Real Housewives of New York City Book Cover Shoot

Two Jersey Shore castmates landed a book deal yesterday and we joked: In this celebrity-obsessed publishing environment, could reality TV shows replace creative writing MFA programs? Then, we uncovered the sobering video clip embedded above–a book cover shoot featured inside a reality TV show.

The Bravo reality show Real Housewives of New York City recorded that book cover shoot for Jill Zarin. She’s a member of the Housewives cast and co-author of Secrets of a Jewish Mother: Real Advice, Real Stories, Real Love. The reality TV star co-wrote the book with her mother and sister, both celebrities as well.

Here’s more about the book: “In what could be thought of as the Jewish Mother’s Guide to Life, Jill Zarin, the breakout star of Bravo’s hit series, The Real Housewives of New York, teams up with her sister, Lisa Wexler, award-winning host of daily radio program The Lisa Wexler Show, and her mother, the estimable Gloria Kamen who made a splash on Jill’s series last year. Secrets of a Jewish Mother shows readers that being clear about what you want is the best policy, and standing up for yourself and your family is always the right way to go.”
