Aviva Drescher Turns 'RHONY' Finale Into Cirque du Crazy (VIDEO)

Aviva DrescherCan you call someone an aerialist if they take off their leg and throw it? Well, I'm going to. Last night saw the season 6 finale of The Real Housewives of New York City, and there's lots to discuss. Though I must say, I feel like I should be doing it with a drink in my hand, because it's sort of like attending a wake. If TV shows had them.

In today's exclusive video, I break down which storylines worked, which ones seemed edited to death, and what was going on under that table? I also compare Aviva Drescher's leg toss to Kelly Bensimon on Scary Island and Teresa Giudice's table flip.

If I had to pick a favorite part of last night's finale, it would have to be Sonja Morgan's sit-down with Harry Dubin. I had LOTS of viewer questions about the relationship between Harry and Sonja, and in today's video, I tackle them for you. The questions, not Harry. Though that might be fun. We'll save that for another time.

Interspersed between the breakup of Sonja and Harry and the Cirque du Crazy, we have lots of tie-up footage bringing each cast member's season arc to a close. Kristen Taekman, Carole Radziwill, and Heather Thomson all get wrap-up scenes. Ramona Singer's will come at the reunion, since most of her current drama unfolded after filming finished.

But let's get to the meat of the finale. There's a party for Team Sonja, and Sonja shows up late. Well, Aviva shows up later, or does she? In today's video, I explain what's likely going on behind the scenes there, also pointing out some sharp-eyed Twitter viewer's conspiracy theories and whether or not they hold water.

Ultimately, although I loved her necklace, Aviva's leg toss doesn't hold a candle to the fabulous freak-outs of Kelly or Teresa, and there are very good reasons why. At least, I think they're good reasons, so watch and tell me whether you agree!

This season was just awful, I'm done with the show. Weeks alternated between lunatics fighting and incredibly boring story lines. Ramona got to me the most. I kept wondering if she would allow her daughter to act as self-centered, mean, and obnoxious as she was acting. What's the real story there - all for TV or truly a horrible person?

I wish you had mentioned Lou Ann's hysterical laughing...first at the unusual guests (lol) and then with tears rolling down her cheeks when Aviva faked her leg throw. Lou Ann made the show. It couldn't have been funnier. no drama there...just insanity....and Lou Ann was honesty enough to laugh about it.
