Jill Zarin Tells Us: I Wasn't Fired From Real Housewives of NYC
Not so fast!
Hours after The Huffington Post reported Jill Zarin and her fellow Real Housewives of New York City cast members Cindy Barshop, Kelly Bensimon and Alex McCord would be axed from the Bravo hit's upcoming fifth season, Zarin is setting the record straight.
"Jill has not been fired from The Real Housewives of New York City. The truth is that Jill is still in discussions with Bravo for season 5 and hasn't made a final decision about returning to the show," a rep for the 47-year-old reality star told Us Weekly Thursday afternoon.
Should the internet casting rumors be true, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan would be the only season 4 cast members to remain on the series, with additional new women being added to the mix at a later date.
Singer -- who used the series to aid in the launch of her Ramona pinot grigio line -- is reportedly in the middle of negotiating a new contract, while a Huffington Post source says McCord and Bensimon were notified by the network Thursday morning that pink slips would be coming their way.
