We pick up where left off in another one of Aviva's garishly painted rooms where she and Carole are arguing over whether or not they are psycho or writing their own books. According to Aviva, henceforth known as "Avicious," the "word on the street" is that Carole didn't write hers. 'Word on the street,' like the machinations Aviva creates in her mind while walking down the street? Word on the street is also that Carole's fiction book was a flop in need of serious re-writes. Word on the street is also that it takes a village to write a book. Again, that's only the word on Avicious street.
Party in the clubhouse! Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer reunited on Watch What Happens Live tonight and they took a trip down Real Housewives of New Yorkmemory lane – and it was fun! The ladies dished on their seasons together, Bethenny talked about her canceled talk show, and both ladies talk divorce.
Things kick off with Andy referring to tonight's episode whereSonjaMorgan mentions it takes 35 people to run "team Sonja". Ramona says "Sonja doesn't always know what she's talking about. She just kind of rambles on about things that don't make sense sometimes. It means she probably has 35 interns in one year." Andy asks if the interns really crash at Sonja's house and Ramona says they do. Bethenny adds, "she likes to talk about the lavishness or the elaborateness of her life."
Despite starting #BookGateAviva Drescher is now going on record to declare it like the stupidest Real Housewives of New York fight ever. While I quite agree, it's all AVIVA's fault we're even talking about it at all!
In a desperate bid to drum up publicity for her own book, Leggy Blonde, Aviva accused Carole Radziwill of having her famed (and beautifully written) memoir, What Remains ghostwritten. Now she's accusing Carole of over-reacting. Meviva – go home, you're crazy.
"First of all, in the history of all the Real Housewives, everywhere, I officially declare this the STUPIDEST FIGHT EVER. Nothing will change what's on the show, but I'm not going to continue the fight on my blog, on Twitter, or in an MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) cage," Aviva begins in her Bravo blog.
Bethenny Frankel is moving on up….or at least — according to In Touch Weekly – out of her dream home, the apartment that she bought with her soon-to-be ex-husband, Jason Hoppy. The former Real Housewives of New York star filed for divorce in in December 2012 just shy of the couple's three year wedding anniversary, but continued to live with Jason in order to share parenting duties of their daughter, Bryn. Can you say awkward?!?!? Especially since she is in a new relationship with financier Michael “Mac” Cerussi III. Probably time to pack up and leave.
Both Bethenny and Jason came out swinging filing for sole custody and refusing to leave their luxury loft that they bought together. Now, I am not choosing sides, but the $5 million, 3,400 square foot loft was bought after she sold her Skinnygirl cocktail company for a reported $120 million. Just sayin.
The Real Housewives of New York City's resident "normal" person, Carole Radizwill, was pushed to her limit recently by slanderous claims made by her costar,Aviva Drescher. I truly think that Aviva needs to lay off the cuckoo juice that she has recently been drinking. Or does she just live in a world where she believes if she says it, then it must be true. I was truly confused by her claims of Carole using a ghostwriter and how she wrote her own book and that it was easy, "like a long email'.
If you missed it, in last night's episode of the Real Housewives of New York City, Bookgate got into full swing when Aviva told every other cast member that she was told be her publishing house — which I am sure they are thrilled about — that New York Times Bestselling author Carole used a ghostwriter when she wrote her first novel, The Widows Guide to Sex & Dating. We were cutoff in the middle of Carole confronting Aviva — best line,"I was really happy for you when you got a book deal, but [comparing your writing to mine is] like apples and spaceships." — but thank goodness for Bravo blogs!
Aviva invites Carole to lunch to discuss books, which really become a war of the words and over words and who wrote them. Aviva started out as a fangirl who took her obsession a little too far. She's currently boiling Carole's bunny slipper in a pot of water to make pasta. For some reason Aviva has an obsession with Carole eating pasta.
Aviva whips out a pair of glasses and says she SWF'd Carole's look. I think she was making a joke. Carole thinks she was making a threat – to both her sense of style and her livelihood. "Imitation is not the sincerest form of flattery. Flattery is the sincerest form of flattery," Carole corrects. Aviva did not get the memo. For a "writer" she has trouble reading between the lines. Maybe Carole should have used a ghostwriter?
Rumor-mill alert! Rumor that I don't believe for a minute, mind you, but it's still amusing as hell!
Aviva Drescher is clearly this season's pariah. Add that to her totally cuckoo bird personality and you've got a match made for the loony bin. Which is exactly how crazy she seems to be driving her Real Housewives of New York co-stars!
Aviva called in to The Gossip Table where she dished on tonight's drama between herself and Carole Radziwill, both of whom have competing books hitting the market at the same time. She also issued her predictions for how this season is gonna end – and just how exactly her leg flies off in the finale. Apparently Aviva took the leg off herself. Or maybe it just could no longer stand her and made a run for it!
