From the look of it, Aviva Drescher’s sudden fall during her anniversary party on The Real Housewives of New York Season 5, Episode 7: “Good Trip, Bad Fall” was just a minor stumble. After jazzing the crowd up for the interesting musical number, she fell down a couple of stairs and told everyone she was fine, that it was nothing.

But in her BravoTV blog, Aviva explains that she was in far more pain than she let on. “Unfortunately,” she writes, “I did really hurt my ankle. What you don’t know (and what I covered up) was that for the remainder of the party I was in excruciating pain.” Yikes!

And as for that strange band that played, Aviva says she didn’t look too concerned because her ankle was way more distracting than the sounds of Cara Quici. “I barely heard the band or how bad it was because my ‘good’ ankle was throbbing.” She continues, “I had to wear a bootie for two weeks and for months my ankle was a problem.”

But at least this Housewife knows how to put a positive spin on things. “Regardless, everytime I watch that fall, I laugh hysterically,” she says. And that, quite frankly, is how you get back up.

The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
