Aviva Drescher wasn’t a big part of this past season of The Real Housewives of New York, but she tried to make a statement in the season finale by detaching her prosthetic leg and tossing it onto the dinner table in front of her co-stars. Aviva had just been accused of being fake, so she wanted to prove a point by saying that the only thing fake about her was her leg.
Many of her co-stars, including Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill, started distancing themselves from her because they feel she was becoming too much with her stories and lies. These women didn’t want to film with Drescher, which could have influenced the producers’ decisions about letting her go.
According to a new Radar Online report, Aviva Drescher won’t be returning to The Real Housewives of New York next season, but she may have another plan. The report reveals that she will head to Marriage Boot Camp. Drescher is scheduled to film the show for six weeks in Los Angeles and she will make $150,000 for opening up about her love life.
This is “a good paycheck for easy work” and a smart move, as Aviva “knows how to create good reality TV,” reveals a source about this new work for Drescher.
Aviva Drescher hasn’t displayed any marital problems on the show. Her husband, Reid, doesn’t seem interested in getting involved with the drama on the show, so this Marriage Boot Camp stint could be about her anger with the other ladies. Maybe her frustration is creating issues in the home.
This wouldn’t be the first time that a housewives couple has headed to another show after leaving Bravo behind. Alex McCord and Simon Van Kempen filmed Couples Therapy after leaving The Real Housewives of New York. They claimed that they were on the brink of divorce.
According to The Inquisitr, various sources have confirmed Aviva Drescher’s exit from The Real Housewives of New York. Very few ladies want to film with Drescher, which makes it hard for producers to involve her in the show’s story lines.
Heather Thomson has said that Aviva Drescher wanted more money for filming the show. Heather and Ramona Singer have been able to promote their respective companies on the show, so they enjoy the paychecks they get. Aviva, on the other hand, has been a stay-at-home mother and may look to gain more money from Bravo.
There had been reports of several housewives holding up the filming last season and Heather’s comments could indicate that Aviva was the one halting production, due to her desire to pocket more money.
