Is Jill Zarin getting ready to be front and center again as a main cast member on The Real Housewives of New York City? Rumors swirled that she would be replacing Carole Radziwill, who recently revealed that she won't be returning to the reality television franchise, however she shut those down at an event in The Hamptons on Saturday.
Carole, who has been with RHONY since season 5, made the shocking announcement that she won't be returning to the show last week. “After six seasons on Bravo’s RHONY, I have decided to return to what I do best — journalism and producing,” she said in a statement to The Daily Dish. “I am sure this does not come as a surprise to any of the viewers, all of whom have been supportive, encouraging, and kind.”
The author and journalist also posted a cryptic quote on Instagram, writing, "Didn't change, just learned."
So does this mean that Jill will be joining RHONY full time again? She was part of the main cast for the first four seasons of the show alongside Luann De Lesseps, Alex McCord and Ramona Singer before she got the axe.
According to Jill, the rumors of that happening are false, as she spoke out about them during a press conference at her sixth annual luxury luncheon, which was held at Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton in honor of her late husband Bobby.
“It’s not true,” she said. When asked if she would ever come back full-time, Jill said that she would "as a friend." She also added, "They haven't called."
