Real Housewives of Atlanta

Jill Zarin Says She’s Responsible for Bethenny Frankel’s Success

Former New York Housewife Jill Zarin is strongly suggesting that she was the driving force behind former RHoNY co-star Bethenny Frankel’s push into the Bravo spotlight and subsequent spin-off success.

When asked about her Real Housewives of New York salary in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Jill revealed, “I didn't get to make the money I feel I deserved. I didn't just help make the show popular; I cast it. I brought in Bethenny [Frankel], and I don't get a percentage of anything she spins off.”

While Jill isn’t trying to take credit for Bethenny’s Skinnygirl empire, she is insinuating that hard-working Bethenny owes her time on RHoNY (and, by association, her later spin-offs Bethenny Getting Married? and Bethenny Ever After) to her.

We love Jill Zarin, but this latest claim seems like a bit of a stretch!
