Jill Zarin Net Worth $35 Million
So how rich currently is Jill Zarin? Sources estimate that her net worth has reached the impressive amount of $35 million. Probably most of it has been accumulated from her work in “The Real Housewives of New York”, but also from her business projects.
Jill Zarin parents are Sol and Gloria Kamen: she grew up in New York, and after finishing high school she attended Simmons College School of Retail Management. On graduating, Jill started working at Filenes as an assistant. After a few years, she became a National Sales Manager and Vice President of Great American Knitting Mills Jockey Division.
In 2010, Jill was chosen as a representative of Kodak, and has appeared on the TV show called “Who Wants to be a Millionaire”. A year after that she began starring in the first season of “The Real Housewives of New York”. At the same time, she was working as a manager in her husband’s – Bobby Zarin’s – company “Zarin Fabric Warehouse and Home Furnishings”. These two positions have had the biggest influence on Jill’s net worth. Over the years, Jill Zarin has also appeared in various TV sitcoms such as “The Bonnie Hunt Show”, “Spin Crowd” and “White Collar”. In 2014, Jill appeared in the reality TV show entitled “Celebrity Wife Swap”, where she had an opportunity to switch lives with Jenna von Oy.
After Jill Zarin’s name became well-known, she released a body shapewear line called “Skweez Couture by Jill Zarin” and a bedding line called “Jill Zarin Home”, which have contributed to her overall net worth.
While by no means a famous writer, Jill has written a book entitled “Secrets of a Jewish Mother” with the help of her mother and sister. The main aim of this book is to give useful advice to women on different aspects of their lives – finances, dating, marriage, business and everything else.
In her personal life, Jill Zarin was married to Bruce Shapiro for 10 years and they have a daughter Allyson. Jill is now married to Bobby Zarin, the owner of “Zarin Fabric Warehouse and Home Furnishings”. Together they have her daughter, and a son named Johnathan (from Bobby’s previous marriage). To ensure her good looks, Jill has admitted to using Botox and Restylane injections, but mostly she uses make-up (she hired a personal make-up artist Jim Crawford) to alter her looks a little, and has never gone under the plastic surgeon’s knife nor has she any plans to do so. Jill is also an active participant in charity work, raising awareness of arthritis diseases through a foundation called Creaky Joints. Her interest in this cause started when Jill found out that both her daughter and her stepson suffered from this condition.
