Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon & Alex McCord Will Not Return to Real Housewives | Alex McCord, Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon


It’s official, Kelly Bensimon, Jill Zarin, Alex McCord and have been fired from the Real Housewives of New York City. confirmed late last night.  The rumors have been going around for the past week. 

Bravo TV wanted more glamorous women to represent New York. Three new ladies have been recruited.

Remaining with the cast: Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and LuAnn de Lesseps.

When the story went out, Jill Zarin’s rep made an interesting comment:

 Jill is humbled by the extraordinary amount of media interest in her response and looks forward to personally opening up about all of this very soon and announcing some exciting new projects.”

Humbled? The number of Facebook and twitter  queries sent to Andy Cohen and Bravo TV asking that Jill Zarin be removed from the cast was extraordinary, so much so that Cohen responded: “I hear your concerns.” 

Throughout the summer, , through Naughty Nice Rob, issued veiled threats directed at Bravo about “telling it all”. These threats heightened after the suicide death of .   Good to know Bravo didn’t respond to these threats. We will be hearing from Jill Zarin for as long as anyone cares what she has to say. Zarin is currently in Nashville, Tennessee visiting her daughter Ally Shapiro at college. She and husband Bobby are leaving for Europe Thursday.  As for  the “exciting new projects”, she and Patti Stanger are reportedly working together on something, but, given these two personalities, that won’t last.

Kelly Bensimon should have been fired after the Scary Island incident during Season 3.  She’ll just go back to lala land and her gummy bears.

The firing of Alex McCord is causing protest among her fans. It doesn’t matter, Alex comes with Simon van Kempen, Andy Cohen wanted him gone, badly.He caused too much trouble on twitter, simple as that.   And there is no Alex, unfortunately, without Simon.  So there.

    Luann is the most condescending thing — drag queen — I’ve seen in my life. I cringe whenever she gets on camera, ‘dahhhling’. Uggh

    I guess she’s in keeping with the level of snobbery the show’s now going for. I didn’t think I’d watch after Bethany left. Now I’m really feeling like, “Why bother?”

    The only thing left to enjoy about the show is crazy-eyed Ramona. She’s good for a laugh (at, not with). That’s about it.


    I don’t understand what twitter trouble Simon caused. Jill accused him of “cyber-bullying” but it seemed that JILL was guilty of more of that than simon


    I spelled co-dependent wrong. My paws are cold today and I was up all night hunting owls. Excuses, excuses. Does anyone have a good owl recipe in case I catch one?
    LuAnn bores me. If I want to be bored I can watch network TV


    I’ll miss Alex also. But not that awful Simon. I’m actually considering watching again with Jill and Kelly out. But there’s still that arrogant LuAnn. I can’t understand how Andy could hear the Jill thunder and completely miss the LuAnn roar. It’s interesting – glancing through the responses to Jill’s weekly Bravo blogs it’s all love and gushing. Bravo has completely lost control of the franchise. Amazingly, Andy is letting the housewives dictate what can be printed about them.


    I will miss Alex. I always enjoyed her and her co- dependant other half. The Twittering was an extension of the show and I found it entertaining in that RHoCrazyland way. Yes, I know I need to hang my head in shame and/or get some sort of psychotropic meds but where would the fun be in that?
