“I won best female golfer,” says Jill Zarin (seen here with Kyle MacLachlan), star of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of New York City." “Why? Because I was the only female golfer!”
Zarin was at Monday’s 6th Annual Hamptons Golf Classic, at the Hampton Hills Golf & Country Club in Westhampton Beach. Giants Defensive End Justin Tuck hosted to raise funds for his R.U.S.H. for Literacy foundation.
Also at the event: MacLachlan, Knicks legend John Starks, new "Real Housewives" stars Sonja Morgan and Jennifer Gilbert, ESPN’s Jay Williams, Giants linebacker Gerris Wilkinson and Michael Lohan, father of Lindsay.
“I support Justin’s charity in the city as well,” says Zarin. “It’s so important to get kids to read.” She says she also likes standing next to him. “I never looked so thin in my life." Maybe it was her “lucky Theory shorts.”
An added bonus: “Justin invited me to any Giants game I want. I’m a born and bred New Yorker and a fan of all our teams. But the worst is when the Giants play the Jets.”
Even without the lucky shorts, Zarin says she’s an “OK golfer. I played with my stepson Jonathan, who’s great. We were playing ‘best balls,’ and they played some of mine.”
Fellow housewife Jennifer Gilbert, on the other hand, doesn’t golf at all. “But my 2-year-old twins are running around the yard swinging the little plastic mini golf clubs I bought them,” she says. “I believe in starting them young. My 5-year-old daughter is already skiing and taking tennis lessons. And I’m a skier, runner, boater type of person.”
Zarin says you didn’t have to be on a team to enjoy the day. “The food was delicious,” she tells us. “And I’m all about the food.”
