'Real Housewives of New York' Recap: Aviva Drescher Uses a Very 'Aviva' Excuse to Get Out of Girls' Trip

aviva drescherOn Tuesday's episode of RHONY, the ladies headed to Montana for some fresh air, cowboy boots, and horsies. Well, all the ladies except Aviva Drescher, who came down with a last-minute case of asthma and "wasn't allowed" to travel to a place that's at such a high altitude. The trip started out like all other Real Housewives trips: A group of ladies convening in a gorgeous locale, doing nothing but drinking and complaining about where they are. And, like all other Real Housewives trips, the ladies started bickering in no time (which obviously turns into serious fighting next week).


While at a dinner, LuAnn De Lesseps asked Sonja Morgan why her facialist was gossiping about her and Carole Radziwill. (If you remember last week's ep, Sonja's facialist said that LuAnn likes to get it on with "short French guys" and that Sonja slept with Carole's ex-boyfriend, Russ.) Sonja didn't really have much to say about anything, though she did act like she never hooked up with Russ when Carole said that she called him to ask (which is so not how she was acting to said facialist the week prior).

Naturally, the "conversing" quickly dovetailed into arguing, LuAnn freaking out on Sonja for getting her pores extracted by such a gossipy woman. Sonja could have cared less, though, citing the fact that people who work in the beauty industry have been gossiping for years. LuAnn just needs to deal with it.

All in all, this episode registered pretty high on the boring scale, as, save for Sonja and LuAnn's bicker-fest at dinner, not a heck of a lot happened. But I've got pretty high hopes for next week's show when it appears that LuAnn still isn't over Sonja's facialist and takes her reprimanding up a few notches.

Oh, and did I mention everyone wore cowboy hats in the episode? Festive!

What did you think of tonight's episode? Pretty meh, huh?
