Jill Zarin has spoken out against reports that she was fired from The Real Housewives of New York City. On Thursday The Huffington Post reported that Zarin, 47, and her co-stars Kelly Bensimon and Alex McCord were let go from the Bravo reality series, but today Zarin's team says those rumors are not true.

The word from Zarin is that she has not decided either way whether or not she will return for a fifth season. "Jill has not been fired from The Real Housewives of New York City. The truth is that Jill is still in discussions with Bravo for season 5 and hasn't made a final decision about returning to the show," Zarin's rep told Us Weekly.

Other season 4 cast members seem not to be involved in the pink slip rumors. Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan are all presumed to be returning for season five. However, as the seasons progress, cast members of the many Real Housewives iterations are often added or subtracted for various reasons — often for no apparent reason at all.
