Tonight the ladies of Real Housewives of New York continue their mission to behave incredibly badly in St. Barths. Last week viewers got a glimpse of LuAnn de Lesspes and her pirate affairs. Well tonight the drama continues when Aviva Drescher arrives on the island and goes head to head to with Pinot Singer and Sonja Morgan.
What is it about RHONY and islands?
Aviva discussed the events with Celebuzz and admits it gets pretty crazy – like Scary Island crazy, perhaps? "Monday is, I think, sort of the crescendo of my storyline,” Aviva shares. “I really become unhinged. All that biting of my tongue when I was in the pool, or when I was going in the Jacuzzi, or when Ramona was in my kitchen, sort of comes out.”

As for what pushed Aviva over the edge, well it was the high school antics of her menopausal co-stars. "It felt a lot like Mean Girls to me,” she admits. “I got sucked in by the mean girls, and then I discover that they’re not such nice people.” Hey – I believe Ramona can drive anyone into the nut house!
"I was very hurt, and very angry with Ramona and Sonja and, unfortunately I called them a name in the heat of the moment that I regret," Aviva confesses, of the infamous "white trash" comment.
And Aviva realizes it kind of makes her a hypocrite. "Here I am teaching my children every day not to name call and then there it goes, it slips out. And I feel really badly about that."
“With that said,” Aviva continues, “these women didn’t behave like friends or even acquaintances as far as I was concerned. I think that they were very, very mean and selfish and it was very disappointing to me. I pick and choose my battles and this was not a battle that was going to go and be stuffed under the carpet.”
Apparently all the drama started over Aviva's husband Reid coming on the trip. Carole Radziwill planned the so-called girls trip and had no problem with husbands or boyfriends attending, but HBIC Ramona is singing a different tune. And as we all know, everything, everyone, is always, all the time, about Ramona!
Well, except her husband it seems.
Aviva dishes that she would have gladly stayed home knowing the lion's den she was walking into. “I would not have gone if I had known that the ladies felt even a little bit uncomfortable about having Reid in the background,” she maintains. “Never in a million years would I ever want to make anyone feel uncomfortable.”
Aviva says she “went on this trip because the ladies had been pushing me and pushing me and pushing me for weeks.” And it was definitely not money or time well-spent! Adding that she definitely regrets “taking the time to go away with them…. Only to get there and be abused.”
Well, tonight we'll get an earful of Aviva vs. Ramonja. And I have to admit – I'm sort of excited. I've got my boxed pinot chilled and I'm ready to rumble. Monday Night Housewives – here we come! Can I get one of those giant fan fingers made with the names of the cast so I can wave them at the TV and cheer? Too much?
Anyway, since I don't have jerseys or body paint, we'll be live-tweeting instead. Don't forget to join us on twitter for the play-by-play.
Real Housewives of New York airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c.
