Bethenny Frankel sent Real Housewives of New York fans into a total tailspin as she had a low-key reunion with former best friend, Jill Zarin.
The pair were among the original cast when RHONY first hit our screens in 2008, with their close friendship falling apart on season three of the hit series.
But they had a brief reunion when they appeared to board the same flight ahead of the Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip season two airing this week – with fans questioning whether this could mean a possible on-screen project is secretly in the works.
Taking to Instagram, Skinny Girl founder Bethenny shared a selfie of the pair on the plane, with some choice hashtags.
‘So this girl walks onto a plane… #mentionitall #getahobby #ifwingscouldtalk,’ she wrote alongside the post, remembering some of her most iconic quotes.
A message across the picture read: ‘I’m up here….’ – a throwback to her argument with Kelly Killoren Bensimon.
Fans were living for the reunion and begged for this to secretly be the start of the RHONY: Legacy reboot that was announced earlier this year.
Between comments begging Bethenny and Jill to ‘mention it all’, one replied: ‘I love this more than I could ever describe!’
A follower pleaded: ‘Please let this be the start of Legacy!!!’
‘The duo I need back in my life!!!!!,’ another wrote, as an Instagram user joked: ‘This might break the internet.’

As a fan added: ‘OMG!!!!!! I LOVE this so much!!!! The 2 real diamonds of RHW HISTORY.
‘There is NO other like you 2. Thank you for sharing it.’
RHONY premiered in March, 2008, and has been a major fan favorite ever since, following original cast members Bethenny, Jill, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps and Alex McCord.
Since then, a host of other housewives have held a coveted apple, including Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer.
After months of speculation about the future of the franchise – following a disappointing season 13 – Andy Cohen announced a shake-up in a chat with Variety, explaining that bosses are on the lookout for a ‘multicultural’ group of friends to take the beloved franchise to new levels, while previous cast members could return for the unnamed spin-off.
Speaking of what is next for the beloved franchise, he added: ‘You know that we’re at a crossroads for RHONY. We’ve spent a lot of time figuring out where to go. And the plan that we’ve come up with, I think, is a real gift to the fans.
‘There are thousands of stories to tell here. This is the most multicultural, diverse, and energetic and exciting city in America: We are searching for a multicultural group of friends who really best reflect the most exciting city in the country.
‘We’re looking for a group of women who are real friends, and who are of diverse backgrounds, races and religions.’
The spin-off, which will feature ex-cast members from the original show over the years, currently does not have an official title, cast or air date.
