On the red carpet for the premiere of Bad Teacher on Monday, The Real Housewives of New York City's Jill Zarin revealed a new chapter in her ongoing feud with costar Ramona Singer.
"Ramona who?" Jill told PEOPLE when asked if she and Ramona had resolved their issues since their trip to Morocco. "Yeah, it's ugly."
It turns out that Jill now blames Ramona's husband Mario Singer for their latest spat.
"Last weekend, he shoved me. I was at a friends house for a dinner party," Jill said of Mario, who also attended the premiere. "I was on line for the buffet ... and Mario started screaming at me, uncontrollably. And then he pushed me – he shoved me with his hand. He was blaming me for his wife coming off badly on the show. He repeated things he thinks I said that he didn't like."
Ramona's response? "She likes to exaggerate things," she recently told In the Mixx. "And it seems like the only way she can get press is to say exaggerated things about me."
According to Ramona, Mario and Jill did come face to face at a party and he asked her about "making up stories," she said, but it never got physical.
But Jill isn't taking any chances. "If he goes near me, I brought my own bodyguard, Wayne, [to the premiere]," she said. "I had heard Mario was going to be here. I wanted to make sure nobody touched me."
