It was nice for us to get to know the Schindlers. Reid and I tend to gravitate towards other couples who have strong marriages and who are good to one another. And the Schindlers seem to be that kind of couple. I brought up my ex-husband (Harry) being in real estate as a point of common interest between us. It might sound salacious on TV that my ex-husband had relationships with some of the women, but frankly when I am sitting next to Reid and I am happy as I can be, I could care less. It is worlds away from where I am now. As long as Harry's and my son, Harrison, is happy, I am happy. Harry has a lovely girlfriend right now named Georgia. She is good to my son in every way. I am thrilled.
As you could probably tell, Carole and I had a blast shopping together. One of the best parts of this show was becoming friends with Carole. Carole is intelligent, funny, and experienced. Nothing shocks Carole, which makes her easy to talk to. Most of all, she is not judgy. Carole has a calm about her and an appreciation for humor. Carole is a real girl's girl and vintage shopping was filled with fun and laughter!
Aviva, you are one of the most stunning ladies I have seen on any "housewives" show? I bet you were a model!! You are a model mom, thats for sure. You and Reid are a beautiful couple. You are tough though! The ladies all talking about Harry?? Harry did a wonderful thing, your 1st son! A gift with you that I am sure you and Reid relish every day. I noticed at the beginning of the series that you were understanding Ramona. Ramona has a very soft spot for you. She respects and is in AWE of you. I think her infatuation of your leg was just that! She wanted you to know that no one could pull it off as much as you did without it being even noticeable. I understand that! I had a person that worked with me and she had artificial limb. She had a limp, which you don't appear to have. But, she would have to decompress the suction when she would get on and off the stool she used (she was a bank teller in my office). One day I asked her and she proceeded to say the same things you shared with Ramona. But, as I understand from Ramona's blog, she was doing what you had asked. You felt uncomfortable because you didn't have a water leg with you?? So she stayed out of the pool, like you wanted to do???? But, you caved with peer pressure. so into the pool you went. Also, according to Ramona's blog you also talked about everyone having their "personal" say about Harry. Ramona tries to reel-in the conversation about Harry. so, my question is, was Ramona being a caring friend about your leg and was she trying to keep Harry out of the dinner conversation??? Everyone needs to lay-off of Ramona and make sure everybody is on the same page about her "controlling" attitude. So, fess up if you asked her to help with those issues. She was being a very dear friend. I hope you can see past her "unfiltered responses", but they come from the heart! Thats more than I can say for LuAnn! She wants to be on a "side", any side if it is against Ramona.
PLEASE go back and buy the jumpsuit! YOU looked more glamorous than any runway model ever. LOVE you on the FRESH new NYHW show!XOXO
Not Liking you. You are an instigator. Maybe there was a lot we didn't see at your lunch with Ramona, but it seemed to me that you were the one starting all the negativity bringing up Ramona's disagreements with both Luann and Heather. I especially didn't like when at dinner with Heather you pointed out to her that she has a "Special Needs Child At Home". I'm sure she is well aware of what she has at home. I beleive that is why she threw out the comment at dinner about losing a leg. Maybe you need to be quiet and listen.
You brought up the Countess - you can't complain that she made you uncomfortable responding to you. It actually seemed as if you were fishing for gossip - or stirring the pot.
Aviva, I think you are a breath of fresh air. You and Carol are clearly the two new chefs that this kitchen definitely needs! Keep rockin' on!!
Your wisdom enlightened Heather about the contrast between Luann blabbing to everyone about her petty beef with Ramona, while Ramona kept her feelings about Luann to herself. You are very disciplined & insightful! Wise people always realize that there are two sides to every story! Sometime or another everyone will be part of the untrue & exagerated story. You will always be the person that a friend can trust, & come to when one is caught in an untrue peice of gossip. Your opinion will always be valued because of the integrity you have in not believing everything anyone tells you, or quickly jumping on a band wagon prematurely, before you have heard all of the facts. That is on of my top three most valuable virtues a person can have. Also, you are a beautiful woman, & I enjoy having you as a NYC Housewife!
Just remeber that everybody that mess with Ramonea is out of the show (Kelly, Jill) Everybody loves Ramonsa because she is not fake and she said thing in your face not like otjer that goes behind the backs). If I was you I will try to be friesn with Ramona and I will stay away from the two faces of Luann.
I like you and your husband, he may win over the viewers. The other man at the table appeared stuffy and had an attitude of "I will wait and see if I accept you or not!" But Reed just sat there and had the vibe of I am a good ole businessman and smiled and chatted and that was refreshing.
hi aviva its nice to see some new faces you and the other new girls are a breath of fresh air welcome
You and Carole are great.
You seem to have such a good sense of gratitude which is visible in how you treat people. So genuine and kind...
I really hope you don't get pulled into the ugliness with the others. It's wonderful to see you living your fabulous NY lifestyle...That's what I hope Bravo hears...we want more of your type of women to watch.
Aviva, you are emerging as a poised, thoughtful and mature addition to this over-baked franchise. Just when I thought the inmates were running the asylum (I'm talking to you, Ramona), Bravo casts someone with a working brain and actual taste. It is refreshing to see a woman dress with grace and elegance. Don't those other women realize that they aren't shaving off the years when they squeeze them selves into ill-fitting, overly revealing cougar couture?
Yes, I'm sure we will hear a few errant words from you in the future, but I suspect such words will at least be articulate and well-placed. With such a beautiful family, stunning figure and a monopoly on intelligence (which intelligence you share with the incomparable Carole), I can imagine some of the veterans will come gunning for you. It's all part of the game - enjoy and we'll be watching.
Hello Aviva, I want to welcome you to the new season. What a pleasure you are-I think I'm going to like you. You just have to ignore the haters out here-just be yourself. I like how you like Carole-she's my fav so far. I follow her on facebook. She was even kind enough to take the time to thank me for my commnet about her book "What Remains" which I have read twice now. Anyway, have fun with the show. Ramona is a genious in finding the hot buttons, just be aware. She is really not that bad, just thrives on drama. All the best!
I think that you, Heather and Carol may just be to refined to mix with Ramona, Sonja and LuAnn. You're oil and water. Good luck!
I LOVE YOU! CANT WAIT TO SEE YOU CALL THOSE GIRL WHITE TRASH! I HAVENT SEEN IT YET I KNOW IM GOING TO LOVE IT!
Aviva, just love you! Stay away from Luann...she's annoying, but loving all the new ladies of the show!
Umm, Aviva is my favorite. I love her. She is smart, honest and yet, has neurosises—so human. However, she should of gotten that Leopard suite. She was born for that outfit. What a knockout. She is by far the best new cast member.
I am wondering why you always bring up your ex husband especially when you current husband is there. Seems like you are still holding something for him. You seems to be starting to get the ball rolling with the gossip. When you hear a conversation you should keep it to yourself. And as for the Heather lady she is not sitting too well with me either.
I appreciate the way you shared your accident. You should get in to yoga. It could really help you with your anxiety.
