few fans of Jill Zarin – it's a happy day! And you many detractors, many apologies for the news I am about to report. Jill Zarin will finally get her day in the sun! Jill will return to Bravo for one night only in an appearance on Watch What Happens Live where Andy Cohen will interview the notorious redhead about being fired! You know you'll be watching. I will be!
Next Monday, Jill will finally get some PR approved answers for why she was fired from Real Housewives of New York! “I feel like they killed me off and I didn’t get to say goodbye,” Jill confides to the NY Daily News.
“I’m really grateful even though it’s 15 months overdue,” she shares. “I’m going to ask him why I was fired.” Jill admits she's ready to let go, but she still has some questions.
Most specifically what led to the mass lay-offs. Jill reveals she's been told "poor focus group testing" for the fourth season reunion of the show was the main reason behind the network's decision. However, Jill blames poor editing for the very negative direction that season took.

Personally, I think people just wanted a change! We'd had three seasons of the same fights, same nonsense, and same negativity and it was the time to switch it up. Other series could benefit from similar redirections.
Shockingly Jill sort of admits her own demands may have had something to do with the network's decision to sever ties. “I think it’s also a signal to other cast member on other shows — don’t get greedy about money. We’ll fire anybody. No one’s too big for their show.”
And despite her negative experience with TV – and the year and a half break she took from the cameras, Jill is pulling a Kate Gosselin and begging to return to the spotlight. This time Jill is hoping she'll be able to land a solo show! Which is what she and her “more than a million social media followers” want!
Jill insists following her firing, other networks approached her with TV deals but she "wasn't ready" yet. “I was licking my wounds and needed to retreat,” Jill admits. “It really affected me, but now I’m strong and ready to go back and share my life with America.”
And what would her ideal show be about? Her favorite subject: JILL! She is hoping for a reality show that focuses on her family and “funny like ‘Seinfeld’ or ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ kind of show. Not like ‘Housewives.’ ”
As for what Jill thought of the first season of RHONY post-Jill? “I thought it was boring." Of course she did. Well, I liked it and I think viewers are coming around!
