Jill Zarin, who plays Dorinda Medley, Phaedra Parks, Eva Marcille, Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, and Taylor Armstrong in Peacocks The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club. While reimagining the new series, Zarin focused on a recent People interview, simply stating, "The show went in a different direction."
Zarin admitted in an interview that she was contemplating story lines for Season 5, although she received a phone message from her producer. He said the producers wanted the series to go in a different direction and that last season ended very dark which she found ironic because they had ruled that out. I filmed a slew of happy scenes that the network rejected.
Zarin appeared on an episode of October 2012 Watch What Happens Live and asked Cohen point-blank why she was fired from RHONY. The audience agreed, noting the many times they had already discussed the topic. He even stated that the reunion of RHONY was extremely dangerous for everyone involved.
Zarin expressed her gratitude to Cohen for her firing, revealing that she''d be saddened following him. She also revealed that she felt like he had played favorites and sided with Bethenny Frankel in their televised fight, characterizing Zarin as a villain.
Zarin went on an Oprah: Where Are They Now? segment in February 2014. Explaining that she had taken a sleeping tablet one night in 2011, she remembered redistributing an email to her producer and three of the five Housewives. The email stated that she had planned to leave RHONY and go out on top. The next day, she got cold feet but was removed, but Bravo had already caught the wind of the email.
Zarin claimed on the OWN series that when everything closes, I''m likely to be fired. I honestly have no clue why I was fired because nobody will tell me the true answer. I mean, when I was told, the actors believed it had gone so dark that it couldn''t recover and they needed to change it. I was not sure whether or not I had a lot of sympathy.
Zarins is getting another stint as a Housewife on RHUGT Season 2 and with Bravo working on an RHONY legacy series, she may be back on the network again before you know it.
