  • Is a 'Real Housewife' being 'Sqweezed' out of next season?

    “Real Housewives of New York City” star Jill Zarin may be “Sqweezed” out of the fifth season of the series, and she’s not happy about it.

    “Jill would re-sign tomorrow if she could,” a source told the New York Post. “She has been pitching herself very aggressively to keep her on next season, because she’s terrified she’ll be phased out. She would love to have her own show like (former “Housewives” star) Bethenny Frankel, but she’s not getting it.”

    Zarin’s former BFF Frankel, who stars in Bravo’s “Bethany Ever After,” recently sold her Skinnygirl cocktail line for a reported $120 million, has written a best-selling book and plans to launch a skincare line this fall.

    Meanwhile, none of the current “Housewives” have signed contracts for the new season, and producers reportedly are itching to add “two or three” fresh faces to the cast.

    When contacted by the Post, a rep for the “Housewife” explained that Zarin is “focused on her shapewear brand Skweez Couture” and is “incredibly busy with other projects.”

    A Bravo rep declined to comment.
