Jill Zarin and Alex McCord claim they were offered appearances on former Real Housewives of New York co-star Bethenny Frankel’s show. However, the ladies said they were insulted by the offers and turned Bethenny down.
Next Monday’s Watch What Happens Live on Bravo has a very special pre-taped interview with former Real Housewife of New York Jill Zarin. She has a lot of questions for Bravo and Andy Cohen, and she discussed with him the litany of emotions she felt about her unceremonious dismissal. In the preview clip Jill expresses a belief that Bravo and Andy had favoritism towards Bethenny.
Why do you think Jill was fired?
Jill Zarin has put her foot in her mouth — is anyone surprised? As fans of Real Housewives of New York know, this former reality star has her own shapewear line Skweez Couture. Some might think that the brand is aimed at 40-something women who are beginning to lose their shape, but according to Jill, the brand isn’t aimed at any age in particular and every woman, including teens, can benefit from her product. See a video of Jill and her daughter explaining how shapewear is a must for teen girls and helps “normalize” their bodies.
Teresa Giudice is in need of a friend — at least she is on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Jacqueline Laurita, her former BFF, and Caroline Manzo cut all ties with her after her tabloid drama became too much for them to deal with. Teresa recently revealed that she is no longer in contact with any of the other wives — including her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and cousin Kathy Wakile. Now, it’s being reported that producers will bring in someone else next season who will play for Team Giudice.
Jill Zarin got the boot from Real Housewives of New York after four seasons on the hit show. However, she hasn’t let that bump in the road slow her down. Since leaving the show, Jill has appeared on several talk shows including Better TV, Daytime TV, and the WPIX morning show, just to name a few. Now, Jill has caught the eye of a producer and has gotten her own gig! Keep reading for the announcement and prepare yourself for getting used to another weekly dose of Zarin!
