Watching Real Housewives of New York former cast member Jill Zarin sit down with Andy Cohen was perhaps the most interesting thing to come out of the Housewife franchise since Sonja (with a sexy J) Morgan's "toaster oven" and the fact that Joe Gorga was, in fact, a stripper. Jill went on Watch What Happens Live to essentially confront Andy about her firing, and boy, if you thought Mitt Romney and Barack Obama had the most crucial debate this week, you are sorely mistaken.
I cannot believe what Jill had to say.
I take that back. Yes, yes I can believe what Jill had to say. She's the same self-aggrandizing narcissist she was on the series. Nothing's changed. Not one thing. She's still bitter as shit, she's still blaming other people for her problems, and she still thinks that the world, and the show, revolves around her, even though she's no longer on the show, and no one really cares about what she's been up to.
Jill, however, would beg to differ. She spent 20 minutes telling Andy how much the fans miss her. How we boycotted this season because she wasn't on it. How the ratings of RHONY have suffered without her. (Not true.) How Heather Thompson was cast as the new Jill Zarin, but without, as Jill sees it, a good enough family life. How she orchestrated fights with Bethenny to make "good TV", only to be disappointed when Andy sided with her much saner best friend. How her life is so interesting now, you guys, that she, as a 45-year-old-plus woman, still gets into screaming matches at parties, even when there are no cameras around. How her dog, Ginger, didn't get enough of Andy's attention.
And I feel like that was only half of it.
Her appearance of WWHL backfired so hard that I'm not entirely positive it didn't cause the earthquake in the Northeast. Jill went on there to get her job back, I suppose, but managed to prove to everyone just how much she deserved to be fired. She's not fun to watch. In fact she's so ego-centric that it makes your skin crawl. I have more Twitter followers than all the New York Housewives combined! I'm important!
And then, when Andy asked her if she paid for those followers, she replied, "Are you kidding me??"
Nope, not kidding.
Oh! And oh my goodness. Did you catch that part where she looked into the camera to speak to us, "her fans", like she was fucking Evita or something? Don't cry for us, Jill, because the truth is that we don't miss you. Not one bit. She's beyond delusional.
Do you miss Jill on The Real Housewives of New York?
