It’s been known for awhile, but now it’s confirmed: Jill Zarin will not appear again on The Real Housewives of New York City.
Zarin herself commented on her exit last September, while rumors then surfaced that Ramona Singer was responsible for the ousting. But Bravo has finally released a statement of its own on the matter, stating for the record:
“We wish Jill the best, but there is no consideration of her returning to the series.
The network, of course, overhauled this franchise’s cast with Heather Thomson, Carole Radziwill and Aviva Drescher heading into its fifth season.

While Ramona Singer is the face of The Real Housewives of New York City’ Jill Zarin also has fans. But reports claim the popular socialite is considering leaving the show.
Jill, 47, and her husband, Bobby were spied at the Savanna’s restaurant in Southampton, New York where he was heard telling Jill she should consider quitting after the run-in with Ramona over her friend’s alleged fondness for drink.
“Bobby made it clear it was Jill’s decision, but he couldn’t understand what she’d gain from returning for a fifth season,” a friend explains. “Her daughter’s at college and it’s time to takeMore >
Let the casting speculation begin!
Just days after The Real Housewives of New York City wrapped up another drama-filled season, earning a total of negative 14 points in the process from THG, Jill Zarin teased that she might not return to the Bravo franchise.
“The damage is done,” Zarin told People. “I don’t know if I can film with these girls.”
Why might Zarin exit the series that made her famous? She cites the feud viewers witnessed during the reunion, where Ramona Singer was “hitting below the belt,” according to Jill.More >
The Real Housewives of New York may be on a break but the producers don’t seem to have picked up the memo. Kathy Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb had two stars, Ramona Singer and Jill Zarin on the Today show yesterday and it was nearly a French manicured fist fight.
In the past Jill has dropped hints about Ramona’s fondness for drinking, and Ramona’s clearly become tired of it.
“She keeps inferring I have a drinking problem,” Singer told the hosts. “You girls like to have a drink now and then, so do I.”
To even the score Ramona then said it was in fact Zarin who couldn’t put down a bottle. JillMore >
So, did you see it? Last night ‘The Real Housewives of New York’ were at their most catty and Andy Cohen couldn’t keep order. The whole season was flavored with sarcastic tweets and snide insults about drag queens, but spies say the wives behavior off-stage is so bad they may not return.
“Things have got so bad producers are worried this cast can no longer film together,” one spy shares. “The level of hatred is so high, it’s toxic and it doesn’t make for good TV drama – it’s just petty and sad.”
For example, during the season Jill Zarin was picked out by a blogger as the worst of the bunch,More >
The loss of Amy Winehouse yesterday at just 27 hit everyone hard, but her friends and fellow stars seem crushed by the news. Within minutes of reports of her death filtering out the Twitter world lit up with eulogies and regrets:
“I cant even breathe, I’m crying so hard,” wrote Amy’s friend, Kelly Osbourne. “I just lost one of my best friends. I love you forever, Amy and will never forget the real you!”
Mark Ronson, who produced ‘Back to Black’ was also moved; “She was my musical soulmate & like a sister to me. This is one of the saddest days of my life.”More >
Was there a contest this week between The Real Housewives of New York City to see who could be the biggest b!tch? Watching it, you’d think so!
Let’s run down all the sniping, back stabbing, and name calling in THG’s +/- review:
Luann was pitching her latest music video. As if the last one wasn’t bad enough. She wanted the video to exude class and elegance, but it came off as amateurish silliness. Minus 10 for subjecting me to another song from the Countess.
Luann wanted all of the Housewives to appear in her video but not everyone wanted to play. Ramona and Luann had a sit down whereMore >
I hate to sound like Kelly, but Simon is so weird. He’s always creeped me out and this installment of The Real Housewives of New York City was no exception. So let’s recap everyone’s quirks in our patented +/- review, shall we?
Cindy throws a party to launch her new wax and body bejeweling kits. Everyone gets into the act, but PLUS 10 for Brad going all out with a bejeweled tramp stamp. No, we haven’t gotten to the weird part yet.
That takes place when Simon finds Jill. First, he sits down so close he’s practically feeling her up. MINUS 5 for already making me uncomfortable. Then heMore >
Be it in Morocco or New York, the Real Housewives can’t stay out of trouble or each other’s business. Let’s recap their ups and downs with our +/- review!
On her return from Morocco, Ramona sets up a serious date night. Negligee, rose petals, the works but Mario leaves her waiting which gets a Minus 5.
Ramona tells him about the fortune teller. Wow, that took some guts. Of course he denies that there’s anyone else and hey, we have no proof that there is but Mario just comes off sleazy to me. Then Ramona gives him a foot massage. Did anyone else feel like she was trying too hard?
This week on The Real Housewives of New York City, the Moroccan adventure began and there seemed to be a contest for who could be the ugliest American.
Join THG for its +/- recap, with points awarded for the worst behavior! Yes, since these are the Real Housewives, inappropriate and ridiculous are positive …
The first group headed to Morocco included Luann, Jill, Kelly, and Cindy. The four behaved themselves, more or less and arriving without incident. Minus 5 each.
Luann made certain the staff greeted her properly as Countess de Lesseps. Oh, that Countess title just never gets old. PlusMore >
It’s just Jill. It’s just Ramona. It’s just the housewives at their bitchy best.
At the launch party for her new wine, Ramona can’t stop screeching at Jill. Jill walking away does nothing to halt her tirade. Ramona can’t seem to stop herself.
Perhaps she needs to drink a little more of her own wine or more than likely, she’s had way to much of it.
Earlier, Ramona has a photo shoot. She feels her picture needs to grace the cover of her products. I’m shocked.
Ramona playing model is always downright frightening. Her “sexy eyes” are just plain creepy. Then an assistant tells her she looksMore >
It’s all about ME.
That’s the theme as Sonja takes center stage. So, the Marriage Equality of New York (MENY) march asks Sonja to be the Grand Marshall? Is she really that big of a draw?
I mean I know I’m not their target audience but still, Sonja’s a gay icon?
Oh, and in case you missed it, it’s Sonja Morgan’s special day.
