According to a new report from theNew York Post, her team was so concerned about the WWHL segment that someone secretly taped the full interview just in case.
Jill herself has now admitted that someone from her camp recorded the full chat in secret. “Someone in my party did use an iPhone, because they love me and wanted to protect me,” she said, “to make sure I remembered what I said, and that what I said was accurately edited. It was for my own protection.” … Or ammunition?
This little incident, though, may put a damper on things. While the network itself had no comment about the incident, a source did say, “Secretly taping an interview is no way for Jill to get herself back on the network . . . or any network, for that matter.” Oy vey.
For what it’s worth both Andy and Jill have made light of the situation. Andy coolly quipped onTwitter, “Beware former Housewives with tape recorders!!” andJill answered back, “This is why we all love you!!!” Sheadded, “No war.. Peace and love. It was great interview with 1.3 million viewers. I think Andy is cute and funny and like big brother.”
Andy doesn’t appear to be too happy about it. After his tape recorder tweet, Andy tweeted at RHONJ star Caroline Manzo that he’s “as mad as Teresa at your last reunion” about the Jill incident.
