Just when we thought we’d finally gotten rid of her…
Shortly after sources leaked that Jill Zarin, Kelly Killoren Bensimon and Alex McCord were not asked to stay onÂ for a fifth season of The Real Housewives of New York, Mama Jill mounted a campaign to assure her devastated fans that she had NOT been nixed from the show.
A rep for Zarin issued a statement on her client’s behalf claiming,
Jill has not been fired fromÂ The Real Housewives of New York City. The truth is that Jill is still in discussions with BRAVO for season 5 and hasn’t made a final decision about returning to the show.
She hasn’t made a decision or hasn’t finished begging BRAVO to let her come back? Â I’m putting my money on the latter.
Unfortunately, even if Zarin and Bensimon did get the ax, according to one insider,
The three housewives who were not invited back were told that they could possibly be reinstated next season if any of the new cast members don’t work out.
I could care less if Alex stays on the show. Â It’s amusing to watch her little family unit try to function with some level of normalcy, but I will be the happiest clam in the bay if Kelly and Jill are put out to pasture – for good.
