The Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin is continuing her fight against bullying and defamation. This week, Jill hosted the GLAAD OUT Auction in New York City to help raise awareness, and co-stars Kelly Bensimon, Ramona Singer, and Alex McCord came out to lend their support.
"I'm so excited to work with GLAAD to help plan this event and raise funds for their work to combat bullying and grow acceptance of gay people," Jill told HollywoodLife.com. "The way we view others is largely shaped by media images we see every day, so I'm thrilled to support GLAAD to make sure these images build understanding and support."
Kelly applauded her friend and fellow 'Wife, "This event means a lot of things to me on many different levels... But the most important thing is I'm here to support my friend Jill Zarin and the art world and to combat one of the most serious issues of today."
Ramona added, "I just believe everyone should be treated equally, whether it's their gender, race, or sexual preference!"
Now that the event is over, Jill is already on to helping out another charity. She tweets, "As you plan your Thanksgiving meal, don't forget about those who are hungry. Pls make a donation 2 Share Our Strength @ http://strength.org"
What a big heart!
Mrs. O, you said it. How many times can she misuse that word? Can someone explain to KKBS the difference between "systematic and systemic?" Who gave her a college degree? Columbia? How proud they must be.
Seen you on a cooking show with Emeril, you looked great!! I am so happy you have taken up this cause on bullying!!
Kelly & Jill are the biggest bullies on the eastern seaboard. Their frequent target is Alex. Maybe the next charity cause they undertake is an advocacy for hypocrisy.
ewww Paula C, nasty.... Jill, glad you are fighting bullying - as one who was bullied, I appreciate it. Maybe you can look at your own behavior though, because you are kind of a bully (sorry). I do love you, but, come on, you like to get people to gang up on others, the way you did to Bethenny. You're all about playing the victim, but in essence, you are the biggest bully on the show.
You ARE the bully!!!!!!!!!! So you are still in the "Do as I say, NOT as I do mode", you'll do anything to put the spotlight on yourself. Some things never change
Jill you are amazing. I know a lot goes on that is edited to the floor. You are by far the prettiest lady on the NY house wives. I think they are having a power kick on who is the top woman on the show. Little do they know everyone is the star. Like dugh. But the blonds. They leave one knowing NY is a red to dark haired city. If the one with the bulgging eyes could go to the doctor with Beth and maybe have a little or a lot of eye sharing then they might look better. I know that may be an ugly thing to say. But truth is truth. I thought whats her faces eyes were going to pop out on the run way and Beths were going to come out the back of her head. Oh, and you don't have to do anything anout Beths show. her life is dull. Sorry but with her mouth, I can understand why her parents closed that door. I'm just saying...
