Jill Zarin Wanting Finder's Fee For Bethenny Frankel?? And Even More Dish On Her Firing!

After Bravo gave Jill Zarin the boot from Real Housewives of New York, she remained pretty classy about it.

She said all the right things you're supposed to say publicly as to not burn any bridges, but now she's opening up a little more and we're learning some real feelings!

Jill insists she was never a brat over the salary (although she also says she wasn't paid what she deserved), and that her firing felt completely random. She also wishes she could get finder's fees for Bethenny Frankel's success.

According to her, there would be now Bethenny if it wasn't for her!! She says she basically cast the show herself:

First off, I like to say I was fired because I'm not embarrassed about it. I didn't do anything wrong, so I really don't know why they fired us and kept the other girls. I was upset because I was told to put my life on hold. But I didn't argue, I wasn't going to try to sell anyone. I said, 'OK. Thank you for everything you've done for me.' Andy Cohen called shortly after, which I'm sure was a difficult thing to do. He gave me the respect I deserved considering I committed four years of my life to the show. He said they wanted the series to go in a different direction and that last season ended very dark — which I find ironic because they could have controlled that. I filmed many happy scenes that the network canned.

We were finally making a decent amount of money last season. That was never a concern. They're getting a lot of money now, so that's another thing I'm disappointed about. I didn't get to make the money I feel I deserved. I didn't just help make the show popular; I cast it. I brought in Bethenny, and I don't get a percentage of anything she spins off. The first, second and third season salary pretty much added up to the fourth season. I worked really hard.

Hmmm, sounds like she's realizing leaving some embers on that bridge is worth it if means getting some things off her chest!

All right, now it's time for all the Bethenny fanatics to sound off…. sound away!!!

    I liked her on the show. I agree with Alex and Kelly getting canned, but Jill was good. I think the show started to suck bad when Jill and Bethenney broke up, they were hilarious together and made the show good.

    -Eh..dull and boring. Jill is yesterday's c-list news…



  10. 10

    Words like 'classy', 'respect', and 'hard work' have no place any where near these so-called housewives. Their fake performances for the cameras are sleazy, deserve no respect, and are certainly not hard work. I cannot believe that so many people watch this shit.



  11. 11

    Loud-mouthed jackass! Go away! Who cares you are married to an old, rich troll???



  12. 12

    she was one of the WORST housewives of the entire franchise. absolutely classless and always loved to play victim. i couldn't stand her. she could dish it but NEVER take it and frankly she should shut up about getting a finder's fee from bethenny's success. she tried tirelessly to sabotage her after their falling out. when that didn't work she wanted to make MONEY off of it? oh shut up jill. the best move the RHONY could have done was get rid of this brat. the next is countless luann.



  13. 13

    Who is this bitch? She looks like Mrs. Harper from Mama's Family, minus the grey curly wig.



  14. 14

    The Real Housewives of Atlanta is the only one of these shows worth watching anyway.



  15. 15

    Jill Zarin is a self important, idiot.Jealous of Bethanny and never going to land another gig.
    Shut up and go home.

    She is such a jealous bitch! Bethenny earned what she got! Just because people don't want to watch her and they obviously want to watch Bethenny doesn't mean she can run your mouth all the time!



  17. 17

    HOLY HELL I Sure hope she is kidding… She actually thinks she deserves a finders fee for Bethany? This crazy bitch is such a narcissist. She wonders why she was let go well heres a clue YOUR CRAZY. YOU LIE and start more bullshit and your BORING TO WATCH on tv. Hope you saved some money.



  18. 18

    Me Me Me I I I $$$$$, no wonder people hate her…



  19. 19

    Zarin was MONOTONOUS. She doesn't know that? She said the same things over and over again for nearly three frickin' years of the show. Something about Bobby. And something about how hurtful something was. What…a..BORE she made of herself. Yet obviously she has no sense of that in herself. She kept the show in the ruts she made muddy. And really she never much shared much of her personal life. Not really. Whining, showing up at charity events and talking about shoppin' wasn't really the most fascinating thing on television, you know. As for Bethenney…she wants to take CREDIT for that? Another neurotic whine drawn to fame like a moth and manipulating the media? Let her take credit for it.



  20. 20

    Jill does deserve something for DISCOVERING Bethenny. Without Jill, she'd still be selling muffins at empty supermarkets in CT.



  21. 21

    Re: rosebud99 – It's actually quite interesting. Reality shows are an excellent way of observing human behaviour, often attracts quite disturbed people. Much is staged and scripted, but body language never lies.



  22. 22

    Re: Adorable Kevy – "Something about Bobby, something about how hurtful something was". Haha! Brilliant.



  23. 23

    Bawby, please leave this whining aardvark already! I'm sure she knows about his piece on the side, but won't acknowledge her because she has no talent and NEEDS to be married to a rich man to maintain her extravagant, fake lifestyle. She'll never have another show and she knows it. While she's galavanting all around town taking credit for Bethenny's success, Bawby is f*cking his 20-something HOT mistress. Jillousy is the most miserable of all the HW's franchise (Vicky from the O.C. is a very close second). DISAPPEAR Jillousy! No one likes you! YOU'RE PATHETIC!!! Old 50-something HAG!



  24. 24

    You are worth what you can get somebody to pay you. Bethenney probably contributed to the ratings during her tenure and that was probably reflected in your pay.

    I watch all the RH series, and Jill Zarin has always been one of my favourite housewives (if not my favourite)… I'm really going to miss her love/hate relationship with Romana and her on/off friendship with Alex. I hope to see Jill in her own spinoff show ala Bethany. New York has always been my favourite RH but I'm I just don't know if it will live up to the past 4 seasons without Jill and Alex… could care less about the horrible horrible Kelly "stop" Bensimone.



  26. 26

    Sorry Jillousy, you're a big turnoff on the show! As far as Bethenny goes, when someone is a star, they find a way to make it regardless. Bethenny would of made it regardless of you. For you to need to claim that makes you more desperate. It's sad to see people trying to cling on to their fame. Plus you had your chance to make season 4 good w/out Bethenny but ALL of you were a mess! that obviously Bravo's trying to clean up.



  27. 27

    Jill, how pathetic and desperate you are. Definitely Bethenny has something that you don't. It was so cruel and disgusting the way you and your arrogant Cauntless treated Bethenny when Ramona tried to help both of you to make peace. When Ramona didn't tell you that Bethenny's father passed away, you were furious and so mad at Ramona. For what??? The viewers watched how nasty you turned into since Countless became your friend. Shame on you want to get a finder's fee for Bethenny's success. How shameless and greedy you are. Thanks God you are not on the show anymore. Go away and don't come back, bring the Countless with you, she is so boring. I can't stand to hear her sing. Her voice doesn't even reach 1 octave.
