Did Jill Zarin Get Alex McCord Fired from Real Housewives of New York?
First, there was speculation that Ramona Singer may have played a role in Jill Zarin’s untimely exit from Real Housewives of New York, and now, Alex McCord is pointing the finger at Jill for getting her dismissed from the show.
Alex told Good Morning America that Jill “has been trying to get me off the show for a number of years. She succeeded...She's a manipulator and she's very good at feeding information to her own end.”
Alex’s husband Simon van Kempen added, “Jill sometimes is still very much stuck in junior high as the girl who was unpopular, who was bullied. And 30 years later, she's still there.”
Did he really just bring up junior high school? Low blow, Simon!
However, a rep for Zarin tells Us Weekly, “Alex and Simon's allegations represent the type of negativity that Jill is eager to move on from. Jill will continue to take the high road and wish Alex and Simon nothing but the best.”
We gotta hand it to Jill, she’s remained uncharacteristically calm and poised during this whole debacle. Her rep continued, “As Jill proceeds with optimism, she is grateful to Bravo for a successful 4 year run on The Real Housewives of New York City and is focused on the national launch of her shapewear line, Skweez Couture at Lord and Taylor.”
