Former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin made her way to CBS New York’s Reality Dish show yesterday (November 26) to cook up some of her family’s special recipes — just in time for the start of Hanukah — and to update fans on what she’s up to these days.
According to Jill, despite the drama that ensued before, during and after her Watch What Happens Live one-on-one with Andy Cohen, she’s still “so grateful” they gave her an opportunity to confront the issues face-to-face.
“It was great,” she explained. “It was really cathartic for me … I got a lot out, and I’m so grateful to them [Bravo]. And you never know what the future will hold. I’m really happy where I am now — non-stop working.”
She quickly turned the subject away from RHONY (perhaps to avoid answering once and for all whether she’ll be back for Season 6) and mentioned that her immediate plans include overseeing the expansion of her businesses and hitting Disney World with her grandchildren.
Jill also shared her family’s cherished latke recipe, which she said was cooked by her grandmother up until she passed at the ripe old age of 106. “This recipe has been coming in our family since the 1800s,” she said. “[My grandmother] was amazing. So I feel like I passed his legacy on to my daughter.”
