Report: Ramona Singer Pushed Jill Zarin Out of RHONYC

by at . Comments

Jill Zarin is no longer a Real Housewife of New York City. She sounds okay about this development, but her mood may change after reading the following rumor:

Sources tell Us Weekly that Ramona Singer played a significant role in ousting her rival from the series, actually going to Bravo "with a few pals she thought would make good additions."

The network proceeded to heed this advice - reportedly hiring Heather Thomson, Carole Radziwill and Aviva Drescher in place of Zarin, Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon - meaning Singer "basically ran [Zarin] off the show," the insider says.

Ramona doesn't really deny talking to producers. She told the tabloid:

"We can recommend people to come to the show, but it's not my decision."

Really, for so many ladies (?) to consider themselves the "Real Housewives of NYC", one would think they would mind their p and Q's (Look it up). Where are the urbane sophisticates? One might also surmise with the combined education,to include socioeconomic status, they would not have pronoun/antecedent, subject/verb, or prepositional phrase problems within their dialog.

And for Kelly...what a head case. No words are needed. Glad to see her go.

I LOVE Ramona--she feisty and may act abruptly; however, sick and tired of Jill Zarin and her righteous, know it all, spoiled attitude. Glad to see Jill go. No one cares--really.
Ramona is entrepreneurial and I admire her and all that she does. She sets a good example for all women. So what if she has Pinot and likes to have fun with the girls occasionally. She is hard working mother and wife.
I liked Alex. She was a newer, modern and breath of fresh air housewife. Too bad, the likes of Jill and the Countess made sure they bullied her off. I am disappointed in Luann. Probably too much of a 'Class' differential for Luann.

If Ramona is a bitchy and drunk as last season, I won't be watching.

I am very sorry that Bravo chose to keep Ramona and let Jill and Kelly go. I have decided not to watch the show any longer as I can't stand to watch Ramona's goofy eyes and her drunken self on the TV any longer. Bravo made a terrible mistake.

I love the housewives of NYC I will miss Jill as she is my favorite. She is the best part of the show. I really wish it was Romana that crazy eyed lunatic that was leaving. She is a drunken crazy person. Seriously put the bottle of pinot down you are ruining Pinot for the rest of the world. She needs serious counselling. Sonja is funny, crazy, and bitchy all rolled into one. Thank god Kelly is gone, she should live on her fairy cloud and stay in her Kelly world. Please reconsider bringing Jill back. We all need her.

I have been watching this from England in utter amazement and disgust. The Bitches of New York would be more apt. I am sorry Jill has not returned to series 5 as she was the most likeable and genuine and had a real rough ride in series 3. Lets look at it Bethenny was the under dog who was a nobody who used Jill to get to where she is today and could not be there for her friend when SHE needed her. Alex was and always will be the poor relation and wannabe and is obviously envious of Jill and resents the fact that she only lives in Brooklyn.
Ramona who could have made things better for Jill chose not to as she was enjoying the situation too much and flattered by her new friendships with the witches of Eastwick, she fuelled her venomous new friends.

I'm soo glad Alex got the boot...she's a vindictive,nasty and jealous peice of work and she's also a bully..you could practically hear her cacckling like the witch she is when Jill was emotional about her fall out with Bethany...She was always jealous of Jill and Bethany's friendship
