You'll have to wait a few more days to hear Jill Zarin get all sorts of interrogative on Andy Cohen during a special Watch What Happens Live (airing Monday, 10/15), in which she questions the Bravo exec on why she was fired and how the decision was made. For now though, you can rest easy with this little interview Jill did giving a bit of insight into what her fans can expect.
Much like in the preview clip we showed you earlier this week, Jill says in an interview with TooFab that her firing "felt like it was a death" and that she "wanted a chance to say goodbye to the fans because I didn’t know if I’d ever be on television again. I never had that chance until now." She also stands firmly on the side of believing her departure was not the right choice, declaring "I think they got this wrong. I know they got this wrong."
As for how the axe actually dropped, Jill says after she spoke with producers of the show, Andy called her to follow up. "He did give me that respect," she says, saying that the Watch What Happens Live interview is "an honest and candid interview between the two of us. I told him I thought he played favorites. I thought he was my parent and I thought he picked a side."
Read the full interview on TooFab, and be sure to tune in on Monday at 11p for Jill's full WWHL interview.
Oh and Jill, You owe Heather some flowers along with a huge apology for insulting her with your comparison to yourself. Laughable !!!
You've off this show because you turned into a very mean girl. Your treatment of Bethany was horrible. Now you blame her for your not being asked back. How sad for you. You are not as well liked as you think you are. Stop embarrassing yourself. This interview made you look vindictive and desperate. Go away.
Jill has no clue how many people can't stand her. During the last two seasons on the RHONY, fans (as Bethany would say) "Sleighed" this chick. She was the most hated housewife. Why would she think, she had to "say goodbye her fans" What fans?? They hated her!! Please Andy DO NOT BRING JILL BACK ON THE SHOW.. Didn't like her than, and I do not like her nowl..
Really Jill - how sad and desperate are you pushing yourself to get back on the RHONY?
I suppose your happy marriage, successful career and privledged lifestyle are not enough for you. You needed to bash Bravo, Andy and the new ladies of RHONY - and really how insulting to Heather comparing yourself to her and commenting on her religion. Shame on you. Just go away.
I want Jill back on the show. I think that Andy likes to take side on the reunión a good host should be neutral always no matter what. I dont like him anymore
I saw that, hot mess, Jill Z's interview this morning. Oh my is she full of herself and has some sort of selective memory. I am not sure what the point of that interview was; I can only hope this was not Bravo "testing the waters" to see if people want her back on TV.
Holy Moly! I watched WWHL last night with Jill and it made me ill. To hear she planned fights and spats for better ratings was just unbelievable. You don't use or abuse true friendships like that! And does she really believe she and Heather are similar? Heather is far too classy, intelligent and loyal to friends to stoop to Jill's level. Glad Jill Zarin is gone!
Oh please do not bring Jill back. Zarin is completely delusional. Could barely watch the show last night. I'll take anyone, even Aviva over her. Zarin is so hateful, toxic, delusional, narcissistic, and nefarious she doesn't even see that the viewers couldn't stand her. There is NOTHING redeeming about her! Please--don't bring back JILL ZARIN. CAN'T stand her!
I am currently watching Jill Zarins interview. I spit out my cola when I heard her compare herself to Heather. What an insult to Heather. Heather is awesome. She calls it accurately and is graceful and fun. Jill is delusional, grudge holder, mean girl. She was horrific to Alex, to Bethenny and she could never appologize. I am so happy when I go to sleep this season. Once the wives got to know each other and they got their groove the show got really good. Jill played games and I hear her still saying the same garbage. She has learned nothing and if she comes back, I doubt I could watch. Jill goes behind the backs of all the gals, whispersin LuAnns ears, has the group mean girl thing going on. All the problems were Jills and she can't believe anything was her fault. She simply made me laugh at her delusions. Even Aviva could appologze in the end. I can hardly wait to see the current gals again next season!
Oh Jill. ICK. Watching you on WWHL. Toxic is an understatement. So much manipulation, so much malice. BRAVO made the right decision to fire you.
I hope Jill stays away. She is not interesting and it's clear that her entire life is "staged".
