All season long we have had to listen to the Real Housewives of New York City’sAviva Drescher talk nonsense about asthma, ghostwriters and her father’s sex life. Now, finally she is talking about something important — her work with other amputees.
We have all seen it coming, Bravo has been teasing it from the beginning of the season. In next week’s season finale, Aviva — for who knows what reason — removes her prosthetic leg and hurls it across a crowded restaurant. So what better way to work up to that pivotal seen, then by showing Aviva helping one of the survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing get fitted for a new prosthetic leg. Oh, Bravo, we love your editing!
Last night on Real Housewives of New York we celebrated the contrast between good and evil as if that isn’t the perpetual theme of these shows.
Carole Radziwill is turning 50 and wants to celebrate with an over-the-top party in the theme of Good vs. Evil, or basically Ramona and Aviva vs. Carole. Carole enlists her bestie Heather Thomson to plan it but her list of demands is staggering. Things Carole wants for her birthday party: butterflies, chandeliers from her house hung up at the restaurant, headless mannequins, a snake charmer, shiny red apples, a psychic (are we sure she doesn’t mean a psychiatrist?), fire breathing dragons with angels on their wings, 30 dozen white rose petals, the 12 horsemen of the apocalypse, three french hens, and a partridge in a pear tree. Oh and 6 well behaved Housewives, but we all know that ain’t gonna happen!
Heather decides to just be in charge of the booze and hires a party planner stat.
On Sunday, former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin hosted the Second Annual Luxury Ladies Luncheon at her home in Southampton. The event raised money for the Samual Waxman Cancer Research Foundation.
When asked why she organizes the event, Jill shared, “It’s a very complicated event in the sense that there’s no one reason that I do it. I do it because I want to give stuff to my friends, I do it because I want to raise awareness for charity, and I do it because I want to have a good time.” I will volunteer as tribute if Jill wants to give me free stuff. Check out more pictures below.
In the upcoming season finale, we’re shown footage of Heather Thomson yelling and Aviva’s leg laying on the carpet. “During a wild argument” between cast members, “Aviva yells, ‘What do you want from me? To crawl out of here?’ All the while, she’s shimmying out of her prosthetic leg under the table,” a source reveals. Then Aviva “throws it, in front of a crowd of shocked people.”
As LuAnn de Lesseps’ fate with Bravo remains unknown, she’s finding other television ventures to keep her busy!
LuAnn announced that she has been working on a new TV show, but she’s not giving away any details just yet. With Real Housewives of New York‘s ratings pretty much in the toilet, there are rumors of another complete recast and it’s unclear just who will survive this latest cut.
Jill Zarin is still dining out on her whole used to be on Real Housewives of New York thing by inviting a host of former and present Bravolebrities to participate in a charity luncheon at her Hamptons home which she has dubbed “Camp Zarin”.
Married to Medicine‘s season finale attracted 1.917 million fans, which is a whopping 1.1 million MORE viewers than last week. Leading into the reunion specials, the season two average is 1.76 million. While I think it’s obvious that Married to Medicine cannot stand on its own (the numbers plummeted both times RHOA didn’t air in front of it), I think Bravo will grant it a third season.

On Brandi Glanville’s podcast this week she spent time setting the record straight on a few rumors floating around, but she also devoted some time to helping Josh Taekman clear up some misconceptions about his marriage to Kristen.
Kristen Taekman, who is one of Brandi’s BFFs, is new this season on Real Housewives of New York. While we are loving Kristen, her husband Josh has been a little hard to take. Brandi wanted to help by explaining what a great guy Josh is and sharing that editing is making him look like an ass, but he really, really isn’t – he just has a dry sense of humor that’s not coming across well on TV!
Josh called in to Brandi’s podcast and shared that it’s been tough to watch to his scenes on the show each week. “It makes me cringe, it makes me sick to my stomach because Kristen and I have been together almost twelve years, we have a strong relationship. We’re far from perfect just like any relationship. I’m building a business which is incredibly stressful, but at the end of the day we are deeply in love and love our children and have a great working relationship. But we also have a lot of inside jokes and those do not translate at all.”
