Jill Zarin may be one of the original housewives of The Real Housewives of New York, but her antics have not been forgotten by viewers. Jill left the show after the fourth season, and the show took a brand new turn with lots of new wives and few older faces. But Zarin was known for one thing: her friendship with Bethenny Frankel. And since they both left the show, it hasn’t been the same.
And while Bethenny is back on The Real Housewives of New York, Jill Zarin is still working on her family business. And she recently starred in a new movie called Night of the Wild, where she stars alongside Kelly Rutherford from Gossip Girl and actress Tristin Mays from Vampire Diaries. However, many are wondering if Zarin will ever come back to The Real Housewives of New York.
According to a new report, Jill Zarin was left out of the 100th episode special for The Real Housewives of New York. And while many of her fans were disappointed, Jill didn’t think too much about it. In fact, Zarin is planning her big return to Bravo and will soon sit down with Andy Cohen for an interview.
“I was surprised that there was so much drama in the press surrounding the anniversary special. In truth, there wasn’t any drama at all. I was in the Hamptons and committed to my charity events and taking care of Bobby as we fight his cancer and I couldn’t attend. I sent a lovely note wishing everyone the best and it was really as simple as that. In fact, I’ll be on Watch What Happens Live next Thursday to chat with Andy about my new film, and it will be a really fun appearance. I’ll be making a big announcement, so I hope everyone tunes in to Watch What Happens Live,” Jill revealed.
Could she be announcing her return to The Real Housewives of New York? It is possible. Jill Zarin reveals that she holds no grudges against her former best friend and that she wants to live in the moment. What does that mean?
“I’m all about living in the present and moving forward. We’ve all made mistakes, and I recognize mine, I own them, and sincerely apologize,” Jill explains, adding, “Reality TV can be difficult for those of us that weren’t really aware of what we were getting ourselves into, it’s more overwhelming than meets the eye. Despite the media driven ‘feud,’ no feuds really exist between my former co-stars and I; and I truly wish everyone the best.”
One has to wonder if Bethenny Frankel feels the same way about Jill. Of course, Zarin leaked stories to the press about her former friend, and the two had trouble trusting one another. Bethenny didn’t want a friend leaking stories to the press about her. But Jill thinks it could be fun returning to the show and reveals she has nothing really holding her back.
“In retrospect, I view the show differently now. Having been through the process, I think if I were to return, it would be a lot more fun,” Jill Zarin hints, adding, “At this stage, I am focused on my acting career, and with my new film premiering on Saturday, another film in development, and a new scripted television series that I start filming next year, life is good, I’m happy, in a great place, and will always be grateful to Bravo.”
One has to wonder if Jill Zarin’s big announcement could have anything to do with returning to The Real Housewives of New York. It is possible that she could return, as Bethenny Frankel has returned to the show, and Sheree Whitfield is returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
