On Monday's episode of The Real Housewives of New York City
, the tension between Ramona Singer and Aviva Drescher came to a head. The screaming match made for great TV, but now Aviva is talking about the damage that has been done.
"I'm alive to talk about it," Aviva told The Huffington Post
. "On vacation that microphone never comes off. There as a lot of drugs, sex and rock 'n' roll. Everyone loves drama. I'm not typically a very dramatic person, but once you get pushed 25,000 times, you might explode. I tend to pick and choose my battles and things that are really important to me tend to make me become unhinged."
Aviva went into more depth about what she was going through at the time of the fight on her Bravo blog
. "Inside I was wounded, hurt, angry, and vulnerable," she explained. "Anxiety is a weakness, which I am not proud of, and I am working on it. I am not totally there yet but all I can do is keep trying to improve."
Aviva also explains in her blog that she had talked to Ramona on the phone before arriving and was assured that her and Reid's presence would not only be acceptable but welcome. However, Ramona has a different point of view.
"Aviva decided last minute to change the plan and have Reid stay with us so, of course, the girls would be discussing this. Who wouldn't?" Ramona wrote in her Bravo blog
. "I decided I had to try to calm Aviva down and get everyone in a better place. I asked Aviva to let everything go. We were all accepting her and Reid anyway Aviva wanted. It still wasn't enough for her. She wouldn't give it up. I am not pleased how she spoke to Sonja and me. She was very critical and judgmental. You will continue to see Aviva being relentless with us and her displaced anger and contrived stories in the next few episodes."
Aviva does admit she is sorry for calling Ramona and Sonja "white trash," saying "Name calling is wrong and I should have used different words to convey my point." Gina PusateriContributing Writer(Image courtesy of Bravo)
