With news that Alexis Bellino, Gretchen Rossi and Taylor Armstrong were fired from their Real Housewives gigs, former New York cast member Jill Zarin gave an insider’s perspective on why the women were let go.
Zarin will appear via Skype on tonight’s episode of Ross Mathew‘s talk show, Hello Ross! to explain what may have happened behind the scenes, admitting that she herself was fired from the NYC franchise.
Zarin told Mathews she called up Orange County‘s Vicki Gunvalson, who couldn’t confirm the news, but did tell Zarin that she wouldn’t be surprised if it were true.
The signs that a cast member would be fired are all too obvious, Zarin explained. Producers who used to ask what she was doing for the next six months would all of a sudden stop inquiring about her long-term schedule. At that point, Zarin said, it’s quite obvious that you’re being let go.
Is there any bad blood between Zarin and the network?
No, says Zarin. In fact, she talks to Andy Cohen on the regular. As for the person she dislikes most from her franchise? “Mean girl” Ramona Singer.
For Zarin’s full interview, watch Hello Ross tonight at 10/9 central on E!
