Hmmm…could it be an unexplored niche on the shelves of Barnes & Noble?
Real Housewives of New York's Aviva Drescher certainly hopes so, and she's penning a tell-all about her life in hopes of snagging herself a spot among the ghost writers who have made so many housewives into best selling authors.

Speaking to Bravo's Dish, Aviva reveals the tongue in cheek title of her memoir is Leggy Blonde. Aviva hasn't shied away from talking about the farm accident that caused her to tragically lose a leg when she was just six-years-old. While she went one to get her Masters and NYU and a Juris Doctorate, the accident left her with many phobias.
Of the book, Aviva shares, "I love to write and I wanted to get my story out there not only about my leg accident but a lot more: my wackadoo childhood, marriage and divorce, family addiction, lawsuits, and more. It's all out there! Lots of revelations that are unseen on RHONY. It was very cathartic to write my own story. A very spiritual experience which allowed me to go back into the past and surprise myself!"
The book isn't Aviva's first foray into writing. Her 1989 college application essay was included in a book of the best college essays (watch out, Carole Radziwill! I kid, I kid. We all know that essay writing is no easy feat), and in 2000, she penned a piece for Chicken Soup for the Soul.
Aviva's memoir will be available beginning February 25, 2014.
