'Real Housewives of New York' Reunion Recap: Aviva Really Thinks We're All Buying Her Act

aviva drescherOkay, anyone here want to weigh in on what the hell is wrong with Aviva Drescher? There's no two ways about it: The woman is legitimately insane! During the first two parts of the RHONY reunion, we didn't hear much from her, save for a few snarky comments lobbed Carole Radziwill's and Heather Thomson's way, but wow! She really brought the cray this episode. And although it was a little uncomfy to watch, it was kind of amazing.

I think my personal favorite Aviva moment of the evening was when she had the incredibly weird, not-making-any-sense comment about how she thought Carole was older than 50 ... but tried to pass it off as a compliment. What on Earth are you talking about, sister, and do you really expect anyone to buy what you're selling? I mean, who tells another woman that she was attempting to pay her a compliment, mid-fight, by saying, "At least I'm not 50," and then tries to justify it by saying it was a good thing, because, actually, she thought she was older than 50? Aviva, you're nuts, honey. Coconuts.

But then an interesting point was brought up, one I'd never thought of before: Was Aviva's leg-throwing incident premeditated? At the time, I just thought she was having a moment of (more than usual) insanity when she decided to chuck her prosthetic leg across Le Cirque, but the women all seem to think it was planned. And you know what? Now that they mention it, I do too. There's no way Aviva did that impulsively. She's the least impulsive person out there. And when you think about the fact that she brought X-rays and had the perfect line to go with said leg-throwing -- "the only thing fake about me is this leg" -- it all makes sense. Aviva totally planned to throw her leg before dinner. Think she discussed it with Reid first or kept it to herself?

At the end of the day, Aviva is great fun to watch, but the reason she isn't glue-you-to-your-TV riveting is because it's all an act. Aviva totally thinks she's pulling the wool over our eyes with the weird sh*t she pulls, whereas someone like, say, Kelly Bensimon or, more currently, Sonja Morgan truly believes her actions. It just isn't the same.

Overall, this season was entertaining but far from their best yet. Aviva added a little spice to the show (when she was on it), but I've gotta be honest: I wouldn't be mad if they recast next season.

What do you think of Aviva Drescher?

Hate her. She is a vile evil horrible woman. Hopefully she won't be back.

Aviva was horrible to watch. Ramona is lacking a lot of social graces but Aviva lacks a soul, as Carole said. Everything about Aviva is calculated. She was so un-authentic. Heather was correct. No one likes her. She is black hearted, mean, unstable, and makes excuses for her pervert father.

I am so glad I am not the only one who see's what a crazy person Aviva is. This woman has some serious mental problems and really needs to be checked in to a hospital. She is a hypochondriac who really believes she has health issues. She is unstable and i think she does have a black heart also. As for her father that man needs to be in prison !

I feel Aviva, Heather, Ramona, and Carol should be kicked off the show. Heather tried being street but when she used the "MF" word to Aviva that seemed planned just like they all believe Aviva leg was planned. Ramona shes just so old and played out with those bugged out eyes of hers. I really believe her husband has been cheating on her longer than everyone thinks. Ramona is 57 yrs old and dressing like she's 20 yrs old to hold on to Mario because that's what he likes younger women's. Sorry Ramona no matter how hard you try looking young its not working. Carol just so boring, she thinks she has a nice ass.....what ass???

Aviva has grown from a spoiled, coddled child into an entitled adult who can't play nice with others. Any perceived insult and she gets whipped into a nasty frenzy. God forbid you don't get out of the pool to greet her husband - she'll call you an alcoholic or slut-shame you on national TV (and don't forget that she called St. Bart's "the worst experience of my life" - oh. come on, Aviva). I think she's no fun to watch. She has some serious anger issues that I think go back a long way, and I hate that her disgusting father is part of her storyline. If she comes back to RHoNY, I'm done with the show.

i love aviva. she can take it and dish it. heather is a bully who needs attention and praise. it is sad. carol is unattractive and boring and lewd. crybaby is a baby and i am surprised her husband is still around. good thing she has look googly eyes is uncouth but entertaining and you just want to give sonja a hug. i could only be friends with sonja luann and aviva.

Umm I like Aviva soo back off bitches. Heather Carole and Heather r boring. Aviva should have wacked all three of them with her leg. Oh and Carole is a lame ass follower who somehow brainwashed everyone into hating Aviva. I guess I wasn't there for the brainwashing....

She is as nutty as a jar of peanut butter & her dad is a perv. I hope she won't be back !
