Is Jill Zarin Getting Fired From Real Housewives of New York?

Resident Real Housewives of New York yenta Jill Zarin may not be returning to the show next season as a result of over-promoting herself this year to win over fans. Apparently, Bravo execs have become ever so slightly turned off by Jill's somewhat desperate vying for positive attention (well, at least she wants to be liked, and isn't stirring up drama for attention — ahem, Kim G)."She has been pitching herself very aggressively to keep her on next season, because she's terrified she'll...

Jill Zaran Is Considering Leaving RHoNY: Would You Miss Her?

While our Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have just announced they’re all returning for a second season, things aren’t as peachy on the other coast. Jill Zarin might be leaving the Real Housewives of New York City! Zarin and her husband Bobby were supposedly overheard at a restaurant discussing whether it’s time for Jill to call it quits. "Bobby made it clear that it was Jill’s decision but couldn’t understand what she would have to gain from returning to...

Alex Battles Jill and LuAnn on 'Real Housewives of NYC' Reunion (VIDEO)

The season may be over but the hurt feelings linger on. That's why we have so much fun with these reunion shows for the likes of 'The Real Housewives of New York City' (Mon., 10PM ET on Bravo). They're so successful, they tend to get two reunion installments per 'Housewives' iteration. What makes it work is that by the time we reach the reunion shows, the women have also watched the episodes aired on television. So they've now seen how horrible they are to one another, and they know what everyone said about them behind their backs, and worse. Poor Andy Cohen has to sit in the middle, hoping no one jumps up like a 'Jerry Springer' episode to start a fight. Alex turned red when arguing with LuAnn and Jill about who said what behind whose back.

'Real Housewives' Zarin and Singer Spar Over Alcohol Accusations on 'Today' (VIDEO)

There was talk of excessive drinking on the fourth hour of 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), and for once, it wasn't centered on Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. Jill Zarin and Ramona Singer of 'The Real Housewives of New York City' appeared on the show, each upset with the other for allegations of alcoholism, in what quickly turned into an uncomfortable segment. "She keeps inferring that I have a drinking problem," said Singer of Zarin. "You girls like to have a drink now and then, so do I." She then lobbed the same charge right back at Zarin, saying she had heard Zarin was the one with a drinking problem. Zarin denied she did, but said it would be wrong for Singer to talk about it on TV even if it were true.

Andy Cohen Tells NY 'Housewives' 'Shut the F*** Up!,' Neil Patrick Harris Says Replace Them (VIDEO)

While you didn't get to see it on the reunion special for 'The Real Housewives of New York City,' Andy Cohen revealed the moment he truly lost it during taping of the special on 'Watch What Happens: Live' (Mon., 11:30PM ET on Bravo). We think he probably deserves a medal anyway for trying to herd those women through comprehensive conversations. They usually talk over one another so much and get up yelling like they're on 'Jerry Springer,' it's an early impossible task. But this time, it just got to be too much. "This time, ladies and gentlemen, they broke me," Cohen said before revealing the clip. In it, after several tries to get the women to all stop talking he finally yelled at them to "Shut the f*** up!" Something we've wanted to do on multiple occasions each week during the show. It's fair to say we're actually jealous now of Cohen that he got to do it!

Tempers Flare as Ramona Attacks LuAnn's Parenting on 'Real Housewives NYC' Reunion (VIDEO)

Ramona made things personal, and seemed absolutely delighted by the visceral response she was getting, on 'The Real Housewives of New York City' (Thu., 10PM ET on Bravo) reunion special. The angrier LuAnn and Jill got, the more she was smiling and shifting around in her seat. It's Andy Cohen's fault for bringing it up, but Ramona's criticism of LuAnn's parenting was one of the more stand-out moments in the season. This question led to a lot of yelling back and forth, as Jill jumped to LuAnn's defense, and a lot of unanswered questions. "Why has your daughter transferred four times in four years?" Ramona asked. The response: "What does that have to do with our relationship?"

Natalie Cole Sings a Surprise Duet With LuAnn on 'Real Housewives NYC' Finale (VIDEO)

LuAnn DeLesseps was certainly able to surprise her husband, and all their guests, for their anniversary yacht party on the season finale of 'The Real Housewives of New York City' (Thu., 10PM ET on Bravo). Natalie Cole was in attendance, and had even agreed to do a duet with LuAnn. The pair had met only a few days before at the studio where LuAnn was working on her own music, which apparently Cole is a fan of. Huh. That's something. Anyway, Cole agreed to sing at the anniversary party, but only if LuAnn sang with her. What followed then was certainly exciting for Jacques, but odd to listen to. The pair tackled Nat King Cole's 'L-O-V-E' and to say there was a difference in their vocal ability would be a massive understatement.

The Countess LuAnn Films Her Latest Music Video on 'Real Housewives of NYC' (VIDEO)

By the time shooting day came for LuAnn's new music video for 'Chic, C'est La Vie' on 'The Real Housewives of New York City' (Thu., 10PM ET on Bravo), it was down to LuAnn, Jill and Kelly who were still willing to appear in the video. The women, nevertheless had a lot of fun, though it seemed to drive the director crazy. The Countess hung on to some advice she'd received in the past to "just go in there and do it." That meant no script and very little preparation. Which meant the director had to do a lot of heavy lifting to keep things running smoothly and making any sort of sense, particularly with Jill. It was great that Jill was so excited to be there, but she clearly was trying too hard and perhaps not taking it seriously enough at the same time.

'Real Housewife' Jill Zarin to Get Her Own Spin-Off Show?

A source told 'The Daily Mail' that the Zarins love London so much that they're looking at homes in the $10-15 million range in tony neighborhoods like Knightsbridge and Belgravia.
