Oh you 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.
Who in the Housewives franchise doesn't want to be the next Bethenny Frankel? I beg of you to find one woman schilling flavored box wine or t-shirts that doesn't consider the "end in sight' to be something Bethenny related. I'm just shocked that the newest member of the club who wants to one-up Bethenny is the original Housewife jump-off into legitimate business deals…that's right. I'm referring to NeNe Leakes.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast mate who has become more famous for her sit-com stints than her tacky one-liners on RHOA wants her own talk show. I guess it was only a matter of time, but gracious, Neenster! You have actually achieved more success commercially than all of your counterparts combined. Why are you now setting your sights on daytime television?
LuAnn de Lesseps has been in the spotlight a lot recently – for all the wrong reasons! The Real Housewives of New York star has been accused of cheating on camera with a very dashing young pirate. LuAnn emphatically denies that any sort of misdeeds took place, but sometimes the lady doth protests too much!
In a new interview with the Miami New Times, LuAnn discusses the alleged cheating and how this season has been different with Jill Zarin and Alex McCord out of the picture!
"I was really, really sad about that," LuAnn says of learning Jill was fired. "Jill is the one that got me on the show. I met Jill and she said, 'I think you would be perfect!' I really miss Jill and Kelly [Bensimon]. Alex and Simon [van Kempen] I could live without." The feelings must be mutual as Simon recently did an interview in which he openly wondered if LuAnn was a "liar" or a "slut!"
Jill Zarin really, really, really cannot let things go. Good lord – talk about trying to relive your glory days! Jill, who is the self-appointed expert of all things Real Housewives of New York, is still dishing on the show and is now claiming some of the new castmembers really regret signing on. One doesn’t need an “insider’s perspective” to recognize that!
In a new interview with Celebuzz, Jill claims: “I’m in contact with a few of the current girls. I’m not going to name names, but what I will say is that they are miserable and going through a really, really hard time.”
Well, I can sympathize – Pinot Singermakes me miserable and I don’t even have to personally interact with her. Jill continues, “They hear what other people think of them or say about them and it hurts.”
Aaaahhh…villains. Like in all things storytelling, no good tale works without a villain and a hero. And of course it's the villain who causes all the drama and gives the show its luster. Reality TV is the perfect place for a crazy, scheming, venomous nut job to crop up back stab, lie, and start trouble.
While the heroes get all the fans, the villains make the show. So here's to you, Reality TV villains. And without further ado, here is Reality Tea's list of Top 11 Reality TV Villains! There's just so many good ones.
