Fran Drescher Slams Cousin Aviva Drescher for Doing Real Housewives of New York
Fran Drescher, AKA the epitome of class and tact, has some choice words regarding reality TV — you know, since she only starred in such critically acclaimed UPN sitcoms as The Nanny — which is kind of harsh, considering her cousin Aviva is one of the newest cast members on next season of Real Housewives of New York.
"I would never [do a reality show]," Fran told Perez Hilton. "First of all, I don't like them. It appeals to the lowest common denominator. It's not really reality, because they have to have conflict in them to have people sitting there. I've never flipped a table in my life. I'm scared to admit it, but one of my cousins is one of the new Housewives of New York."
Wow, we wonder how the view is from up there in Fran's ivory tower. Okay, to be fair, most of us haven't ever flipped a table (although, there was that one office holiday party...). But the New York H'Wives keep it pretty classy as far as physical altercations go. While the ladies of Atlanta and New Jersey have a pretty firm monopoly on all the violent brawls, the Real Housewives of New York have their own special brand of cuckoo.
Will you be watching next season with the massive influx of new cast members? Or can you not bring yourself to watch Real Housewives of New York now that Ramona and The Countess are the only original cast members left?
