“She’s A Yenta!”
We were shocked- in a good way- when the trailer for the upcoming ninth season of The Real Housewives of New York City debuted with Jill Zarin in it (read about that here). Recently, Cohen talked to AOL about Zarin’s appearance in the trailer, nothing that he didn’t even tell her before it aired. Read on for details.
Andy Cohen- We Didn’t Tell Jill Zarin She Was In The RHONY Trailer
“Jill is a Yenta!” Cohen dished to AOL. “She likes to talk, and I didn’t want her telling anyone that she was in the super tease.”
“You didn’t see that coming, right?” her added.
“I think it was better that way, actually,” he continued. “She emailed me that morning, and she was like, ‘My phone is blowing up! I had no idea!’ It was great … I just wanted it to come out [in the trailer].”
Cohen also talked about Zarin’s appearance, noting that, “She only appears once or twice. It’s fun, and it’s great to have her back! Look, I love Jill, and she’s obviously part of the reason the show is as successful as it is. She’s an original, and I told her 1,000 times, ‘Do not tell a soul that you’re doing this! Keep your mouth shut!’ But, it’s going to be great,” he said. “The truth of the matter is that we didn’t tell Jill that she was in the super tease, because we wanted it to be a surprise to everyone…”
We can’t wait to see Zarin back and feel like, after her appearance, she may be back full time for season 10 (read about that here).
