‘Real Housewives of New York’ Recap: Aviva Drescher’s Father Knows Less
Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched Monday’s episode, “Don’t Make Room For Daddy.”
The housewives may have returned from the St. Barths trip from hell, but the drama accompanied them back to Gotham. All the divas agreed it was high time Aviva let go of her feud with Ramona and Sonja Morgan, but that was one bone Aviva couldn’t help continuing to pick!
Mrs. Drescher summoned Ramona to lunch. She was furious over a conversation La Singer had with her ex-husband, concerning Aviva’s phobias. Ramona claimed she simply wanted to find out what Aviva’s issues were, since Aviva had been completely out of line re: the verbal assault she unleashed on Sonja and her.
Does Aviva really suffer from phobias, or is she just too attached to her husband? Ramona wondered. Aviva lit into the blonde mogul, stating she should worry about her own issues — namely Ramona’s alleged drinking problem and her hubby’s rumored lack of fidelity. Meow! A fed up Ramona retreated from their hostile meal, insisting all was right in her world, unlike Aviva’s.
The biggest WTF moment happened at Ramona’s charity event for victims of domestic violence. Sonja, Carole Radizwill, LuAnn de Lesseps and Heather Thomson were all on hand to support Ramona. Ms. Singer recalled her harrowing showdown with Aviva to the women. Ramona admitted she had given Aviva an invite to the event — prior to their dust up.
While Ramona was certain Aviva wouldn’t show, she said if she did, she’d welcome her. After all, it was for charity!
The women were shocked when George, Aviva’s dad, arrived with a check on his daughter’s behalf, and a few choice words for Ramona! George let Ramona know it wasn’t nice of her to belittle Aviva’s phobias. When George said Aviva deserved an apology, Ramona balked at his suggestion.
Instead of a mea culpa, Ramona launched into a recitation of all the heinous things Aviva had said about her and Sonja. As the pair continued to bicker about who owed who an apology, George made the huge boo-boo of grabbing Ramona’s arm to gain her attention. A frazzled Ramona demanded George take his check and hit the bricks! Maybe, George had better luck convincing the security guards, who tossed him out, that his little girl deserved an apology?
OMG!: Sonja finally deciding to move on from her ex-husband by taking his picture down.
Thank you, TV gods.: All the women agreeing Aviva was out of line for sending George to the event.
Awk-ward: Aviva’s dad remarking, “Incest is the bestest.” How gross was he?
Hotness: The gowns the models showcased at the event. Très chic!
Fab-u-lous: The ladies were all knockouts at Ramona’s charity event.
Can. Not. Wait.: I’m excited for the explosive season finale next week. Can you say “Dra-ma?”
