'Real Housewives of New York' Recap: Aviva Drescher's Not-So-Welcome Wagon
Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched Monday's episode, “Vacation, All I Never Wanted."
The morning after Aviva's fight with Ramona and Sonja in St. Barths, the two BFF's were still smarting over Aviva's comment that they were "white trash." "Ramonja," as they are known, decided to Google the slang phrase since they were clueless as to what it meant. Alright ladies, you knew exactly what that word meant!
Ramonja decided to complain about Aviva to Carole Radziwill, who attempted to diffuse the situation. But, it wouldn't be a Real Housewives if mediators were ever actually able to successfully mediate tensions.
Aviva continued to complain about not getting a huge party for her arrival, and/or more praise for attempting to conquer her fear of flying. We get it, she has a phobia. Can we all get on with our lives now? Needless to say, Ramonja and Aviva went to war once again over Aviva's slighted feelings. Oy...
After the skirmish died down, the ladies grabbed a bite to eat in town, where Heather Thomson and Carole tried to play peacemakers. Big mistake. Aviva kept whining, while Heather shamed the ladies for their bad behavior. A trip that should have been a celebration of Carole's generosity, turned into an episode of "All About Aviva."
OMG!: Heather telling Aviva to back off with her complaints about not getting a gold star from Ramona and Sonja for flying down to St. Barths. Stop beating that drum girl!
Thank you, TV gods: The St. Barths trip is over! I like some drama played out in front of me, but this trip was a mess from the "m" to the "s"!
Awk-ward: Ramona blurting out at lunch she has diarrhea. That’s not a thing you want to hear while having lobster and mimosas.
Hotness: The ladies deciding to go skinny dipping on their last night. Even with all the tension, the women chose to go out with a bang.
Fab-u-lous: For ladies of a certain age, these gals look damn good in bikinis.
Can. Not. Wait.: I’m anxious to see Heather have her one-on-one with Aviva and tell her not everything revolves around her. Plus, LuAnn de Lesseps and her talk with her beau Jacques about her St. Barths "adventure" with Thomas.

Do you think Aviva was justified in rants against "Ramonja"? Was the trip a bust once Reid arrived? Tell us in the section below.
