Strolling down Newbury Street, Jill Zarin, the villainess on Bravo's "Real Housewives of New York," said she has just one regret. And, surprisingly, it has nothing to do with Bethenny Frankel, here frenemy on the show. Zarin wishes she had a child attending college in Boston. "Then I could come back here," she said. Zarin was in town this weekend to attend her 25th college reunion at Simmons, and, of course, to hype her book, "Secrets of a Jewish Mother." Does it bother her that she comes across so badly on the show? Not really. "It's the way the it's edited, but I can't blame everything on that," she said. "I actually have a lot of fans who see the cup as half full, not half empty." And explaining why her daughter doesn't go to school here, Zarin had this to say: "She didn't want to go to BU, Emerson doesn't have a photography department, and anyone can go to Harvard."
