I just want to get out of the way that Aviva Drescher's father George is disgusting. Now Ramona Singer is no slouch when it comes to inappropriate comments and unfathomable rudeness, but at least Pinot mostly restricts her mouth to inserting her pinot-soaked foot in it and spilling out gaffes of astonishing social ineptitude. George, on the other hand, takes it to the level of grotesque and I am frankly insulted that Bravo expected viewers to enjoy that.
In the midst of George and Ramona's argument last night on Real Housewives of New York, she was matched level-for-level with him in trashy, inappropriate comments, although Ramona's comments are as inappropriately lewd in terms of insulting rudeness as George's are in insulting sexual harassment. I'm not going to really repeat what was said save for the fact that if I were Ramona I'd be contacting the EEOC about harassment in the workplace! Yuck and yuck and more yuck!
It would have been nice if one of these two self-righteous hubris-obsessed blowhards could have taken the highroad instead of mutually sinking to an abhorrent level, but alas… not gonna happen right? In other news Sonja Morgangot drunk – send a press release!
"Yuck" is the word that comes to mind when I think of Aviva Drescher's octogenarian perverted father George. I'm sure I am not alone in this feeling. Which is why I'm also sure that I was also not alone in my shock upon discovering George's much-younger girlfriend Cody, who also accepted his proposal last week on Real Housewives of New York.
I could only assume this was a storyline, but in a new blogAviva insists that her father's relationship with Cody is absolutely real and they are in fact planning a wedding. Does Cody perhaps need a lobotomy?
"I am so thrilled for my father and Cody because they are happy. Cody is lovely, smart, and mature. My kids love her and as I write this, my father and Cody are returning from Europe. They are both consenting adults and love is love," Aviva writes in defense of George's choices.
If you didn't catch last week's Real Housewives of New York City, Carole Radziwill breaks it down for you in her latest Bravo blog. She touches on the amazing array of nicknames the girls have for Ramona Singer, the hilarious — and ridiculous — questions that Ramona thought were appropriate for Carole to ask prospective interns and the funeral that was held for Sonja's dog, Millou.
Heather Thomson and LuAnn DeLesseps met up with Kristen Taekman following her sit-down with Ramona over her tendency to throw wine and wine glasses at her. What better way to get the goods than straight from Kristen. Although Carole wasn't there, she was more than happy to share her opinions on having a sit-down with Ramona.
Ramona begins, "It seemed childish when Kristen was speaking to Heather and LuAnnabout me that Heather threw out all these negative nicknames for me. I would think they could discuss me without name calling…I really expected more from Heather, but perhaps she expected more from me in the Berkshires and felt justified."
This week's reality TV viewer numbers report is nothing but bad news. As I predicted, Married to Medicine lost a ton of viewers without Real Housewives of Atlanta's lead-in. Only 921,000 watched Dr. Heavenly's shady dinner party this week. That's down 642,000 since last week and almost 1.5 million since the season two premiere.
Last night on Real Housewives of New York we bid adieu to Milou. But it was more than saying goodbye to Sonja Morgan's dog, it was about saying goodbye to toxic relationships and living in the past. In short, Sonja made the decision that she was not going to end up a modern-day Miss Havisham and was instead going to l-i-v-e as a modern-day Auntie Mame!
Kristen Taekman is in the throes of many struggles – I mean Ramona Singer maimed her and her husband is the very definition of douchelord in the dictionary – I promise! Look it up – his photo is in there.
She meets LuAnn de Lesseps and Heather Thomson for some shopping where she recaps her Ramonapology, you know here's some flowers, gotta whiz! Hamptons! Celebrities! And there was poor Kristen sitting at the table like, "but… I put on this dress. And you – you have anger management issues!" It was too late, Ramona had already downed her glass of wine? water? Water which she turned into wine? Does she have that power based on the sheer will of her fortitude? I mean how does Ramona even get a wine glass in a tea shop? Does she carry her own, in her purse, for emergency purposes? So many questions…
Aviva Drescher was reportedly given the mid-season axe by Bravo producers for failing to meet filming obligations, but then they recanted and allowed her to return.
Aviva heartily denies she was put on probation and continues to insist that her position on Real Housewives of New Yorkwas never in jeopardy. "I didn't go to the Berkshires because I had to go visit my kids at sleepaway camp so I didn't film that weekend," Aviva told Elisa DiStefano at the Southampton Animal Shelter's Wine Tasting Benefit.
It's interesting that Aviva continues to deny the probation considering her intro was removed from the show's opening credits! "I'm going to be on the rest of the season," Aviva continues. "But if they do ever fire me, it's not something I would get depressed about. I could live with that."
Could this finally be the end for Bethenny Frankel's on-going divorce and custody battle? It seems like Bethenny and her estranged husband, Jason Hoppy have been going at each other for years….Oh, wait. They have!
Bethenny and Jason separated way back in December 2012. Since then, they have been fighting over everything from their dream home to custody of their 4-year-old daughter Bryn. After months upon months of fighting back and forth, a judge finally ruled this week that a trial is set for next Wednesday. Everybody get ready, cause this could be nasty!
