Jill Zarin had a dilemma on her hands, and it wasn’t just figuring out how to square Fashion’s Night Out with Rosh Hashanah. The Real Housewives of New York star arrived at the Barneys FNO Karoake, which was being judged by the Olsen twins, with husband Bobby, daughter Ally, and a swarm of cute little nieces. “We went to dinner, temple, and on the way home we’re stopping by because I got my nieces with me who wanted to go by and see the Olsen twins,” she told us. “I’m not happy Fashion’s Night Out is on Rosh Hashanah, I think they should change the night.”
After Zarin and family pushed through the overflowing crowd waiting for a peek of the Olsens (who arrived a full hour behind schedule), a staffer behind the velvet rope told Zarin she could only bring one other person backstage with her. Talk about Sophie’s Choice!
The family camped out in the dressing room and tried to decide who to bring backstage. There was a discussion of rotating children, but in the end, Zarin and family just left. When we asked about the abrupt departure, she said, “It’s just too hot.”
