My new favorite Jill Zarin photo: arriving at Cirque du Soleil ‘Zarkana’ Premiere

The Real Housewives of new York City‘s Jill Zarin took a real beating last season as her feud with co-star Bethenny Frankel made her seem like quite the villanesse. But, as is often the case with drama by Bravo, the tables have turned this year and thankfully Jill seems to be right back to being the fun-loving New York Queen Bee we all grew to love in the first two seasons.

And speaking of fun-loving New York Queen Bee Jill was all of the above as she and her daughter Ally Shapiro Zarin attended the World Premiere of Cirque du Soleil’s ‘Zarkana’ held at Radio City Music Hall earlier tonight! In the photo at the top of the post Jill poses with some of the ‘Zarkana’ cast members, which kind of looks like a photo from Morocco dontcha think?!? That’s definitely Sonja to her right! Someone check that woman for panties!

Actually, the picture looks like a cast photo from Bravo’s new re-imagining of The Wizard of Oz! “Ginger, I don’t think we’re in New York City any more!” (By the way, you can click the photo for a zoomed-in super-sized version.)

Here’s just Jill without the bizarre cast mates:

I think whenever Bethenny’s not around Jill is absolutely adorable! (Unless she modeling some of her Skweez Couture Shapewear with that Madonna pony tail she wears sometimes – then “adorable” becomes a bit more “va-va-va-voomish.”) And I have to officially announce that this photo has bumped her “Bethenny Shrink Ray” tennis racket picture out of my number one slot! (And that’s been my favorite for a while!)

That being said, Jill also posed for another great – although less surreal – picture with her daughter Ally outside the event:

Awwwww! (You know poor Ally is embarrassed!)

And in case you missed it, be sure to check out Jill and Kelly Bensimon in Countess LuAnn de Lesseps new music video for “Chic C’est La Vie!” C’est bon, c’est bon!
