Jill Zarin On Being Fired From 'Real Housewives' and Her Reality TV Future (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 21st 2011 3:30PM
Jill Zarin may have been booted off the 'The Real Housewives of New York,' but from the sound of her interview on 'The Wendy Williams Show,' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox) she won't be off the reality TV circuit for long. Zarin talked with Williams about the experience of being fired from Bravo's 'Housewives' franchise and hinted at her next TV move.

Zarin had a hunch she might not be asked to return to the show, so she didn't allow herself to get emotional when she got the bad news. "I knew that this was coming. This was not a surprise. All the ladies got a phone call that other week that 3 were coming back and the other four weren't decided ... And then Saturday night I got a phone call from the producer saying the decision was final and they'd be putting out a press release in 5 minutes," she said, sounding emotional.

Kelly Bensimon of 'Real Housewives of New York City' on 'Good Day New York'Kelly Bensimon sounds like she wants to continue with 'Real Housewives of New York City,' despite any rumors to the contrary. When the good folks at 'Good Day New York' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox) posited that she seemed ready to leave the arguing and fighting behind and become her own breakout star, Bensimon said she's finally enjoying herself.

"No, I actually had a really good time with it this year," she said. "I mean, this was my opportunity to really, really show who I am and not be in a combative situation. It was two seasons of just constantly being berated all the time."

She may have more friends on the show if she signs up for another season. She said she had been suggesting people to the producers, and that it has gotten a little out of hand. "Every cocktail party that I go to people are like, 'I'm on the show,'" she said. "'I'm going to be on the show with you.'" More people to be crazy with.

'Real Housewives of New York' Star Sonja Morgan May Lose House, 'Hung' Experiments and More TV News

by Chris Harnick, posted Jul 5th 2011 12:00PM
Sonja MorganSonja Morgan's life (and financial woes) have been splashed on the front pages of tabloids and TV screens thanks to her role on 'Real Housewives of New York City,' but now the reality star is speaking out about her messy divorce and money troubles.

According to the New York Post, Morgan may lose her Upper East Side town house.

"I'm sure the world thinks, 'Sonja doesn't have to worry, she's got that husband there for her.' But I'm on my own," Sonja said.

Sonja claims in court papers that John Adams Morgan, her 80-year-old ex-husband, is refusing to pay her a $3 million divorce judgment and $300,000 in back alimony. Sonja also claims he has barred her from selling and visiting properties she co-owns with him in Colorado and France.

Last fall, Sonja filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Jill Zarin Tells Leah Remini She'd Make a Great 'Real Housewife' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jun 15th 2011 5:10PM
Leah Remini on 'The Real Housewives of New York City' on 'The Talk''The Real Housewives of New York City' is missing its most recognizable face this season without Bethenny Frankel. But that hasn't hurt the show, said Jill Zarin on Wednesday's 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). Zarin said she was happy for Frankel and all of her post-show success, and then got into the details that make the show popular, the interpersonal friction between the different housewives.

At the insistence of Leah Remini, Zarin addressed her troubles with fellow housewife Ramona Singer. "Have you sat her down, seriously, off camera and said, 'Ramona, come and watch the show and look how you look," said Remini. Zarin said she was having problems with Singer lying about small details, like whether Zarin owned the Ferrari she drove in season one.

Remini was so passionate about the feud that Holly Robinson Peete asked Zarin if she thought Remini would make a good addition to the cast. Zarin said she would, and Remini seemed open to the idea, saying she loves the show.

Bethenny and Jill Fight on 'Real Housewives of NYC' (VIDEO)

Bethenny and Jill Fight on 'Real Housewives of NYC' Bethenny fighting with her friends? Shocking. Apparently she and Jill were best friends who used to talk "five times a day." On last night's 'Real Housewives of New York City' (Thu., 10PM ET on BRAVO) the two argued -- over the phone -- about what ended their friendship.

"I will never forget what you said to me: 'You need to get a hobby'," says Jill. "Well guess what? My hobby was my husband got cancer... and the people who love me called my husband directly."

"I sent flowers," responds Bethenny. "I didn't realize your husband was that ill." Check out Jill's response.

Bethenny and LuAnn's Catfight on 'Real Housewives of NYC' (VIDEO)

Bethenny and LuAnn Fight on 'Real Housewives'A very public location didn't keep housewives Bethenny Frankel and LuAnn de Lesseps from engaging in a verbal smackdown. On last night's 'The Real Housewives of New York City' (Thu., 10PM ET on BRAVO), LuAnn tried to keep things nice -- briefly.

LuAnn: Let's talk about it later.
Bethenny: What, are we at church? We're at a fashion show.

Bethenny didn't hold back, saying, "I'm telling you to your face -- I don't like you, I don't trust you and I think you're a snake." And she wasn't finished.

