After Ramona Singer and Aviva Drescher battled it out in St. Barth's party Monday on The Real Housewives of New York City, Singer, 55, blogs with Us Weekly about her side of their heated exchange.
What an episode! I watched it three times to take it all in.
The original plan with Aviva was that if she was able to come to St. Barths, she would have [husband] Reid fly her there and he would stay at another place so it stayed a "girls trip." We were all happy she was coming, but surprised Reid was now staying at the same villa as all the girls. Just because we discussed him not staying with us does not mean we were throwing him out.
No one was more shocked than me when Aviva lost her mind. I did tell her we discussed how dynamics would change when Reid would come. The dynamics would change even if Aviva came by herself!
LuAnn [de Lesseps] threw me under the bus when she said I wanted him to go to a hotel. LuAnn had just said the day before that the "dynamics would change" in my bedroom. She had said it herself! She had such a smirk on her face when Aviva went after me. LuAnn, who always likes to play Miss Diplomat, did nothing to help calm Aviva down.
I was quite speechless with Aviva's rage. We were all having the best time before she arrived and now this crazy, raving Aviva shows up. Shades of Scary Island were coming back to me. What was I to do? I decided to calm Aviva down. I said, "I'm sorry for what just happened. I'm glad you're here and do whatever it is to make you and Reid happy." What more could I do? Imagine my shock when I hear that Queen Aviva wanted a party in her honor and a red carpet! Aviva, who claims that she doesn't want special attention because of her leg or to be treated any differently, now wants all of us to do this.
As shocking as that was, what shocked me the most is when Aviva compared not being sorry for calling us white trash to the same as Rush Limbaugh calling a student a whore.
Watch the next few weeks to see more Aviva rage. Last night was nothing compared to what's to come!
