It looks like there’s more “systemic bullying” in the “Real Housewives of NYC” scene—but this time, Kelly “Jelly Belly” Bensimon isn’t the victim!

At the red carpet premiere of “Bad Teacher” on Monday, Jill Zarin told People that Ramona Singer’s hubby, Mario Singer, violently laid hands on her at a party.

“Yeah, it’s ugly,” said the red-head about their newest feud. (Apparently, Jill and Ramona Coaster’s make-up moment in Morocco was just that—a moment.)

She added: “Last weekend, he shoved me. I was at a friends house for a dinner party. I was on line for the buffet … and Mario started screaming at me, uncontrollably. And then he pushed me – he shoved me with his hand. He was blaming me for his wife coming off badly on the show. He repeated things he thinks I said that he didn’t like.”

Not surprisingly, Ramona denied her frenemy’s version of the story. “She likes to exaggerate things,” she told In the Mixx. “And it seems like the only way she can get press is to say exaggerated things about me.”

Although the Pinot-loving blond admitted that Mario and Jill did exchange words, she said a physical brawl didn’t occur.

Whatever the case, Jill’s found a man to watch her back! And it ain’t her hubby, Bobby. “If [Mario] goes near me, I brought my own bodyguard, Wayne, [to the premiere],” she said. “I had heard [he] was going to be here. I wanted to make sure nobody touched me.”