What to Watch: March 25

'Real Housewives of New York City' (10PM, Bravo)
Who would have guessed that, aside from Simon's love of shopping, he and wife Alex would turn out to be the most down-to-earth pair amongst the 'Real Housewives of NYC' bunch this season? Simon and Alex embark on another spree tonight (and yes, we still find Simon a tad creepy, too), but that pales in comparison to the action the other women have going, which almost exclusively involves sniping at each other. Bethenny and LuAnn have it out at a fashion event (memo to 'Housewives': have you all noticed that nothing good ever seems to happen when you all go to fashion shows?), Ramona offends Kelly with questions about Kelly's boob job (or, as Ramona wants to know, is that jobs?) and a Jill-hosted function goes so badly that someone walks out. In a huge surprise, Bethenny and Kelly agree to try to get along, but we know for a fact that the truce doesn't last for long.

Real Housewives of New York City, Playboy ShootBringing new meaning to the phrase 'desperate housewives,' Kelly Killoren Bensimon asked her daughters what they thought about her doing a Playboy photo shoot on 'The Real Housewives of New York City' (Thu., 10PM ET on Bravo).

She got some interesting answers, including "you're a bad parent" and "to entertain people with your weirdness." Our favorite? "If you're not going to say something nice, talk to the boobies because the head's off duty." Out of the mouths of babes.

LuAnn and Ramona of 'Real Housewives of NYC' Battle on a Boat (VIDEO)

It wouldn't be 'The Real Housewives of New York City' (Thu., 11PM on Bravo) without some bickering between our favorite New York socialites.

After a divorce, LuAnn De Lesseps is no longer a countess. While attending a boat party, LuAnn got into a heated war of words with the bug-eyed hostess, Ramona Singer.

LuAnn got offended when Ramona's husband reportedly referred to her as "countless" and Ramona took issue with LuAnn's continued badgering.

Just another day on the yacht for these ladies.

'The Real Housewives of New York City' Return for Season 3

by Audrey Fine, posted Mar 5th 2010 9:45AM
Real Housewives of New York City"Ramona's way too freaking old to be wearing a bikini," declares Jill Zarin, rolling her eyes. (Truer words have never been uttered.) And so begins season three of 'The Real Housewives of New York City.'

The relatively uneventful (you might even say disappointing) premiere opened on a yacht Ramona had borrowed from a friend for a day of "girls only" fun. In true 'Housewives' fashion, the event quickly evolved into an emotional roller coaster as Ramona, who, after likening her newly shorn self to a "younger Cameron Diaz," laughed, cried, yelled and pouted while the boat putted along some Hamptons' waterway.

Noticeably absent was Bethenny, who, after a major falling out with Jill over what seems to be nothing more than a misunderstanding, was busy posing naked on a Manhattan rooftop for an "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" PETA ad. "I was BFFs with Bethenny" fumed Jill "but she didn't deserve me as a friend."

Bethenny Frankel Previews 'Real Housewives of New York City's' Explosive Season Premiere

by Kim Potts, posted Mar 4th 2010 12:00PM
It may be a cliché, but it's also completely true of the drama that unfolds in tonight's third season premiere of 'The Real Housewives of New York City' versus the hijinks of seasons past: You ain't seen nothing yet.

The opening moments of the premiere (11PM ET, Bravo) lull us into thinking housewives Ramona, Jill and Countess LuAnn are getting along, as they set sail on a little yachting excursion in the Hamptons, but we don't even make it half an hour into the episode before LuAnn starts a fight with Ramona about an allegedly rude exchange with Ramona's hubby, Mario.

We chatted with Bethenny Frankel this week about the new season, the new feuds and the new additions to her life, namely her fiancée Jason and baby-to-be; her upcoming 'Real Housewives' spin-off, 'Bethenny Gets Married'; and her thriving career as an author and cocktail entrepreneur.

'Real Housewives of New York City' (11PM, Bravo) season 3 premiere
Oh, it's on! The season opens with Jill and LuAnn joining Ramona on a Hamptons boating excursion, but they don't make it more than a few minutes into the episode before the claws come out and Jill is riffing on the inappropriateness of Ramona's skimpy bikini while LuAnn picks at Ramona for her rude hubby's behavior. And that's small stuff compared to the tension-filled get together the snooty Countess has with tell-it-like-it-is Bethenny, as LuAnn calls Bethenny out on some catty comments from last season, and Bethenny calls LuAnn, among other things, a drag queen. We also learn that one-time BFFs Bethenny and Jill are on the outs, and a sneak peek at the rest of the season shows Bethenny again butting heads with crazy Kelly. It's a good thing our favorite preggers, nekkid-posing, Skinny Girl chef Bethenny is getting her own spin-off series on Bravo ... this show isn't big enough for her and the other NYC divas.
