LuAnn de Lesseps Wants Jill Zarin to Return to RHONY


RHONY star LuAnn de Lesseps thinks it might be time to bring back one of the show’s veteran cast members. That’s right, she wants Jill Zarin back on the show.

“You know, I always miss the girls who aren’t on the show anymore,” Luann says. “Kristen [Taekman’s] a great girl, so is Heather [Thomson]. But you know, they’ve moved on and I just keep moving forward.”

“I feel it’s really authentic [this season], because we’re all old friends,” the Countess shares. “We’ve known each other a long time, and there’s a lot of flashbacks going on to the previous seasons, and I think it gives it weight and depth, and I think it kinda jells.”

And there’s one person she really wants to see back. “Oh, Jill Zarin!” Luann says. “Everybody wants to see Jill.”

Jill was let go in 2011, when the show was heavily recast. In 2014, Andy Cohen teased that they tried to bring her back to film one scene for season six, but it didn’t work out.

“Ramona [Singer] found out and she put the kibosh on that,” Luann reveals. “Because Jill had the ‘goods’ on her … What that means is Jill knew what was going on in Ramona’s life.”

“[Jill]’s the Jewish mom,” Luann says. “She knows everything.”

While it might be fun for viewers to see Jill again, it’s highly unlikely with the return of Bethenny Frankel.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
