News of Jill’s return to RHONY first broke after Bravo released the sneak peek at season 9 and just this week, sources told TV Deets exclusively that she will make “multiple appearances” on the upcoming season. However, in a new interview, Andy claims that Jill’s return is much more short-lived.
“Jill appears for a minute,” he tells E! News, comparing her return to that brief appearance on Scary Island. “But it’s great to have her back.”
Additional sources close to the show tell us that Andy is playing things close to the vest as Jill’s return is supposed to be a surprise for the rest of the cast. “She’s filmed more than once, but what’s up for debate is what will actually make it on air,” our source tells us exclusively.
“The new season is excellent, and it’s not even all in the trailer,” continues Andy, discussing the juicy drama to come this season. “I mean, there’s so much we left out.”
While we hope that Jill makes a full-fledged return to RHONY, it’s clear that isn’t a done deal. The trailer for season 9 is one of the most entertaining ones ever released by Bravo and we’d be lying if we said we weren’t counting down the days until April 5th.
