Aviva tries to see the good in people, but ponders Ramona's attitude.

Karen Duffy, a former MTV VJ, lives with a disease called Sarcoidosis. She wrote brilliantly about her plight in her memoir, Model Patient: My Life as an Incurable Wise-Ass. She is a great example of courage and strength.

Next I meet Ranjana! Ranjana was a model in the '70s! She looks incredible. What a beautiful woman inside and out. And, can you believe what we women do for beauty!?! From injecting botulism into our faces, placenta facials, and a buffet of the latest creams and elixirs, NOW we are being asked to make fish faces in the middle of an elegant NYC cocktail party! And we all make them! Lovely.

Keeping it all in perspective, the highlight of my week was attending and speaking at the Challenged Athletes Foundation. I presented a hero -- a nine-year-old girl who lost both limbs as an infant, named Haven Shepard. If she can continue to thrive, I am confident that we can all rise above some of life's silliness.

Thank you for all your support, and kindness!

AVIVA, mmmm, a bit unsual name, my mother's name was Arva.  I read your profile, my God what an amazing resume. I am so impressed with your courage, your family values, your sense of humor,  intelligence and the insight to call a spade for a spade.  I am sure you are a great friend as well.  I was quite sick as a child, rehumatic fever, was told I could never ride a bicycle and was a cheerleader and majorette.  A few years ago, I was assaulted, 2 broken bones in my neck, vocal chords and trach damaged almost be on repair.  Thanks to the good Docs at the UWMC, I am alive, but have a stoma in my neck.  A definite life changing experience, taking a shower is a challenge.  the MOST SUCCESS with your charities!  Coyote Cal

You admit to Carol and Ramona that Heather talks too much, it is always all about her yet you throw Ramona under the bus every chance you get when you get with the other "ladies." Grow a backbone and TELL Heather that. You talk behind Heather's back and then eat her up to her face. Heather is a silly, inane, petty person, don't become one too. Countless is trying to choose up teams again this year and she evidently is recruiting hard. And you seem to be buying into it. Show me one second of video we have seen so far where Ramona was anything but lovely to you, yet you take digs at her all the time. Guess it is true women will bully and demean someone as group. Behavior they would never do without the group urging them on - the mob mentality is not a good look on any of you.

Aviva,  I enjoy watching you on the show.  I have to say I am obsessed with getting a look at your leg!  I have been an amputee for 20 years and I am always looking for a better "looking" Leg.  I have a great fit but its hard to get the companies around here to care about how it looks.  I am working to develop a new cover and I have so many ideas.  I would love to know where you get your legs and who covers them.  Your toes look great.. lol!!  I lost my leg in a car accident when I was 18 and can relate to you!  Its great to watch you!  I hope you will be in touch!  Thanks Shannon

Aviva, For a newbie, you sure do get your digs in, especially regarding Ramona! And you constant negative tweets = not cool. But, I guess you have your own agenda. FYI - you did sort of make it seem like being a stay at home Mom was the only way to be, and I resented that - you see there are some of us not as financially secure as you, and we MUST work and then come home and do ALL the Mommy stuff as well. Lastly, you constant fawning over Carole is getting a bit obsessive.
