'Real Housewives' Amazon-gate: Jill Zarin's take on reviewing under a fake name
Members had launched a grassroots investigation after one "Susan Saunders" replied angrily to a negative review of Zarin's book, "Secrets of a Jewish Mother."
Written to Alana Chandler, the No. 1 ranked reviewer on Amazon, the comment called the reviewer anti-Semitic and "jealous of Jill." "Saunders" even suggested that Chandler's pet should be taken from her. Chandler has since claimed that "Saunders" also followed up the comment with a "threatening email."
Amazon members then discovered that "Susan Saunders'" account was registered to Jill Shapiro, which is Zarin's name before marrying Bobby, from New York City. Her daughter's name is Allyson and her birthday is November 30. All of these details correspond with public information on Zarin. Also, Bobby's brother, David Zarin, is listed under "Saunders'" "Interesting People & Friends" list.
