After a big casting shake-up this season on The Real Housewives of New York City, Jill Zarin seems to think Bravo needs her back.

But that's not going to happen.

"We wish Jill the best, but there is no consideration of her returning to the series," a network spokesperson tells PEOPLE.

The former Housewife, who was fired after the fourth season along with Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon, has publicly criticized the newly rebooted series and recently told the New York Daily News, "You don't change what works."

Kelly Bensimon: My Kids Don't Think I'm Cool

She may be a Real Housewife, but that doesn't make Kelly Bensimon cool, according to her kids.

"They think I'm their mom," she said of her daughters, Sea Louis, 12, and Thaddeus Ann, 10. "Because I'm their mom I'm not really cool, but their friends like me, so I guess my cool factor is like a two on a [scale of] one to ten – better than a zero."

Like most children fear that their parents will embarrass them, the Real Housewives of New York City star said her daughters are no different, and have told her to "tone it down" in the past.

"They tell me to wait outside the school and not come in and not to embarrass them," Bensimon, 42, told PEOPLE at Tao Las Vegas's 5-year anniversary party Saturday. "I'm like, I'm not even saying anything."

Bethenny Frankel got married, had a baby and documented it on her own Bravo reality show. But the Housewife isn't forgetting about her roots: she's going to be re-joining The Real Housewives of New York City next season, according to one of her costars.

"Bethenny will come on a little bit. We need a Bethenny moment," Ramona Singer tells PEOPLE about the show's upcoming fourth season, adding that the other women – Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon, Jill Zarin, Sonja Morgan and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps – "have been renewed."

In June, Frankel said she didn't see herself returning as a Housewife unless there were a few key changes. De Lesseps at the time also said she was unsure about her future with the hit Bravo show.
