For so many years, Latinos have turned to telenovelas like Miramar and Pasion de Gavilanes for drama and suspense on television. But then came reality television and everything changed. This week on MY Lifestyle Extra, we had an intimate chat with Jill Zarin, who is one of the most known personalities in the genre.

For four seasons, Zarin was the star of the hit reality show “The Real Housewives of New York City” on the Bravo network. But she’s not just a star for the screen. Zarin is a driven entrepreneur, heading both her own clothing and jewelry lines. She is also the author of the book “Secrets of my Jewish Mother.”

Also this week, Television Personality Jackie Guerrido responds to MY Lifestyle Extra regarding recent comments by her ex Don Omar. Watch the video to check out the new developments in the drama. You cannot miss it!
