“I think you will definitely be seeing Jill popping up,” he confirmed.
Jill also spoke of her possible comeback to RHONY during an interview with Hollywood Life months ago.
“I will cross that bridge if it happens,” she said in August. “I’m open to all opportunities that come to me. I always say, say yes to everything; Or, you know, at least try to do everything and if it would work, if it could work out, sure.”
“I’m still very close with Luann and some of the other girls, so there’s no reason not to,” she added.
