Jill and Dorinda Medley exchanged a few verbal jabs while filming the spin-off. The two alums quarreled over the demise of their friendship. Dorinda blasted Jill and revealed the OG's hopes to rekindle their friendship in an effort to get them both cast back on RHONY. But after wrapping the second season of the Real Housewives mashup, Jill and Dorinda weren't on the list of alums asked to make a comeback. Tamra Judge and Taylor Armstrong were cast on The Real Housewives of Orange County. It's a return for both alums but Taylor's first in Orange County. The recasting of the alums put more eyes on the other housewives who weren't asked to return to their original franchises.
Executive producer Andy Cohen made a joke about Jill being among the uncasted alums while hosting Watch What Happens Live on Monday. "Taylor Armstrong is returning to Bravo on ‘The Real Housewives of Orange County,’" Andy announced, as captured by Page Six. He noted that Taylor is the first Housewife to move "from one city to another" making it the perfect transition from her start on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Andy also couldn't resist the urge to subtly shade Jill Zarin who appeared alongside Taylor on RHUGT. “In unrelated news, Jill Zarin is closing on new homes in Potomac, New Jersey, Beverly Hills, Orange County, Atlanta, Miami, Dubai and Salt Lake City," Andy jokingly said. “Just kidding! I love you Jill,” he added.
Jill was open about her hopes of rejoining RHONY. She explained how she enjoyed spending time with the ladies and sharing details about her life. But she insisted that she would only want to return as a friend and not a full-time cast member. Jill and Dorinda got into it after Jill invited herself to join Eva Marcille's radio show. While Jill was only joking, Dorinda took it seriously and scolded Jill for coming off as thirsty. The other housewives agreed that Jill likes attention.
Dorinda and Jill have continued shading each other since wrapping The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip. But their quarrel apparently wasn't to impress producers. Announcements have been made about the RHONY Legacy spin-off. So far, Luanne de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan are the only confirmed cast members. Maybe Dorinda and Jill will receive an invite to hash out their differences. The fans would likely enjoy a cameo or two from the alums. So far, Jill hasn't received any word on making a comeback. But, Andy's light shade could be a hint at her potential return. Jill's fingers are likely already crossed.
