It's been known for awhile, but now it's confirmed: Jill Zarin will not appear again on The Real Housewives of New York City.
Zarin herself commented on her exit last September, while rumors then surfaced that Ramona Singer was responsible for the ousting. But Bravo has finally released a statement of its own on the matter, stating for the record:
"We wish Jill the best, but there is no consideration of her returning to the series.
The network, of course, overhauled this franchise's cast with Heather Thomson, Carole Radziwill and Aviva Drescher heading into its fifth season.
Ratings have been down a bit, however, leading to chatter that Zarin could return. Jill prompted that talk, too, when she told The New York Daily News recently: "I've reached out and offered [Bravo] any support they need" in order to boost viewership.
That will not come to fruition, though, it's now clear, while no new reality show featuring Zarin is in the works, either.
