Aviva Drescher and Ramona Singer had it out tonight on The Real Housewives of New York City, and, by George, it wasn't pretty. Aviva still wasn't over the way Ramona treated her when she arrived in St. Barts (there was no sign!), and she invited her to brunch to let her have it once again.
So in a restaurant that all the patrons must have signed waivers to pretend not to notice the major argument they were having (seriously, not one person near them even glanced their way, which was totally weird and distracting), they rehashed the same old argument. Aviva threw out "disgusting" about 1,000 more times to describe the way Ramona greeted her on the island, and then started in accusing Ramona of being an alcoholic, telling her she's driving Sonja to drink, and randomly that friends don't let friends drive drunk.
There was also some talk of metaphors (m-e-t-a-p-h-o-r), but she kind of lost me there. Oh, and she also accused Sonja and Ramona of spooning naked in the bed together in St. Barts. Ramona called her uptight and boring and said that she just makes things up.
Now whether Ramona drinks too much or not is debatable, and yes, it was bizarre she was wearing those sunglasses inside the restaurant, but Aviva has no business calling her out as an alcoholic based on one girls' weekend and a few random parties in the past couple of months since she's joined RHONY. Lots of people like to let loose, especially on girls' weekends, and just because Aviva is uber uptight doesn't mean Ramona is necessarily the one with the problem. I kept thinking that maybe if Aviva would drink something other than chamomile tea, maybe she'd loosen up a bit.
So Ramona left, telling Aviva she was happy with who she was, and that was supposed to be that. Only it wasn't, because the next thing you knew, there was Aviva's dad, George, at Ramona's charity event in her face demanding an apology for his daughter.
At a women's event designed to raise money for helping abused women, he was attacking Ramona and Sonja for something he really had no knowledge of beyond his daughter's account. And he wasn't subtle or diplomatic either. "You done wrong," he said as soon as he saw Sonja. Ramona told him she didn't want his money until Aviva apologized, and he just kept telling her she was wrong.
What was wrong was Aviva sending him there in the first place. If she wanted to make a donation, she could have easily sent a check in the mail. That, however, never dawned on her, she said. Yeah right.
Eventually Ramona had George escorted out after he grabbed her arm and wouldn't leave, and Carole Radziwill went with him. To her he called Ramona a "trailer turd," I believe. I guess that's where Aviva gets her name calling thing from as well as so much more. As Sonja said, "No wonder Aviva thinks the world revolves around her." Queen Aviva, indeed.
Do you think Aviva was wrong to send her father to Ramona's event?
