Jill Zarin's 'Housewives' Return Apparently Unreal
Report: Pink-slipped star possibly planting fake tabloid rumors
Pink-slipped Jill Zarin could be telling tall tales about being asked back to "The Real Housewives of New York City."
According to tabloid truth tracker GossipCop.com, a report in the current OK! Magazine announcing her possible return is false and may actually have been planted by Zarin.
The OK! report, available on newsstands only, quotes one "show insider" saying that Bravo "really wants to add Jill back" due to low ratings, and another saying that "it would take a lot of groveling and a hell of a lot of money" for that to happen.
However, a legitimate Bravo insider says there is "no truth" to the report, nor the claim Zarin made in January to RadarOnline that another "show insider" asked her back and she declined.
Zarin -- who was replaced last fall, along with fellow cast members Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop -- seems to have had a hard time adjusting to the boot imprint on her butt. On June 12, she posted an entry on her personal blog suggesting that her fans might want to try the same type of letter-writing campaign that once brought actor Patrick Duffy's Bobby Ewing character back from the dead on "Dallas."
"I am certainly not advocating anything," Zarin wrote, "just thinking of all the scenarios out loud."
"The Real Housewives of New York City" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
my quess as to why there are low ratings with this season is because alex (and of course simon) was let go and luann is still there.. i caught one of the reruns and luann was being her snitty self and of course causing trouble like always..... i will never watch this show again or any of the other housewive shows........ maybe beverly hill, should it come back....... otherwise they made a big mistake leaving luann and removing alex..... jill, yuk!!!! im glad shes gone, now if we can get her off of HSN,!!!!
