After spending the better part of this Real Housewives of New York City season hyping the scene where Aviva Drescher’s prosthetic leg ended up on the floor, we finally got to see how it came to be on the season finale: Aviva took the leg off, declared it was the only fake thing about her and then flung it aside. It was Housewives melodrama at its very best.
“There were three shrews attacking me, and I really just wanted them to zip it,” Aviva told People about what drove her to the edge when the scene was filmed a year ago. “Some people throw down their glasses when they get angry and I just threw down my prosthesis. And you know what? It worked. They fled.”
Although the tactic isn’t something most of us would do — if, you know, we all had prosthetic legs — Aviva said she would do the same thing.
“I don’t have any regrets at all,” she explained. “I only have experiences that I’ve learned from. If I could do this all over again, I think I would, because these girls, they just don’t listen. They didn’t want to hear what I had to say.”
Even though Aviva’s stunt was a big scene this season, she was largely absent for the rest of it. Insiders told Radar Online earlier this year that she will likely “get axed from the show” before next season as Bravo producers try to reclaim the magic RHONY once had.
