Aviva Drescher Hopes LuAnn De Lesseps Doesn’t Get Fired For Resurrecting #BookGate At ‘RHONY’ Reunion
Former Bravo housewife Aviva Drescher has inserted herself in the current drama between LuAnn de Lesseps and Carole Radziwill. On Thursday, Aviva retweeted the link to an article that reports LuAnn exposed Carole’s ghostwriter while filming The Real Housewives of New York City season 7 reunion show, which led Carole to demand that Bravo edit out the accusation.
Part 1 of the season 7 reunion show aired on Tuesday night. The episode showed LuAnn and Carole arguing over Carole’s relationship with the much younger private chef Adam Kenworthy. LuAnn was not shown accusing Carole of not writing her books. Could this be because Carole had it edited out?
On Tuesday, Naughty But Nice Rob reported that during the reunion filming, LuAnn outed Carole’s ghostwriter for her memoir What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship and Love. A source told the website that Carole’s ex-sister-in-law was the one who wrote the book.
“LuAnn has the name and all the details. It is Carole’s ex sister in-law, who is now divorced from her brother. LuAnn knows the name and all the details because the lady is now ghost writing Kelly Binsimon’s book too. Carole got so nasty at the reunion, [about] LuAnn not only ending her friendship, but also expos[ing] all [of] Carole lies.”
Another source added that Carole Radziwill is “freaking out” that viewers will see LuAnn de Lesseps exposing her secret on the second or third part of the reunion.
“Carole was busted and now wants it edited out, she is freaking out. This explains why she has only had one successful book….she didn’t write it. Her second book – which she did write – was a total disaster.
A Real Housewives of New York City viewer tweeted the link to a website article that recapped what Naughty But Nice Rob originally reported and added that Aviva Drescher has been redeemed. Aviva, who was a starring cast member during seasons 5 and 6, retweeted the viewer’s tweet and implied that she was fired for telling the truth about Carole. On the sixth season, Aviva accused Carole of using a ghostwriter for her memoir, which kicked off a feud between the two dubbed by the network as “#BookGate.”

Yet, according to executive producer Andy Cohen, Aviva Drescher’s firing didn’t happen because she exposed anything about Carole Radziwill but simply because viewers didn’t like her. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Andy said during an Ask Andy segment in December 2014 that Aviva’s firing was “a situation where [they] listened to fans.”
Part 2 of The Real Housewives of New York City season 7 reunion show airs next Tuesday. On Wednesday, LuAnn de Lesseps posted a tweet that hinted that viewers will see more drama between her and Carole Radziwill.
