Luann de Lesseps really doesn’t care if viewers like her, does she? The Countess recently announced that she’d love to see the return of Jill Zarin on Real Housewives Of New York! I cannot wait to hear what Luann’s friend Bethenny Frankel has to say about this… Thankfully, there are other names being considered as the next Real Housewife.
With the overwhelming success of Bethenny’s return to Real Housewives Of New York, Luann was recently asked what other former Housewife she’d like to see comeback. The first name out of Luann’s mouth: Jill! ““I love Jill, so I’d love to bring Jill back, selfishly,”quipped Luann.

Of course we all know there’s no way Andy Cohen will allow a return of the Jillusional! But what are you thinking even putting that out there, Luann?!
JILL RETURNS TO WWHL – AND SECRETLY RECORDS IT!
In fairness to Lu, she was answering the question via the red carpet during fashion week and Jill was present at the same event. Maybe she just didn’t want to break the girl code?
Luann also dished on winning a Bravo Award for best quote. The Countess didn’t plan to utter the infamous “Be cool, don’t be all uncool,” but she was so shocked by Heather Thomson‘s behavior it just came spilling out. “This person in particular was such a good friend that, you know, I was totally blown away,” Luann explains to OK! Magazine.
While Lu may have lost a friend or two in the process of labeling people ‘uncool’ – it was a sacrifice worth making! The Countess believes her song ‘Girl Code,’ which accompanies the notorious quote, was able to spread a message of friendship! “It’s the perfect thing for me to get out to women that you don’t cross the line.”

Moving on – with a vacancy over at RHONY HQ, Bravo is rushing to fill it! Rumors are circulating that Julianne Wainstein, or Jules as she is called, is being considered as a replacement for Heather.
Jules, formerly Julianne Forrest, is married to Michael Wainstein, an successful investor who founded the Private Capital Group. They tied the knot in 2008. Jules came to the producers attention via Dorinda Medley, who counts her as a friend. Dorinda has all sortsa casting ideas! Jules and her successful hubby also live in Tribeca, which makes them a neighbor of Bethenny.
However Jules isn’t just a trophy wife! She’s an event planner and business woman, who is known for having a nasty breakup with her former partners Derek and Daniel Koch. A friend tells Page Six that the half-Japanese Connecticut-native would be a great addition to the cast, because, “She’s pretty. She’s fun. She parties.” Sounds like a perfect mix. She’s also rich and well-connected!
However, nothing is set in stone just yet – a production source reveals that Bravo is casting a wide-net to cast the perfect Housewife. “They talk to a lot of people.”
Page Six also details that Kristen Taekman is definitely back next season after the drama over Josh’s Ashley Madison account.
