The Real Housewives of New York City‘s Aviva Drescher is joining the ranks of Bravolebrities taking a stab at being an author with her memoir titled Leggy Blonde, due to hit shelves February 25, 2014. As you were probably able to surmise, the title is a humorous reference to the life-changing childhood farm accident that caused Aviva to lose her leg, and I’m sure the incident and the after effects will play a major part in the book.
But, as Aviva has said in the past, “Being an amputee was not, and has never been, a dominating factor in my life,” and the book will cover all aspects of her life. “My wackadoo childhood, marriage and divorce, family addiction, lawsuits, and more,” she tells The Dish of what readers can expect. “It’s all out there! Lots of revelations that are unseen on RHONY. It was very cathartic to write my own story. A very spiritual experience which allowed me to go back into the past and surprise myself!”
Here are the details on the book and Aviva from the publisher:
