Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin certainly leads a charmed life. How has the reality show changed things?

“I’ve met a lot more people,” she tells me. “Everybody is so friendly. I’m greeted with a smile – not that I wasn’t before – but more so. I just feel that the planet is a happier place. I’ve gotten so much fanmail to my personal e-mail outside of Bravo, and I answer every single email I get. It takes me up to six hours a day.”

The mother of one, who calls her hubby “my gift from God,” reveals her tips for glamming it up.

“When I go out at night, I love to put on fake eyelashes,” she tells me. “I think it glams up.” She’s also a fan of exfoliant so she doesn’t need as many facials.
