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 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 photos from this week! Enjoy!
Above:Gretchen Rossi tweeted, "All I wanted after this weekend's fashion show (wearing a bikini in front of 3,000 people) was ice cream! So Slade Smiley found me an ice cream store and I had my favorite mint chocolate chip!"
Last night on Real Housewives of New York the ladies confronted Ramona P. Singer (the P stands for Pinot) about her behavior in the Berkshires. Most specifically a pseudo meltdown that was the perfect segue for her to ditch them and hit up a Molly Simms party in the Hamptons. Oh that Ramona – she's so devious! However, by the sheer power of their conviction and the fortitude of LuAnn de Lesseps' self-described "linebacker shoulders," the ladies were able to make a slight dent in Ramona's AquaNet facade and she actually apologized to Kristen Taekman. How that went is another story, but let's start back in the Berks (can I tell you how tired I am of typing that word… ).
Back in the Berkshires the ladies are are seriously hungover after a night of binge drinking and pinot-trashing. I can assume many a bottle of Ramona Pinot was smashed as well. Heather Thomson wakes everyone up because soon they'll be forced into an AM yoga class. Sonja Morgan awakes in a negligee with the remains of her bumpit! trembling on one side of her head – she's also missing a cubic zirconium diamond earring. Sonja is super sad that Ramona manipulated her and wonders how much of their friendship has been a farce. The other ladies look just as worse for the wear.
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.
Just a little background if you have been living under a rock. The Real Housewives of New York City made the trek to Heather Thomson's retreat in the Berkshire. Drama started early when Kristen Taekman splashed Ramona Singer with a little water, in turn Ramona threw wine on her — for the second time in two episodes — followed by chucking the glass at her face. Then after a sort-of apology, Ramona used her childhood trauma to flee the vacation. Even though she had already been filmed packing and calling a friend for a ride to the Hamptons before her 'breakdown' that made her want to leave. Classy!
Last night on theReal Housewives of New York things got rowdy in The Berkshires. Or should I say Ramona Singer went bonkers in The Berkshires. Oh, The Berkshires – who goes there? They're just so gauche! They're so ugh – has anyone even heard of them? What are they, like a truck stop? Do they even have pinot? I mean, we know they don't have air conditioner! Who vacations without a beach? The good people all go to The Hamptons. Just ask Ramona – she's the expert on all things classy and high society. All the best society girls appear on trashy reality shows and behave like, well, trash!
Really, if LuAnn de Lesseps is any kinda friend, she'll stop taking Ramona to aerial yoga and start making her endure regular reading lessons from Class With The Countess! So Ramona happened, in The Berkshires, with the wine glass.
Before all that Sonja Morgan, takes her sexy j downtown for some business lessons from Kristen Taekman's husband Josh. Right off the bat we know this isn't going to go well because Kristen lives in a rental. A rental she can afford, but a rental nonetheless, which makes her a peasant in the eyes of Miss The Toaster Oven That Never Could!
