Jill Zarin

Jill Zarin

Real Housewives of New York’s Jill Zarin was an original cast member and stayed on for four seasons.  She chose to leave at the time, but has given clear indications that she wants to return.  Viewers saw Jill on the periphery of last week’s episode, trying to charm her way into the group.

The main target was Dorinda Medley, who was having none of it according to Jill.  Perhaps it was not the best time to charm Dorinda.  She was in fine form at Luann de Lesseps Halloween party, seemingly taking over as hostess with a very passive-aggressive toast.  Maybe it wasn’t the best night for Jill to ingratiate herself to Dorinda, as Dorinda was otherwise occupied with attacking  Ramona Singer.

Real Housewives Of New York Halloween

Well, Real Housewives Of New York is back with a vengeance! Did you guys miss them? More importantly did you miss me? Cause I haven’t written a Housewives recap in about a month and I’m worried I’ve lost my touch. Be kind, be gentle — love me. Treat me like production treated Jill Zarin last night.

Anyway, I don’t know if I like the choppy editing and zoom confessionals with bad audio, although I did love how Leah McSweeney just went full quarantine vibes by wearing a sweatsuit.

Speaking of Leah she goes out to dinner in China Town with her baby daddy Rob and their daughter Kier. This is so Leah can emphatically prove over and over again that she’s a real legit New Yorker, not some uptight upper east side wannabe maven.

Queer Eye Star Bobby Berk Says Real Housewives Of New York Star Stole From Him

This story has been circulating all weekend, but some new details have come to light. But, let’s take it from the top for anyone who needs to catch up. Queer Eye star Bobby Berk is calling out a Real Housewives of New York cast member for bad behavior.

He accuses the woman of stealing from him before he became a reality star himself. He doesn’t name the New York Housewife who did him wrong, but he did share a lot of details that help narrow down the possibilities.

Jill Zarin

Well this certainly came out of nowhere. Jill Zarin has never been one to keep her opinions to herself. However, she usually sticks to gossip related to her own Housewives franchise.

For some reason, the Real Housewives of New York City OG is now offering some unsolicited marital advice to one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In a new interview, Jill opened up about how reality TV affects relationships and for some reason brought Kyle Richards‘ marriage into the equation.

Elyse Slaine Claps Back With Screenshots After Ramona Singer Said She Brings Nothing To Real Housewives Of New York

Real Housewives of New York fans know that Ramona Singer can be (very) harsh, but recently she said what a lot of people have been thinking. Ramona remarked that Elyse Slaine doesn’t bring much to the mix, which is true so far. She also said that Elyse isn’t the best fit for the show. Again, that’s true so far. However, to be fair, we just haven’t seen enough of Elyse to make a full assessment.

But, that’s kind of the point though, isn’t it? We haven’t learned a single thing about Elyse, yet here she is at events with zero introduction and zero backstory. All we know is that she’s listed as “Ramona’s Friend” when she pops up. That seems rather ironic now though. With a friend like Ramona, who needs enemies?

Ramona Singer Predicts Bethenny Frankel Won’t Return To Real Housewives Of New York City, Says Jill Zarin “Just Doesn’t Gel” With The Cast Anymore

There’s no denying The Real Housewives of New York City has been different this season without Bethenny Frankel. The Skinnygirl founder’s abrupt exit as filming began on Season 12 left the rest of the Housewives totally blindsided.

Of course, Ramona Singer has had no shortage of opinions about her former castmate leaving the show (for a second time). In a new interview, the OG opened up about whether she thinks Bethenny is really done with RHONY for good and managed to shade former OG Jill Zarin in the process.

#WeSayThanks To Reality Stars Giving Back During Coronavirus

Reality Tea is proud to announce that we’re collaborating with our fellow Evolve Media LLC websites for #WeSayThanks. This is campaign to thank and raise money for essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

#WeSayThanks coincides with Police Week, Public Works Week, and National Medical Services Week. We have also created a limited-edition T-shirt, with the promise to donate $5 from each sale to charities that support our essential workers and their families during this difficult time.

#WeSayThanks

We understand that the pandemic has affected everyone in some way or another. Charity should be about contributing what you are comfortable with and able to do. It is completely understood that not all of our readers are in the market for a philanthropic t-shirt. That is completely OK! Whether or not you purchase a shirt, we would love it if you joined our initiative by telling us who you are thankful for in the comments section of this article or on Twitter with the hashtag #WeSayThanks. A simple “thanks” goes a long way.

We would also like to thank some reality TV stars who have given back during the coronavirus pandemic. And, of course, we want to thank everyone who has given their time and money during this time, especially those who are not in the public eye. We appreciate you!

Elyse Slaine Real Housewives of New York RHONY

Elyse Slaine is a bit of a mystery on this season of Real Housewives of New York City. She just showed up one day with very little explanation as to who she is or what she is doing there.  She appears in almost every group scene with no mention as to who actually invited her. According to Elyse, that is because she was never meant to be on the show, she really did just show up one day to film with Ramona Singer. Production liked her and asked her to keep showing up. That explains why her introduction has been so awkward, but it still makes her come off as sort of creepy. She is mostly just there, silently staring in the background, kind of like some judgy Upper East Side Morticia Adams.

Anytime Elyse does speak, she talks very quietly and calmly, and almost always states the most rational opinion. It is as though she is doing her best to come across as the voice of reason. What she is really saying is, “Please do not think that I am crazy like these women, listen to how calm I am.” And she definitely seems like a smart, put-together woman. But just the fact that she has been friends with Ramona for years implies that there must be some cray cray going on behind her sleek facade. Now she is even claiming that she introduced OG cast members Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel.
