While some Bravo housewives take their unpopularity with viewers in stride, case in point – Nene Leakes, it seems others will go to any lengths to try to get viewers to like them once again, case in point – Jill Zarin of the Real Housewives of New York City.
Jill, who’s popularity has taken a huge dive this season, all thanks to her mean girl behavior, simply refuses to be un-liked. And just how far is Jill willing to go to get you the viewer to like her again? Well according to the new UsWeekly cover story, Jill went as far as to hire 4, yes 4 media consultants to try to help her repair her tarnished image. The US article reveals Jill even had the “four media related people sleep over at her house to prep her for the reunion show.”
So what does it mean when one woman has 4 media consultants helping her? Well it means 99.98% of what she says and does is contrived and calculated, whether it be asking her former BFF to be her friend again just two weeks after calling her wedding a “circus,” or even leaking out a story to the press to falsely proclaim she and the said former BFF are friends again.
And just this weekend, Jill, who according to the UsWeekly article uses her mean girl behavior to overcompensate for being unpopular in High School, posted the following message on her twitter and facebook–
“I will not tolerate haters on my my Facebook and Twitter accounts anymore. The show is now OVER. I will be blocking anyone following the serious haters as well. Dina gave me good advice. You know who I mean. Haters come with being a celebrity..we all have them but I will do my best to block them and their followers. Peace and Love…not hate. If I blk you by accident. post on jillzarin.com and I will get it.”
It seems Jill and her co-star Kelly Bensimon are very fond of the word “hater.” And its safe to guess that a “hater” in the eyes of Jill is anyone who is critical of her vile bad behavior this season. Oddly enough, Jill/Susan Saunders was caught earlier this year, harassing and threatening someone on Amazon.com who gave her book a bad review.
Jill, who got a lot of sympathetic comments on her facebook (but then again if she got negative ones, we would have no way of knowing considering she reportedly pays someone to delete negative comments) decided to turn it up a notch just hours later, posting the following –
“So..we are being harassed and threatened by a family from chicago and Alabama. We have contacted authorities. I will block anyone who is linked to them per postal service law enforcement until they finish investigation. This is a serious crime and all evidence has been handed over. If you are involved in anyway..I sugg…est you stop. Enough is enough. It is NOT funny or a joke.”
What’s interesting is celebs or people in the public eye are always told to NEVER publicly discuss or announce to the public that they are being threatened or harassed. One of the main reasons for this rule is to not encourage other nutjobs to do the same. And by the way, getting threats or being harassed is very common for celebrities, reality stars included. What is rare however is deciding to announce it to the world.
Jill, being the crafty one that she is, however is more concerned with manipulating getting the fans to feel sorry for her than following proper protocol. And considering the long list of Bravo Housewives who are not too popular with the viewers, it’s highly unlikely Jill is the first one to receive threats or be harassed. She is however the one to announce it to the world. But then again, perhaps it’s not Jill’s fault. Maybe one of the four media consultants she hired advised her to do so. Ahh that crafty Jill!
