Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin is firing back at what she calls her “haters.”  This weekend Zarin stated that she was forced to contact authorities when these so-called haters posted her address online and requested that folks send threatening mail.  The Season Three villain also used her public Facebook page as a platform to respond and defend her family.

Her first comment posted Saturday morning:

The harassment follows the end of Real Housewives of New York City‘s volatile third season in which building tensions between Zarin and her co-star Bethenny Frankel finally burst.  In the finale that aired this past Thursday, the two discussed their differences and how “totally berserk” their relationship had become.  Here is a clip from that conversation:

The lunch conversation is awkward but there does appear to be an attempt by Jill and Bethenny to make nice.  They both get teary-eyed and there’s a great sense of regret over what has happened.  Bethenny sees Jill’s apology as a response to all the negativity she has been receiving, which would seem to include her current situation and her “haters.” 

Fans of RHNYC can get pretty passionate about their ladies, but in this case it looks like they went a little too far.  Zarin followed up on her original Facebook post with the following later Saturday evening:

Some fans of the show question the sincerity of these comments, but when Jill starts mentioning the authorities and “per postal service law enforcement,” I tend to believe that she was indeed threatened and that she has a right to be defensive and to regulate her Twitter and Facebook accounts.  You can be “Team Jill” or “Team Bethenny,” but intruding into their actual lives and hurting their families are not productive ways to express support for your team. Save that for the World Cup later this summer!
