Former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin may have been looking for some answers from Bravo exec Andy Cohen during her recent one-on-one interview on Watch What Happens Live, but she also now claims she was “testing the water” of her fan following to “see if the fans wanted [her] back.”

Speaking to Celebuzz, Jill said, “When Andy asked me to come on the show two weeks ago, I didn’t want to do it. I knew it would bring out a lot of feelings that I had put to bed and I didn’t want to rehash that again.”

The opportunity to see how her fanbase would respond, however, was what she claims drew her into doing the interview.

1.3 million viewers later, the phone’s been ringing off the hook — according to her — and she’s got her next move in mind already.

“I’ve been working on my own show — about me, my family, work,” she teased. “I have lots of characters in my life – with me, family members, customers and in my house. My nephew and my assistant are living with me. There’s lots of drama.”

There’s some serious back-and-forth going on in the rumor mill about whether Jill will be asked back to RHONY for Season 6 by Bravo, but it sounds like Jill’s busy readying a back-up plan for if and when that doesn’t happen.
