Jill Zarin has some strong opinions about what needs to be done for “The Real Housewives of New York.”

During a recent appearance on her sister Lisa Wexler’s podcast, The Lisa Wexler Show, Zarin shared what she believed what wrong with this season of “The Real Housewives of New York.”

“I think the biggest problem with the show, which nobody talks about, is it’s called ‘The Real Housewives of New York,’” Zarin said. “There isn’t one housewife. And there’s not one boyfriend. And I think the lack of male energy on the show is the problem.”

Zarin continued, “It’s a lack of male energy, to either fight over or, you know, men are from Mars, women are from Venus. And I think that in a lot of ways is the success of the ‘Real Housewives’ brand as a whole.”

To back up her point, Zarin also used some examples of seasons with strong ratings that happened to involve the men on the show.

“When Bethenny [Frankel] told Luann that Tom [D’Agostino] cheated on her,” Zarin explained. “Which ultimately ended in her divorce. Again, it was a man. If you really think about the stuff. Ramona [Singer] getting divorced from Mario. The first few seasons of New York was so great because of Simon [van Kempen] and his red leather pants.”

Zarin was a cast member of “The Real Housewives of New York” during seasons one through four.

The Cast of ‘The Real Housewives of New York’ Are Currently in Shambles

Recently, rumors have been circulating that there is some serious drama happening behind the scenes with the current cast. According to a July 14, 2021 report from Page Six, filming for the reunion is currently on hold until September, as many cast members are fighting with each other and ratings are at an all-time low. Rumors also swirled that Ramona Singer was going to be fired, which caused drama between her and the producers after she threatened to bail on the reunion.

And, according to TMZ, Singer is still skeptical about the reunion because she is worried about being painted as a “racist.”
