Do you think former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin ever really listens to what is coming out of her mouth?  I don't mean that to sound ugly, but I honestly don't think she hears herself…or if she does, she has to be one of the most self-confident, yet always victimized, women in reality show history.  It's almost comical.

Perhaps I shouldn't have watched her again on a Watch What Happens Live rerun, but I'll admit I got sucked into it.  It's as if Jill was watching an entirely different show than the rest of us!  When you read her recent interview after the jump, you'll get an even better taste of what I mean.  She touts Kim Kardashian's work ethic (she's almost as hard-working as Jill herself!), and pretty much poo poos poor people…or at least people who like to shop at K-Mart.  Perhaps she's never seen some of Sofia Vergara's line!


Speaking with the Huffington Post, Jill is quick to fill us in on all things…well, Jill.  She doesn't like cheap, and she's never been mean, and she makes up with people in her dreams who aren't forgiving enough to make up with her in real life.  It's quite a fun read.  Check out an excerpt of her chat below:

If you were on death row, what would your last meal be?

Pinkberry, chocolate. However, as a carnivore, it would probably be Peter Luger, with home fries.

How did you get on death row?

I killed one of the “Housewives.”

What shows are always on your DVR?

“Law & Order,” almost every reality show, “Judge Judy,” “Dr. Phil.” I also love the show with Kerry Washington, "Scandal." And I love Piper Perabo on that USA show "Covert Affairs." She’s unbelievable.

What's your dating deal-breaker?

I hate cheap.

What's your go-to excuse?

Someone gave me one and I never really used it, but “I have a conflict.”

What's one thing you do when you're alone that you wouldn't do in front of someone else?

What I used to do was pull out all my in-grown hairs, but I don’t get them anymore. And probably use a sex toy.

If failure weren't an option, what's one thing you would do?

I’m doing it. I’m living the dream. I don't think there's anything I wanted to do that I'm not doing.

What's on your nightstand?

Diet Coke, a book by the women who started Gilt Groupe. I love reading books about successful business people–biographies and success stories, business books. But I did finish “50 Shades of Grey” –all three — in three days. My jewelry, watch, pens, remote control — all on my side of the bed.

What would people be surprised to know you've never done?

I don’t know if they’d be surprised, but I’ve never done heroin. I’ve never jumped out of a plane, nor do I want to. I’ve never skied double diamond. I’ve never been to the North or South Pole, and I want to go. I’ve never been to China or India. I’ve never been on an African safari. Those are all on my bucket list.

What's one item that's always in your refrigerator?

Orange juice. Bobby can’t live without it. And Diet Coke. I can’t live without it.

If you could ask Kim Kardashian any question, what would it be?

Who? Just kidding! I actually respect their success and how hard they work. I would ask, do you resent the fact that people don’t give you credit for how hard you work? Because I know how hard they work. In spite of being known for doing nothing, it’s far from it. Does she resent that, that she doesn’t get appreciated for what she’s accomplished?

If you could rewrite your high school yearbook quote, what would it be?

My college yearbook said “Least likely to hear the following words said: 'Attention, Kmart Shoppers! Blue Light Special.'” If I could rewrite it, it would be “most likely to succeed.”

What happens in your recurring dream?

The people I have conflict with, I make up with. When I have a conflict with someone, it comes back in my dreams and it really bothers me. I'm not going to mention names, but I think you know what I’m talking about.

When do you lose your temper?

When people don’t think that I’m right. And I’m always right.

What do you think of Honey Boo Boo?

I think that people who want to watch that show for entertainment shows you how our society has been dumbed down. I actually think she has a great mother who’s trying to keep her as grounded as possible, considering the circus that surrounds them. I think the mother’s doing a really good job of keeping her in school and not letting it get to her head, from what I’ve heard.

What’s the dumbest thing you’ve read about yourself?

That I’m mean. I’m the opposite of mean.

What’s the best gift Bobby’s given you?

I just got it. A Cartier diamond watch. He bought it for me for my birthday, November 30.

I mean, seriously?  I love her comments about Here Comes Honey Boo Boo dumbing down our society.  I don't think RHONY is going to win any MENSA awards.  Jill is so funny.
