Anyone doubting the veracity of Jill Zarin's insistence that her, um, renewed look is down to drinking plenty of water and changing up her skincare regime might want to get ready to fire up their HDTV.
That's because the Real Housewife of New York is trading her unscripted drama for the written variety and will be appearing with her suddenly smooth visage on White Collar in an episode set to tape tomorrow. And as it happens, she seems to be going Method with her debut part: she's playing (wait for it) a woman at a cocktail party. Typecasting has its benefits, after all.
As for the persistent rumors that the housewife has gone under the knife, her rep is playing it slightly more coy than the denying reality diva.
"For Jill to be fully recovered now, any work she had done would have had to be done while she was filming season 4 of The Real Housewives of New York City, so you will have to watch and see what happens." Or, you know, continue with the rampant speculation. We know which one we prefer.
