Now that Bethenny Frankel has left the Real Housewives of New York it seems that Jill Zarin is eyeing a full-time return to the show.
In a new interview with HollywoodLife, Jill teased about a possible return to RHONY for season 12.
“You’ll have to watch and see what happens,” she hinted when asked if fans would see her on RHONY again soon.
She continued, “I’ve been working really hard on my Jill Zarin décor brand and I’ve been focusing a lot of my time designing like today I am literally working on my outdoor collection for next summer. I’ll be doing bedding and towels; bedding, bath and kitchen items. I got a nice new apartment, in midtown.”
When asked if she would replace Bethenny on RHONY, if Bravo asked, Jill, said: “I will cross that bridge if it happens. I’m open to all opportunities that come to me. I always say, say yes to everything; Or, you know, at least try to do everything and if it would work, if it could work out, sure.”
One of the major reasons Jill is ready to return to the drama on RHONY is because of her friendships with many of the Housewives including Luann de Lesseps.
“I’m still very close with Luann and some of the other girls, so there’s no reason not to,” she continued. “So, we just have to see what happens.”
Jill also said she would like to return to RHONY because it’s what the fans want.
“If for anything, I would do it for fans because they’re so good to me. You know? So, I wouldn’t mind sharing some of my life,” she said. “I think I’m in a good place and I think a lot of people can relate to that… not a lot of people, God forbid, nobody should know, but people can relate to changes in life, you know, kids moving out, things like that being it’s a housewife show, and I’m open to anything, especially if the fans wanted it.”
However, it seems that Jill would rather return in a limited role than be a full-time Housewife.
“I’d rather, you know, I like the way it was last year,” she admitted. “And I liked it, you know, the last two years I actually did something on the show. The last couple years. And it was fun. I’m open to — Yeah definitely. Friend role.”
