Aviva Drescher- It Was NOT Carole’s Place To Tell The Story In “What Remains”



We can’t even begin to pretend we understand the comments Aviva Drescher made to Buzzfeed Saturday in response to an interview they did with Carole Radziwill. 

In her response, Aviva goes on about Carole’s memoir “What Remains.” Lest we forget, Carole’s memoir is about her husband dying and about her cousins, John F. Kennedy Jr. and Caroline Kennedy, dying in an untimely plane crash. All of these unfortunate events happened during the same summer. Aviva is now claiming this wasn’t Carole’s place to tell this  stoery (*cue the confused looks*). 

Aviva says, “It was her first book. She’d never written a book before. It’s not implausible that Carole had a ghost, it’s very plausible. It was a very important book that she wrote where she spoke about people who had died. It really was not her place to tell that story. It really wasn’t her place. She did do that. And there were a lot of people who were very angry about her telling that story.”

She continued, “You know, I think that the Kennedy family — it was very much the experience of the Kennedy family. It’s her place to speak about that, but it was also about a family who is going down in the history of America. Maybe there were members of the family who wanted to tell that story. Maybe his mom wanted to tell that story.”

Aviva wasn’t done, claiming, “I’m of the opinion that she’s made a career out of it. Off their name. That’s my opinion. That she’s made a career off their name, and off of that entire — what would she have written a book about? I’m of the opinion that she made a career off the name, and off the family. But that’s my opinion.”

Uh… Let’s just say we’re glad Carole responded. Carole said, “Aside from the gross factual inaccuracies and the general nastiness we’ve all grown to expect from Ms. Drescher, her assertions here are nothing more than the rantings of a woman who has proven she will do or say anything to be on a reality show. I apologize that you have wasted your time in reading it. And be careful, Buzzfeed, she’s sounds angry. Be prepared to have a leg thrown through your website.”

What do you think? Whose side are you on? Let us know!
