Jill Zarin headed to Fox for The Beverly Jillbillies?

Fired The Real Housewives of New York City star may soon be moving to Los Angeles and appearing on a show on Fox (!) that’s tentatively titled The Beverly Jillbillies (!!).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Fox is in talks with Zarin about her own show to be tentatively titled The Beverly Jillbillies, based on a fashion-out-of-water move on her part to Los Angeles. The show’s producers and Fox could not confirm, but Zarin did admit she is currently house-hunting in Los Angeles.”

About the only part of any of this that makes any sense to me is Jill Zarin getting her own TV show, because she certainly is a character. But on Fox? And about fashion? And with the word Jillbillies in the title?
