The first off-camera drama of The Real Housewives of New York Season 5  is upon us, and it involves Aviva Drescher, her 10-year-old son Harrison, and the man everyone has apparently slept with, Harry Dubin. Aviva tells the NY Post that Harry, her ex-husband and Harrison’s father, owes her $294,372 in child support, plus $50,000 in private school and summer camp fees.

“I am very sad that his father has abandoned his son,” Aviva says. “I empathize with all women and children who have been hurt by deadbeat dads.” And sources back up her claims, telling the Post that Harry hasn’t paid child support for over a year.

One of the most surprising allegations comes from a source who claims, “Even if Harry is bitter about the divorce, his son shouldn’t have to suffer. He has no health insurance.” Aviva’s 10-year-old son has no health insurance? That would be shocking, considering the lavish Manhattan home she lives in with husband Reid Drescher and her four children. Not to mention the fact that Harry is reportedly a wealthy real estate investor who should be able to support his son.

Aviva also says that Harry Dubin’s parents, once known as the “definitive Washington power couple,” have refused to help her, choosing to “divorce themselves” from their grandson’s life altogether.

We have a feeling that Harry will respond to these very public accusations any day now. And we can’t help wondering whose side LuAnn de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan will wind up on — their former lover or their new friend?

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