New job, same problems! I can see that Jill Zarin has definitely turned over a new leaf – and is taking her professionalism to her next gig! On her very first day hosting a segment for GMA spinoff, Good Afternoon American, Jill chose to make it nasty and personal by taking a dig at Ramona Singer.
Now a bigger person than I might tsk tsk and claim Jill is still vengeful over her firing and needs to let it go, but I LOVE the drama and I think it’s hilarious that Jill has not changed one bit. Don’t you ever Jill – we like you just the way you are; crazy, venomous, and a total instigator!
“We’ve always had this kind of awkward relationship, embarrassing relationship, really,” Jill said of her former Real Housewives of New York nemesis. “So I kind of like watching her squirm a little bit this season.”

Jill also claims no one even showed up to Ramona‘s Learning Annex speech, which was shown on last week’s episode! Ouch. “Instead of her worrying about how high the table was, I would have been downstairs giving chocolate chip cookies to everyone on the street to get upstairs to fill those seats!”
As for Ramona‘s belief that she’s a “successful business woman,” Jill calls her “delusional.”
Well, Ramona certainly wasn’t going to let that one roll off her back! “It’s sad she’s still using me to stay in the limelight,” Ramona told Wetpaint. “She needs to let go of the past and move on with her life.”
And Ramona still insists she felt “honored” to speak at the Learning Annex. “Successful, notable business people like Donald Trump and Russell Simmons have spoken there. Jill has never been asked, so I think it’s definitely a case of sour grapes.”
Ramona also dismisses the allegation that no one attended. She’s very popular, you know. “The size of the average Learning Annex class is 20 to 40 people. When you bring in a celebrity, the numbers start at about 50. I had about 150 people attend and they all pre-registered.”
“So we KNEW who was coming. We didn’t expect more! And what Jill said about moving seats around is ridiculous.” She must have been promising free pinot or they came for curiosity’s sake.
A clip of Jill‘s first day at GAA is below!
“When I’m not filming, I like to spend time with the friends I don’t film with, and spend more time on my businesses and finances and personal affairs,” the toaster oven impresario admitted. “And, of course, more Mommy-and-me time with my daughter, Quincy.”
Sonja also announced that she is working very hard on an upcoming lifestyle book, which started out as a only a toaster oven cookbook.
“I am rewriting it to be more of a lifestyle book,” she explained. “Through Sonja Home Innovative Living, I will also include recipes.” Well, I would definitely read that – and review it for Reality Tea’s Booze ‘N Book Club!
