Fired 'Real Housewives' Star Jill Zarin Will Confront Andy Cohen on 'Watch What Happens Live'
The Confrontation Promises to Be More Interesting Than the Entire Recent Season of The Real Housewives of New York City
They're smiling in those photos, but after next Monday night's episode of Andy Cohen's Bravo talk show Watch What Happens Live, that may not be the case.
Fired Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin will be a guest on WWHL, and she's already saying (to anyone who will listen) that she plans to confront Cohen, who's also the Bravo executive for all things Real Housewives-related, about why she was fired.
"I feel like they killed me off and I didn't get to say goodbye," Zarin told the New York Daily News. "I'm really grateful" to make an appearance on WWHL, she continued, "even though it's 15 months overdue. I'm going to ask him why I was fired."
We can probably help her out with that one. Why was she fired … perhaps because she had become an insufferable ass, who thinks far more about herself, and is far more impressed with herself than a) she has a right to be and b) than anyone else is?
And because she unwisely assumed she was going to emerge the victor, the fan favorite, in the jealousy-inspired mean girl war she launched against former BFF and co-star Bethenny Frankel?
But mostly because she had become an insufferable ass (and a boring one, at that)?
Zarin says she was told poor focus group testing led to her ouster -- and she blames Bravo editing for that, not her aforementioned insufferable ass-iness -- and hints that she was also asking for too much money.
"I think (her firing is) also a signal to other cast member on other shows … don't get greedy about money," Zarin says. "We'll fire anybody. No one's too big for their show."
Though she is a chore to watch and listen to, we have to admit that we're looking forward to Monday night's confrontation, if that's what it turns out to be.
Cohen seems to skate by without ever really having to address much of his involvement with various Real Housewives scandals, and though we're a bit surprised he'd invite this particular scandal onto his show, it would be good to see him honestly answer any squirm-inducing questions Zarin might pose.
