Jill Zarin Ramona Singer The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Jill Zarin Claims She Was Pushed by Ramona Singer’s Ex-Husband Mario; Alleges Mario Was ‘Verbally Abusive’ To Ramona During Their Marriage

Jill Zarin‘s feud with Ramona Singer will go down as one of the most notorious feuds in Real Housewives of New York history. And while it’s no secret that Jill’s issues with Ramona spilled over to include Ramona’s then-husband Mario Singer – apparently there’s a lot more to their feud than meets the eye.

Thankfully, years after the drama went down Jill is ready to spill all the dirty details about her feud with Ramona and Mario.

During an appearance on Thursday’s Jeff Lewis Live, Jill revealed that an argument between her and Mario in 2011 turned physical when Mario pushed her. The Singers deny this ever happened.

“I thought about calling the police,” Jill, 55, said. “He literally put his hands on me and pushed me!”

“He was abusive,” she claimed of Mario. “I think he had a very bad temper, I’ve seen it!”

At the time, the alleged altercation made headlines as it was picked up and circulated by the rumor mill.

This altercation went down as season 4 of RHONY was airing. Apparently, Mario wasn’t happy with how Jill was trashing his wife in the press so he allegedly confronted her at an event in the Hamptons.

“Mario comes over to me and he puts his hands on me and he pushes me and goes, ‘I don’t like the way you talk about Ramona,’” Jill claimed.

“He came over to me in an aggressive way,” Jill insisted, adding, “He probably had something to drink.”

Following the incident, Jill immediately called her then-husband, the late Bobby Zarin.

“I go, ‘Bobby! Bobby get over here! Somebody get Bobby!’ ” Jill said. “And I go, ‘Mario just pushed me.’ And he goes, ‘So what do you want me to do about it?’”

While Bobby initally didn’t do anything, he eventually did have a sit down with Mario.

“I assume he said something ’cause Mario left me alone after that,” the former RHONY star said.

Jill also said she had witnesses who could back up her claims, including several “really important” producers from the Oprah show.

“They all witnessed it,” Jill said. “They were there.”

Meanwhile, Jill says she doesn’t know if Mario was ever physically abusive to Ramona during their marriage but says he was “verbally abusive.” Ramona and Mario were married in 1992 and split 2015 after she caught him having a very public affair with a 20-something.

“I don’t know if he’s ever did anything with Ramona, but I know he was definitely verbally abusive,” Jill alleged.

The Singers, on the other hand, deny all of the allegations made by Jill. A rep for the family told PEOPLE:  “This is ridiculous. Mario was not abusive.”

“He and Ramona have a great relationship right now. And Jill and Ramona are friends now,” the rep continues.  “Anything that happened was all in the past.”

The Real Housewives of New York will return to Bravo for season 12 in early 2020.
