Carole Radziwill Dishes On Her Thoughts on Aviva Drescher
After the explosive Real Housewives of New York City finale this past Tuesday, Carole Radziwill has taken to her blog to dish on Aviva Drescher- and she is not trying to mince words.
Carole writes, “Yes, it was hard to take Aviva’s 50 percent lung capacity asthma with any seriousness. It’s not because we’re a bunch of insensitive cows, it’s quite the opposite. We spent two months listening to her talk about all her ailments. She probably is sick. But it doesn’t keep her from traveling. I would tell you how I know this (other than common sense) some other time because apparently there’s a gag order.”
She continued, “I did have to laugh when Sonja outed Aviva’s boob job. So her leg actually isn’t the only fake thing about her, but luckily it was the only fake thing she threw on the floor. I took her doctor’s business card. Hey, why not? You never know when you’ll need a note to get out of gym class. Apparently he’s a “doctor to the stars,” and we all know what that means. That’s the doc who will write letters for celebrities saying they suffer from dehydration and exhaustion or mercury poison to get them out of a movie deal or going to rehab.”
Carole didn’t stop there, writing, “Aviva said I protested too much about her accusations of ghostwriting? She asked me at lunch and I said, “No.” And that was it. Remember, this was taped. Then, yes, I got spit angry at her and defended myself when she belittled my accomplishments, trashed my novel, impugned my relationship with my late husband’s family and ridiculed my age (Hello??? I’m not much older than her and look 10 years younger. Snap.). I called her some names. It wasn’t my finest moment. But sh– happens. If she thinks I protested too much, let’s look at what she does to convince us she has acid reflux asthma. She starts to use an inhaler at every moment. She carries around a weekend bag full of her medicine ready to throw at anyone who dares to question her. She hauls around medical reports, business cards, and chest X-rays (to diagnose asthma, seriously?). She brings a doctor’s note with her wherever she goes and she regales us with all her other medical illnesses including a bout of Legionaire’s disease that she mistook for a summer cold. Instead of saying, “You don’t believe me? Too bad.””
She continued still, writing, “
As you could see, she was very excited to throw her leg down. After all, she’d been planning it. She even asked Harry earlier if he would carry her out of Le Cirque. How amazing would that have been? Just like in An Officer and a Gentleman. Harry’s Richard Gere to Aviva’s Debra Winger. Sadly, he said, “Absolutely not.”
We were all corralled over to that table several times. I got up to leave and had to sit back down. Heather was right. Let’s get this thing over with and go home. She was waiting for one of us to call her fake and when we didn’t she threw her leg down anyway. I’m glad we gave her the opportunity to do it. It obviously was very important to her. I gave it back to her because it was lying there on the floor and I felt a flash of empathy. Empathy for a woman I cared about once a long, long time ago. And there you have it. A leg on the floor of Le Cirque.”
It really was a crazy episode. What do you think? Do you agree with Carole? Let us know!

Carol is spot on. I truly can’t understand what’s motivating Aviva’s actions. Jealousy over Carol’s writing career? Carol was writing a long time before Aviva hired her ghost writer. Just don’t understand Aviva’s cra cra
