Gotta love Alex McCord for keeping it real when it comes to The Real Housewives of New York.
On Season 5, Episode 12: "All How You Spin It", Aviva Drescher’s known fear of flying became quite a problem for her. She’s long admitted to being afraid of riding planes, so having to take a puddle-jumper to St. Martin was basically a nightmare come true for Aviva.
According to Alex, though, the producers knew she had another, less terrifying option.
“The producers are messing with Aviva,” she explained in her latest Rumor Fix video blog. “There’s a ferry from St. Martin. The producers know this good and well. Why? Because back in Season 1 when they filmed us going there, all the crew took the ferry. They know she doesn’t have to take the little plane if she doesn’t want to. Stop fanning her phobia!”
If she’s right and the RHONY producers did know of another way for her to get there, was their decision to push her for the flight cruel or just the quickest way to go?
