Sad news for "The Real Housewives of New York City" veteran Jill Zarin, whose husband Bobby Zarin has been battling thyroid cancer — he reportedly is "not doing well now."

Us Weekly reports the 71-year-old businessman, who owns Zarin Fabrics, was diagnosed in June 2009 and underwent surgery and treatment, but the cancer returned in 2013 and spread to his lungs.

Now, an insider tells Us, "Bobby is back in the hospital."

In November 2016, Jill told Us, “We received the news last week that Bobby’s cancer has spread to his brain. We remain strong during this difficult time with the love and support of our family, friends, and fans who remind us that we are not alone in our fight against cancer. Cancer is a disease that affects people all around the world and we must unite through this common bond, and work together to find a cure once and for all."

Zarin was a main cast member on "RHONY" from 2008-2011.
