Last September we learned that former castmember Jill Zarin was unceremoniously fired from the Bravo reality TV series The Real Housewives of New York City. At the time, Jill seemed to be OK with her axing (before she got all bitter about it) but today we are hearing otherwise. Apparently, Jill is under the ridiculous impression that Bravo wants her back on the show … but she says she won’t return for less than $1 million dollars (LMAO!!!). Bravo has issued a statement on the matter, stating in no uncertain terms that they do NOT want Jill back on the show — at all. Yikes! Can Jill really be so desperate for press attention that she would embarrass herself like this?
After a big casting shake-up this season on The Real Housewives of New York City, Jill Zarin seems to think Bravo needs her back. But that’s not going to happen. “We wish Jill the best, but there is no consideration of her returning to the series,” a network spokesperson tells PEOPLE. The former Housewife, who was fired after the fourth season along with Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon, has publicly criticized the newly rebooted series and recently told the New York Daily News, “You don’t change what works.” Zarin has also pointed to the casting changes as indicative of a decline in viewer interest and ratings, telling the Daily News, “I’m happy that these new women are enjoying their fame; I’ve reached out and offered [Bravo] any support they need.” Before the show premiere, Zarin told the Huffington Post that being ousted from the show has brought “the highest highs and lowest lows.” “I have a little anxiety with the show coming back, because I have never had this outpouring of love from fans all over the world saying they will miss me,” she told Huffington Post at the time. “I didn’t expect they would miss me. … I thought they would move straight on to the new girls.” A source close to the network defends Bravo’s decision to recast the show, which added Heather Thomson, Carole Radziwill and Aviva Drescher in its fifth season. “It was a bold move introducing three new Housewives in season 5,” the source says. “We can’t wait for fans to see how this season progresses and ultimately ends in an explosive finale.”
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Oh, Jill … girl, please stop before you embarrass yourself further. It seems to me that she thinks that by going public with this that fans will force Bravo to hire her back on the show. LOL. No. I, for one, do not miss Zarin‘s shrill annoying and childish behavior on the show. As far as I know, Jill enjoys a very happy life of wealth and luxury … she should be content with her life as it is. Crying about her firing is not going to get her job back. It only serves to make her look even more desperate. Oy! So sad.
