'The Real Housewives of New York City' Season 3, Episode 16 Recap: Reunion, part deux

When at last we reconvened, Jill was back in her banquette, apologizing for her teary escape from our collective wrath. Her hair was refluffed, her spray tan resheened. Okay, viewers, let her have it. Oh dear, it was hard not to feel for the old gal watching the second segment of this reunion special. She's trying so hard to reclaim her place in our hearts.

Yes she saved that icy voice mail message from Bethenny for two months so she could play it when the cameras started rolling. Yes she chose to throw news of Bobby's cancer diagnosis down on the table when she had her hand around Bethenny's corded neck.
