Real Housewives of New York's Aviva Drescher: I'm Not Speaking to Ramona Singer and Her "Puppet" Sonja Morgan
Scary Island 2!
On Monday's episode of Real Housewives of New York, Aviva Drescher blew up at "Ramonja" -- Ramona Singer and BFF Sonja Morgan -- during a typically fraught group vacation to St. Barths.
As Singer and Morgan loudly objected to the presence of Drescher's husband, Reid, on the so-called "girls' trip," Drescher finally snapped and called them "white trash."
Visiting Us Weekly's NYC headquarters last week in advance of that shocking episode, Drescher explained -- and apologized for -- the outburst. "First and foremost, I am very much against name-calling . . . it just slipped out . . . I regret ever calling anybody a name like that."
Still, Drescher added, "What was behind those words was tremendous hurt and disappointment in these women that I thought were my friends and ultimately set me up to fail."

Now that the cameras have stopped rolling, how do things stand between Drescher, Singer and Morgan -- plus fellow housewives Luann de Lesseps, Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill?
"We're very fractured," Drescher admitted. "I get along with everybody except for Ramona and her puppet -- I mean Sonja. Ramona, Sonja and I are not speaking."
Another point of contention between Drescher and Singer? The wine purveyor's comments about Drescher's prosthetic leg. "Ramona is notoriously insensitive and inappropriate and very awkward . . She's almost child-like," added Drescher, who hopes to raise awareness about those living with artificial limbs through her appearance on the Bravo smash.
Meanwhile, on last Monday's episode -- part one of the St. Barths getaway -- fans were left wondering about Radziwill's high-profile dating past when Morgan seemed to imply that she once dated George Clooney.
"Carole's been single since 1999," Drescher teased of the What Remains author. "I think she's dated many fabulous men. I think George Clooney would only be so lucky to date Carole!"
