'Real Housewife' Jill Zarin to Get Her Own Spin-Off Show?

Jill Zarin'The Real Housewives of London,' anyone?

'Real Housewives of New York City' stalwart Jill Zarin's been hanging out in London recently with actress Ayda Field and her high profile husband, British rocker Robbie Williams, sparking rumors that Field and Zarin are mulling offers for a 'Real Housewives' spin-off show.

'The Daily Mail' reports that Zarin and husband Bobby are in town to visit the Williamses -- a.k.a. their new BFFs -- and that Zarin would be totally open to starring in a London spin-off of her hit TV show.

A source told 'The Daily Mail' that the Zarins love London so much that they're looking at homes in the $10-15 million range in tony neighborhoods like Knightsbridge and Belgravia.

The source added that "Jill thinks that a 'Real Housewives of London' would be really fabulous and may take the girls there next season on her show."

'Days of Our Lives' alum Field was previously rumored to be eyeing a spot on Season 2 of 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,' but that deal may have fallen through because of her husband's touring commitments. Williams is currently mid-way through Take That's 'Progress Live 2011' European tour.

So, could a new 'Housewives' outpost be on the cards? Back in March Bravo's Andy Cohen said Miami would be the last stop on the 'Housewives' train, but it's not easy to walk away from such a money-spinner.

Bravo's cash-cow launched in 2006 with 'The Real Housewives of Orange County' and parlayed its heady high-drama mix of Botox, boobs, blonds and bitchiness into a franchise with versions in New York City, New Jersey, Atlanta, Beverly Hills, D.C. and Miami.

However, 'The Real Housewives of D.C.' never really caught fire and was cancelled in April, making it the first installment not to receive a second season. The Miami version struggled with low ratings throughout its debut season and remains on the cancellation bubble. If it does return, it's a safe bet that it will have a radical cast shakeup.

Maybe Bravo could lure Cat Ommanney, the bitchy Brit from 'D.C.' back to the old country for a match-up with Zarin and Field ...

When contacted for comment about a possible spin-off show, Zarin's rep said, "London is one of Jill and Bobby's favourite cities and they are having a great time there!"

Jill is trying so hard to stay relevant and become a 'stah". Her big mouth and ego will keep her down. This woman is BORING and has ruined HONYC.
