Jill Zarin: 'I Didn't Know I Intimidated People'

Cindy Barshop was most afraid to meet the RHONY veteran.

With Season 4 of The Real Housewives of New York City arriving this week, we're all now well aware of each 'Wife's rep. Well, all of us except Jill Zarin.

"You were the one I was so nervous to meet," freshman RHONY star Cindy Barshop told Jill (while Fox411 cameras rolled), but to the surprise of her new co-star. "Who told you about me?" Jill shot back.

Cindy, the mom of twin girls Jesse and Zoe, didn't drop names but she flattered Jill by saying, "I just was nervous because you're a big personality. [But] it was the sweetest. Honestly, [Jill's] the one who opened arms and it made me feel good."

Although initially taken aback by Cindy's confession, Jill's didn't seem to worried about striking anxiety into the hearts of cast newbies. "I've always been a dominant personality. There's no question I'm [type] A, but I didn't know I intimidated people. But that's not a bad thing."

In fact, Jill says that forceful personality is a commonality amongst all the 'Wives. "We all have these very quirky personalities. We're very bold, we're very strong... We're flawed and our fights are really real."

The wait is finally almost over! The RHONY season premiere arrives on Thursday at 10 pm -- get ready by catching up on all the buzz with our Tweet Tracker.
