During last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, Aviva Drescher’s father, George, got engaged. And considering it was the first time Aviva met George’s girlfriend, Cody, it came as a surprise.
Despite the fact that the proposal seemingly came out of nowhere, and the fact that George is 82 and Cody is 25, Aviva is very happy for her father.
“I am so thrilled for my father and Cody because they are happy,” Aviva wrote on her Bravo blog. “Cody is lovely, smart and mature. My kids love her and as I write this, my father and Cody are returning from Europe. They are both consenting adults and love is love.”
Aviva goes on to talk about how difficult it can be at times to have a dad like hers.
“People’s dads are often a bit embarrassing to them,” she said. “The only difference here is that my dad is REALLY embarrassing. I mean big-time, huge, Godzilla embarrassing. Now that he’s found happiness with Cody, he should be a little less … assuming he stops trying to bed everything that moves.”
Aviva’s co-stars, who have had run-ins with George themselves, also had plenty to say about his engagement. Sonja Morgan, who Aviva tried to set up with George last season, just seems to be glad it’s Cody getting engaged and not her.
“George was a surprise. Cody was a surprise. The marriage proposal was a surprise. PS: I like Cody. I felt she deserved a better proposal,” Sonja wrote on her Bravo blog. “George asking Harry and I to double date was quite a surprise. George giving his daughter sex tips in her bedroom was very much a surprise. That was the limit. Like I said when Aviva tried to set me up with her dad — that was date crime. Hate crime is one thing but this is called date crime! She did not really think we were a pair, did she?”
And leave it to the Countess to object to the etiquette of George’s proposal.
“I think George’s girlfriend looks sweet and she’s pretty, but there must be a screw loose somewhere?” LuAnn de Lesseps wrote on her Bravo blog. “At this point, nothing George does shocks me. He loves to shock and if you invite him for dinner you can expect a lot of vulgarity! The icing on the cake was the ring in the shopping bag! If you find a girl like that, George, at least get down on your knee.”
Next week, all of the ladies get a chance to meet George’s fiance for themselves. Expect some fireworks.
The Real Housewives of New York City airs Tuesdays at 9pm on Bravo.
