Now this just seems like a big waste of time. There is an ever-growing petition to have the one and only Jill Zarin thrown off of The Real Housewives of New York. The online petition launched soon after the whole Bethenny baby announcement fiasco. Don’t these people know that the big bad’ element is always good for ratings and there is no way, no way that they’d get rid of such a polarizing and controversial figure. But that isn’t stopping these very verbal Jill haters.
The petition simply reads: Please sign the petition to remove Jill Zarin from the New York City Housewives show for Season 4. Thank you and please pass this link on.
And so far there have been 533 (and counting) signatures along with oodles of opinions, attacks and just pure venom. One thing I learned, people really really hate her!
Check out some of what they said here:

Comments: Please for the love of GOD get her off of that show! PLEASE!
Name: Christine M. on May 9, 2010
Comments: We do not need to glamorize this sort of women on television.
Name: Katie on May 9, 2010
Comments: This woman has made the show go from fun and snarky at times to downright disturbing each and every episode. Continuing in to real time with Amazongate and Bethenny’s incorrect and inappropriate birth announcement. Get rid of this Narcissist. NO FUN.
Name: Rebecca on May 9, 2010
Comments: GodJilla is a pathetic excuse for a human being. Please Bravo get rid of her! It can’t be advantageous for Bravo to keep her on – GodJilla is always sticking her foot in her mouth – from promoting “her” fabric company and her lame book to “announcing” Bethanny’s delivery of a “boy”. Bravo should concentrate on Bethanny’s new show being a success (and a breath of fresh air).
Name: Alana C. on May 9, 2010
Comments: Jill Zarin threatened my cat and claimed I wrote a negative review of her book because I sm “jealous” and an antisemitist. This kind of evil does not belong in the public eye or representing any network. For me, this is now personal.
Name: PattyS on May 10, 2010
Comments: As a Jewish woman, I am so completely embarrassed that she and I are of the same religion. She is such a disgrace, I can’t even begin to tell you. Allow me to apologize to women everywhere for her behavior and I assure you that not all Jewish women behave as she.
Name: Kell on May 10, 2010
Comments: I truly believe that Jill tried to ruin Bethenny’s career. Jill needs to be fired for all of the hateful things she has done to Bethenny and the others. Please fire Jill.
Name: Bow C. on May 10, 2010
Comments: Please replace her with somone actually interesting and represents NYC woman in a positive light. Not some middle aged wannabe who still acts like she is in high school. New York woman are sophisticated acheivers, what has Jill done with her life? All she does is whine and insult everyone. She is not even in the least bit attractive, inside or out.
Name: Elliot W. on May 10, 2010
Comments: Jill Zarin definitely does need to get a hobby
