Jill Zarin Says The Real Housewives Franchise Is Over!

Jill Zarin

Former Real Housewife of New York, Jill Zarin, has a lot to say about The Real Housewives Franchise in a new interview with The Huffington Post. A  year ago, Jill said she wouldn’t return to RHONY for $1 million, now she seems to be changing her tune a bit, but says she thinks “there’s too many Housewives,” adding that there are about 37 cast members total. “There’s no more room … I think that Housewives, I think it’s over.”

Jill goes on to say there’s no more room for Housewives to get book deals, business ventures, product endorsements, etc. She seems to think Bravo has added to many women to the franchise, and it’s become bigger than what viewers can relate to. Zarin said she thinks Bethenny Frankel paved the way and is a memorable Housewife, along with herself, NeNe Leakes, Teresa Giudice, and Lisa Vanderpump. Jill thinks there’s only a couple of Housewives per city that are memorable and that stick out in her mind. Jill goes on to repeat that she believes The Real Housewives Franchise is “over.”

Hate to admit that I agree with her – but, I think she is 100% correct.

Oh Jill… YOU are the one who’s over! The Housewives franchise is humming along quite nicely, thank you, as are the Housewives-related offshoots, like Watch What Happens and all these blogs (like AllthingsRH!) that are doing super well!

In fact, it’s probably to the credit of the continued interest in the Housewives that Jill is even still being interviewed!! Let’s hope she finds a hobby. Bethanny was right.

This woman will do anything to stay relevant. There are certain franchises that seem to be over, like NY. It’s a shame that they have gotten away from the family plot, that is what drew me to OC in the first place. Jill needs to focus on her fabric store.

Ugh, go away Jill Zarin. You’re a nobody. She craves attention. She is a despicable individual…so go back home, Jill. You’re no longer aloud in the housewives world! You have overstayed your welcome.

Go away Jill Zarin!! I actually pity her.

My goodness, talk about a bad looser!! Jill please just stop and move on. You are truly embarrassing yourself!! You are like a nasty boil that refuses to disintegrate!! Nothing seems to make you happy. You were always complaining & moaning about something when you were on the show. Clearly, you are miserable in your “off camera” life as well.. Maybe a little personal therapy would help? You are so blessed in your life, sit back take a breath and enjoy. Stop being bitter & ugly! JT

Jill Zarin is an idiot! An attention craving idiot! The only thing that’s over is Jill Zarin!!
She is getting really desperate lately.

attention whores are a very sad bunch.

I think you people are a little bit hard on Jill and and seriously I think she might have a point!! To be honest with you everyone is getting tired of all the nastiness & & the bullying!!! No more family attacking family the RHONJ is getting very dark and I am not going to watch S5 if its going to be like S3 & S4 where Teresa Giudice gets bullied all season long again!!!

Leave Jill alone. When she left the RHONY went down hill. How’s Bethanny’s life working? You haters just don’t like Jill telling the truth. Keep it up Jill, I’m with you.

I think there’s some bitterness where Jill’s concerned. Sure RHONY isn’t the same, but I think the rest of the cities are doing just fine.

Jill Zarin is an attention junkie, and has been behaving badly on and off camera since the show started… Shen is obviously bitter but the truth is that the House Wives franchise is successful but very dark and nasty… When was the last time you ever saw these ladies have fun around each other… most of the cast members just gossip about each other in ways that would ruin any normal friendship… These women have children and most of them are so wretched that I would not even let them dog sit… Andy Cohen has basically become the Jerry Springer… Read more »
If the show about housewives is correct why do they keep hiring single women. In the real world of housewives I don’t know many housewives who can jet around the world and drop thousands of dollars on handbags and shoes. This real housewives franchise is all BS. There is no talent in acting at all. There are many felons on or related to the show, a few strippers and escorts(prostitutes)in the past and some in the here and now. One rule of thumb they seem to do is if you can’t afford something well then you steal,lie and commit fraud… Read more »
