On last week's episode
of The Real Housewives of New York City
, viewers were treated to some quality entertainment via Aviva Drescher's sex-crazed father George. It seemed that his presence as well as Ramona Singer's maniac behavior is starting to put a wedge between Aviva and Ramona, who were formerly allies.
First, Aviva expressed her displeasure with Ramona for her controlling behavior when it came to the buoyancy of her artificial leg.
"When people travel, they forget things. Some forget a toothbrush, a blow dryer or even their favorite earrings. I forgot my swimming leg," Aviva explained in her Bravo blog
. "Here I am about to get into a pool with a bunch of women and Ramona starts to go on and on about whether or not I should be swimming. This trip caused me to get somewhat annoyed with Ramona. She was controlling my swimming activities, the dinner party food flow, the dinner party conversation, and even threw me out of a bathroom in my own home. I was disappointed and my patience was lessening."
Ramona, as usual, had a different opinion of the how things went down (i.e., a different opinion on the reality that we all SAW because this is a filmed show).
"Aviva was freaking out to me saying she forgot her swimming leg she didn't know what she was going to do. She was in a major panic," Ramona wrote on her Bravo blog
. "Aviva, even though she has a prosthetic leg, wanted to be able to show everyone she can do what they all can. She was worried how it would look if everyone went in the pool but her. After she went into the pool, she was concerned that her leg would become overly wet, like a sponge--too much time in the water and it gets completely saturated."
No, Ramona, that was you
who was freaking out about her leg being "overly wet."
As for Aviva's raunchy (to put it lightly) father, Ramona seemed to get along with him just fine during the episode, often laughing with him and making plenty of off-color jokes of her own. But maybe watching the episode changed Ramona's opinion of George and her own initial response to him.
"I could not believe the way George was talking! I was so shocked that he would speak and act this way with mixed company," Ramona wrote, who also spoke and acted the same way in mixed company. "It made everyone uncomfortable. I thought the best way to handle this was to make sure the dinner ended as quickly as possible. This is why I went into the kitchen and said to bring the main course."
Ramona also explains her behavior, while to the blind eye might seem like she was enjoying herself and George's company, was really just her being a gracious guest.
"Rather than upset my hosts, Aviva and Reid, I played into the vulgar humor of George all weekend long to keep the peace. This is contrary to the way I normally would handle a situation like that."
As for what Aviva thinks about her father's appearance on the show, it seems she has a more lighthearted approach to it than Ramona.
"My father is my father. He is the only one I have. Don't be totally taken by his horn-dog animations. He is a fiercely protective father. He was a wonderful husband to my mother," Aviva explained. "Overall while my dad and Sonja did not have a love connection, everyone laughed and had a great time."
Well, everyone except Ramona. Gina PusateriContributing Writer(Image courtesy of Bravo)
