What Is Jill Zarin's Daughter Ally Shapiro Up To? Her 'RHONY' Days Are Far Behind Her — PHOTOS
Don't get me wrong, I'm sure that there are plenty of great perks to having a mom who is a rich and famous reality television star, but still, I imagine that being the son or daughter of one of the Real Housewives has got to be pretty tough sometimes. These women are far from shy and being on reality TV means that they are essentially required to share every update about their lives. And when you're a mom, it makes sense that a lot of your conversations revolve around your children. I'm sure a lot of the Real Housewives kids have felt pretty embarrassed about their mothers oversharing on camera. One of the first kids who comes to mind is Ally Shapiro, Jill Zarin's daughter who was featured on The Real Housewives of New York City.
Jill got a lot of heat for making comments about her daughter's weight back when she was a cast member on RHONY. Those scenes were cringeworthy and tough to forget. Of course, the most interesting and potentially controversial scenes are always going to be the ones that air, so it's possible Jill's words weren't a good representation of her typical interactions with her daughter.
My point is that while us fans might know Ally for some not-so-positive RHONY moments, there is so much more to her. That said, let's take a look at what Ally Shapiro is up to these days.
She's A College Graduate
Ally double-majored in Film and Sociology at Vanderbilt University and graduated in May 2014. As you might remember from RHONY, she used to attend Sarah Lawrence before transferring.
She's In A Sorority
Ally was a proud member of the Kappa Delta Sorority at Vanderbilt.
She Was On Millionaire Matchmaker
Jill Zarin and Millionaire Matchmaker host Patti Stanger have been pretty open about their close friendship, so it's not too shocking that Ally went on the show to find a match. It's a little unclear to me if Ally and the man she was paired up with are still together, but it seemed like things were going well for a while!
She Is A Proud "Real" Kid
Even with all the Housewives drama, Ally is a proud alum of the franchise. She even posed for this photo with Gigi Hadid, the daughter of Yolanda Foster from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
She Still Resides In New York City
If you follow Ally on Instagram, you can see that she's been having a fun summer in New York City and really enjoys her time there.
She Is A Marketing Assistant
Ally has had a lot of great work experience over the years. She worked for AOL and Hearst Magazines. She currently works as a marketing assistant for BMF Media.
She Loves Britney Spears
I don't blame her for fanning out hard at Britney Spears' Vegas show. It would be a dream come true for any fan to attend.
She Loves Manicures
If you are in any need of some nail inspiration, you should follow Ally on Instagram. She always post photos of her her amazing manicures.
She Is Close With Her Mom
Ally and Jill are like yin and yang. Ally's calm presence complements Jill's outrageous personality very well and they are still as close as ever.
Ally will always be remembered for her time on Real Housewives, but it does not define her. Clearly, she is a well-rounded woman with a lot going on in her life, and I can't wait to see what more will come.
