As the tail-end of the reunion, the drama was lackluster as all the mini-feuds were unscabbed and reargued part deux. At the center of most of the messes is Aviva Drescher. Among her many issues, she insists she was paying Carole Radziwill a compliment when she said, “At least I’m not 50 years old…” during their bookgate argument. Apparently in the convoluted twisted land of Avicious’ mind saying that someone is 50 and alone is a compliment, because she actually thought they were older. Ramona Singer, tact police, tut-tuts that even in a pinot-laced haze she knows that’s no compliment. That’s Aviva’s MO, to make a nasty comment and then claim the other person misconstrued it and she was actually trying to say xyz…
Avicious‘ other MO is to drop classicist epithets. Last night’s recipient was Heather Thomson. Aviva is appalled by Heather’s use of the phrase “mother f–ka” because Aviva says it sounds “gangster” and Heather did not grow up in the ghetto – nor has she been to prison. Apparently those are the only places people learn such language. Which confuses me because didn’t Aviva tell Kristen Taekman to “shut the F–k up“? Was Aviva in prison unbeknownst to us? She should be! Or perhaps Vassar was teaching a Ghetto Language Course? Needless to say Heather is offended by Aviva’s ignorance.
Perhaps it was a coincidence that the very same day a photo of Mario and mistress Kasey Dexter was released in the tabloids, or perhaps Ramona did not want to spill details at the reunion because she was hoping to sell her divorce story to a tabloid?
Sources assert that Ramona’s true reason for trying to shut down the conversation was she was shopping the story around to several major news organizations and did not want to give away the story for free at the reunion. At the time of taping the couple had been separated for weeks after a disastrous vacation to try and repair their marriage, as well as several arguments over Ramona’s drinking and behavior. However, after Ramona’s failed attempt to make money off her tragedy, she decided to just drop the bomb on twitter.
Avicious Drescher is like a dog with a bone – she simply cannot stop shooting herself in her last remaining foot. Pun intended! Nor can she stop sticking that last remaining foot in her mouth.
After throwing Carole Radziwill‘s career under the bus, and throwing her leg in after, Aviva still refuses to stop “giving her side of the story” about bookgate. Last week Carole gave an interview revealing some behind-the-scenes situations on Real Housewives of New York, including more of her debate with Aviva over who actually wrote What Remains. Well of course Aviva had to chime in, which sadly only served to make herself look even worse and more delusional in the process.
Aviva claims, “I used the term ‘word on the street’ was because I wanted to protect my sources. I didn’t want to name the sources. There was somebody at Simon & Schuster, who I did name and I did tell Carole the name of that person, and I’m happy to tell you: It’s Tricia Boczkowski. I named that on-air, and it just didn’t go in. She had told me. There was somebody very, very close to John F. Kennedy Jr. — very close — who told me.”*
Heather states that she hates to even defend her Berkshires home to Ramona, “who is acting like a pretentious brat and quite frankly, is being ridiculous. There is almost nothing worse to me than elitist behavior. That and foul ignorance.”
According to sources, Ramona and Mario quietly split again because he refuses to stop his affair! “She threw Mario out in late July because she discovered he was back with his mistress,” reveals a source. “Once again Mario made a fool out of Ramona.”
Clearly the powers that be at Andy Cohen Headquarters decided to put all the super crazies together to form some sort of cosmic force of intense delusion. The loose grasp of reality that was tenuously tying Ramona, Sonja, Aviva (Ramonjava?) to the world evaporated right there on stage. Of course “IT’S ALLEGATIONS!” that they’re insane. “ALLEGATIONS!”
We open with Sonja Morgan discussing why she needs 9,000 interns. I want to know how many have lodged complaints with OSHA but Andy never asks the hard questions. She claims colleges give credits to these kids spending a semester learning Mac Calendar – scheduling Mrs. Morgan’s busy life of partying on her yacht with P. Diddy is “the hardest thing.” It takes a lot of creativity to completely fabricate Mrs. Morgan’s importance!
Ramona Singer is never one to accept blame, but she is one to boast (erroneously) about her own so-called accomplishments.
It’s no secret that ratings for this season of Real Housewives of New York have been lower than anticipated despite some decent story lines and fresh faces. However, the show has failed to ever recapture it’s heyday from after the mass firing. Ramona, as one of the few remaining veterans of the show, certainly doesn’t fault herself for the ratings floundering.
She insists her co-stars are to blame. “It’s the chemistry of the people,” Ramona complained. “I believe the chemistry hasn’t been quite right. I believe Sonja [Morgan] and I were not afraid to step out and be ourselves. And some people (on the show) are just too cautious.”
