"The Real Housewives of New York City" gave a shout-out last night to The Corcoran Group's Susan Breitenbach.
It took place when Jill Zarin and her husband, Bobby, were giving their daughter, Ally, a driving lesson in the Hamptons. "This is a great piece of land," Zarin says looking out the window. "Susan Breitenbach. I should call Susan."
Zarin sold her Sag Harbor home, shown here, in 2007, but worked out a deal to stay at the house for part of the summer for two years. Last summer, when last night's episode was taped, she stayed at Countess LuAnn de Lesseps' Bridgehampton house. "Can you imagine if we lived down the street from LuAnn?" Zarin asks as they drive around.
Asked about the scene, Breitenbach says Zarin gave her a heads up about it several days ago. Breitenbach says she sold Zarin's house to her in 2003 and later was the co-exclusive listing agent on the property when Zarin put it on the market.
So is Zarin working with Breitenbach to find a new place? "She's always looking," was all Breitenbach would say.
