Jill Zarin of RHONY cops to ‘liquid facelift’ after she’s rendered unrecognizable

Jill Zarin
Last week, we saw photos of Real Housewives of New York’s Jill Zarin looking like a completely different person after some obvious surgical intervention. Her nose looked different, her face was pulled and taut, and is she was a casual acquaintance of mine I would be hard pressed to identify her after all that plastic surgery.

Zarin said around that time that she hadn’t had any work done, and that “If I did, I would be the first to admit it.” Only she wasn’t the first to admit it and it took a ton of people and media outlets calling her on her BS for her to own up to anything. She’s not copping to a nose job, and is claiming that her reshaped nose is the result of some contouring makeup. She also says she had a “liquid facelift,” meaning enough chemicals injected into her face to mold her into a plastic version of someone else.

On the Wendy Williams show (video below) Zarin said her dermatologist “injects Restalyne on the side [of the face] so it gives you a pull. You don’t fill in the smile lines, because that’s too inaccurate… People used to use silicone, don’t use that stuff. Then she does Botox down here [gestures to neck]… tightens the neck. It’s all about pulling and tightening. Here I’ve been doing [between the eyebrows] for 10 years. My forehead and here. But this is really the difference… since I’m 5 years old I’ve always had bangs.”

Look at this lady talk. Only her jaw moves. She claims to always tell the truth, but why didn’t she admit to this “liquid facelift” before, when it was so painfully obvious? It isn’t her hair that makes all the difference, her face looks like wax and it’s freakish. At least she didn’t mess with her lips yet. Wendy Williams is such a kiss ass telling her that she doesn’t look any different.

    If that’s only makeup on her nose, she should stop using it immediately.

  2. Jezi says:

    Maybe I’m nuts but I think she looks good. As long as she STOPS here.

  3. 6 says:

    Nobody puts baby in the corner

    Maybe she’s a big Jennifer Grey fan, pre- nose job of course.

  4. dread pirate cuervo says:

    @Jezi, I agree. But I think her nose looked better in the before picture.

  5. KJ says:

    Look at her with that ridiculous fake ponytail piece. Christ.

  6. maya says:

    Jill wants to be attractive. She is not unattractive, she looks ok.

  7. Rhiley says:

    I used to really like RHWONY but it is pretty boring this season (same goes for OC) and ALL of these women (Bethenny Frankel included) just seem so pathetic to me. Bethenny is going to drive her gay husband back into the arms of men with her constant squaking, and Jill is going to end up like Norma Desmond, sitting all alone in her New York penthouse with her vintage Louis Vuitton and her little dog. We all know the women on the OC are gold diggin, white trash, media whores and I think they kind of own it. But the New York cast is so damn snooty and mean, and there is just no reason for it. Who the hell are they except a bunch of insecure bitches? I think the most genuine of all of them is Ramona and that is saying something. Oh, and I immidiately thought of Jennifer Grey as well :-)

  8. Jackson says:

    I don’t know who this woman is, but I bet I know why she went on Wendy Williams to give her the scoop: no one else cared enough to have her on their show. She does look better in the vid than in her pics….even though her face doesn’t move very much.

  9. Samigirl says:

    I was a makeup artist for 3 years for MAC Cosmetics, and I’ve done TONS of makeup work on my guy friends that do drag. NO AMOUNT OF CONTOURING fixes a nose like that. ABSOLUTELY NOT. That b*tch got a nose job. Just admit it, it isn’t a huge deal. You aren’t a celebrity. Whatever.

  10. Quest says:


    Make up (huh) go figure. I wonder what line she uses that can change the look of her face.

  11. Cirque28 says:

    Don’t know who this woman is, but… wow. She looks younger, tighter, smoother afterward. But IMO soooo much prettier before!

    (I must remember this the next time I freak out over a few crow’s feet.)

  12. arock says:

    i think she looks good, whatever she had done.

    mind you i say that through gritted teeth because she is such an abrasive famewhore who spends most of her free time weaving lies and speaking out of the side of her mouth. her “accent” makes my ears bleed, its like a fog horn and a weed wacker mated. and that ponytail…jesus….

    …but hey, you cant push em all down the stairs…

  13. brin says:

    I agree, serena…she looked better before.

  14. Franny says:

    I love Jill. I believe her.

  15. meow says:

    her nose looks different because her head is tilted down in the 2nd picture. angles can make a nose look very different in photos.

  16. neelyo says:

    Oh, so they used a liquid scalpel to carve up her face?

    That ponytail is embarrassing. Why is a 50+ year old trying so desperately to look young? I suspect she’s worried her husband (meal ticket) is going to trade her in for a younger model.

  17. lucy2 says:

    I think she looked better before. She looks odd and fake now, I think. I’d be more shocked if one of these reality show “stars” DIDN’T get plastic surgery.

  18. Amanda says:

    I honestly don’t see any difference in her nose. I DO see the heavy contouring she attempted in the pic of her in the pink dress with no bangs.

    She looks better at the Wendy Williams show, but you can tell that there is a lot of botox there and the under eyes especially have been injected with fillers.

    She’s 47, she looks good. Don’t know about the long, fake, stripper pony tail, though.

  19. WillyNilly says:

    She kinda looks like Mariah Carey now. Weird.

  20. EdithP says:

    @Samigirl, I need you to do my makeup! I am AMAZED at some drag queens’ makeup, they are very skillful.

    With Jill’s corset and ridic ponytail, I’m feeling like putting a little Madonna Truth or Dare on.

