Although Jill Zarin is no longer on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City, she did leave some loose ends that fans still wonder about – especially when it came to castmate Ramona Singer and her husband Mario’s fidelity.

During Season 4, the Zarin Fabrics queen mentioned on-camera that she had heard rumors that Singer’s husband was cheating on her. Singer says the two former castmates dealt with it when the cameras weren’t rolling.

What words were exchanged between the two off-camera?

“She apologized,” Singer, 55, tells Celebuzz. “Before she knew she wasn’t going to be asked back, she wanted to say she was really sorry. She said horrible things about Mario, too. There were other things, too, that were just as bad. She said to the press that at a party Mario hit her. He never hit her, but she did it to get into the press. She went to the press and made up anything to get her name in print. She is actually pathetic.”

Recently, Bravo had to squash reports that the fabrics queen would make a return to the series. And when we asked Singer about the networks’ statement on Zarin, she declined to comment specifically.

“Do you even want to give Jill more press?” she asks. “Do you even want to go there? How about no comment?”

That may be unavoidable. Zarin has been teasing a return to television since Bravo fired her and three other castmembers last September. This past week, it would seem that Zarin made good on her promise. She announced that she had just landed a special correspondent job on reality shows for ABC’s upcoming daytime show, Good Afternoon America.

A show rep could only confirm to Celebuzz that Zarin would appear on the Good Morning America spinoff next week.

The Real Housewives of New York City airs Mondays at 9 PM on Bravo.
