After Jill Zarin’s dismissal at the end of season 4 of Real Housewives of New York, some fans hoped she might be brought back for the sixth season. But it’s not going to happen.

According to the New York Daily News, the ratings for the first two episodes of the fifth season were down 21 percent in total viewers — from almost 2 million to 1.6 million. Zarin told the Daily News, “I’m happy that these new women are enjoying their fame; I’ve reached out and offered [Bravo] any support they need.”

A rep for Bravo told EW, “We wish Jill the best, but there is no consideration of her returning to the series.”
