Jill Zarin has some very strong opinions about Bravo’s plans to reboot the Real Housewives of New York for season 14 and beyond, especially when it comes to casting.
“Listen, I don’t think they could do it without Ramona. They need Ramona. They need Luann, and I think they need me,” Jill told Showbiz Cheatsheet. Jill notes that she hasn’t been asked back to RHONY but is open to the possibility.
She then admitted that she no longer speaks to her former BFF, Bethenny Frankel, and believes the RHONY cast has “had it” with her.
Jill also quipped that she doesn’t believe Bravo should bring Bethenny back to the show.
“I don’t talk to her, and I don’t think she should come back,” Jill said. “I think that she’s said too many horrible things about the show and the network. She called it napalm. I mean, they’ll pay a fortune to come back. And basically, the job would be to be mean and cutting to all the girls and make them all look bad. And I think the girls have had it.”
Meanwhile, Bethenny recently revealed on her podcast, Just B With Bethenny, what it would take for her to return to RHONY.
“Give me real and authentic, somewhat authentic,” she said. “But if could there be some element of authenticity that I could cling onto and not feel like I’m gonna go shoot for four months and make a f***ton of money.”
“I miss the humor,” she confessed. “Even right now, it’s a different type of outlook; it’s a different type of humor that I miss. It’s running commentary. You can be judgmental. Humor always wins, with the exception of saying something inappropriate or racist or off-color or something politically incorrect. Correct humor wins.”
