Bobby Zarin has lost his battle against cancer.
The husband of Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin, Bobby passed away on Saturday while surrounded by family members and loved ones.
He was 71 years old.
In tribute to her late soulmate, Jill posted an official statement on her website on behalf of the family.
It reads as follows:
“With the heaviest of hearts, we are devastated to share the news that our beloved Bobby Zarin passed away peacefully today surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer.
“There are no words to describe how heartbroken we are. Thank you, everyone for all your love, and support during this difficult time.”
Along with this simple and sentimental message, the website included a photo of Bobby in a suit.
Here it is:
Bobby Zarin was initially diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2009.
He went on to have his thyroid removed, while also undergoing radioactive iodine treatment in an attempt to overcome the very serious illness.
“He’s in a better place now,” said friend and fellow Bravo personality Ramona Singer to E! News.
In July of 2015, Bobby spoke to People Magazine about the diagnosis and treatment.
“The radioactive iodine usually kills off whatever undetectable cancer cells are left in your body after surgery,” he explained at the time, adding:
“We thought it was cured – and it usually is in about 93 percent of cases. But I wasn’t able to absorb the radioactive iodine. So it came back.”
In emotional footage shared on her Instagram page back on December 3, Jill discussed how her husband was in the hospital and “was [doing] okay.”
But she clearly knew the end was sadly near.
“I’m just going to miss Bobby,” she said tearfully in this video. “I’m going to miss my life with him.”
Although the Real Housewives of New York City veteran tried to be optimistic throughout Bobby’s treatment, she said “his cancer took an unexpected turn” over the summer.
In July of last year, Bobby was admitted to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, where he recovered from a procedure related to his disease.
“He is not going down without a fight,” Jill told People. “We’re hoping for a miracle.”
The couple was married for 17 years at the time of Bobby’s death.
In addition to Jill, Bobby is survived by his children – David Zarin, 41, Jennifer Zarin, 38, Jonathan Zarin, 35; along with 25-year-old stepdaughter Ally Shapiro.
A service for Bobby will be held at a Riverside Memorial at a yet-to-be determined date.
Our thoughts go out to Jill Zarin and all others affected by this tragedy.
May Bobby Zarin rest in peace.
This not exactly just in:
Courtney Stodden isn't the most emotionally stable woman on the planet.
We mean no harsh judgment by this statement.
We're just stating a fact that Stodden herself has pretty much owned up to, such as when she shared a troubling portrait of herself on Instagram late last year and wrote as a simple caption:
That was the first we had heard from Stodden since August, when she opened up about her split from husband Doug Hutchison.
"Our relationship is really interesting to say the least because there are so many emotions," Stodden said at the time, adding of the actor to whom she was married for six years:
"We are both heartbroken I guess and it’s hard to be in each other’s orbit because of that heartbreak."
In case you forgot, Stodden rose to fame after marrying Hutchison at the age of 16… when he was at the age of 51.
She is also famous for often taking her clothes off online and for trying to establish herself as an actress or a singer.
At the moment, however, she's nothing more than a heartbroken woman.
She has shared a very emotional video on Instagram that opens as follows:
“So, obviously, I’ve been crying – again. I just want to be honest with you guys about some things. Me and my husband have been going through a really rough time – separation, and ultimately divorce, coming up in a week.
"I’ve, at the last minute, realized that I don’t want it and I want to try to make things work.”
It sounds like the divorce papers are not yet signed, and that Stodden hopes they never are.
“Ever since we’ve been separated and he’s moved away, I’ve been really depressed and I’ve realized that I don’t deserve him,” Stodden continued, crying.
“I love him so much and I need him back in my life. I just need him to come help me and be with me and I love him.”
As a caption to the video below, Stodden wrote:
So basically this is what I’ve been dealing with in my life … it’s been rough. To say the least. Everyone goes through shit … this is mine. You aren’t alone.

Things have escalated quickly between Briana Renee and Matt Grundhoffer.
It’s pretty safe to say these former lovers won’t be exchanging Christmas cards a year from now.
Back on November 10, the Little Women: LA star announced on Instagram that she was leaving Grundhoffer, but she didn’t sound too bitter about the split.
“After 3 years, and bringing the most handsome little boy into this world, we have come to the end of our marriage,” wrote Renee online, adding:
‘We rode til the wheels fell off, and now I’m only focusing on being the best mama.”
Granted, Grundhoffer had admitted to cheating on Renee, so there was clearly tension between the former spouses.
But it still appeared as if the focus would be on an amicable break-up in order to guarantee the very best for the ex-couple’s young son.
But the reality star’s divorce documents have now leaked online and they paint Grundhoffer in some VERY disturbing light.
For starters, Briana is seeking child and spousal support from Grundhoffer.
That’s not unusual, however.
TMZ also reports that she filed for a restraining order last month because she claims Grundhoffer verbally abused her at least twice in November, referring to her a “cuntt” and a “worthless bitch.”
The documents also allege he threatened to take their one-year-old son, Maverick, away from her.
And it gets even worse.
Briana goes on to say Matt is often drunk and that he threatens violence any time he’s inebriated.
She shares a story from April of last year during which he supposedly threatened to “kill everyone in the house” and adds that he talked about suicide last June.
And it gets even worse.
According to Renee, she found exchanges between Grundhoffer and another woman.
She says they were “sexually explicit and disturbing” … and allegedly “involved bestiality and proposals of sex acts with minor children, including the proposal of sex acts with Matthew’s minor child, age 12, from a previous relationship.”
Not much more we can say about it than that.
After Renee initially confirmed she was divorcing Grundhoffer, a transgender model came out and labeled the pair’s relationship as the “most dysfunctional ever.”
Does this verify Renee’s claims against her soon-to-be-ex?
But it’s pretty clear these two are not meant for each other, wouldn’t you say?
For now, a judge has awarded Renee full custody of Maverick and has ordered Matt to stay at least 100 yards away from her at all times.
