New Real Housewives of New York star Aviva Drescher always seems to have everything together. She can diffuse drama between her fellow castmates, drop some seriously witty lines, and still look fabulous. How does she do it?
Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Aviva at the Around the World in 80 Plates finale party in New York City to talk about who she is closest with on the cast, how she is adjusting to Housewives fame, and her stay-slim secrets.
Wetpaint Entertainment: Who do you get along with on the cast?
Aviva Drescher: I’ve always gotten along best with Carole Radziwill. We just sort of gelled from the beginning and I talked to her the most on the telephone. I do also get along the most with Heather Thomson. This is an experience that we all got into together. Nobody in the world were 3 news Housewives of the New York show at the same time. It’s me Heather and Carole. So, it was a bonding experience. And I really like LuAnn de Lesseps. LuAnn is terrific. She’s really nice, really even-keeled. Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer, not so much.
Have people been coming up to you on the street now that you are on TV?
Yes. I’ll be walking on the street and someone will come up to me really fast and get right in my face. It’s a little startling, but I’m getting used to it. I feel like if anybody takes the time to speak to me or write to me, I am just so happy to indulge. It’s a phenomenal piece of pop culture, this show. It’s incredibly interesting.
Do you watch any of the other Housewives shows at all?
Yeah! I love Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and I get a hoot out of all of them. I get a hoot out of Real Housewives of Orange County. Atlanta is probably my least favorite.
You are always in such great shape. Do you have any workout tips?
I workout on the stairmaster 4 or 5 times a week. I also do this TRX. It’s incredible! You think you are doing nothing and then the next day you can’t move. I also eat a really healthy diet. High-protien, low-carb diet. I try to get everything organic. I don’t eat much dairy. It’s a little obsessive!
