Aviva Drescher finally had her much-teased fight with Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan during this week’s episode of RHONY. The fight took place shortly after Aviva and her husband Reid arrived on the island and less than a few moments after Reid had retired to his bedroom to do work.
Aviva unloaded on Ramonja after they acted -- in her words -- ungraciously. When Aviva and her husband arrived, the two blond Housewives stayed in the pool to swim around in various stages of undress instead of greeting the couple with a hug and an air kiss.
After Reid went to his room, a visibly unhappy Aviva started to tell the girls that they should thank Reid for taking time out of his work to escort her down to St. Barts. (Aviva has severe anxiety about flying in small planes and couldn’t make the trip without her husband.) The group starts fighting and Aviva tells the girls that they are acting “disgusting” and that they are “both white trash.” Yikes!
LuAnn, who has fought with Ramona in the past, was quick to come to Aviva’s defense and tell her that Ramona and Sonja did try to cook up a way to ask Reid to leave the house.
“You’re an ungracious lady,” Aviva tells Ramona. “I heard you were mean, I heard you did mean things. I gave you the benefit of the doubt.”
“Nobody treats my husband that way,” Aviva said in a later conversation. “I would have expected a party.”
In a shocking turn of events, Ramona apologized to Aviva by the end of the episode.
“I care about you, I admire you,” Ramona told Aviva. “I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about [you being uncomfortable].”
Late, Ramona said she never apologizes when she thinks she was acting in the right way, “unless Aviva just came off a plane and is acting like a f**king lunatic.”
Sonja, in near tears, dissed Aviva, saying she doesn’t want to deal with “ego b***hs” and that she has “turned a corner” with Aviva.
While tweeting about the episode, Aviva clarified that she didn’t want “the red carpet rolled out” for Reid, just a “high-five” from Ramonja.
So, are you Team Aviva or Team Ramonja?
