Real Housewives of New York star Heather Thomson managed to steer clear of most of the drama surrounding Aviva Drescher during (and after) the Season 5 trip to St. Barts, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have an opinion on what went down.
According to Heather's Bravo blog, she thinks the reason Aviva kept going on and on about her dramatic run-ins with Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan, even after returning from the group vacation on Season 5, Episode 16: “What Happens in St. Barts Doesn’t Stay in St. Barts,” is that she’s self-important.
Aviva’s gripe with the gals, of course, began upon her arrival to St. Barths. She brought along hubby Reid in order to cope with her anxiety over flying in a small plane, and when she discovered Ramonja’s plan to give Reid the boot, she let loose on the duo … and then wouldn't let it go.
Heather wrote in her latest Bravo blog, “For someone who hated the trip to St. Barths as much as Aviva did, she sure does love talking about it.”
“I am starting to think her biggest problem might be her self-importance,” she continued. “I really want her to let this all go and be the fun, smart, beautiful Aviva that I enjoy being with … even when we disagree. She is still there, I just have to find her because I am feeling that if Aviva doesn’t let this go very soon and can’t apologize to start mending fences with Samonja sincerely, it will be too late. And potentially in the end, Aviva will be the one that is really hurt and I, for one, don’t want that.”
Harsh words, especially since they’re coming from a fellow member of Team Newcomers. Aviva must’ve really gotten under Heather’s skin for her to react so bluntly.
For what it’s worth, Aviva has now apologized to Sonja for her turn of phrase (specifically, calling Ramonja “white trash”) but will it be enough? That remains to be seen.
The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
