Every Real Housewives franchise needs its own wannabe cast member to stir up trouble. Atlanta has Marlo Hampton, Beverly Hills is blessed with Faye Resnick, and New Jersey boasts Our Lady of Posche, Kim D.

Now it appears that Real Housewives of New York has snagged its own troublemaking hanger-on: “imagine consultant” Amanda Sanders.

If you’re still confused as to who this woman Amanda is, you’re not alone. She pretty much appeared out of nowhere, passing judgment on Sonja Morgan’s caburlesque routine — those menopause comments were unnecessary — and throwing herself at Aviva Drescher’s ex Harry Dubin. This woman bills herself as an image consultant? Huh.

So during the April 8 episode of RHoNY, Wetpaint Entertainment partnered with Viggle LIVE! to ask users whether they thought that Amanda was a positive or negative influence on Aviva’s image. Unsurprisingly, 65 percent of users think she hurts Aviva’s rep, as she drags her down with her. Meanwhile, 35 believe she does actually help her… by making her look sane in comparison!

Aviva has definitely struggled to get along with her co-stars in the past, but at least she can pull herself together — most of the time. Barring her St. Barth’s freakout, we haven’t seen the Vassar-educated (and don’t you forget it!) gal complain about plastic cup martinis or snicker through a show, so that’s something!

What do you make of this new Amanda woman? Tell us in your thoughts in the comments below.
