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."

Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled TV time slots, so they take to social media to share (and overshare) even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite family photos from the past few weeks.
Below you'll find pictures of the Kardashian sisters arriving at the upfront presentations in NYC (more of those pics featuring the Bravolebrities coming later), Kelly Bensimon on the streets of NYC, and Lisa Vanderpump attending an event with Ken Todd. You'll also find LuAnn de Lesseps, Lilly Ghalichi and others.
Aviva was missing from last week's Real Housewives of New York credits and will be for the next few weeks. Aviva was reportedly given a warning by producers and the network for refusing to attend cast trips and honor her contract. Aviva was "disciplined by producers" with a forced three-episode hiatus," a source tells Radar Online – basically they told her get in line or get out! I mean, "image consultant" Amanda Sanders was waiting in the wings, right?!
We noticed that last night Aviva's intro was cut from the beginning of Real Housewives of New York. Of course that got our minds whirling – does that mean we'll never get to know how her leg gets thrown? Did she quit the show mid-season? What happened?
Reportedly it's all a ratings ploy by Bravo! Aviva will be absent from a couple episodes. She wasn't able to attend Heather Thomson's trip to The Berkshires because of a family commitment and according to NaughtyButNiceRob she refused to attend a subsequent cast trip to Montana.
