Aviva may have the most connections with the ladies — her ex-husband hooked up with half the cast — but ‘The Nanny’s’ cousin seemed to be left friendless by the end of the first part of the reunion! Watch and tell us what YOU think.
On the Oct. 8 reunion special of The Real Housewives of New York City, the ladies appropriately meet up at The Museum of American Finance with none other than sexpot Andy Cohen. I hate to say it, but Andy was literally the most entertaining factor of the night.
Andy begins by digging into Carole Radziwill, questioning her ongoing frustrations with LuAnn de Lesseps — the “one upper.” After a package, showcasing prime examples, Carole and LuAnn spend 20 minutes — yes, 20 minutes — arguing over dresses and who borrows their clothes.
Here’s a lesson for Bravo. It may be a good idea not to pair RHONY with RHONJ next year. After last night’s explosive feud among Jersey’s finest, this was certainly a snoozefest.
Next, the topic changes to Aviva Drescher’s ex-husband, Harry Dubin, who also dated Sonja Morgan — and may or may not have slept with the Countess. Aviva admits that it hurts her to know that a number of the ladies have dated or slept with her ex. Sonja rips her a new one by accusing Aviva of talking poorly about Harry to the press, on her blog and via Twitter. In Sonja’s eyes, if Aviva is allowed to talk about him in that amount of excess, than the ladies should have free reign to speak about him as well. Aviva suggests they all keep talks of their ex-husbands and legal matters away from the cameras. (Isn’t that the point of this show? You signed up to reveal your lives to the world — not hide them. Duh!)
Andy, making sure not to remove the focus from Aviva, brings up her MANY phobias — with another snazzy little package! (That excitement was definitely sarcastic.) Of course, Aviva says that she’s perfectly normal for a 6-year-old who had their leg twisted around and around in a machine for three hours until it was completely gnawed off. As Aviva finishes her story, she’s brought to tears, but Ramona Singer couldn’t give a rats ass because she was busy rolling her eyes!
Ramona and Heather Thomson’s season-long squabble was brought to light towards the end of tonight’s reunion special. They both agreed that they didn’t like one another at the beginning of the season, but now have a good rapport with one another. Will they ever be best buddies? I doubt it.
Focus rounds back to Aviva and how she called Sonja and Ramona “white trash” in St. Barth’s. She attempts to, once again, apologize for her words, but at this point, no one’s buying it — not even the viewers. Surprisingly, Heather and Carole side with the other ladies and agree it was a very “dark” period for Aviva. Aviva’s apologies are always followed by more tongue lashing, so Sonja doesn’t trust a word that comes out of her mouth. Even her apologies were followed by sly smiles during her confessionals. This disagreement leads to an escalation of emotions and a perfect segway into next week!
