Zarin’s publicist, travelling in the same vehicle as her client, was also taken to hospital. They were due to appear at an event promoting Zarin’s new science fiction movie, Night of the Wild. The car crash, reportedly involving three vehicles, took place on Franklin D. Roosevelt Avenue.
The news was confirmed by Zarin’s representative, speaking to Us Weekly.

Zarin was one of the main cast on The Real Housewives of New York between 2008 and 2011. Zarin was fired from the show after her relationship with a number of the other housewives, including Bethenny Frankel, took an unpleasant turn and there was a particularly toxic reunion after the finale of the fourth season aired.
