In times of struggle and confusion, we can always hold one truth to be self evident: Bravo’s ex-Real Housewives are desperate to get back on the show that made them (semi) famous. Here’s a list of the top ten Bravolebrities who would sell a kidney to collect a full time reality TV paycheck again.
Jill Zarin: The ultimate scorned Housewife.
via: Getty ImagesThis is a tough one, but hear me out. Jill Zarin suffered the tragic loss of her husband, Bobby Zarin, just last week when he lost his battle with cancer at 71 years of age. Then she used his funeral as a Bravo filming opportunity. Yikes. An original cast member of The Real Housewives of New York, Jill held the top spot among the cast of NY socialites for those early golden years of Housewives. Indeed, RHONY enjoyed its highest ratings during the seasons in which Jill appeared. But when her best friend (and struggling entrepreneur at the time) Bethenny Frankel started pulling ahead of Jill in viewer love, Jill got royally pissed. Bethenny even alleged that Jill forbid other cast members from filming with her, which led to a spinoff for Bethenny - and a swift Buh-bye! to Jill on the show. Since then, Jill has been ranting, raving, scrambling, and scraping for her spot back in the limelight. She even invited Bravo cameras to film her public “making amends" scene with Bethenny at Bobby’s funeral this week. Claiming that Bobby would have wanted it that way, Jill has ignored the public outcry about this very controversial move. Was it a true reconciliation? Or was it just Jill’s thirstiest grab for a spot back on Housewives yet?
