On the July 22 episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, the claws—and the leg—will come out! Aviva Drescher will be using her prosthetic appendage as a weapon while dining at Le Cirque, a source confirms to Us Weekly.

“During a wild argument, Aviva yells, ‘What do you want from me? To crawl out of here?’ All the while, she’s shimmying out of her prosthetic leg under the table,” a source tells Page Six, which first reported the details of the shocking incident. The source goes on to say that Drescher “throws it, in front of a crowd of shocked people.” 

According to Page Six, the fight occurred last fall, but all witnesses signed a typical non-disclosure agreement, so the brawl has been kept mostly quiet. Bravo has teased the fight in several promos, simply showing an image of the leg with a high heel lying on the ground.

As she detailed in her memoir Leggy Blonde and on her show, Drescher lost her leg at the age of six in a conveyor belt accident in an upstate New York farm. The Housewife visited the scene of the horrific event in an April episode of the RHONYC.

“I didn’t feel pain. It all happened so fast. I don’t blame anyone for this accident. Accidents happen,” Drescher said during the episode.