Or to explain better...maybe, Andy is testing the waters. If Jill's ratings Monday are huge -- who knows?
OHHH I hope not! If this was a job interview, I'd point her to the EXIT sign, but fast.
Andy + Bravo....Please!!!! NOOOOO. Please don't invite Jill to return to RHNYC!
Wow, why is she comparing herself to Heaher? It's very odd and delusional. She's calculating and manipulative. Perhaps that's her "real" universe, and that's just sad, and seems as if she's been re-running her experience on the show. A bit unhinged, to put it mildly!
Jill needs to visit a good therapist as much as Aviva does.
I loved Jill too, wish she would come back and, for those who hate her, they should want her back too! Doesn't that make the show more interesting? As for who should get kicked off, my vote would be Luann. She has committed the cardinal sin this season of being BORING. The best show of the season was the one that ended with all of us thinking she had hooked up with the pirate, then she swept it all under the rug. Aviva is often the target of the viewers, but I have to admit she brought some juicy drama to an otherwise boring season.
I feel Jill was the life of the show. Since her daparture I must say I will not follow this show any longer. The women they have brought in are not only HARD to look at but just ridiculous. I have much compassion for ones with disabilities. But! my hell talk about feel sorry for yourself an one who has evidentally not ever grown up. I mean look, I cant even remember her name and I watched every episode. The one with the missing leg. When she stated she felt a party should have been thrown when she showed up on the vacation Caroline had planned. Sick pure sick. They need to take her OFF now. Caroline was not pretty to me at first yet once I got to know her from her character I saw a women who became beautiful to me. personality is what makes our beauty and that lady with the leg issue please get her off.
I love and miss jill and to all the haters you are just mean girls like miss betheny. She was down right nasty and a true bully!! Making fun of people, being fake to further her career, using people and setting up people. Never a fan of hers! Team jill all the way!
Yes Jill Andy does pick sides and that is why I no longer watch WWHL...he has desecrated NJ housewife Teresa. I used to DVR WWHL, Sunday through Thursday....no more....no more....I could care less about what he has to say.
Glad she's gone - she will not be missed. I liked her when she first started, then she got worse - Glad Kelly is gone too - way to crazy for me to enjoy watching.
I don't miss Jill and I'm also over Bethany. I can't even watch her show anymore or read anything about her. She turned into a B when she got rich. She's no longer endearing. Jill never was. I like the new cast members and could even do without Ramona next season. Keep Sonja and the Countess because they are both trainwrecks and fun to watch!
Okay. I get it. Not every1 loved Jill. I did side w. Bethany. Right is right & wrong is wrong. BUT Jill never paid me- lol- & I liked her. Yep, I even miss her being on the show. I was glad to see Kelly gone. They kept Sonya & Luann?! And look at who they brought in, though. I mean, come on. Seriously? I liked the old cast. So many changes that I dislike, I just catch the show if I pass by it. It's not a "must see" anymore.
I loved jill! i miss her on RHONY i am soooo sick of ramona! i will not be watching next season if she is on!
Agreed could not stand her she thought she was the star. Fingers crossed Bravo does not bring her back
Andy and the producers didn't get this one wrong! I know she's campaigning, but PLEASE don't bring Jill back on the show! It would be worse than if she never left; like giving someone a present and then saying "oops, mistake, it's not for you."
You fired Jill and left us with Ramona? That is too scary. Alex, would have liked to see her stay. Kelly glad she is gone!
I never did like Jill. She was a big bully and two faced. I'm not crazy about the new housewives chosen I must say. I think Luann needs to get the ax. She is so evil. She stirs up more trouble and seems to get away with it.
I'm so excited Jill was fired. I have not missed her on the show or on television period. She came across as if her life was so prefect and in order. So why did she need to be on the show? Jill became really prissy and always wanted the other cast to choose sides. Now without her, the cast and the past seasons have been great. Us, the viewers, get to watch the type of drama that we love instead of watching rich women like Jill really sit at home and do nothing all day but call her husbands name and complain about any and everything. Her not saying goodbye to the fans was one of the best moves she's made since being on the show. Again, who are you that you need to say goodbye to your fans!!! Stick a fork in Jill, she's done!!!
