The above side-by-side images of Real Housewives of New York City’s star Jill Zarin show a dramatically different countenance for the reality cast member. The pic on the left was taken Sunday at the TV Land Awards. The pic on the right is from back on October 14th, 2010 during an appearance for a breast cancer fund raiser.
This new look bears the obvious question, “Has Jill Zarin had any shall we say upgrades?” Well as fans of the show know the 47-year-old isn’t one to hold back on expressing herself and she told Popeater’s Rob Shuter that she DID NOT have any work done.
“If I did, I would be the first to admit it,” says the reality star. “When I had by breast reduction I was very open about it.”
A plastic surgeon who was interviewed for Popeater’s write-up felt differently. Dr. Jennifer Walden stated that:
“It appears Jill Zarin has had injectables like Botox to her crow’s feet and forehead, as well as possible fillers to the nasolabial folds, or laugh lines,” says Dr. Walden. “Also, it looks like she has had a rhinoplasty (or nose job), which served to straighten and narrow her nose.”
For an even more dramatic side-by side check out the same recent image from above alongside a photo taken of Zarin from back on June 15th, 2010 during her appearance at the 9th Annual Four Seasons of Hope Gala at Cipriani Wall Street:
I’m no expert for sure but without question Jill’s new look certainly is different. I’d like to add that I thought she looked amazing regardless if there has or has not been any work done! So what do you think? Has zingin’ Jill Zarin had plastic surgery and will the Ramonacoaster ever let her live this down if she has?
Jill is having a little fun with all this. She tweeted out the following about Popeater’s piece:
Popeater’s Rob Shuter then spoke to Jill’s castmate Ramona about Jill’s new look. Ramona commented “I really don’t know what to think. If you see her in the photos, her face looks different. Personally I like her other look better.”
The Ramanator also suggested that Jill’s new look might be attributed to too many injectables (like fillers and Botox,) “Jill overdid it. It’s not the best look. Too much injectables look as bad as a bad face-lift.”
UPDATE: Jill Zarin has come clean about regularly having “liquid facelifts” starting a last year with Dr. Patricia Wexler. CLICK HERE to see her appearance on The Wendy Williams Show in which she talks in detail about exactly what she has and hasn’t had done!
