“Jill’s appearance solidified the likelihood that she will be featured on the sixth season,” a source close to the situation tells Radar. “Jill and Andy were even trending for a long time Monday night on Twitter. That is the kind of buzz that the network wants for the next season. Jill is a polarizing figure and she has a very, very strong personality.

“Jill is open to the idea of coming back to the show and would be willing to appear as a guest star. Viewers love to watch Jill tussle with Ramona Singer and LuAnn de Lesseps. There was no where near as much drama on the show this year, even with the addition of three new cast members after Jill, Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon were fired.”

“It felt like a death…..It felt like my funeral. I was heartbroken and I felt like [Bravo was] my parents and that when it was ‘Bethenny [vs.] Jill,’ you picked favorites,” Zarin confessed. “I even felt [my dog] Ginger got it bad.”

This isn’t the first time Zarin has been asked to return to the hit show, in January of this year a source told that Zarin had been invited back, but that she had declined to re-join.

“I thought about quitting the show during season 4, because my husband wanted his wife back,” Jill told Radar in an exclusive interview. “I had such anxiety and pressure to act a certain way and I was paranoid for a reason, because people were planning and plotting against me.
