We're back! Hi everyone! I CANNOT believe it has been 9 months since we were last on TV! I could have given birth! The pain was excruciating at times. You will see how we lived our lives last summer and fall and watch Allyson grow into the young lady she has become. We are so proud of her. I also re-launched my website: www.jillzarin.com. You can see exclusive behind-the-scenes photos and stories there. I also do frequent interviews on www.livewithlisaradio.com after each episode, so check there for new audio!
Now, onto the juice you all want to hear. I have to say the NY Magazine article was very hurtful to me at the time. They never talked badly about anyone before and now they talked badly about me, or so I thought. When I spoke with Cindy Adams for The Post, I took the opportunity to address Simon and Alex. I can't say I was right, but that was how I dealt with it at the time. We both were offended, but we were able to get past it and move on. I should be weary of the press, as some take advantage of my words, but I am who I am, and will continue to talk.
The charity event you saw in episode one is called Help For Orphans. My dear friend Sarah Ehlich is the founder and chair of this charity. She has been to Kenya many times and asked me last summer to help. She is not as connected socially in the Hamptons and I loved the idea of funding a vocational school in this region. I met Peter, the Headmaster, of the school this past summer. Though he was not able to come to event, he will be excited to see it online from Africa. If you would like to help the school and learn more about it, please go to www.jillzarin.com and click on charities
