Jill continued, “Even though I haven’t been on the show in many years, I’ve kept myself in the public eye deliberately to help me build my brand and stay relevant when it comes to Housewives and giving my opinion. I’m still a big fan of the franchise. I’m also appearing on Season 2 of The Real Housewives Mashup, which will air late spring-early summer.”
