There’s no denying that season 3 of The Real Housewives of New York City was a rough one for Jill Zarin. After losing her BFF, Bethenny Frankel, and a rocky relationship with both Ramona Singer and Alex McCord, Zarin reveals that she didn’t plan on returning to the Bravo reality series for season 4. So why did she decide to stay? Read on to find out!
“There’s always a Housewife or Housewives who ‘take a hit,’ as I like to call it,” Jill Zarin told the New York Daily News.
After watching the end of her friendship with former co-star and BFF, Bethenny Frankel, on the small screen, and being on the receiving end of a tongue lashing from both Ramona Singer and Alex McCord on the Real Housewives of New York City Reunion Special, Zarin admits that she wasn’t in any rush to get back into the ring for season 4.
“I was ganged up on by Alex [McCord], Bethenny [Frankel], and Ramona [Singer],” said Jill. “It’s so last year and it’s so over that I don’t want to talk about it anymore… But let me tell you, it’s hard to fight three against one,” she added. “One-on-one is one thing. Three on one, not so even.”
Despite her troubles with Bethenny Frankel, who’s no longer on the show, and the other cast members, Jill says that she had a change of heart. And she has one person to thank for that.
“I asked my husband, Bobby, ‘What should I do?’ And he said, ‘Don’t leave,’” shares Zarin. “My family felt that I wasn’t portrayed accurately, that I needed to come back, to have another round at it. Then, if I wanted to leave, I leave with my head held high.”
In season 4 of The Real Housewives of New York, Jill Zarin buddies up with Bethenny Frankel’s replacement, Cindy Barshop, who she credits for helping her get her “mojo” back.
Fans will also see Jill in the process of developing her shapeware line, Skweez Couture, which will be in stores this summer.
As for her future on the show, that’s not certain. But for now, Jill says she has no regrets.
“I’m proud to be a Real Housewife,” says Zarin. “I would never be less than proud of doing something I chose to do.”
