Andy Cohen, consider yourself warned: former "Real Housewives of New York" cast member Jill Zarin will be asking the tough (and awkward) questions on "Watch What Happens Live" on Oct. 15.

Zarin, along with "RHONY" co-stars Cindy Barshop, Kelly Bensimon and Alex McCord, were fired from the show and in season five they were replace by Aviva Drescher, Carole Radziwill and Heather Thompson.

Zarin told the New York Daily News she thought the 5th season of "RHONY" was "boring."

Still hostile about being let go from the series, Zarin told the New York Daily News that she will confront her former boss, Cohen, on his show "Watch What Happens Live."

"I'm really grateful" to be a guest on his show, "even though it's 15 months overdue," Zarin said.

Don't expect Zarin to mince her words even if she will be on live TV.

"I'm going to ask him why I was fired."

Although she was initially upset about being let go from the popular series, Zarin isn't shying away from the spotlight. She wants to do a reality show with her family that would be "funny like a 'Seinfeld' or 'Everybody Loves Raymond' kind of show. Not like 'Housewives.' "

"I feel like they killed me off and I didn't get to say goodbye ... I was licking my wounds and needed to retreat," Zarin said. "It really affected me, but now I'm strong and ready to go back and share my life with America."

So why was Zarin fired in the first place?

She was told poor test-group responses, based on the "RHONY" season four reunion, were to blame. But she thinks that was at the fault of the editors.  

In mid-August, Celebuzz asked Zarin why she believed the ratings had fallen 21 percent from last season over the first two episodes. Zarin thought the drastic change to the show's casting was the culprit.

She told Celebuzz: "I think they changed the formula that worked. I don't know why. I think they changed it too soon. Why would you change the formula of a show when the ratings were up 15 or 20 percent last year? I say, you change the show when the ratings are down, because then there's only one way to go, hopefully, and that's up."
