Former Real Housewife of New York Alex McCord may not have to work with castmateÂ Jill Zarin anymore, but that doesn’t mean the four-season feud is over!
During her recent appearance on Good Morning America, McCord spoke out about why she felt she was nixed from RHONY’s upcoming 5h season.
Jill has been trying to get me off the show for a number of years. She succeeded…She’s a manipulator and she’s very good at feeding information to her own end.
McCord’s husband Simon van Kempen was also on hand to add his two cents.
Jill is a flawed woman extraordinaire…Jill sometimes is still very much stuck in junior high as the girl who was unpopular, who was bullied. And 30 years later, she’s still there.
Ugh, Simon. Â GO AWAY.
Not wanting to miss an opportunity for free publicity, a rep for Zarin weighed in on the GMA comments, telling US Weekly,
Alex and Simon’s allegations represent the type of negativity that Jill is eager to move on from. Jill will continue to take the high road and wish Alex and Simon nothing but the best…Â While it is easy to play the blame game, it is our hope that Alex and Simon will eventually accept Bravo’s decision and proceed with grace to the next stage in their career rather than hold on to past resentments… As Jill proceeds with optimism, she is grateful to Bravo for a successful 4 year run on The Real Housewives of New York City and is focused on the national launch of her shapewear line, Skweez Couture at Lord and Taylor.
That sure is a different tune than the queen of Zarin Fabrics was a-whistlin’ last week!
