Is Jill Zarin Asking Fans to Boycott RHONY Until She’s Hired Back?
Jill Zarin has a plan. It may not be elegantly proposed, or even make much sense, but the recently fired Real Housewives of New York star thinks she’s figured out a way to get back on the Bravo show that made her famous.
Allow Jill to explain how her current circumstances are exactly the same as Bobby Ewing’s on the original Dallas. On her personal blog, Jill writes the following:
Remember Dallas? ( probably not!) Well it’s back BTW. One season was completely erased and called “The Dream” season because the rumor was they fired Bobby Ewing who was rumored wanted too much money and then when the fans backlashed against the network with a Boycott, call in. write in campaign ( there were no blogs, emails, tweets or Facebook back in the OLD DAYS) . The had to “eat crow” and bring back Bobby with a huge raise.
We think we follow Jill’s underlying logic. When Patrick Duffy’s character, Bobby Ewing, was killed off in Season 7, producers realized how upset fans were that one of their beloved characters was gone from the show. Their solution was to bring Patrick back at the end of Season 8, calling the entire season a “Dream” season, essentially conceding that nothing viewers had watched and enjoyed that year had actually happened.
Jill continues, “If you are even thinking that the cast could be asked back..the fans would have do pull off a DALLAS move.” However, the Skweez Couture entrepreneur is quick to add, “I am certainly not advocating anything..just thinking of all the scenarios out loud.”
Well, maybe Jill will get her wish. We asked RHONY fans if they want Jill back and a whopping 50% say they want their old Housewives back on the show.
The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
