Jill Zarin appeared on Good Morning America earlier this week to talk about her firing as well.

“It was a little jolting,” Jill said. “It didn’t feel good. Nobody likes to not be asked back to the party.”

Alex McCord and Cindy Barshop (who was only featured last season) were also not invited back by Bravo.
