Jill Zarin Says Real Housewives of New York Not What She Signed Up For

Bamboozled or just a complainer? Jill Zarin has taken to her Bravo blog and lamented that the “Real Housewives of New York City” is not what she signed up for — literally. She claims the original concept was called “Manhattan Moms” and was promised to be fun and funny, not the dark, drama-filled nightmare that RHONY has clearly become.

Here’s what she says:

When I signed up to be on the show, it was called Manhattan Moms. It was supposed to be fun. Nothing I saw this week was fun nor has it been most of the season. The only “fun” or “funny” scenes for me were with my family. I didn’t want to fight or make up on camera and didn’t want negative energy around me. I still don’t and won’t. I was so disturbed and uncomfortable watching this week’s episode. It is hard for me to watch myself anyway, but this season is so dark and mean-spirited that I don’t feel connected to it at all. We filmed a lot of fun things but most of them ended up on the cutting room floor. There were a few fun or funny deleted scenes online (at bravotv.com) but they too were cut because they were considered “boring” or just don’t fit into the story line.

Does she have a valid point or is she just disappointed with the way she’s being portrayed on the show?
