In some circles, it’d be considered a major faux pas for a runway model to refuse a piece of the designer’s ensemble before stepping onto the catwalk, but on Real Housewives of New York Season 5, Episode 18: “All’s Well That Doesn’t End Well,” Heather Thomson let it slide when Aviva Drescher ditched the jacket portion of her outfit during her philanthropic fashion show. According to Heather, the reason she kept so calm about the matter was the spirit of charity.

In her latest Bravo blog, she wrote that Aviva “had a lot of anxiety about exposing her leg, but she was able to put everything aside to help me raise awareness for my charity and you gotta love her for that.”

So when the show got underway and it became “crazy backstage,” she noticed that Aviva wanted to make changes to the wardrobe. “You can’t mess with the designer’s vision and she knows better to push me when I am being pulled in a thousand different directions,” Heather wrote. “Aviva took off the jacket. Wow. She doesn’t fail to surprise me these days, but in the spirit of my charity I decide to let it all go with her.”

Heather was just pleased to meet her donation goal for the event, after all. Way to keep some perspective (and more importantly avoid warring with Aviva), Heather!

The Real Housewives of New York Season 5 Reunion airs on Monday, October 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
