Like Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Jill Zarin has returned.. To television that is. The ousted Real Housewives of New York star announced on her blog she has landed special correspondent position with Good Afternoon America. Zarin wrote:
I want to share some great news."Hollywood called" again. Well not exactly...it was a producer from GMA. I was asked to be a special correspondent on a new afternoon show on ABC called Good AFTERNOON America, that will air live from Times Square daily. It is the afternoon version of Good Morning America (GMA) and will be co-hosted by Lara Spencer and Josh Elliott. I am doing a weekly reality show segment on Wednesdays at 2pm...giving my opinion on reality shows. My first show will air July 11th and covers shows like America's Got Talent, The Bachelorette and maybe a housewife show?? It is part time and yet still gives me an opportunity to talk to all of you every week and keep it real. I love that I am "LIVE"...you never know what I will come up with right?
Please enjoy the rest of your holiday and see you next week! READ MORE
Andy Cohen Names Brian Frons "Jackhole of the Week" During Susan Lucci's Appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live!By Jamey Giddens on May 03, 2012
If I hadn't already been a big fan of Bravo's Andy Cohen, tonight's installment of his talk show Watch What Happens Live definitely would have done the trick! Cohen had The Avengers star Mark Ruffalo and soap goddess Susan Lucci on as guests.
During the chatfest, Cohen shared his memory of writing Lucci a letter when he was 19. Shocker of shockers, the All My Children legend actually went to lunch with her fanboy and continued to run into him over the years, as he climbed his way to the top of the television heap. Speaking of TV execs, Cohen won the love of soap fans worldwide when he named Brian Frons "Jackhole of the Week," due to the former ABC Daytime chief's decision to cancel All My Children. Awesomeness!
