Is Jill Zarin Ready to Say “I Do” Again?

Jill Zarin is happy in love once again after the 2018 death of her husband, Bobby. Zarin, 55, was by Bobby Zarin’s side during his seven-year battle with cancer. The fabric business mogul died on January 13, 2018, and about six months later rumors swirled that Jill was out and about with a new man. She was coy about her new leading man in the first few months of the relationship, but that all changed when the pair became Instagram official in December 2018. Zarin seems to have fallen hard for Gary Brody, according to Bravo.

Who is Gary Brody?

Gary Brody, 55, is a prominent business owner in the greater New York area. The New York Native grew up in Queens before heading to Syracuse for college. He has been president of the clothing brand, Marcraft Apparel Group, which operates out of Spring Valley, NY, since 1991, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Brody has deep connections in the New York City fashion world, but he also has a weird connection to the RHONY franchise. Brody allegedly once dated Ramona Singer, one of Jill’s castmates, during her divorce from Mario Singer. According to People, Singer and Brody dated briefly, but there doesn’t seem to be any bad blood between Singer and Zarin, at least not over Brody.

Singer confirmed the connection during a Real Housewives of New York reunion. She noted that they had gone on a few dates, but she was by no means ready for a relationship. Singer and Brody stopped seeing each other long before he hooked up with Zarin.

Is Jill Zarin ready to get hitched?

While it seems like a whirlwind romance, especially considering it comes on the heels of Bobby Zarin’s death, Jill might be ready to get married again. The pair teased fans with talks of a potential proposal. Us Weekly caught up with the couple at a premiere earlier this week, and they noted that a wedding might happen sooner rather than later.

Zarin told Us Weekly reporters that they’d have to ask Brody about a potential proposal. The fashion mogul chimed in to note that there is nothing bad about wedding bells. Zarin also recently appeared on Hollywood Medium to get an extraordinary message from her late husband. Tyler Henry, the 23-year-old clairvoyant, told Zarin that Bobby blesses her union with Brody and wants her to be happy.

Jill and Bobby Zarin married in 2000. While they have no children together, each had children from previous relationships. Before his death, Bobby Zarin owned and operated Zarin Fabrics, a staple in the New York fabric industry.
