When you’re on a successful reality show and the location of your home is public, you’re bound to get rolled up on just like Leo and Drew do by those Star Map mother fuckers. Jaqueline Laurita from the New Jersey cast posted to her Twitter about fans coming to her house uninvited, and while she seemed to handle it graciously, I don’t know how safe it is for their family to continue to be so accessible.
Meanwhile, Jill Zarin fron New York City is dealing with something similar, except she’s taking it much more seriously. Jill posted to her Facebook page over the weekend about two families that are stalking her and says that she sought the advice of another Jersey cast member, Dina Manzo:
“We are being harassed and threatened by a family from Chicago and Alabama. We have contacted authorities. I will block anyone who is linked to them per postal service law enforcement until they finish investigation. This is a serious crime and all evidence has been handed over. If you are involved in anyway. I suggest you stop. Enough is enough. It is NOT funny or a joke…I will not tolerate haters on my Facebook and Twitter accounts anymore. The show is now OVER. I will be blocking anyone following the serious haters as well. Dina gave me good advice. You know who I mean. Haters come with being a celebrity. We all have them, but I will do my best to block them and their followers. Peace and Love. Not hate.”
It sounds like Jill is being overly dramatic (it’s not like it’s out of character for her to freak out over nothing), but when it comes down to the safety of you and family, you can’t mess around. I hope that Bravo is taking measures to help their stars.
