Ever since she was dropped from "The Real Housewives of New York City," Jill Zarin has stayed in the limelight through guest appearances. She appeared on Oprah's "Where Are They Now" series and even sat down with Andy Cohen on his "Watch What Happens Live." Fans will once again see her on TV this summer.

On Monday, June 16, Naughty But Nice Rob reported that Jill will appear on ABC's "Celebrity Wife Swap." Filming for the episode, which will air on Tuesday, July 15, is already finished. The person with whom she swapped lives with is Jenna Von Oy.

According to one TV insider, the episode will be full of drama. For those who don't know, Jenna Von Oy is an actress, best known for her work as Six LeMeure on "Blossom" and as Stevie Van Lowe on "The Parkers." She is currently married to a computer data consultant, with whom she had a daughter with in 2012. Very likely, viewers will see a lot of drama resulting from Jill, who was very vocal about her parenting ways during her time as a New York City housewife, not agreeing with how Von Oy and her husband raise their child.

The TV insider predicted that if Jill's "Celebrity Wife Swap" episode does well in the ratings game, she'll get more opportunities. One opportunity may be the chance to return to "The Real Housewives of New York City," since the show isn't bringing in the viewers that it used to when Jill was on the show.

This isn't the first time that there have been mumblings about Jill Zarin being a New York City housewife again. In late March, Aviva Drescher even went on a radio show and claimed that Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill were going to be fired and replaced with Bethenny Frankel and Jill. However, it doesn't seem as if that's happening. When confronted with Aviva's claim by Carole, Andy Cohen didn't confirm it but rather expressed shock and surprise.
