You know, I am not sure I'll ever get a handle on Real Housewives of New York'sAviva Drescher. When she first joined the cast, I thought she was quiet and would likely stay in the background (a first for the Bravo franchise, I believed at the time). Then she became a ball full of phobias. Next, Aviva decided that she'd found her voice, and she promptly used it, fiercely, on anyone who would listen. And don't even get me started about her dad.
Now, Aviva is promoting her new book and the upcoming season of RHONY (I mean, is there really any point in them coming back at this point?). She's teasing that there will be craziness, and she even compares the franchise to that of Real Housewives of Atlanta and RHONJ. In the words of the great Cher Horowitz…As if!
Real Housewives of New York'sAviva Drescher certainly hopes so, and she's penning a tell-all about her life in hopes of snagging herself a spot among the ghost writers who have made so many housewives into best selling authors.
Aviva threw a birthday party, most likely for her son Harrison, judging by the photos that showed a lot of his friends hanging in the pool. The reality star rented a giant blowup water slide and the kids were photographed having a blast on it while Aviva strolled the yard in her bikini and heels. The pics are exclusive to Getty, so we're not sure if this will be part of the new season or not.
TELL US – AVIVA'S BIKINI – HOT OR NOT? ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THE RETURN OF RHONY?
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Above: Bethenny Frankel tweeted, "Tassels – because in the Twin Cities, you need twin titties."
When Sonja Morgan isn't performing impromptu burlesque shows and cooking eight-course meals in her handy toaster oven, she is quite the philanthropist. She has always been very involved with LGBT organizations and AIDS charities, and the Real Housewives of New York star was recently recognized by Inspired New York for her endeavors.
However, it wasn't all do-gooders and kind deeds…some attendees at the event wondered if there could be a romance blooming between Sonja and her co-star Aviva Drescher's ex-husband Harry Dubin. Of course, both Harry and Aviva (along with Bravo's camera crew) were on hand to support the flighty reality star as she accepted her award.
She must have taken her sane pills though because the former Real Housewives of New York star, who is definitely one can short of a six-pack of Diet Coke, is now claiming Bethenny's divorce will work out for the best!
"I don't know if it's really that nasty," Jillusional told E! News. "I don't always believe that kind of press."
And she's positive despite allll the reported acrimony and custody disputes everything will be fine in the end! "They'll work it out," Jill declares. "They'll find a way and they'll work it out because they both love their daughter."
Does Jill have her spies over at Bethenny's house again is that how she's got an inside scoop? Hopefully she's right though and the two can put differences aside for Bryn!
In other Jill news, she held a ladies lunch this weekend and invited all of her reality star friends – Kathy and Rich Wakile, Aviva Drescher, Luann de Lesseps and more – see the gallery below!
Tom dished, "Sonja gave an unprepared and somewhat rambling thank you speech (but she looked hot so who cares). It seems Aviva has made nicey-nice with her ex hubby Harry Dubin as he sat having friendly conversation with the ladies (Sonja, Aviva, Luann and the new girl) while they filmed for the show. I guess he's all caught up on his alleged past due child support?? Maybe he was dropping of a check? I didn't even know he existed."
According to Tom, the party was cramped and hot with a cash bar with, "some dude rationing out some drink tickets (2 to a person) to the VIPs. Near the end they ran out of tickets and I heard the waitress ask Luann for her credit card which she gave to pay for the last round and a bottle of Ruffino sparkling wine that I drank with some friends (Thanks Countess!)."
Tom shares that there was a lot of filming going on for the new season – and he even ruined Aviva's entrance footage. "While walking in I kissed Aviva hello as she was getting out of her towncar. She kiss me and said ''You messed up the shot''. So they did it over. Sorry Aviva!! So much for unscripted."
