WWHL's Associate Producer describes her wild week of housewives and prank calls.

on Oct 18, 20120

Hello! This is Lindsey, Associate Producer, reporting from the Bravo Clubhouse. My how this week started off with a dramatic bang! Between the RHONJ reunion Sunday, the RHONY reunion Monday, and none other than Jill Zarin in the clubhouse Monday night, sh*t was getting REAL. 

Let’s just talk about the Jill episode for a hot minute. I knew the instant she arrived because I heard Ginger barking in the lobby and Jill’s familiar voice floating through the office. Moments later she strolled by my desk with Bobby and Ginger. My first thought was, wow, Jill looks amazing! Not that she didn’t look good before, but damn, those liquid facelifts have paid off.

After my initial gut reaction, my mind exploded with questions…What does she think of the new cast? Does she feel awkward being here now that she’s not a Housewife? How is she going to react to our questions? What questions is she going to ask Andy? As it turns out, Andy and Jill had a respectful conversation, and were able to ask and answer the questions all RHONY fans wanted to know. No drinks were thrown, no tables were flipped, but holy moly was it ever an entertaining episode to watch.

OH, wow! Jill Zarin needs to take a rest already! She seems very bitter, angry and jealous. She needs to move on because holding on isn't healthy. Obviously, she's holding onto the show or why would she tape record the interview. Really--let it go Jill--move on! Enough already! It's eating her up!

Apparently, Jill is still living in the past an misses her days on RHNYC. Lordy, lordy, please don't bring her back, even for a "guest shot" or cameo.  When she compared herself to Heather, whoa nellie! I almost fell off my chair!!!

 

Say you're going to need to add new ladies to the show, for instance:

 

Carole decides it was an experience of a lifetime, and a one-shot deal.

Aviva is given the boot (no pun intended)

LuAnn decides to take a brake to suss out what the dickens she wants to do with her branded affordable non-existent whatcha-ma-call-its -- uh uh uh; or devote time to Jacques, or devote time to her children, or concentrate on her singing career

 

In the event, find some interesting women to replace them. It's New York City!!! Please, please don't dust the cobwebs off the shelves and invite Jill to return!

Watching Jill on WWHL brought back my facial tick!  She is soooo annoying, narcissistic and delustional.  She does NOT have more Twitter followers than the majority of the RHONJ or Bethanny - so she has her facts incorrect also.  The new cast is GREAT!  Please leave her in the past where she belongs!

Jill came off very bitter and I hope she does not come back. She is obviously still very jeolous of Bethany and was extremely rude to Andy. She was completely out of line.

Wow!! I just watched that and the caller would have fooled me too! She didn't sound like a prankster. I'd say she prob has mental issues. Or, maybe she was trying to be funny. I mean, Andy can be irreverent so maybe the caller thought she was doing the same with him. Strange!!!

 

LOVE, love, love the Ramona eye patch! LOL (it's so big and bloodshot... just like Ramona's eyes. It just looks sooo wrong on LuAnnm, but yet soooo right at the same time! ha!

Jill is crazy and I am soooo glad that she is off the show. It's funny because if she has soo many things going on in her life, then what's all the nonsense about the new show and Bethenny's show? You can tell that she misses all of the fame. I liked Jill in Season 1 & a little in season 2 but that last season with her, Cyndy, kelly, & Luan, was very toxic. They acted like 50 yr old bratty bullies. Move on Jill. Your time has ended. Please don't give her any more air time.

Please, no more Jill Zarin. I watched WWHL and I agree, she looked great. But it's time for her to move on. I'd liked Jill during S1 but did a 180 degree turn on her by the end of S3. I know she alludes to legions of fans, but I was happy when she got fired. Still, I felt embarrassed for her, sitting there and rehashing a fight which must have happened 3 years ago (?), or close to. At this point, WHO CARES? Jill has other irons in the fire and I thought she'd moved on, but I guess not. Please do not bring her back. Regardless of whatever Jill says, the show is doing fine without her. I like the new women.

I just listened to the "Prank Caller"  tape, and have to say that Andy handled that sooooo well, I am so proud of you, That person who called is obviously lacking even a small morsel of human grace. And was a chicken Sh** for hanging up. Wow!!  Enough said about someone who pretty much must hate herself...because Andy, I adore you...I listened to your book on tape...pretty much in 2 days, you entertained me so while driving and working ( I drive for a living)..and love watching you on your show... after a long day, you always make me laugh, that's what life is about.... forget about the "prank B****" ,,better yet, don't forget... just smile, because you definately won that one!! !!!!

Jill drove me nuts!  She was cool the first season.  Boy did she spin around.  To listen to her talk about how she tried to make up with Bethany was a joke.  No one can replace her?  She is mental!  Her last season she really thougt she was a Diva! She had a privelage to do the show and messed it up big time. Glad she's off the show.  The new girls are at least interesting.

 @kipper9 Ohh Yeah, Jill saying "no one can replace me"... and then said she thought Heather was her replacement??? What the heck??

 

Heather is cool, interesting, and doesn't have a jealous or conceited bone in her body. Heather is TRULY loved by all.

 I agree with you and i kinda think Jill is a little delusional. She is not the voice of reason.
