‘Real Housewives’ Star Aviva Drescher Reveals What She’s Learned: ‘Don’t Meddle’ (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)
Aviva Drescher has found herself embattled in drama since she stepped into the world of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City. And all the on-camera cat-fights and bitter backstabbing has taught the reality star one lifelong lesson.
“In all honesty, I think I’ve learned to, especially on television, definitely don’t meddle,” Drescher told Celebuzz. “I don’t like getting involved in other people’s arguments. It’s very difficult to argue other people’s arguments, and I would… meddle much less.”
Nevertheless, Drescher has her own wrangles to worry about.
“Monday is, I think, sort of the crescendo of my storyline,” Drescher admits. “We need a whole hour to discuss Monday’s episode. I really become unhinged. All that biting of my tongue when I was in the pool, or when I was going in the Jacuzzi, or when Ramona was in my kitchen, sort of comes out.”
“I was very hurt, and very angry with Ramona and Sonja and, unfortunately, I called them a name in the heat of the moment that I regret,” she continued. “I feel badly about that. With that said, these women didn’t behave like friends or even acquaintances. It was very disappointing to me.”
Though she regrets the St. Barths trip, Drescher boasts about other moments on the show.
“One of the greatest ones was giving Jake his legs,” Drescher says of a 10-year-old who lost both legs above the knee at birth. Through her One Step Ahead Foundation, Drescher helped equip Jake with custom running prosthetics. “That was just an incredible moment,” she recalls. “He’s an incredible boy, and being able to raise the money and give him those legs was a lifetime memory.”
Another memory Drescher holds dear to her heart involved fellow Housewives newcomer, Heather Thomson. “Later in the season…I help Heather put together a charity function and somebody walks in her fashion show,” she spills. “It was an incredible experience. [That's just] a little hint of something to come. It was really fun.”
The Real Housewives of New York City airs Mondays at 9 PM on Bravo.
