It’s all up in the air. No one knows which of the The Real Housewives of New York City are staying or going, but Jill Zarin “told me that she doesn’t want to go back to the show,” Cooper Lawrence, host of the nationally syndicated Cooper Lawrence Radio Show, tells HollywoodLife.com!
“[Jill] said there were compelling reasons to not return,” explained Cooper, who spoke with Jill over the phone while Jill was at dinner with Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger. “She wants to go on a spiritual journey!”
It sounds like Jill may be trying to run away from her problems, or at least one problem specifically — her co-star Bethenny Frankel! After all the fighting we’ve seen between the two ex-BFFs on season three, as well as her countless attempts to make amends with Bethenny only ending in refusals, it’s no surprise that Jill has had enough.
I think that Jill really is heartbroken over losing Bethenny's friendship this year, but Jill needs to confront the fact that her childish antics played a huge part in why it ended. Some could argue that Bethenny should stop holding a grudge and forgive the "mean Girl", but Bethenny's such a different person now with a new marriage, baby, TV show, etc., who needs the drama Jill creates? I'm of the opinion that RHONYC could survive without Jill, but I'd be lying if I said that she wouldn't be missed.
