I finally figured what Sonja Morgan and Aviva Drescher like about each other – they’re both totally and utterly delusional! And they reinforce each other’s delusions. Seriously – was there a psychiatrist waiting in the wings of the Real Housewives of New York reunion?
Kristen Taekman got new boobs. As an anniversary present. Is this like a thing now – getting new boobs for the reunion? Ladies – the suddenly ballooning mummeries does not distract us from the drama.
Of course, almost immediately Kristen and Aviva are at each other’s throats over all of their arguments this season; specifically the time Aviva told Kristen to “Shut the f–k up” in front of their kids. Aviva does not apologize. At all. In fact she denounces Kristen as a “rookie” (I see someone has been rehearsing their insults in the mirror again!) and dismisses the whole things perfectly fine and normal. I mean kids hear the f-word. No biggie. I mean it’s just a word.
While Sonja Morgan thinks her “Caburlesque” is gonna become a thing (like “Fetch” is), LuAnn de Lesseps is actually working hard and earning money. Apparently being a former countess agrees with her!
At a housewarming shindig for her new house in Sag Harbor this weekend, LuAnn was all saucy jokes and quick wit – including revealing how she met her ex-husband and has quite the storied past! LuAnn apparently keeps a journal of all the good jokes she hears and “writes down” the punchlines so she can remember them.
As you know, several Bravo stars turned up in Las Vegas two weekends ago. Jill popped up, of course, though she did not appear to be directly involved with the events. Gotta love her! This past weekend, Jill, Ramona Singer, and Betsey Johnson posed for photos at the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation fundraiser A Hamptons Happening. Check out pictures from Vegas and A Hamptons Happening below. It’s like a fun game of Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego Jill Zarin?!
It is bad news for Real Housewives of New Jersey and Game of Crowns. Real Housewives of New Jersey lost over 500K viewers, with 1.642 million total viewers (but only 994,000 viewers in the key demo) watching the holiday episode. The premiere of Game of Crowns did not garner 1.2 million viewers as previously reported. Actually, 666,000 watched the premiere and 516,000 watched this week‘s episode, and now Bravo bumped it out of its time slot next week in favor of Don’t Be Tardy.

After having her career questioned along with her integrity – and having to put up with a season of Sonja Morgan‘s delusions, Carole has had enough and is calling BS on this season’s shenanigans!
First she outs Sonja as a liar who tried to make LuAnn de Lesseps look bad for her own benefit! Carole reveals that Sonja’s revisionist history about her sprained leg and chasing Harry down the street to claim her one true love! “Sonja may have run through the streets of New York chasing Harry (which, she didn’t) but then she fell and sprained her ankle, drunk in the same club with Harry and LuAnn and Heather [Thomson] and Jonathan,” Carole states.
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.
