Aviva Drescher feels she has taken a beating this season and feels her character has been impugned. The Real Housewives of New York star takes a sarcastic tone in her new blog this week. Aviva snarks, calling herself a crazy bitch, snooty, and more, while also taking a “woe is Aviva” stance on the lashing she’s taken this season.
Aviva kept her blog entry short and sweet (and salty) this week. She starts off, “This is going to be the shortest blog entry ever. In fact, you can stop reading now and just look at the episode.”
She snipes, “There’s a legal concept (when I’m not a crazy bitch, I’m a lawyer), res ipsa loquitur, which goes all the way back to the ancient Roman philosopher/lawyer Cicero (I’m not just crazy, I’m also snooty). It means ‘the thing speaks for itself.’ This thing does. So don’t listen to me, watch the episode. See crazy/snooty/sarcastic Aviva react to being attacked by the mean girls by banging her fake leg on the table, and see the mean girls react in revulsion at the evidence of my missing limb — led by Kristen’s horrified ‘I’m going to vomit.'”
I’m sure Aviva Drescher is trying to take credit for it, but it was less about a leg being thrown across Le Cirque (seriously was this not the scene from a David Foster Wallace novel, or what?!) and more about the reactions of the other ladies – specifically LuAnn de Lesseps who literally burst into uncontrollable laughter and couldn’t stop.
Before all of that we have to dismantle the curious case of who got hairy with Harry. Sonja Morgan is reclining in bed, surrounded by interns of a frightened nature, one leg is propped on her pillow – tonight’s episode is clearly full of leg drama. Ramona Singer comes over to see her “Sonja-Bonja” which really is the most apt nickname ever. Sonja Bonja. Say ‘Bonja’ out loud and then laugh cause we all know Sonja likes to bone ya! I digress…
Ramona has Kristen Taekman with her because now that Aviva has outed herself as full-scale allergic to sanity, they need a tagalong to pour their wine. Pinot and Commando are adopting, y’all! Hide your impressionable youngish 30-something quarter-life crisis friends.
Aviva Drescher is behaving like a Housewife who already knows her days are numbered finitely and that she won’t be revived for another season. And by that, I mean, Aviva is sparing no details and going all in on the show to give away the secrets and dish the dirt!
Tonight is the season finale of Real Housewives of New York – a season that’s been plagued by lackluster story lines and discombobulated drama. In short – it lacked the magic that once made it such a dynamic show. Many people, myself included, place a lot of blame on Aviva’s disjointed appearances and vicious nature. Tonight, however, Aviva will fling her prosthetic leg across the floor during an argument and all hell breaks loose!
Aviva reveals she’s never thrown her leg to prove a point, but there’s a first time for everything! “Most people would take off their glasses and slam them on the table, but in this case I wasn’t wearing any glasses. All I could slam on the table and remove was my leg. I consider myself fortunate that I have that ability to do that,” Aviva justifies.
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!
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media 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 family photos from the past few weeks.
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.
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.”
Last night our ladies of the Empire State were finally back where they belonged – in Manhattan! Despite the calming days in Montana, a key Real Housewives of New York friendship is seeming to detonate!
Much like Survivor, these ladies are stranded on an island and forced into alliances. But Sonja Morgan is switching up the game. While interviewing a new intern in her backyard (which we so do not care about in the least), she’s wearing a fabulous military-inspired dress and preparing for friendship warfare. Into the garden wanders Aviva Drescher. Long time no see – and not missed!
Sonja immediately lobs a grenade – the entire trip all the girls were talking about Aviva (They were?) – but worst of all was Ramona Singer who accused Aviva of lying about asthma because she is afraid to travel without Reid.
