Jill Zarin doesn't seem to have any hard feelings left toward the demise of her time on Real Housewives of New York. In fact, she says now she saw it coming!
I was definitely prepared for it. I had sort of an inkling over the summer that the show might take a turn. As a family, we weren't sure if coming back for a fifth season was going to be the best road for me right now, but we were waiting until Bravo made their decision.
I believe that what's meant to be is meant to be, so I sort of let it happen. If they asked me back and that was my path, so be it. And if they said that they wanted to make a change for the cast and that was going to be my final season, I was certainly ok with that. I had a four-year run on a very successful show. And it's just now starting to air in Europe. I get about 50 emails a day from the UK, Germany, Israel, and Australia — we're all over the world. The show will continue (good or bad) to live on in reruns on Bravo and any other network.
I'm very proud of what I did. It was just a platform for me. I'm grateful to Bravo for opening the door for me in this business that I never though I'd be in — the entertainment business. It won't be the last time (I hope) that I'll be on television. I have a couple things that I'm in the middle of that I can't share yet.
Sounds like she's been doing some extra yoga sessions, sippin' a little extra green tea, laying out in the Hamptons…
