The new season of ‘RHONY’ debuts June 4. Keep reading to find out which fired cast members are going to watch!

The fifth season of The Real Housewives of New York premieres June 4 on Bravo, and the question on everyone’s mind is: Will the show’s fired cast members — Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon and Alex McCord — be watching?!

“I have a little anxiety with the show coming back, because I have never had this outpouring of love from fans all over the world saying they will miss me,” Jill told The Huffington Post. “I didn’t expect they would miss me. That’s the circle of life. I thought they would move straight on to the new girls.”

Even though Jill admits that being let go has caused her “the highest highs and lowest lows,” the reality star is grateful for her time on the show. She even plans to auction off all her clothes from Seasons 1 through 4 and donate the money to charitable causes.

Nonetheless, Jill says she’s “unsure” if she will watch the new season, and says she misses the days of Season 1 when everyone was friends. Now that she’s been a part of the constant fighting and drama, Jill says she no longer needs to sees it.

Kelly has remained mum about whether she plans to watch, but has been busy promoting her fourth book “I Can Make You Hot” and serving as a celebrity ambassador for Food Bank.

With time to spare, Alex and Simon van Kempen launched the linen company, Aluxe Home and Hotel Collection, which is now in several hotels and will be sold in stores this fall. “It gave us time to focus on selling the line, which we wouldn’t have had if I was filming every day,” Alex admitted. “Post Housewives, we have chosen projects based on what interests us most, mainly kids and home, relationships and writing.”

Not only does Alex plan to watch — she’s going to blog her thoughts about every dramatic detail for her new gig at
