So in her latestBravo blog, Aviva took a different approach to recanting her words and behavior on the show: discussing what he’s learned from being a Housewife.
According to her, being on the show has taught her a lot about herself.
“I apologized to Ramona and Sonja for the way I spoke to them in St. Barts. I was wrong to allow my emotions get the best of me. As a result, not only did I hurt people, but my message was lost. I have really learned my lesson and only wish that I had sincerely apologized sooner,” she wrote. “Seeing myself get over-emotional I know that I have to take a break before I speak ... My problem was that I often said what I was thinking instead of thinking about what I was saying.”
She also admitted that she may have overdone it with talk about her amputated leg. While she believed mentioning the matter again and again would help bring awareness to those in similar circumstances, she promised viewers “you will no longer hear about it.”
As for the subject of her ex-husband Harry Dubin which came up during the reunion with regard toSonja Morgan’s long-time friendship and constant mentioning of him — Aviva wrote that she now realizes the subject of exes should be off the table altogether unless brought up by the person of interest.
“I chose to discuss and portray my ex-husband on camera in the most positive light for the sake of our child,” she wrote, adding “the better course would be to not discuss other peoples exes/divorces without invitation. The stakes are just too high where children are involved.”
Sounds like Aviva’s hoping to start anew if and when she returns for Season 6!
