HollywoodLife.com spoke to the reality star about the huge fight she had with Ramona on the Sept. 24 episode of ‘RHONY,’ and she told us why she feels bad about slamming Ramona for her drinking! Read on for her side of the story!
Aviva Drescher wants to extend an olive branch to Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer. HollywoodLife.com spoke to Aviva right after the explosive episode in which she told Ramona that she couldn’t live without alcohol.
“I said that in a moment of anger because Ramona had called my ex-husband fishing for info about my relationship with Reid and she was trying to call me a liar,” she told HollywoodLife.com. “I’m not one who should be determining if anyone is an alcoholic. My mom died of alcoholism and I’m very sensitive to heavy drinking. I’m the last person who should be labeling anybody. I said that in response to her saying I’m not afraid of airplanes and I shot back and I’m sorry that I said that.”
But Aviva does say that Ramona is incredibly rude to tell her that she makes her want to have diarrhea.
“Maybe she has a stomach problem,” Aviva jokes. “She brings it up all the time. She may have a stomach problem that needs to get investigated.”
In the episode, Aviva sends her father to Ramona’s charity event to drop off a check and then Ramona kicks him out and has him escorted off the premises.
“It was really wrong of her to throw my father, my relative, my 80-year-old dad out of the party,” she tells us. “There are many other ways she could have handled it. I think it was wrong he went, had I known it was all women, I would have given the checks to Heather or Carole. But no, I don’t think he should have gone.”
Don’t forget to tune into the season finale on Oct. 1 on Bravo: “There’s lots of drama,” Aviva says. “You’ll see us arguing about Ramona throwing my father out of the party.”
