Ooooh goody – it seems slander works both ways on Real Housewives of New York. And if this accusation is true it seems we'll soon have another Housewife being investigated by the feds. Bravo sure leaves no stone unturned.
After Aviva Drescher has gone on national television to accuse Carole Radziwill of using a ghostwriter for her acclaimed and lyrical memoir What Remains, Carole is fighting back.
In her newest blog she reveals that Simon & Schuster, the publishing house that published Aviva's memoir, calls Aviva's allegations a "joke". But that's not all… Carole calls into question Reid Drescher's business practices.
This week some of our favorite Bravolebrities gathered for WNBC's private Christmas tree lighting party in NYC and it seems that maybe love was in the air during this magical holiday event!
Our man about town Tom Murro was in attendance at the soiree and shared some tidbits on the get-together. "What can I say? It's a magical event in the greatest city in the world. Caroline Manzo, who's been to the party a few times before, really enjoyed the tree this year – and Al's arms too."
Aside from Caroline and Al, other Housewives in attendance includedAviva Drescher and husband Reid, along with Kathy Wakile's sister Rosie Pierri. Rosie was in great spirits and Tom reveals that she had a possible date with her, Ellen. Tom says Rosie's plus one was "sweet as could be." Rosie has been spotted with Ellen at a few events since October, so it's possible these are two dating, but trying to keep things quiet.
Aviva threw a birthday party, most likely for her son Harrison, judging by the photos that showed a lot of his friends hanging in the pool. The reality star rented a giant blowup water slide and the kids were photographed having a blast on it while Aviva strolled the yard in her bikini and heels. The pics are exclusive to Getty, so we're not sure if this will be part of the new season or not.

Ramona and Mario Singer and Aviva and Reid Drescher were all attending, but not quite mingling, it seems.
According to Tom Murro, Ramona generously donated some of her Ramona Pinot Grigio for the event. "All the guests were commenting on how much they loved it, and of course Ramona was noticeably enjoying some herself." Of course.
When Tom caught up with Ramona, she gushed, "I loved the concert and such a great cause. It tremendous when celebrities use their fame for the good will of our planet ie rain forest etc. Sting and Trudie are an inspiration to us all, and it really shows how individuals can make a difference!"
LuAnn stepped out last night for The Broadway Dreams Foundation's "Champagne & Caroling" Gala. When the new Housewives' BFF Tom Murro bumped into her, he tried to get her to dish a little on her co-stars. But the divine Miss Lu wasn't having any of it. Ever the epitome of class and poise, she just shared a sly little comment that we're definitely reading into.
The convo went a little like this:
Tom: "Hey Luann – So tell me, be honest, who are you really friends with off camera?"
LuAnn: ''I have a working relationship with all of the ladies".
Tom: "So are you friends with Ramona, do you like her? "
LuAnn: "Like I said, 'I have a working relationship with all of the ladies''
Tom says that LuLu did admit to liking Aviva Drescher and her hubby Reid. You have to hand it to the Countess for not being as loose-lipped as SOME Housewives, right?
