“Jill Zarin is a D-List reality star that stages her own paparazzi shots and story lines for press. What a loser,” is what TheDirty’s Nik Richie had to say about Jill. Now why the harsh words for the Real Housewives of New York City star you might ask? Well you need to read the email Jill had her “people” send to Nik this week –
“EMAIL: Hey Nik, I wanted to shoot over a possible item/sighting that my office has for your site regarding Jill Zarin and her Daughter Ally at Century 21 in NYC from yesterday. I’m attaching various different photos as I wasn’t sure which one’s fit best for your site. Let me know your thoughts as she looks super cute and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
A few different angles to take on it:
1) After a season full of drama and a weekend of harassment thanks to an anonymous posting of her address all over the internet, Jill Zarin sought some retail therapy with her daughter Ally yesterday at Century 21 downtown in New York. While shopping for everything from potential father’s day gifts for her husband Bobby to travel luggage for Ally’s upcoming summer trips out of the country, Zarin looked at ease, a far cry from the season finale of the hit Bravo TV Show where her fractured relationship with co-star Bethenny Frankel has made for headlines all season long.
2) Housewives of NYC startlet Jill Zarin was spotted shopping for potential father’s day gifts for her husband Bobby while at Century 21 downtown in NYC with her daughter Ally. The reality TV star had been receiving threatening mail to her home the last few days after her address was anonymously posted on the internet following the season finale of the hit Bravo Show but on this day it seemed that a little mother-daughter shopping therapy had her in good spirits.
3) Retail Therapy! Jill Zarin and her college-bound daughter Ally were seen shopping at Century 21 Downtown in NYC on Monday looking for everything from makeup and skin care cream, to father’s day gifts for her husband Bobby. While shopping, the reality TV starlet was overheard talking about her recent college reunion and how happy she is to have a break from the drama that occurred throughout the most recent season of Housewives of NYC.”
Jill’s crafty people were even nice enough to include this pic for the fake planted story.
So it seems when Jill isn’t busy planting negative stories about her co-stars in the press, she tries to plant good ones about herself. Jill trying to plant a story in the press about herself is actually not that bad, desperate and pathetic, but not the worst thing. But what really sticks out in this story is the fact that she tried to exploit the alleged threats she received for some cheap publicity.
We reported last week that Jill had posted on her facebook and twitter that a “family” in Alabama and Chicago were threatening her. According to Jill, the threats were so serious that she had to call authorities. When writing last week, I actually believed Jill, and believed she did receive these threats, but did however wonder why she wanted to use these threats to try to garner sympathy? As I posted last week, all celebrities and public figures are always advised to NEVER go public with being threatened, stalked, etc.
However, after reading this desperate email Jill had her people send to multiple media outlets, including TheDirty.com, I can’t help but think there’s a great chance Jill never received any threats. Someone who received a serious threat will not make light of it by trying to use it to get publicity. Plus Jill claims her home address was posted online, when in fact the only address that was ever posted online was the address to the Zarin Fabrics store, which was already public. I think if Jill did receive anything, it was likely hate mail at the worst, and not threats like she claimed.
If there’s one thing that has been evident by Jill’s behavior and actions off the show, it is that she has a desperate obsession need to be liked by fans, but it seems there’s something even more important to Jill than being liked. What you might ask? Well it seems Jill’s obsession to be famous trumps being “liked.”
The first photo is of Jill with Jon Gosselin, as Jill spent last July hanging out Jon and Michael Lohan. And despite the fact that the Real Housewives of NYC is going off the air this week, there’s a good chance we will be seeing more of Jill. Jill tweeted a photo of herself hanging out with Jonathan Cheban this past week. Who is Jonathan Cheban? Well he just happens to be the publicist of the biggest famewhore of them all, you know, the publicist of Kim Kardashian. It seems Jill is ready to up her ante. She will be infamous at all costs, whether we like it or not. But here’s to hoping Jill will take some well needed off her quest to be a famewhore, because quite frankly, I’m tired of writing reading about her. Jill’s desperation for famewhoredom is starting to channel that of Spencer and Heidi.
