The Real Housewives of New York City‘s Jill Zarin shocked fans when she appeared on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live! on April 7 wearing a Madonna-inspired corset and matching high-headed Madonna ponytail.
Many were wondering if the look was something fun Jill pulled out for the show, which came on after the season premiere of RHONYC and was celebrating its 100th episode to boot. But, the red-headed star has stuck with the Zarindonna vibe, as evidenced by these pictures of Jill taken after her appearance on The Wendy Williams Show earlier today.
Jill’s dramatic makeover has lead to speculation by numerous sites (including this one) that the 47-year-old mother of one has had some plastic surgery done to her face. Jill addressed those rumors on the show telling Wendy Williams that she has not had any surgical procedures done on her face:
Jill does admit that she has had restilin injected in the side of her face by famed cosmetic guru Dr. Pat Wexler. She has also had botox under her chin and in her T-zone. That’s it! (She mentions that she actually visits Dr. Wexler on this season of The Real Housewives of New York City.)
Here are side-by-side before-and-after photos of Jill Zarin from today and from her appearance at Millions of Milkshakes in July of 2009:
Personally, I don’t see what all the hub-bub is about. Maybe it’s because I’m a huge Bruce Springsteen fan and have a thing for Jill’s rock and roll doppelganger Patti Scialfa, but I think Jill Zarin is super sexy! And although she’s had all those injections and what not that ladies of means have done, and her look has changed dramatically, I don’t think it appears unnatural. To be honest, I’m just disappointed she covered up her SkweezWear corset with that jacket!
Hang in there Jill. Everyone is on the verge of forgetting the whole Bethenny feud thing so just sit back and let someone else (apparently Sonja!) take the drama heat for a while. Meanwhile, keep on looking good!
Here’s one of our looooooooooooooong last look photos that should occupy your scroll wheel for a while:
As a bonus, here’s Jill playing a fun game with Wendy in which she has to guess the housewife Wendy is describing:
(How does someone not get into hot water for describing any person by yelling, “Chimp! Chimp! Chimp!”)
