According to a new interview with Page Six at Z100’s Jingle Ball on Friday, Zarin explained, “I heard that one of the girls doesn’t want me back on the show and that’s the way it is, she’s in charge.”
Zarin has to be referring to none other than Bethenny Frankel, who is returning to the reality series for Season 7 after departing the show in 2010.
Zarin and Frankel were former best friends who had a very public falling out five years ago, before Frankel left RHONY.
During the 100th episode special, Frankel described the feud, saying, “Jill liked to control the process. She had, like, a big plan that she was going to take me down and it backfired in her face… whoa, this is one cunning bitch… I’m not angry, but she’s not a person that I would want in my life.”
And despite the fact that Zarin said recently that she would like to reconcile with Frankel, it seems that it just isn’t in the cards for these two ladies, especially if Frankel is the housewife Zarin is referring to. And even more especially if Frankel really managed to control the show enough that she’s the reason Zarin didn’t return.
All in all, Zarin admitted that leaving the reality show was best for her.
“There are some things about it I miss, there’s a lot of things I can’t personally handle,” she told Page Six. “It’s not healthy for me.”
Instead, Zarin has moved on to starring in a new project.
“I actually got cast in a scripted series which I can’t talk about yet, which will start filming next summer,” she revealed. “It’s huge, it’ll change my life.”