  21. Samigirl says:

    HA!@Edith, girl I’m pretty good, but I’ve got some guy friends that blow me out of the water hahaha :) )

  22. RobN says:

    The only difference I see is a different hair color/style and some lighting differences. Of course I have a hard time getting too worked up about the various housewives, anyway, so maybe I’m not as tuned in to their various cosmetic procedures as I ought to be.

  23. dorothy says:

    She was beautiful before.

  24. The Bobster says:

    Are you sure the dates aren’t reversed? The “after” picture looks worse than the “before” one.

  25. Christine says:

    One trick of people who get plastic surgery is to get a very very different hairstyle when “unveiling” (but not admitting to) the plastic surgery. Hence the no-bangs and the stupid Madonna pony tail. I dislike this woman on RHONYC, but she looked better before. Something ain’t right with the after.

  26. Darlene says:

    Her nose only looks different because her chin is pointed more downward in the second photo. She’s also smiling more and her eyes are crinkled up. I don’t think she had much more than botox done.

  27. Pera says:

    Cover your face lady! You looked much better before.

  28. SFRowGuy says:

    “It not a face lift, it’s a …. a peel. That’s it.” Yeah, a peel — you peeled off someone elses face and put it on yours.”

  29. harfang says:

    To be fair, it looks way better than most hatchet jobs. If there was no original face to compare it to, it would look real to me. She was indeed beautiful before and this is indeed dumb — and yet I am impressed with that work there. Hopefully this style of hatchet jobs will gain in popularity with people who insist upon having them, and all our eyes will bleed a little less.

  30. X says:

    Have no idea who this is woman; generally don’t watch reality tv shows; am out of the loop as far as all the ‘housewives’ shows go; but I think the ‘work’ looks good on her. My 2 cents….

  31. Francesca says:

    I see your true colors Jill! That’d be a nose job and a face lift, I don’t care what YOU call it. Pleeze… you are so self oriented!

  32. alexandra says:

    I thought I was the only one who though Bethany’s husband is gayish. However, all these NYC shows most of the husbands seem gay.

  33. anonymoose says:

    It’s gonna be hell when the chem treatment wears off and her real face comes back. It will be a shocking jolt of a difference. How long will that take? Of course she’s aging in the interim, too….

  34. e.non says:

    you just know the other wives are loving this very public discussion of whether jill zarin did or didn’t go under the knife.

  35. fizXgirl314 says:

    Man, I don’t get what is happening to this society. We’ve become shallow, materialistic, over-commercialized, lacking attention span and just plain utterly shallow. It’s incomprehensible to me how someone can remove the features that make them recognizable as “them”… doesn’t it disturb you when you look at yourself in the mirror? I dunno man, I’m worried about the future. I’ve been mentally extrapolating social trends and it won’t be long before it’s IDIOCRACY for real… I’m scared :-|

  36. Ur Favorite Bartender says:

    Wendy Williams, there’s a difference between being polite and being a fake kiss ass. Your overtly energetic and hyped enthusiasm makes me wanna punch you. Woman, you are sad sad sad! :(

  37. RHONYC says:

    again…she lost weight, got the eyes done & had the hump in her nose removed.

    that thin look as you age makes you look older in my opinion.

    i still think she looked better in her before photo.
    some people fix sh*t when it ain’t even broke.
    dummy. :-(

  38. Kiska says:

    Jill looked wayyyyy better before.

  39. Tiffany says:

    I was watching the first season reruns this weekend when it was pouring and she has DEFINITELY had a nose job between then and now. No way around it. Jeez, I am 42, have had nothing done and look 20 years younger than her. I thought she was 57. Back away from the surgeon’s chair ladies. My mother made the mistake of a boob job and face lift and peel a few years ago. I hate it. She looked so pretty before, now it just looks funny. :(
    Remaining injection and surgery free myself to PRESERVE my looks.

  40. sorrento says:

    Wendy is a big kiss ass, she’s so happy to have anybody on her lameass show she mows them over with sloppy accolades, that’s why I don’t miss a show!

  41. Cinderella says:

    I love the part where she says she didn’t know she had such a pretty face..then she caught herself.

    Jill loves Jill. No doubt.

  42. Beyoncca says:

    I Love Jill
    She’s Beautiful
    She’s Entertaining
    She’s Genuine
    She’s Family oriented
    She’s my absolutly favorite housewife
    Jill looked great before, now she’s even better.

  43. Beyoncca says:

    I wonder why Alex can’t get over Jill’s alleged hurtful comments. Yet, Alex forgave Bethenny last season when Bethenny said “Alex will crawl through a vent to get into a party”. Bethenny also said “Alex and Simon will show up to an envelpoe opening”. Bethenny is so clever.
    Alex is such a follower.Alex has no taste in fashion (i.e. the dress she chose to wear to Sonja’s art gallery)tacky.
    Alex couldn’t wait to jump on the “I Hate Jill” bandwagon and it’s obvious. FOLLOWER!

  44. MaudeLebowski says:

    She’s wearing a Twihard dominatrix corset over black denims. Get a stylist, fool.

  45. Sara says:

    I HATE her hair.

    I guess she looks younger and thinner but I liked her better before.

  46. JustBored says:

    I can’t stand Jill and that voice of hers grates my nerves.
    That being said, I think whatever she did makes her look a lot better. I think getting rid of the bangs was the major change, if she still had them the changes wouldn’t have been noticeable. That Pat Wexler is very good.

  47. milesaugust says:

    Nothing beats the butchered face of Christa Miller. She was hot, now hard to look at. Why do they do it?

  48. Alexis says:

    I don’t get it. Who has a nose job to enlarge their nose?
