Jill Zarin Scheming For A TV Comeback

We had hoped that Jill Zarin's 15 minutes were up, but it looks like everyone's least favorite Real Housewives star is negotiating a reality TV comeback.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Zarin, who was let go from Real Housewives of New York City after (former) fans pretty much demanded it, may star in a new Fox reality show tentatively called The Beverly Jillbillies. (Obviously the worst title ever, and the concept feels a bit like a Simple Life ripoff.) The show would chronicle Zarin's move from New York to Los Angeles, where she is reportedly house-hunting.

I'm sure she's already started tweeting/harassing all of the Beverly Hills housewives about wanting to get together: Lisa, let's get the doggies together! Kyle, let's have lunch with your sister Kathy! Brandi, let's go shopping for wedges!

It's unlikely Zarin would be able to attract broadcast-worthy ratings to Fox. She should probably stick to cable.
