They say not to judge a book by its cover, but it’s hard not to notice that something must be up with Aviva Drescher’s 76-year-old father, George Tiechner, and his 25-year-old fiancé, Dana Reeve Cody, on The Real Housewives of New York.
Cody is articulate, classy, and educated, so you can’t help but wonder ... what in the world is she doing with someone so vile and crude like Aviva’s father?
According to Cody herself, who is a successful Miami businesswoman, she says that there’s more than what meets the eye in their relationship, which is based on trust and “true love.” In a new interview, Cody insists that her love isn’t motivated by financial gain.
George and I love each other and it's quite rare that you find a cultural and age difference and people can find peace and happiness with themselves and each other. This is not a gold digger situation.
You almost want to believe Cody, right? But, for some reason, we just don't. With all the men out there, you’d think she’d find herself a more suitable partner. Let’s face it, she is the complete package with the right looks and the right brain, so I can’t help but wonder if she has everyone fooled here. We might just have Bravo’s next big reality star under our thumb and we don’t even know it yet.
She is either dating George to gain Real Housewives notoriety or is looking to climb up the New York socialite ladder. Whatever she's doing, she's definitely doing it to benefit herself more than George. While I believe her when she says she's not a gold digger, I don't quite believe it's true love either.
As far as George, we've only seen one side of him on screen, and it's been a rather misogynist, repulsive side, so it's difficult to say how he is in private. But it's hard to imagine he's that much different either -- at least not different enough to woo someone as amazing as Cody.
Tell us, what do you think of Cody’s relationship with Aviva Dresher’s father? Do you think the couple is sincerely in love or does Cody have something going on up her sleeve here?
