Threading through the mean streets of The Big Apple are apparently a whole different set of streets – tunnels perhaps that burrow under the Upper East Side spreading delusions. It's apparently whereAviva Drescher gets her information and her point of view.
We pick up where left off in another one of Aviva's garishly painted rooms where she and Carole are arguing over whether or not they are psycho or writing their own books. According to Aviva, henceforth known as "Avicious," the "word on the street" is that Carole didn't write hers. 'Word on the street,' like the machinations Aviva creates in her mind while walking down the street? Word on the street is also that Carole's fiction book was a flop in need of serious re-writes. Word on the street is also that it takes a village to write a book. Again, that's only the word on Avicious street.
Party in the clubhouse! Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer reunited on Watch What Happens Live tonight and they took a trip down Real Housewives of New Yorkmemory lane – and it was fun! The ladies dished on their seasons together, Bethenny talked about her canceled talk show, and both ladies talk divorce.
Things kick off with Andy referring to tonight's episode whereSonjaMorgan mentions it takes 35 people to run "team Sonja". Ramona says "Sonja doesn't always know what she's talking about. She just kind of rambles on about things that don't make sense sometimes. It means she probably has 35 interns in one year." Andy asks if the interns really crash at Sonja's house and Ramona says they do. Bethenny adds, "she likes to talk about the lavishness or the elaborateness of her life."
Despite starting #BookGateAviva Drescher is now going on record to declare it like the stupidest Real Housewives of New York fight ever. While I quite agree, it's all AVIVA's fault we're even talking about it at all!
In a desperate bid to drum up publicity for her own book, Leggy Blonde, Aviva accused Carole Radziwill of having her famed (and beautifully written) memoir, What Remains ghostwritten. Now she's accusing Carole of over-reacting. Meviva – go home, you're crazy.
"First of all, in the history of all the Real Housewives, everywhere, I officially declare this the STUPIDEST FIGHT EVER. Nothing will change what's on the show, but I'm not going to continue the fight on my blog, on Twitter, or in an MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) cage," Aviva begins in her Bravo blog.
Aviva invites Carole to lunch to discuss books, which really become a war of the words and over words and who wrote them. Aviva started out as a fangirl who took her obsession a little too far. She's currently boiling Carole's bunny slipper in a pot of water to make pasta. For some reason Aviva has an obsession with Carole eating pasta.
Aviva whips out a pair of glasses and says she SWF'd Carole's look. I think she was making a joke. Carole thinks she was making a threat – to both her sense of style and her livelihood. "Imitation is not the sincerest form of flattery. Flattery is the sincerest form of flattery," Carole corrects. Aviva did not get the memo. For a "writer" she has trouble reading between the lines. Maybe Carole should have used a ghostwriter?
