If this week's Real Housewives of New York numbers are any indication, no one is very interested in the dealings of Aviva Drescher's father George. Which is good because we'll likely be spared footage of his wedding to Cody next season!
Speaking of Cody, is she, as Ramona Singer claimed. a wayward girl being preyed upon by an aging perv or, as Sonja Morgan believes, a nice girl with a good head on her shoulders who is in love? There's also been some confusion about Cody's name (is she really called Cody?) and her profession (does she really have more money than George?). Cody's brother spoke to Radar Online about his sister's history and established that she is certainly not after George's money. I think that's even worse – I mean that implies she enjoys George's personality. <shudder>

First of all, as many eagle-eyed viewers have pointed out Cody (real name Dana Lavette Cody), is no reality TV novice! She appeared on Oxygen's Find Me My Man in 2013. On the show the high-maintenance "Cody" reveled in her "bitchiness" and wasn't anything like the demure, composed lady we saw on RHONY. Furthermore, it seems Cody isn't 25, but actually 29! Well – she's still decades too young for George!
In order to defend his sister from viewers claiming she is everything from a gold-digger, to a lesbian, to an insane person, Cody's brother Derrick clears up some misconceptions. First he reveals that his sister does in fact own a chain of nail salons called Tippie Toes with locations in both Miami and LA and is financially stable on her own. Why wasn't the salon heavily touted on RHONY? Weird…
“Her being a gold digger is not true…She’s never really had to work hard in her life. But she does,” Derrick insists. “Our parents passed away and they left us taken care of. It’s not like she’s not used to having money.”
Aviva also defended her future step-mother. And in fact, Aviva likes Cody so much she sees her as Housewife potential! “You know, I would love to see my father’s fiancée join the cast. I think she would be really interesting,” Aviva said. Um… like I said, judging by the ratings for the last two episodes of RHONY, I doubt that's going to happen. As they say, the people have spoken!
