Aviva Drescher wrote her first book, as we all know because of all the bookgate drama on The Real Housewives Of New York City. And she wants everyone to know, especially Carole Radziwill, that it took a village to write Leggy Blonde.
On the next episode of RHONY Aviva revisits a painful place, the place where she lost her leg as a child. At only six years old, Aviva lost her leg when she was playing on a conveyer belt at her friend’s farm. In an exclusive interview with Star Magazine, Aviva opened up about why she wanted to go back to this place and see it as an adult. “My whole life had been riddled with anxiety based on this day, this one experience. And facing the machine was just so cathartic. There wasn’t something big and bad out there that was out to get me again. It allayed so many of my fears,” Aviva told the magazine.
Another reason Aviva wanted to revisit her past, was because she talks about it in her memoir, Leggy Blonde. Obviously the title plays on the fact that she wears a prosthetic leg. And who wouldn’t want to promote their book on national TV? But the book has caused major issues between Aviva and fellow author and cast mate, Carole Radziwill.
Aviva goes on the attack in her Bravo blog that she tweeted out this week, and she explains why “it takes a village” to write a book. “It takes a village to bring a book into the world, as everyone who has written knows. That was a long time ago…before the concept was considered weak by Carole and the “we do it alone” set. Can’t you just see Carole chopping down those trees to make the paper to print the words that no one is allowed to change a letter of,” Aviva blogged.
It looks like there is no end in sight for the bookgate drama. So we want to know – have you read Aviva Drescher’s new book?
