Former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin was hospitalized this afternoon after surviving a terrifying car crash on the FDR expressway.
Witnesses say Zarin was unconscious at the scene, having suffered what appeared to be a serious head injury.
Little is known about her condition, but insiders report that Zarin has regained consciousness and was released from the hospital moments ago after several hours of tests and observation.
“Jill was in the car with her publicist on her way to promote her film, Night of the Wild, when the driver slammed on the brakes and crashed into a three-car pile up," a source close to Zarin tells Radar Online.
“The car was going about 30 mph but Jill wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. The lesson from all of this is always wear your seatbelt."
Zarin was fired from the Bravo series that made her famous back in 2012.
There were rumors that she would be re-hired by RHONY producers last season, but the deal never materialized for an interesting reason.
Apparently, Zarin's feud with co-star Bethenny Frankel was so serious that Frankel refused to return the show if Zarin was offered a contract.
Several Bravo stars expressed their concern for Zarin via social media today. Not surprisingly, Frankel has yet to do so.
