tweet.

"Here's to those who wish us well. All the rest can go to hell." One of Bobby Zarin's favorites," Frankel wrote. "Another one: "It's all good," and Bobby, now it really is… #RIP."
