After admittedly taking things to heart during her days on The Real Housewives of New York City, Jill Zarin decided to go into filming on Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip with a much different mindset.

"It's great," Zarin told OK! Magazine of the Peacock series on July 18. "But I'm not as engaged as I used to be."

"I now put all those news alerts into my spam," Zarin admitted.

Zarin spoke to the outlet during a luncheon she hosted in the Hamptons this past weekend.

"I used to get hundreds of them a day and it would either make me happy or sad or whatever. I don't really see them now unless I'm looking," Zarin continued of the backlash she received during her time on The Real Housewives of New York City.

After revealing the luncheon was held in honor of Bobby Zarin, who died from cancer in January 2018, Zarin said the 2022 event was the first time in two years that she was able to host the Hamptons festivities.

"We miss him [Bobby] terribly and after he passed, I didn't want to really do it. I did it one more time. But it wasn't the same. Then we took a year off and then the pandemic happened," she revealed.

"As long as someone does all the heavy lifting, I'll invite all the people and make it happen," she added.
