Just because she isn’t a Housewife anymore doesn’t mean she doesn’t have an opinion. Real Housewives of New York alum Jill Zarin caught up with Life & Style exclusively at the Broadway opening night of Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations and she gave us her two cents on the Countess Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley drama this season.
The 55-year-old fabric mogul was pretty diplomatic when we asked who she felt was in the right between the two dueling Housewives. “I love them both,” she said. “It’s hard to pick sides.”
But she admitted the feud was definitely one to watch no matter the side — and no matter how dramatized it might be. “I think it makes good TV,” she explained. “I do think it’s real, but that’s why they pick those girls because it makes good TV too. I just hope they make up.”
“Well, I feel like we need to protect Luann as she is in recovery and that means she’s fragile, and she’s been courageous to take that step and that means we have to be there to support,” she revealed exclusively.
“We left off with the two screaming at each other,” the 55-year-old fashion designer explained about Lu and D started the new season. “I didn’t realize the whole summer went by and they didn’t talk to each other. I find that hard to believe because I let everything go, I know it’s more about what the person’s going through so when Dorinda said all these things to me, I was like ‘this isn’t about me, this is about Dorinda.'”
It seems like Housewives past and present have something to say about this fight — we can’t wait to see where it goes next.
