The RHONY season finale was a bit anti-climatic, considering viewers had known for weeks about Aviva Drescher’s leg throwing incident. Still, Aviva shocked all the ladies during the episode by removing her her prosthetic leg and throwing it across a restaurant during the middle of an argument.
In her short and super sassy Bravo TV blog, Aviva dishes on the incident.
This is going to be the shortest blog entry ever. In fact, you can stop reading now and just look at the episode.
There’s a legal concept (when I’m not a crazy bitch, I’m a lawyer), res ipsa loquitur, which goes all the way back to the ancient Roman philosopher/lawyer Cicero (I’m not just crazy, I’m also snooty). It means “the thing speaks for itself.” This thing does. So don’t listen to me, watch the episode. See crazy/snooty/sarcastic Aviva react to being attacked by the mean girls by banging her fake leg on the table, and see the mean girls react in revulsion at the evidence of my missing limb — led by Kristen’s horrified “I’m going to vomit.”
It’s been a tough Season for me — I’ve taken a lot of sh– from the Housewives on the air, in social media, and in social situations. My character has been impugned. I’m not complaining. It seems to be part of the Real Housewives culture, and even when it’s been a headache, I’m still grateful to be a part of it. I’ve taken a lot of sh– from viewers, too. Again, that’s OK — it comes with the territory. I expect there will be a lot more after this episode. Carole calling me “weird,” or worse Heather calling me “crazy,” or worse Kristen doing that mock horror gaping mouth thing, and many of you supporting your favorites by damning me.
It’s the end of the Season — the gloves are off (legs too) and it’s all on the table (pun intended). So watch the episode. If you can stand it (pun not intended), watch it again. I’ve nothing more to say.
Res ipsa loquitur.
What did you think of the leg throwing scene? Do you think Aviva was justified in her actions or is she just crazy?
