Jill Zarin

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.”

This past weekend worlds collided with an awkward run in of former and present Real Housewives of New York stars. Ramona Singer and Kelly Bensimon were trapped at the same event! And everyone survived.

Both ladies – and their fashionably challenged selves – were spotted at Talent Resources’ Charity Polo Classic. Strangely, Dina Manzo also attended. “Earlier today at a polo match and ran into Dina Manzo,” Ramona tweeted, adding a photo of the two.

In other news, Ramona’s feud with Jill Zarin continues. Ramona is still upset about comments Jill made last season hinting that Mario may be unfaithful! Ramona claims the two exchanged words off camera over the incident, but she’s still not over it – despite Jill’s apology!

It’s not like we’ve had high expectations, but reality television has spawned some real fashion faux pas. And sometimes that’s about the only thing real on these shows!

At least all the bad looking clothes and crazy plastic surgery and on-screen and off-screen fashion antics gives us a reason to watch.

In honor of the very badly dressed and very badly altered, Reality Tea has composed a list of some of our most memorable fashion don’ts!

Andy Cohen has finally spilled the beans on the firings that shook Real Housewives of New York. No, he didn’t have a personal vendetta against Jill Zarin – although that’s what she’d like us all to think. And no, Bethenny Frankel didn’t influence the decisions – research did!

Say what?! Andy uses graphs and charts to cast the crazy?! According to a new interview with AdAge, Andy credited research for the reasoning behind the firings. “We snort up research like fine Colombian cocaine,” he admitted of the Bravomeisters approach to determining what viewers want.

“I love Twitter because it’s a live focus group,” said Andy, explaining that one reason certain cast members of RHONY were let go was because of negative feedback about them on social media.

Jill Zarin has been working overtime trying to convince Bravo that she deserves to return to Real Housewives of New York, but sadly it’s not working.

Bravo released a statement to PEOPLE announcing that Jill isn’t going to be gracing our screens as a Housewife anytime soon. “We wish Jill the best, but there is no consideration of her returning to the series,” a Bravo spokesperson remarked.

Well there you have it! Next!

ARE YOU HAPPY OR SAD THAT JILL WON’T BE RETURNING TO RHONY?

If there’s one thing we know for certain, it’s that reality TV and BFF-hood don’t mix. Repeat: Do not come on a reality show with your BFFL and expect it to be buddy-buddy 4 eva. It seems the second the cameras start rolling and the editing kicks in – along with the drinks and the contracts stipulating drama, fights, and backstabbing, the individual interviews and the out-famewhoring and jealousy – these long-time friendships melt faster than an ice cube in a toaster.

Friendship divorces have come to dominate reality TV and sadly it was often those friendships that got us hooked on the show in the first place. When a friendship divorce happens, often it leaves the fans as divided as the main characters.

So here’s to the used-to-be friends and their friendship divorces. So sorry it didn’t work out – but sometimes one person’s loss is another’s gain! Big things can come from public relationship break-ups.

Reality Tea has compiled a list of some of our most memorable friendship divorces.

Last week Bethenny Frankel addressed her feelings on Real Housewives of New York. The newly minted talk show host admits that she occassionally tunes into the show that made her a household name and that she wishes nothing but the best for former co-star nemesis Kelly Bensimon.

“I wish Jill [Zarin] the best. I wish Kelly the best,” Bethenny told the audience. “Honestly, it was an experience that I’ll never forget and the year with the first five of us is definitely very nostalgic.” A video of Bethenny discussing her time on RHONY is below.

Well, because Kelly is still apparently very concerned about Bethenny and because she really doesn’t have anything else going on wants to keep her name in the press, she is responding to Bethenny’s comment with some niceties of her own.
