Now, Aviva has been accused of being fake by her castmates — and most viewers – last season, but her marriage seemed pretty strong and healthy. So what reasons would she have to appear on a show where couples go through exercises and drills to help improve marriages?
The exact problem of the ratings decline has yet to be identified, but my guess is it has something to do with unrealistic storylines — bookgate — and planned confrontations — leg throwing. Huh, I just realized that both of those have to do with Aviva. Hmmmmmmm….more on that in a bit.
So after a dramatic season with the ladies, where does Carole stand about coming back for another round? Does she really want to deal with Aviva and Sonja again? In a new must read interview, Carole is an open book, talking about the other ladies and some surprising behind the scenes production scoop.
They finally struck a custody agreement recently, but have yet to settle in matters of money. So after all this, would Bethenny really turn right around and get married again when a settlement is finally reached?
Kristen Taekman was the new girl on the block this season on the Real Housewives of New York and boy did she make her presence known! You do not often see the new girl stand up to the vets and call them out on their BS, but Kristen did. She was not afraid of Ramona Singer– although she probably should have been if Ramona had a glass of wine — and she stood of to crazy train Aviva Drescher as well.
But probably the most buzz-worthy moments with Kristen — minus the aforementioned Ramona wine glass toss — happened between Kristen and her husband, Josh Taekman. These two were not afraid to fight and show their true colors in front of the camera. I for one loved it — that is what a marriage sounds like a lot of the time. But viewers grew concerned. Well in the wake of the reunions beginning to air, Kristen is opening up about what the viewers do not get to see about her marriage.
Not so fast! Just when we thought things we getting down right amicable between Bethenny Frankel and her soon-to-be ex-husband Jason Hoppy, the feuding twosome come to blows once again.
This time it is not over custody of their daughter Bryn, but instead it is over Bethenny’s millions. The former Real Housewives of New York star was spotted leaving a Manhattan Supreme Court, where she is apparently still fighting with Hoppy because she does not want to split her reported $55 million fortune.
The original New York Housewife is full of opinions about what went down when the ladies visited Montana. And based on the readability and the amount misspelled words, I can only assume this was after a bottle of Ramona Pinot Grigio. (Editor's note: I cleaned up Ramona's blog a bit, just an fyi so you don't think Suzy's wrong about there being errors.)
