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!
